Something Old, Something New


Sunset sets fire to the sky over Kanab, UT

For today’s new blog post I present you with… a bunch of old blog posts! Okay, let me explain.

It’s come to my attention that I have now been blogging for closing in on three years(!), and I regularly get e-mails and comments from newer members of the IO community asking questions I’ve addressed in older blog posts… but those posts are so far removed from current and I have so many now that it can be a real challenge to sift through and find them. So I’ve added a new page to the top bar called Useful Stuff, which is a list of different post categories and my top posts in each area.

This is the second part of a renovation that started with the picture updates earlier in the month, there is one more phase to go which will be better organization of my travelogue style posts. If you feel I’ve missed any of the really important how-to style posts on this new page, let me know. I hope this helps folks find the stuff they’re looking for on IO. Enjoy your weekend, all.

Time for another one of my ‘semi-regular’ updates on my plans for this fall and winter, as several people have asked. I’ll keep this short and sweet so you all can get caught up and then back to enjoying these last few days of summer. As always, my plans are written in jello and subject…

Thinking Out Loud

July 27, 2012 |

Yesterday I did a good bit of thinking about what day I should give as my last at The Job. I need to be in Coffeyville on the 28th of September, and I’d like to get South Dakota residency set up before then. The current tentative plan has me off work by September 13, which…

At IO I teach people how to ditch the status quo and travel full-time before retirement, and share stories of my adventures (and misadventures) to inspire future nomads and armchair travelers alike. Included at no additional charge: seizing your dreams, living boldly, and making a difference.

    Excellent idea! I’ll look through and see if I missed anything. Also, we now have a place to come back to for quick reference without all the searching. Cool Deal!!

      I’ve been meaning to do it for a long time, like the photo updates, bu tit just kept getting put on the back burner. No more!

    Thanks Becky. I’ve read your blog from the start but it will be great to be able to go back over some of those great inspirational posts you’ve written so conveniently.

      You’re welcome Jodee! It took me several hours to put this together, glad the effort paid off, haha.

    Thanks, well organized. I have read every blog entry, but this makes it much easier to find ones that you have to re-ruminate on from time to time.

    • Becky on August 24, 2014 at 10:08 am

      Glad to hear it Curious!

    Becky, this is super helpful – I’ve already read a lot of your posts and they have answered a lot of questions I was going to email you about! I read the one on debt, and I totally agree – better to not go into debt to buy your rig. I plan on paying for it outright as well as my scooter. My only debt I will take with me on the road (unfortunately) are my student loans, but even those I”m trying to beat down before I take off on the road.

    Thanks for all the info on Amazon – I’m considering it as an option! And your post on the North Rim got me into looking to see if they offer positions there and they do! It would be the exact opposite of where i live now in that it’s so remote (I’m in Boston) but I think that would be very welcome to me right now. And I have been there before so I know how beautiful it really is. Consider me a very happy new reader!

      I put that page together with people like you in mind Terri, there just got to be so many posts that it became hard to find anything. Glad you’re finding it helpful!

      Yes, it’ll be a big change from Boston, haha! It is very peaceful and scenic though, there’s nothing quite like working at a national park.
