AAQ: Variety Show

While working at Amazon this holiday season, I’m running a weekly “Ask A Question” post since I’m not sightseeing much and have limited time to write. Have a question you’d like answered? Read more about AAQ here. Today I have answers to several shorter questions I’ve been asked lately. Are you ready? Here we go. […]

Thankfulness

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and enjoying time with family and friends (and good food). As Thursdays are a part of my “weekend” at Amazon this season, I find myself with Thanksgiving off for the first time in many years. Looking back over past posts, it occurs to me that I haven’t […]

This was where I launched IO from. My last fixed address before hitting the road.

Moving Back To A Fixed Home

Don’t worry, I’m not giving up RVing yet. This is just an intellectual exercise to lay to rest one of the fears I hear from prospective full-timers on occasion: how easy would it be to go back to sticks ‘n bricks living after being a full-timer? People who are contemplating getting off the road probably […]

Every park I've work-camped in has included free admittance as a perk.  Not a bad way to spend your days off.

Keeping Entertained as a Working-age Full-timer

I know what you must be thinking, what kind of topic is this? Going RVing is synonymous with being entertained, right? No advice necessary? But wait; as a full-timer, especially a working-age one, it’s not always that simple. For years I’ve been pointing out to future full-timers that unless you’re truly rich, treating this lifestyle […]

This is a progression of filters applied on top of each other.  From left to right: original photo, auto-contrast, color saturation increase, brightness increase.

A Brief Introduction to Travel Photography

Today I’d like to share with you some of the lessons I’ve learned over the years about simple travel photography. This post is not geared toward the enthusiast with the SLR, but for the average person with a point-and-shoot who’d just like to take pictures as mementos of their trip or share on a blog. […]

Something Old, Something New

For today’s new blog post I present you with… a bunch of old blog posts! Okay, let me explain. It’s come to my attention that I have now been blogging for closing in on three years(!), and I regularly get e-mails and comments from newer members of the IO community asking questions I’ve addressed in […]

Living With Only Electric

The campground here at GARF has neither sewer hookups or dump station, and not as many water spigots as campsites. Since I’ve moved from a 50 amp hookup site to a 30 amp one two weeks ago, I haven’t had a water connection. What this means from a functional standpoint is that I’ve hardly used […]

Six Benefits of Seasonal Jobs

It’s no secret, I think my life is pretty awesome. All of the wonderful things about RVing brought up in the last post are great things to point to, but I realized there’s something I left out of that list that bears mentioning. Something I really didn’t consider a perk of constant travel that luckily […]

How To Handle Overwhelm

Some days there is nothing pressing on my to-do list or on my mind, and it feels like I’ve escaped the rat race once and for all. These days I’m free to do as much or as little as I feel like, as the whim takes me. They are good days, and yes, they do […]

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. I’ve concluded that although money is a big concern, it was not the deciding factor. Despite the […]
