Teardrop Build Reveal and Patreon Info

The order form for Hiker Trailer is four pages long, which I suspect could be quite intimidating for an RVing newbie. As for myself, when I received it my eyes lit up, it was like Christmas had come early. Highly customizable was just what I was looking for. I spent days perusing the Hiker Trailer […]

The Emotional Side of RV Selection and More on Hiker Trailer

If you missed Tuesday’s big announcements about the rig purchase and Amazon Affiliate account termination, read that first! Given our love in this day and age for solutions that are practical and orderly, I’m sure everyone would like a nice, sound, scientific reason why I chose a teardrop over other RV types when I decided […]

This ground cover in North Dakota stayed green long after everything else was bare branches. No idea what it is.

A Full-timer’s Secret Weapon

Tonight I’m parked at a Cracker Barrel in Sioux Falls, SD, waiting to go back into the repair shop tomorrow morning to address a new concern the shop created when they fixed the original problem. I can tell you all the whole story in a future post once it’s over, but really it won’t be […]

Edit: Photo added! North Dakota had some nice sunsets/sunrises.

What Day Is It?

Here I am again, after dark with just a couple hours until bedtime trying desperately to update the blog before my last ounce of energy leaves me. On the plus side, today (Day 8 work-camping at the beet harvest in North Dakota for those just tuning in), was our first short day due to weather […]

Working the Beet Harvest: First Impressions

Hello everyone! Still alive after Day 4 of the beet harvest, woohoo! I’m typing this up while eating dinner, that should already tell you something about what this work-camping opportunity is like. I will be doing a thorough write-up of my time here, never fear! But 12 hour days of physical activity leave little time […]

Mobile Internet Update

It’s been over two years since I last posted about how I stay connected on the road, and it’s changed since then. Time for an update! First, some history. For the first three years living in the Casita (2012-2015) I relied solely on public WiFi and mooching off of friends for getting online. If you’re […]

Owning the Mess

What I had intended to be a quick announcement earlier this week about my upcoming plans generated a lot more response than I expected. It really touched me how interested all of you are in what I’m up to in my little corner of the world. It also made me a bit uncomfortable, because many […]

Answered: Is Parking Overnight at Walmart Safe?

I travel alone and have been on the road nearly five years now. During that time, I have overnighted at Walmarts, truck stops, rest areas, and Cracker Barrels all over the country. I personally have never had an incident in the dozens of times I’ve done it, and I’ve stayed at Walmarts from Atlanta to […]

Managing Analysis Paralysis When Traveling

When I hit the road as a full-time RVer, I anticipated many of the challenges of traveling solo, from loneliness to fear of failure to safety concerns. One thing I didn’t anticipate? Analysis paralysis. We’re fortunate to live in a first-world country, and have a lot more options on how to live our lives than […]

The Grass is Not Always Greener

It never ceases to amaze me how much variety there is in this wonderful lifestyle. I hang out with folks in large motorcoaches with all the bells and whistles, and those who’ve converted old vans to the purpose. And by and large, both are happy with their decision to hit the road, no matter the […]

Staying On Task when Working For Yourself

So you’ve done it. You’ve transitioned to location independent work that can be done from anywhere, and are making decent money from it. No more looking for seasonal jobs that are RVer friendly, this is the happily-ever-after you were searching for when it came to full-timing: absolute freedom to go where you want, when you […]
