The Cost of RV Living

May 18, 2012 | 12

How much did it cost to go from being an apartment dweller to moving into a RV in the end you ask? If you want the short answer, I’ve spent close to $19,000 during the past seven months on everything from buying the truck back in October up to this point. But hold your horses,…

Living with a Roommate in a Small RV

May 13, 2012 | 11

Friday was the two week mark of living in my small RV. There is still got lot of learning ahead of me, but I’ve had enough time now to make some initial observations about living in a small space with a roommate that I thought I’d share. Now originally, I was hoping to write this…

Odds and Ends

May 8, 2012 | 4

I’m done with work for the day. It was cool and comfortable enough to eat lunch outside at the picnic table, and now a light breeze blows through the Casita while I type this up and watch the mid-afternoon goings on in the campground. It is a good day. It was very surreal, coming back…

First Impressions: Freedom vs. Options

May 1, 2012 | 14

I finally had a little time today after work to relax. When I did the feeling I’d been waiting for washed over me. Freedom I suppose you could call it, but it’s a little more complicated than that. Freedom isn’t quite the right word, because we are always free. At any given moment you could…

Moving Madness

April 27, 2012 | Comments Off on Moving Madness

Hello everyone! Quick update while I’m in the middle of the madness that is moving. All the big stuff and some of the small stuff left for the storage facility this morning in the moving truck, what’s left is either going into the Casita or is going to have to make it’s way to the…

Storage Solutions

Free time is getting very hard to come by as I get into the final stages of the move. The plan has changed a little. I’m still hauling the Casita to Stoney Crest on Wednesday, but now we’ll be sleeping in it as of Thursday night – all the bed stuff needs to be packed…

A Tentative Moving Plan

April 19, 2012 | 6

Tuesday night I finally got a call back from Stoney Crest, the prior tenant had moved on and my 30 amp spot was now available. By the time I got the message though it was already after hours. I needed to be at work at 9:30 yesterday morning and their office didn’t open until 9,…

The Problem with Productivity

April 16, 2012 | 11

I’ve mentioned in the past my distaste for productivity. I still struggle a lot with trying to be productive. Why do I dislike it you ask? Because in short, it makes me feel like a horrible person. Let me explain. Productivity is all about getting things done. It has it’s place, but in recent years…

Getting Hitched

April 12, 2012 | 15

As in a trailer hitch! Not the other kind. Yesterday was a good day for getting stuff done. Awoke bright and early at 6:30am to get the Casita hooked up and drove down to Camping World so they could install my weight distribution hitch (WDH). This was only the second time I’ve towed the trailer,…

Fun with Epoxy

April 9, 2012 | 6

Where does the time go? I’ve probably got about two weeks now until the spot at Stoney Crest opens up, although I haven’t heard from them yet, and three weeks until I need to be out of the apartment. There is still so much to do. This past Saturday the roomie and I got the…

A Busy Month

April 2, 2012 | 8

April is going to be amazing, if a bit crazy. I sit now at my computer desk, and through my head runs a list of the things that still need to happen before I move into the Casita. It’s long and kinda scary, but I know I’ll manage to pull everything together in the nick…
