As I was perusing my photo albums yesterday I realized that in many places I’ve camped, I had a picture with a black frame around it: a photo taken from inside Cas looking out. I made a sort of mini-album of these pictures and others with one big rule in mind, the picture had to […]
I’m not a material girl, as I’m sure you’ve all deduced by now. I don’t need a lot of stuff to be happy and when it comes to clothes I’m more about what’s comfortable than what’s stylish. But every now and then I get the desire to dress up, either for special events or because […]
Lately there’s been a lot of comments and e-mails from new readers who are just starting to look into the RVing lifestyle (welcome!). Back in March I wrote a guest post for another blog (CheapRVLiving), and it occurs to me I’ve never shared that content with all of you here at IO. I thought it […]
For three years living in Cas I relied solely on public WiFi and mooching off of friends for getting online, a pretty impressive achievement considering how much I use the internet – for updating this blog, responding to comments and e-mails, keeping up with Facebook Twitter, and other bloggers, and doing travel research. It was […]
Last week was quite busy socially. Met up with Bob Wells of CheapRVLiving after work on Tuesday, he dropped by the Old Faithful area and we had lunch. After hiking the Clear Lake Loop with Jayne on Thursday we went up to Canyon Village for ice cream and dropped in on Kirsty and Art, people […]
Usually I don’t like to share a map of my big re-positioning trips before I get started. The biggest reason is because on these kinds of trips I don’t have time to stop and visit with people, and posting my route is almost guaranteed to bring comments from readers who live or are traveling along […]
Yesterday a reader asked me a really good question, something I’ve touched on before but never fully explained. Since I’m not making enough money to build up a nest egg, or holding one job long enough to acquire a pension, what do I plan to do for retirement? The answer is this: I intend to […]
An Ode To RVing Diversity: Some like the comfort of big rigs, some like the agility of small rigs. Some are in motion all year long, some are stationary all year long. Some enjoy the boonies and being off-grid, and some enjoy resorts with all the amenities. Some RV for a reason. Some RV because […]
Last month, while Julie and I were volunteering in Enchanted Rock State Natural Area in TX, a couple pulled into the park with the neatest teardrop trailer I’d ever seen. It was aluminum skinned like an Airstream, had panoramic windows in front and old-fashioned white-wall tires and fancy curved fenders. I pulled the golf cart […]
Here you go prospective full-timers, a chart of my adjusted gross income and cost of living by year from 2011 to 2014. The income numbers were pulled from my tax documents, the living costs are something I keep track of myself. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a post on this subject, and […]
Live Deliberately, and Go RVing
About This Site:
Life's too short not to spend it doing something you love. I write for those who want to go full-time RVing pre-retirement, and for anyone who dares to dream of a more fulfilling life.
