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 […]

Interviews

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 […]

Desert Experience

It’s now been over four weeks since I crossed a line that put me in the desert. The last time I visited a desert, it was for only a week at spring break, and I was 14. This is the first time I’ve spent any considerable amount of time in one. It’s another check off […]

Bryce Canyon National Park, UT
