Photo: My Favorite Window


One of the features I like most about my RV is the rear window.  When I’m in back-in sites on the outer edge of  a RV park, I can always leave one window open and not worry about my neighbors peering inside.  The view at Sparks Marina isn’t great, but it’s still natural light.

Today was my last day of work, woohoo! I’ve had a good season at Amazon here in Haslet, TX but I’m definitely ready to move on and try boondocking out in the desert this winter for the very first time. But first, some housekeeping. I’ll be in Boyd RV Park until the morning of the…

Photo: Being Thankful

November 26, 2014 |

Tomorrow, America celebrates thankfulness. Before I started traveling, I would take a little time on Thanksgiving to celebrate everything I had. Now, I like to practice thankfulness regularly, because I’ve discovered it leads to a happier life. There will always be another mountain to conquer, milestone to reach, dream to make into reality, but never…

Truckee River

November 3, 2014 |

Day 1 of the photo update experiment (read last week’s post if you missed it). The drive to Amazon from Sparks takes us on Interstate 80 east along the Truckee River. It may be a 45 minute drive to work, but it’s not all bad. Last week before Daylight Savings ended we’d be driving it during…

    Gorgeous photo. Sometimes nature seems more awesome when we have just a slice of it…not quite so overwhelming. Brrr…rain & sleet mix. Stay warm!

      I heard that yesterday or the day before all 50 states got to freezing temps and it was a record of some kind. Lowest here was 15 but with 2 heaters I’m doing fine. You stay warm too!

        Hi Becky! Jim heard that the news about all 50 states freezing–amazing.Two heaters will make 15 seem like a walk in the park!

          Yep! With 2 I’m toasty until single digits, which may happen in Reno, but I’ll dress in layers.

    One window in my family room and the window in each of two bedrooms have a very similar view at my S&B. While unattractive, it is private and does let a lot of light in because I don’t have to keep the curtains closed. It has also been a “permanent” view, one I was stuck with. I don’t mind it nearly as much now that I know it is temporary. We will drive away from it soon. And we’ll be able to do that with every unattractive view we have in the RV 🙂 Especially for that, I love your favorite window (and you have that groovy sky too).

      So excited for you Jodee, you’ll be on the road and enjoying all the new views before you know it!

      Yes, the sky was pretty neat last Friday, it was fun today here too but now we’re getting a rain and sleet mix which is less fun.

    Thankyou for your posts. Am enjoying all info and pictures. I am a weekend camper and a new member of Sisters on The Fly. Maybe you can meet up with them some day. They are a fun group of women campers who love vintage trailers as well as newer ones, Some of them have Casitas. You are right about the advantage of a rear window. It sure makes parking easier.

      You’re welcome Karla, glad you’re finding IO helpful. 🙂 Enjoy your weekend camping trips! Are you thinking of going full time some day?

      I’ll have to look up that group.

        At the ripe age of 69, I don’t feel like taking off full time on my own. My husband is not a camper so I meet up with family campers, Good Sams,and Sisters on The Fly. Also have a pet-sitting business that keeps me tied for now. It has been such fun to look at your posts and share your adventures. You are so brave. Hope you meet some SOTF in near future. They would sure applaud your spunk.

        • Becky on November 18, 2014 at 4:22 pm

          Ahh, makes sense to me. Glad you have people to meet up with while camping. 🙂
