Boyd RV Park

October 22, 2015 | 30

The move yesterday went fine and now Cas is snugged away in my new home base at Boyd RV, twenty miles closer to Amazon. And just in time too. It started raining this morning and it’s predicted we’ll get 3 to 6 inches by late Saturday night. So no fun outings for me this “weekend”…

Haslet CamperForce Orientation

October 15, 2015 | 28

Yesterday was my first day of work, orientation day at the new Amazon fulfillment center in Haslet, TX, near Fort Worth. Actually this facility isn’t new per-say, but it is new to the CamperForce program this year. As always with my Amazon coverage, I’m going to focus on what’s different this fall from previous falls.…

Heat and Battery Woes

October 12, 2015 | 68

After leaving Caprock Canyons on the 6th, the last five days of my 1,300 mile journey from Wyoming to Texas wind to a close with little worth blogging about. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to get out and explore because I certainly have, but the weather is getting in my way. I’ve been hiding…

Three Ordinary Work Days

June 1, 2015 | 22

Today I’d like to share with you all the flip side of the coin, the side of full-time RVing as a person of working age that you don’t hear as much about. You read a lot about what my travel days are like, what my exploring days are like, but very seldom do I post…

City Museum, MO

April 14, 2015 | 20

Monday, April 7 (backlog) I like saying that I visited a museum, it makes me sound worldly and learned. Well before you start getting any high ideas, this is not the typical museum. It’s a work of art. Made to be played in by children and adults alike. Totally my kind of place. Located in…

CamperForce Recap and What’s Next

December 17, 2014 | 47

This is my last week at Amazon, woohoo! Friday night we’re working half a day (the other half we’re taking as our paid time off – a new perk for CamperForce this year), and then we have a couple days to get Cas ready, and then it’s south on the next new and exciting adventure,…

Get Togethers

December 4, 2014 | 16

Met up with two IO readers today (yesterday I guess, for those folks who sleep at night), Rayn and Jonathan from Holding Intentional Space. When we arrived at the local park in Sparks, Rayn asked Julie and I if we were the kind of adults who still enjoyed playing on playgrounds, and I knew right then…

Photo: Balance

December 1, 2014 | 16

On this, the busiest day of the year at Amazon, I thought it appropriate to bring up again my take on the work/life balance. I’ve worked very hard the past six weeks (just over three more to go!) and it might look to outsiders like I’ve failed to find the balance of work and play…

Photo: Black Friday

November 28, 2014 | 20

When Julie and I went into work yesterday, we thought about how we were going to need to pick up salad stuff on the way home for our lunches. And then we remembered, oh yeah, it was going to be Black Friday. Grocery shopping at WalMart at 5:30 in the morning is great most days…

Photo: Sparks Marina

November 21, 2014 | 21

My current home base, Sparks Marina RV Park. It’s probably the fanciest RV park I’ve ever stayed in, the pads are concrete and level, the grass is fake and immaculate year round, and the bathrooms get cleaned twice a day. I wouldn’t pay for something like this myself but since Amazon is footing the bill……

Photo: Sunrise

November 7, 2014 | 16

Nope, that’s not a sunset. It’s an extremely rare IO sunrise picture. Take a good gander at it folks, because this may be the only time such a creature ever graces the pages of this blog. With 11 hour days and a 45 minute drive tacked on either side, we’re literally working sundown to sunup. Gee, there sure…

Truckee River

November 3, 2014 | 12

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…
