Every now and then I write a little about mindfulness and living in the moment and seeing the joy in where you are right now. These messages are always slipped into other posts, they have never stood alone because I’ve found it really hard to communicate exactly what I mean when I talk about these [...]
Motivation. That seemingly endless wellspring of energy, concentration, and persistence that highly successful people can leverage at will to keep plugging away at their goals tirelessly day and night. Meanwhile, the rest of us may know what we have to do, but laziness keeps us from working at it as often or as long as [...]
Friday Shortly before 9 pm, the TV stops working. I think it must be snow accumulation on the dish. When the last blog post went up at 5:30 precipitation had just turned to snow and it was pretty light, it got much heavier after sundown. The lights flicker for a third time as I sit [...]
Just a quick public service announcement to start your weekend off right: The pie is unlimited. Yep, it’s another pie day. Not too long ago I wrote about Having Enough, that we get to choose how much Enough is, and that life should not be one big rat race to try to acquire as much [...]
I wrote this out for a young single woman who e-mailed me asking for some advice on full-timing last week, and decided this part was applicable to a large enough audience that it should be shared. The fact that I got called in to work today on my day off and had no time to [...]
No small part of my decision to go RVing was because I loved the outdoors so much. To me, going RVing was synonymous with spending more time outdoors. I loved camping. I loved hiking. I loved the idea of getting to sit outside in my camp chair in the woods, in a field, along the [...]
Things have been going very well over here in the Badlands. I’m making a lot friends, visiting exciting new places on my days off, and exploring the natural beauty of the park around work. Even work is going well. I help fellow travelers not so different from myself find the best place to take sunset [...]
This is part 2 of a series. If you haven’t already, please read How To Avoid Loneliness as a Solo Full-time RVer (Pt. 1) first. Whether you fall more towards introvert or extrovert, whether you prefer deeper or more superficial conversation, there are two big areas to focus on when it comes to interaction with [...]
Everybody has their obstacles to overcome, and those of us who choose to follow our dreams and live deliberate lives have more than most. We’re go-getters to a varying extent, every single person who reads IO and other blogs like this. We live with that niggling feeling always in the back of our minds that [...]
I just love early spring. Down here in the land of palmettos and salt marsh we’re getting a taste of it already. The pollen started in the pine trees about a month ago and now there are little tree flowers everywhere. This picture was taken on my trip to Savannah, where these vibrant blooming shrubs [...]
