COVID-19, Full-time RVer Resources, and Costa Rica

March 30, 2020 |

After a fantastic New Years spent with RVing friends in Quartzsite, AZ, I turned Bertha’s wheels east along I10 towards Tonopah, and possibly the most beautiful desert… Hi. It’s me. I believe I wrote that first sentence about a month ago, but that’s as far as I got with that post. And then the world…

A Q&A on RVing and Working Online

February 4, 2020 |

On occasion, people e-mail me about things I think a lot of my audience would enjoy hearing the answers to, and this is one such topic. So I’d like to thank Quinn for her patience, as she asked me these questions over a month ago and this answer has been a long time coming. Here’s…

Tiny Trailer Living Reflection – One Year

January 23, 2020 |

People are always keen to hear about how life in my Hiker Trailer is going and now another milestone has come and gone. The end of December marked one year of living in my 5′ x 8′ teardrop trailer (or squaredrop, really), so it feels time for another update. In case you missed it, my…

How I Stay Passionate about Life on the Road

November 13, 2019 |

A long-time reader reached out to me recently to ask what I do to keep full-time RVing ‘exciting’. They’ve been on the road for almost two years now, and while they still enjoy the lifestyle, they miss the intense enthusiasm and joy they experienced their first year on the road. The unwritten question was: is…

Bravery, Stupidity, and Tough Decisions

October 15, 2019 |

I feel it very important, in an internet filled with artistic pictures of smiling people in beautiful places, prose about the wonders of traveling where and when you want, and video clips of idyllic drives and expansive views, to keep it real on my blog by also talking about the bad days on the road.…

Six Month Review: Living in a Hiker Trailer

July 14, 2019 |

The last weekend in June is the first official Hiker Trailer Rally, which takes place near Eleven Mile State Park in Colorado. I arrive on Thursday the 27th to help hold the boondocking spot with Todd and Joe, the event organizers. It’s a beautiful place, with tall Ponderosa Pines and stands of Aspen. The end…

Five Things I Do to Avoid Going Stir Crazy in my Teardrop Camper

June 26, 2019 |

I came to the realization while offroading in my friend’s Ford Raptor the other day that the cab of her truck is roughly the same size as the living quarters of my teardrop trailer. Now admittedly, the Raptor is a wide and spacious truck, but still, that isn’t a lot of space. And probably the…

The Benefits of a Dramatic Change

June 10, 2019 |

For anyone who missed the memo, I’m back traveling in my teardrop in the US again! But I still have some catching up to do from Costa Rica, so here’s another travelogue from my time there. Living at Wild Sun Rescue Center is like living in a bubble. It feels like a completely different reality…

What to Pack for an Extended International Trip

June 2, 2019 |

Phew, I’m back from Costa Rica! I still have at least one more post about things I did while there, but as I just finished unpacking, today I thought I’d share a revised list of what I actually used/found useful for this trip as several people have expressed interest. Becky’s 3 Month Costa Rica Wildlife…

Costa Rica Trip Planning

February 5, 2019 |

So, four days until I fly out to Costa Rica. In this post I’ll be talking about what I’ve been doing to prepare. None of this should be taken as expert advice because the facts are, this is my first such trip and I’m learning it all as I go. Consider this more a recording…

Teardrop Trailer Bed Solutions

January 22, 2019 |

Continuing with the tiny trailer living series, today we’re going to talk about beds! (Non-teardrop people, you can scroll down to the bottom for a little update on what I’ve been up to the past week.) In a standard RV, the bed isn’t usually something a new owner needs to think about, as just about…

Focusing on the Journey

December 20, 2018 |

Today, I’d like to tell you all a little story. In this story, a wannabe full-timer learns of an RV that sounds right for them. They think, ‘this is it, this could be The One’. They get excited at the prospect of having found their dream RV, but at the same time, they also start…
