Ahoy Landlubber!

A couple days ago I was browsing the RV.net forums and I came across a topic: Best thing about my RV is…  The post had many responses. Some listed features directly related to their RV, like a large gallery, good mpg, low price, lots of sleeping space, or 1.5 bathrooms. Others said things that apply […]

Disclaimer: Again, this isn’t official information. It may not work like this at other sites. It may not work like this at this site next year, […]

Now With More Video

So I’ve been recording little bits of video since I took off last month, and now the first set is available for your viewing pleasure! I can write and write about how my first days on the road went, but some things are best experienced first hand. Now you can be a passenger and watch […]

A Storm Is Brewing

First week at Amazon: Complete. I’d say it went quite well, I’m pretty sure I more than met the 75% goal on speediness (after the first two days of training I didn’t once get told what I was at so I can only speculate since my name isn’t up on the daily results list yet) […]

CamperForce: What to Expect the First Few Days

For new readers to IO, you can click here for an explanation of the CamperForce program. Amazon will pay for your campsite up to two days before your first day of orientation, so with a start date of 10/4 I arrived on 10/2 to make full use of this. Expecting to be drop dead tired my […]

Winding Down from Travel Mode

9/29/12 – Saturday Today’s hike was called Devil’s Kitchen, named for the interesting rock formations that can be seen from the trail. There are three distinct layers of rock that make up the cliffs of the Ozarks area. Dolomite is the bottom layer, it’s more impervious to rain. Above that is a thin layer of […]

Roaring River State Park, MO

09/26/12 – Wednesday Well, I did have one leak this morning, discovered at 4:30 am when the thunder woke me up. It’s the missing microwave rivet again, the gray putty that the previous owner had put around the screw on the top cracked to the point where water could get underneath it. At least it […]

3 Lessons from Driving 1,228 Miles in 3 Days

There is a lot of discussion in the full-time RVing community over what the optimal pace to travel at is. How much time on the road versus how much time parked in one spot. How much driving to do on any given day, and what the best time to arrive at your destination is. Often, […]

Harry S. Truman State Park, MO

The journey South on Saturday continues until I find myself nearing Kansas City again, to avoid running smack dab into it a merge East onto I-70 is in order. Consulting my laptop back in St. Joseph earlier in the day I have discovered that Harry S. Truman park isn’t far from Kansas City, and it’s […]

Big Sioux Recreation Area, SD

Getting my South Dakota driver’s license was easy. In fact, I managed it the day I arrived in Big Sioux without even staying that first night. 9/19/12 – Wednesday Since there was no one at the gate when I pulled in, I self registered. There were three copies of the slip I filled out, one […]
