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 [...]

Cleaning Day

A little humor for your midweek. I present to you: Cleaning, a drama. Day 1: “Hmm, it’s starting to look kinda bad in here.” Day 2: “When’s the last time I did anything more than sweep the floor? Before I got to Utah.” Day 3: “Ugh, I hate cleaning. Well, maybe tomorrow.” Day 4: “Now [...]

Interviews

On Thursday two interviews I did at other sites went live, so today I thought I’d share those with you.

Summer Job Reveal

Man, this suspense is killing me, how about you? I received a call Tuesday evening from a person at American Land and Leisure about a Colorado camp host job I’d applied for. That particular job had been filled but he had one other in Colorado that provided the electric hookup I’d need since I can’t [...]

Go West

Tuesday, June 10 The road is calling, and I must go! Bright and early I hitch up the RV, a task that isn’t as sweaty as I feared it would be with the clouds rolling in. Then I get on I20 West and…uh, stay on it like forever. Seriously. Alabama comes quickly, Atlanta is always [...]

Living With Only Electric

The campground here at GARF has neither sewer hookups or dump station, and not as many water spigots as campsites. Since I’ve moved from a 50 amp hookup site to a 30 amp one two weeks ago, I haven’t had a water connection. What this means from a functional standpoint is that I’ve hardly used [...]

The Cheapest Internet Option

  For over two years now I have been relying on public WiFi and bumming internet while visiting friends to get online with my computer. While most full-time RVers pay to get internet through satellite, datacard, or a hotspot plan I have gone without since I first moved into Cas. Not having a TV, getting [...]
