It’s Not What You Own…

If you’re looking for happiness, fulfillment, growth, or perhaps more confidence in social situations, having all the latest and greatest toys isn’t the way to get it. While you might think that buying tangible possessions that could potentially last your lifetime is the best use of your hard earned money, and I know I have […]

It’s Okay to Take A Break

I’ve had a busy and full couple weeks at work. Combine that with all the prep work necessary to make this fall work and it’s been putting me on edge. The familiar too much to do, too little time feeling. When people come into my departments at work I greet them and ask if I […]

Phone and Internet While RVing

If you’ve been thinking about going full-timing, the thought of how phone and internet access will work on the road has probably crossed your mind. The number of options available for travelers has never been higher, and it’s easy to get confused with the vast amount of information available out there if you’re not a […]

A Map and a List

All roads lead through Kansas City. Or at least that’s how it’s looking on my travel map for the rest of the year. My travel map. I’m actually going to be starting to travel, wow. Bluffton, SC to Madison, SD – through Kansas City. Madison, SD to Coffeyville, KS – through Kansas City. Coffeyville, KS […]

Things Are Coming Together

After 1 year, 6 months, 2 weeks and 2 days of dreaming, planning, and working hard it is now official: I’ll be a full-time RVer by the end of September! I had my phone interview with Amazon today and was offered a position at Coffeyville, KS. The interview was painless. Basically it was a bit […]

A Helping Hand

The pursuit of happiness. It sounds so easy to achieve on paper, but is harder to realize in the real world. I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about choosing to live your dreams. Not in some distant future, but right now. But there are other things that are important to the […]

About Amazon’s CamperForce

Last updated on 4/24/17 for accuracy. 2016 was my fifth year working in Amazon’s CamperForce. I think most people who full-time must have heard about this opportunity by now, but I still get a lot of questions about what CamperForce is, what the pay is like, and is it worth it. This article is designed […]

The Disaster That Wasn’t

I have a lot of practicing ahead of me when it comes to urban day camping. I’d be typing this up in my RV right now except that it’s already nearing 90 in there again and hot and airless do not make for comfortable writing conditions. Since it’s morning the sun is still on the […]

Two RVing Tips

There are two things lately that I have really come to understand when it comes to RVing, and these aren’t things the dealer tells you when you’re making the purchase. Keep these two things in mind, and it’ll make all aspects of your RV ownership easier. Keep all of your manuals , guides, and checklists […]

Then came the planning and research stage where many of my free hours were devoted to learning more about RVing and what […]

RVing Emergency Fund

Last updated 3/17. RVs are very complex systems with a lot of working parts that could potentially fail, even small ones without engines like my Casita. Ask any owner, even of a brand new RV, and you’ll quickly learn that they not only require regular maintenance, but that if you own one sooner or later […]

Make the Most of Rainy Days

Many a RVer has lamented weather like this, the dreaded all-day rain that forces one to press pause on sight-seeing and adventuring and stay cooped up indoors where cabin fever can quickly set in.   Just sitting around wishing that the sun would come back out isn’t going to make it so, so I’ve come up […]
