Ingredients for a Meaningful Life

While I talk about the importance of following your dreams a lot here at IO, the truth is that it’s only one piece of a bigger puzzle. Many times, people think that achieving a big life-long goal such as rambling full-time in an RV, finally writing that novel, or being a millionaire will magically fix […]

Hunting Island State Park, SC

Perhaps the most visited state park in SC, Hunting Island is a sub-tropical barrier island in the Atlantic, and features over 3 miles of uninterrupted beach and the only lighthouse in the state that is open to the public. I first visited it the weekend I moved down to Beaufort in 2009, and instantly fell […]

What To Do When Your Plan Falls Apart

First off, in the immortal words of Douglas Adams: Don’t Panic. Ahh, plans. They’re good to have, because they give structure to a dream (and your life in general, for that matter) and give you measurable steps to work on. Great! Without measurable goals, how do we know that we’re making progress at all? They […]

Everyone’s situation and needs are going to be a little different, but here is a peek at my personal list for anyone who might be curious.  For those of you embarking on your own full-timing journeys, feel free […]

The Only Predictable Thing is Change

Time for another mid-month update on my plans, and this one is pretty significant. As I have mentioned in comments a couple times, I gave my 2.5 weeks notice last week to the job I hate. My last day there is going to be the 27th, hooray! There’s just a couple things to work out […]

Favorite Places

Ugh, and having held out for so long against the steady barrage of colds that I’ve been exposed to this season, I have finally fallen sick. There will be no long and thought provoking piece for your reading pleasure today I’m afraid, but I couldn’t just leave you guys hanging in the wind, so how […]

Don’t Listen to Naysayers

For the longest time, I delayed telling my parents about my plan to go full-time RVing. I went back and forth with myself on when was the most appropriate time, how I should bring the subject up, and what exactly I was going to say. In the end, it just sort of came out while […]

An Introduction to Truck Camping

While it may be a while yet before I get my RV, the truck I bought to tow it with has already come in handy for another use: truck camping. By this I don’t mean buying a camper that slides into the bed of a truck, but rather just sleeping in the bed of the […]

3 Tips to Get Started Jogging

Ahh, a new year, full of possibilities. Last Monday I wrote a post about my take on resolutions and the one thing I didn’t cover was how I got started jogging. Before this, I’d never ran or jogged before in my life, unless you count playing as a child. It wasn’t something I had seriously […]

A Word on RVing Necessities

About a year ago I started a list of the things I would need to buy for RVing. Early on this was an exercise to get me thinking about how much the lifestyle would cost up front and see if it was feasible for me. Once I got serious about it, the list grew at […]

Re-examining New Year’s Resolutions

Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas, Hanukah, or whatever your preferred holiday is. I had to work, but had a good meal afterward and then watched a live recorded version of Much Ado About Nothing – maybe it wasn’t traditional holiday watching material, but it was funny. Now we’re less than a week […]

Why Go Small RVing?

Of all the things that I have decided to do with my life, my choice to downsize and live simply has been met with more confusion than perhaps even the choice to go RVing itself. Most people assume that when you have big dreams and ambitions that you want more, and that more is always […]
