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 […]

The Cost of RV Living

How much did it cost to go from being an apartment dweller to moving into a RV in the end you ask? If you want the short answer, I’ve spent close to $19,000 during the past seven months on everything from buying the truck back in October up to this point. But hold your horses, […]

Living with a Roommate in a Small RV

Friday was the two week mark of living in my small RV. There is still got lot of learning ahead of me, but I’ve had enough time now to make some initial observations about living in a small space with a roommate that I thought I’d share. Now originally, I was hoping to write this […]

Odds and Ends

I’m done with work for the day. It was cool and comfortable enough to eat lunch outside at the picnic table, and now a light breeze blows through the Casita while I type this up and watch the mid-afternoon goings on in the campground. It is a good day. It was very surreal, coming back […]

First Impressions: Freedom vs. Options

I finally had a little time today after work to relax. When I did the feeling I’d been waiting for washed over me. Freedom I suppose you could call it, but it’s a little more complicated than that. Freedom isn’t quite the right word, because we are always free. At any given moment you could […]

Moving Madness

Hello everyone! Quick update while I’m in the middle of the madness that is moving. All the big stuff and some of the small stuff left for the storage facility this morning in the moving truck, what’s left is either going into the Casita or is going to have to make it’s way to the […]
