Back Into Traveling Mode

By the time you read this on Friday I’ll be on the road again for my first big move since I arrived in Wisconsin in June. I’ve found during my time as a full-timer that three months is about as long as I like to sit stationary and I get hitch itch after that, and […]

Lessons on Starting a YouTube Channel

First off, happy nomadiversary to me! Five years ago today I left Bluffton, SC with a shiny and clean (boy that didn’t last long) Cas and Bertha and I never looked back. Wow how time flies.

It’s been over two years since I last posted about how I stay connected on the road, and it’s changed since then. Time for an update! First, some history. For the first three years living in the Casita (2012-2015) I relied solely on public WiFi and mooching off of friends for getting online. If you’re […]

Thoughts on RV Projects

There is always, always going to be something that needs doing on your RV. It doesn’t matter how good of shape it’s in, or how new it is. And for tinkerer types who enjoy fixing and improving things, that can make an RV a really great project. But, a lot of us don’t fall into […]

Owning the Mess

What I had intended to be a quick announcement earlier this week about my upcoming plans generated a lot more response than I expected. It really touched me how interested all of you are in what I’m up to in my little corner of the world. It also made me a bit uncomfortable, because many […]

Plans For the Rest of 2017

Time for another one of my ‘semi-regular’ updates on my plans for this fall and winter, as several people have asked. I’ll keep this short and sweet so you all can get caught up and then back to enjoying these last few days of summer. As always, my plans are written in jello and subject […]

Peninsula State Park, WI

August 21, Monday For having grown up here, there’s a ridiculous amount of Wisconsin I’ve never seen. Case in point: Door County. Door County is the ‘thumb’ of Wisconsin that juts out into Lake Michigan. It’s touristy in a small town way with a lot of vineyards and stores selling premium jams and cheese out […]

Answered: Is Parking Overnight at Walmart Safe?

I travel alone and have been on the road nearly five years now. During that time, I have overnighted at Walmarts, truck stops, rest areas, and Cracker Barrels all over the country. I personally have never had an incident in the dozens of times I’ve done it, and I’ve stayed at Walmarts from Atlanta to […]
