Photo: Sparks Marina

My current home base, Sparks Marina RV Park. It’s probably the fanciest RV park I’ve ever stayed in, the pads are concrete and level, the grass is fake and immaculate year round, and the bathrooms get cleaned twice a day. I wouldn’t pay for something like this myself but since Amazon is footing the bill… […]

South Dakota RVer Health Insurance Changes

South Dakota has served me well as my state of residency since I became a full-timer RVer over two years ago, but in 2015 it’s going to become less ideal for us younger nomads. The reason is health insurance. With the Affordable Care Act (more commonly known as Obamacare) swinging into full effect next year, […]

Photo: My Favorite Window

One of the features I like most about my RV is the rear window.  When I’m in back-in sites on the outer edge of  a RV park, I can always leave one window open and not worry about my neighbors peering inside.  The view at Sparks Marina isn’t great, but it’s still natural light.

How To Caulk Fiberglass RVs

How is it that I’ve written 349 posts (not including picture, video, and brief unplanned updates) and never done a post on caulking before now?

With 11 hour days and a 45 minute drive tacked on either side, we’re literally working sundown to sunup. Gee, there sure […]

Lake Tahoe, NV

Lake Tahoe lies nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountain range at a cool 6,445 feet above sea level on the border between Nevada and California. It’s the 10th deepest lake in the world at a maximum of 1,645 feet, and is not encompassed by one park but several smaller parks interspersed with privately owned property […]

Truckee River

Day 1 of the photo update experiment (read last week’s post if you missed it). The drive to Amazon from Sparks takes us on Interstate 80 east along the Truckee River. It may be a 45 minute drive to work, but it’s not all bad. Last week before Daylight Savings ended we’d be driving it during […]

Back to Amazon and a Change of Tactics

Happy Halloween everyone! So. Julie, Chance, and I have now been living in the Reno area for nearly three weeks. All in all, things are going well and I’m enjoying our new home base, more details on Sparks Marina to come. We’ve made one trip out to Lake Tahoe already and hopefully will be doing […]
