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 […]

Looming Decisions

In the midst of a dramatic lifestyle change things don’t stay stationary for long. First there was the huge shift in perspective when I decided that yes, I really wanted to go full-timing. 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 […]

Cats in a Small RV

There are a number of things to think about when it comes to living with a cat in a small RV. The cat’s personality should be taken into consideration, vaccinations and parasite prevention should be up to date, and thought should be given to where the litter box, food and water bowls are going to […]

What’s Cooking?

Want an introduction to cooking in a small RV? You’ve come to the right place. I’ve now had just over a month of experience in making the best use of my tiny kitchen and while this is by no means a fully comprehensive article, the roomie and I have learned enough to keep ourselves fed […]

On Organizing and Cleaning a Small RV

It’s now been a month since I moved into the Casita, to commemorate the event I’ve put together another small RV living update. This one is about keeping things clean and organized. The previous RV living update which talked about sharing a small RV with a roommate can be found here. When I started writing […]

Sometimes Less is More

These days less is equating to more for me. I have fewer belongings to worry about, and will be spending less because of the space limitations of the Casita. In exchange for less knick knacks, clothing, and gadgets that don’t really enrich my life and provide only fleeting happiness, I’m saving money to spend on […]
