Lakeside View

This past weekend I drove up to Myrtle Beach for the wedding of two good friends of mine, John and Tai. Part of my stipulation for taking the job at Lowe’s last January was that I’d be able to get this specific weekend off. One of the great things about a mobile lifestyle is that […]

Working at National Parks for RVers

Thinking about working at a National Park this summer season? You’ve come to the right place. During the past month I’ve applied to several and been interviewed for three different locations, all of which decided to hire me. I’m no expert, but I’m going to share what I learned from the experience here for all […]

Summer in the Badlands

So it’s official, I’ll be working at Cedar Pass Lodge in the Badlands starting on April 22nd, and will be there through early-mid October. I’m excited! Original plans were to stay east of the Mississippi this year and do the Carolina Renaissance Festival with Julie in the fall, but after a couple weeks of job […]

Facing Down Obstacles

Everybody has their obstacles to overcome, and those of us who choose to follow our dreams and live deliberate lives have more than most. We’re go-getters to a varying extent, every single person who reads IO and other blogs like this. We live with that niggling feeling always in the back of our minds that […]

A Real Day Off

Yesterday I enjoyed a lovely day at the beach. I woke up bright and early, packed some snacks and my computer, and drove over an hour out to Hunting Island State Park. When I arrived, it was sunny and 69 degrees. New leaves are starting to appear on the trees, the birds were singing, and […]

Hints of Spring

I just love early spring. Down here in the land of palmettos and salt marsh we’re getting a taste of it already. The pollen started in the pine trees about a month ago and now there are little tree flowers everywhere. This picture was taken on my trip to Savannah, where these vibrant blooming shrubs […]

The Cost of Full-time RVing (by stages)

With my 2012 tax refund money starting to roll in, I decided to take a look back on the year as a whole and see how going RVing changed my bottom line. I have been keeping track of earnings and expenses on a monthly basis for a few years now, as it really helps me […]

Savannah, GA

Since I came back down to the southeast in January there hasn’t been much time for sightseeing and getting to act like a traveling RVer. My days have been filled with work, looking for better paying work, keeping the blog updated, keeping up on e-mail, forums, other blogs, and the weekly girl’s night with friends. […]

Tales from the Other Side

A few times now since I’ve been on the road I’ve gotten questions from readers or RVing hopefuls I’ve met in person who have asked me what it feels like to be on “the other side”. By other side, they mean what what it feels like to be full-timing. Is it as wonderful as they […]

RVing and Taxes

Ahh February. The month of my birthday (which was actually last Friday). The last real month of winter. Lots of nice things happen in February, but one rather unpleasant thing does as well, taxes. Last year when it became clear that I would be buying the RV in 2012 after all, I briefly poked online […]

Help is Never Far Away

When I arrived back in South Carolina a bit over a month ago, the highs were in the 70’s and it felt like old man winter had decided not to visit the Southeast this year. The past two weeks have felt much more seasonable. Days where it rains more than it doesn’t, and there have […]

The Speeding Ticket

Not that long ago I wrote about how important it was for full-timers who workcamp to follow traffic laws compared to other folks, because if you get pulled over for something like speeding it gives the police officer the chance to ask you why you’re in their state but have your driver’s license and vehicles […]
