Photo: Camping and Dishes

I’m curious, what’s everyone’s take on doing dishes in a campground bathroom? Acceptable, or gross? In campgrounds that allow tents, I take it as a given, since they have no kitchen to do them in. In RV parks, I get the feeling it’s frowned upon, especially nicer parks like Sparks Marina. In our defense, it […]

Full-time RVing Won’t Change Who You Are

Here it is, the number one thing I have learned from full-time RVing that I wish someone would have let me know beforehand. Oh, there are other lessons I’ve learned from life on the road, but the big things can all be traced back to this one simple fact. It’s taken me some time to […]

Get Togethers

Met up with two IO readers today (yesterday I guess, for those folks who sleep at night), Rayn and Jonathan fromĀ Holding Intentional Space. When we arrived at the local park in Sparks, Rayn asked Julie and I if we were the kind of adults who still enjoyed playing on playgrounds, and I knew right then […]

More on Sparks Marina RV Park

As nothing exciting happened this week aside from a lot of work, today I’ll finishing telling you about the RV park I’ve been calling home, and talk a little about Reno. It’s a niiiiiiice place.

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, […]

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? Maybe it’s because I’ve thought of caulking as a relatively easy chore once I figured it out for myself. Which was the first time I needed to fix a leak […]

Something Bout A Campfire

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 […]

The Long Game

“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 […]

Zion Beauty, A Book Review, and CamperForce News

Looking at the calendar, I can’t believe that August is almost over and summer is on it’s last hurrah. My time out here at Zion National Park has been simply amazing, I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to come out west this year. In honor of that, here’s a list of ten things […]

A New Resource

I’d like to start out this post with a shout out to Russ and June, and Debbie, members of the IO community here, and the couple traveling in the Casita (if you gave me your names, I’ve forgotten them, sorry) who while not devout blog readers still knew who I was. These folks have all […]
