You Must Be Crazy

Lately there’s been a lot of comments and e-mails from new readers who are just starting to look into the RVing lifestyle (welcome!). Back in March I wrote a guest post for another blog (CheapRVLiving), and it occurs to me I’ve never shared that content with all of you here at IO. I thought it […]

Fluid Decision Making

When people make a decision about something, the majority tend to think of that conclusion as rigid and uncompromising. I use to think like this before I hit the road, that once I made up my mind about something, be it a course of action, a purchase decision, a political stance, what I thought of […]

One of those people who Likes motivational pictures posted up on Facebook. Heck, I’ve even had one such quote at the bottom of this blog […]

The Long Game

“How long are you going to do this?” It’s another one of those questions I get asked frequently from both other RVers and stationary folks when discussing my lifestyle. The answer I eventually settled on is “Until I feel like doing something else more.” Which is the truth, but it’s the truth shortened down to […]

A New Resource

I’d like to start out this post with a shout out to Russ and June, and Debbie, members of the IO community here, and the couple traveling in the Casita (if you gave me your names, I’ve forgotten them, sorry) who while not devout blog readers still knew who I was. These folks have all […]

What Makes a Successful Full-time RVer

So I’ve been thinking lately about the full-time RVers I know and what contributed to their success on the road where others desired but never tried, or tried but didn’t succeed, or succeeded but didn’t stick with it.

Never Settle

Implementing big ideas means an upheaval of everything you know. It’s a time of excitement, wonder, and lots of energy, but there is another side too. There’s a lot of uncertainty about how to make it all work, the stress of doing and learning new things, long hours, and fear about what happens if it […]

Conducting an Annual Review

I’ve never been a big fan of New Years Resolutions, they seem designed to set you up for failure. You create a lofty goal, but that initial enthusiasm isn’t enough to carry you through the whole year. Then you start to wonder how you’re going to pull it off, and all too often it falls […]

Top 9 Things to Know About Full-timing

Last week I got an e-mail in from a reader asking me what I thought the top ten most important things to know about full-timing were. It seemed like a good thing to make a post out of, and so I did. Yes, there are nine items not ten. I was looking for broad things […]
