Christmas comes early in Yellowstone. No, I’m not referring to the weather. It isn’t getting that cold at night yet fortunately, I’m referring to the annual August 25th Christmas celebration that most of the lodges and stores participate in in the park. There is a story behind it, it’s not entirely a marketing gimmick. The […]
Eons ago, when I’d been on the road for almost three months, I wrote an article called “Top 9 Things to Know About Full-timing“. Looking back now I still think I did a reasonably good job on it, but it was always my intention to revise it once I had more experience. So here it […]
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 […]
Sherwood Forest Faire is technically a medieval festival instead of a renaissance one, since it’s set (roughly of course) in the 1100’s.

Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those people. One of those people who smiles when they see inspirational messages in poster form in the home decor section of stores. 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 […]
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 […]
On Thursday two interviews I did at other sites went live, so today I thought I’d share those with you. The first was featured on Do It Yourself RV, and it asked ten full-timers the question: If you could change one thing about your full-time lifestyle, what would it be? To see my response and […]
Man, this suspense is killing me, how about you? I received a call Tuesday evening from a person at American Land and Leisure about a Colorado camp host job I’d applied for. That particular job had been filled but he had one other in Colorado that provided the electric hookup I’d need since I can’t […]
Some days I sit in front of my laptop and wonder what I’m going to write about. On those days when I have no big adventure to share, inspirational words to impart, or bits of hard earned wisdom for would-be RVers, I scratch my head and reach for mundane things that some of my readers […]
