The Only Predictable Thing is Change

January 16, 2012 |

Time for another mid-month update on my plans, and this one is pretty significant. As I have mentioned in comments a couple times, I gave my 2.5 weeks notice last week to the job I hate. My last day there is going to be the 27th, hooray! There’s just a couple things to work out…

Favorite Places

January 12, 2012 |

Ugh, and having held out for so long against the steady barrage of colds that I’ve been exposed to this season, I have finally fallen sick. There will be no long and thought provoking piece for your reading pleasure today I’m afraid, but I couldn’t just leave you guys hanging in the wind, so how…

Don’t Listen to Naysayers

January 9, 2012 |

For the longest time, I delayed telling my parents about my plan to go full-time RVing. I went back and forth with myself on when was the most appropriate time, how I should bring the subject up, and what exactly I was going to say. In the end, it just sort of came out while…

An Introduction to Truck Camping

January 5, 2012 |

While it may be a while yet before I get my RV, the truck I bought to tow it with has already come in handy for another use: truck camping. By this I don’t mean buying a camper that slides into the bed of a truck, but rather just sleeping in the bed of the…

3 Tips to Get Started Jogging

January 2, 2012 |

Ahh, a new year, full of possibilities. Last Monday I wrote a post about my take on resolutions and the one thing I didn’t cover was how I got started jogging. Before this, I’d never ran or jogged before in my life, unless you count playing as a child. It wasn’t something I had seriously…

A Word on RVing Necessities

December 29, 2011 |

About a year ago I started a list of the things I would need to buy for RVing. Early on this was an exercise to get me thinking about how much the lifestyle would cost up front and see if it was feasible for me. Once I got serious about it, the list grew at…

Re-examining New Year’s Resolutions

December 26, 2011 |

Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas, Hanukah, or whatever your preferred holiday is. I had to work, but had a good meal afterward and then watched a live recorded version of Much Ado About Nothing – maybe it wasn’t traditional holiday watching material, but it was funny. Now we’re less than a week…

Why Go Small RVing?

December 22, 2011 |

Of all the things that I have decided to do with my life, my choice to downsize and live simply has been met with more confusion than perhaps even the choice to go RVing itself. Most people assume that when you have big dreams and ambitions that you want more, and that more is always…

Give Yourself Permission

December 19, 2011 |

Very often what stands between us and a life of purpose and fulfillment is, ourselves. We think we aren’t clever enough, or knowledgeable enough, or privileged enough to realize our biggest dreams and deepest desires. Nobody else is going to give you permission to live the life you want to live. No knight is shining…

RV Types Explained: Towables

December 15, 2011 |

New to RVing? Not sure what people mean when they say ‘Towable’, ‘Travel Trailer’, or ‘5th Wheel’? Then this post is for you! This post is the second half of the RV Types Explained series. In short, during the four to five month period that I was researching and looking at various types of RVs…

Living In The Moment, and Looking Towards Tomorrow

December 12, 2011 |

Happiness now, or happiness later? I have given this question a lot of consideration since deciding to go full-timing. I’ve already shared my thoughts about how postponing what you want to do with your life until retirement is a bad idea, but I’m still dealing with this conundrum in other ways. Also, as of this…

Solo RVer Safety

December 8, 2011 |

The top item on my parent’s list of concerns when I told them I was going to go full-time RVing by myself was personal safety. This past week, I received an e-mail from a reader who also brought up the subject, so I figured it was worth a post. So far, I have found the…
