Tuesday, October 7 (continued) After the lake visit, I hook up and it’s back on the road. We scoot through the southern side of Vegas, then head West through the oddly named town of Pahrump and get on 190 heading into California. This is my first time in California which is exciting, it always feels [...]
About BeckyForget about what the world tells you your life should be like. At IO I teach people how to ditch the status quo and go full-time RVing before retirement. Included at no additional charge: seizing your dreams, living boldly, and making a difference.
Monday, October 6 (continued) It’s not a long drive from Valley of Fire to Lake Mead. Tonight’s stop is Lake Mead RV Village at Boulder Beach, it’s quite a mouthful. The RV park here is nothing special. It’s large with numerous RV sites set up in various “streets”. Site are concrete with gravel between them, [...]
Sunday, October 5 “You’re welcome, enjoy your day!” It’s 8:45 am and Julie and I are at work. The work that supposedly ended on the 3rd. This morning the plan was to stop in right at open and pass the store key back to our boss, pick up two yogurt parfait, and then hit the [...]
Saturday, October 4 With departure from Zion and a return to the open road imminent tomorrow morning, time for updates is limited tonight, but I’ll do what I can. Well really, there should have been plenty enough time to prep for travel and update the blog, but Julie and I got a bit distracted. We [...]
Last Saturday the 27th, the park closed down for the second time in three weeks due to flooding. It rained somewhere in the neighborhood of two inches that day, which is a huge deal for a desert. Again, the Trading Post flooded and the mop had to be kept handy all day for repeated clean [...]
On a chilly night, with a gathering of friends, or in a new place you’ve never visited before, there’s just something special about a campfire. For me, it’s the epitome of the camping and vacation experience. Much of the fondness for them likely stems from my childhood. I have very good memories of family camping [...]
Friday, September 19 “Nah, we’ll use the little string knapsack from Amazon, I don’t feel like spending $65 for a backpack with a water reservoir.” I say to Julie as we stand in an outfitter store in Springdale, having spent the last half hour or so going over the options in town. Little did I [...]
Thursday, September 11 Julie and I are up bright and early today to revisit the north rim of the Grand Canyon. When I drove out there a couple weeks ago, my visit was cut short by thunderstorms and I didn’t get to do any of the hiking I’d wanted to. Today’s forecast is sunny and [...]
A full moon hangs low in the west, playing through wisps of cloud left over from the rain earlier in the night. In front of the truck, huge black sentinels jut up into the heavens, indistinct and back lit. The truck rounds a bend, and the here the sentinels jump into detail where the moonlight [...]
“How long are you going to do this?” It’s another one of those questions I get asked frequently from both other RVers and stationary folks when discussing my lifestyle. The answer I eventually settled on is “Until I feel like doing something else more.” Which is the truth, but it’s the truth shortened down to [...]
