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 […]
Tuesday, March 31 And we’re off! The sun is shining, the hills are alive with the sound of music spring greenery, and Bertha almost flies down the highway after the wheel alignment and shock replacement. Gee, it feels nice to be on the road again. It’s hard to keep to 60 mph today, the speed […]
It’s hard to believe that Julie and I only have a few more days here at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. Today we work, tomorrow we work, and then we have two days to get ready and it’s time to go! With time running short, we’ve spent quite a bit of time the past week […]
Hey everyone, this is the conclusion of the story of ‘what came before Interstellar Orchard’ that started last Tuesday. The first part is here, and the second part is here. You’ll want to read those first if you haven’t yet! December 17, 2010 The past four months since Revolution Day have been full of ups […]
Hey everyone, this is a continuation of the story of ‘what came before Interstellar Orchard’ that started on Tuesday. You’ll want to read that first if you haven’t yet! February 20, 2010 Wake up before dawn. Get ready in a haze. Drive 40 minutes in the dark still half asleep. Trudge through eight and a […]
September 5, 2009 My roommate and I stand in the campground at Hunting Island State Park, only a half-hour drive from our new apartment. We’ve just moved down to South Carolina from Wisconsin this summer, and are enjoying the change of scenery. My parents didn’t think I’d actually do it. I don’t think they get […]
I ran a marathon on Monday that ran into yesterday. An, aching, exhausting seven hour ordeal that had it’s ups and downs, triumphs and despairs, there were even some tears. No, not like a running marathon, I’m talking about taxes. I must be a glutton for punishment, because I’m still doing my taxes myself, three […]
Tuesday, March 3 Today is both a work day and a jogging day. In the morning, Julie and I head out to clean the Clevis Multrums – the back country composting toilets. The park has just acquired a brand new gator, only one and a half hours of run time on it. It’s green and […]
