Full-time RVing Won’t Change Who You Are

Here it is, the number one thing I have learned from full-time RVing that I wish someone would have let me know beforehand. Oh, there are other lessons I’ve learned from life on the road, but the big things can all be traced back to this one simple fact. It’s taken me some time to […]

More on Sparks Marina RV Park

As nothing exciting happened this week aside from a lot of work, today I’ll finishing telling you about the RV park I’ve been calling home, and talk a little about Reno. It’s a niiiiiiice place.
