January 17, 2014 |

The numbers are in! Here’s how my CamperForce earnings stacked up this year. As many of you know, Amazon is one of the best paying RVer friendly jobs out there. But is worth the hard physical work, repetitive nature of the job, and long hours? I’ll give my numbers and you can be the judge.…

When The Plumbing Freezes

December 11, 2013 |

It’s the bane of cold weather RVers everywhere, frozen plumbing. Winterized, a RV can sit outside during the harshest winters and come out next spring unscathed as long as proper care is taken to prepare it, they are really quite tough. When you’re living in it though, the water system is definitely the weak point.…

ICQA for CamperForce

December 6, 2013 |

This year at Amazon I’m working in ICQA, which I believe stands for inventory control and quality assurance. This department is neither Inbound or Outbound, it falls under the category of Support, but has the same hours and breaks as Outbound. For last year’s run down on Stowing, click here. Disclaimer: As always, this isn’t…

The Good Life

November 10, 2013 |

Today I have a question for you all to think about. What does the good life look like to you? If you could have anything you wanted, do anything you desired, live anywhere in the world, and money was not a factor, what would your ideal life look like. I’m fairly certain I spend more…

Motivation for Real People

November 6, 2013 |

Motivation. That seemingly endless wellspring of energy, concentration, and persistence that highly successful people can leverage at will to keep plugging away at their goals tirelessly day and night.

How To Ride Out a Blizzard in a RV

October 4, 2013 |

Here’s the best advice I can think of: Either drive until you’re not in the path of one, or stay somewhere other than the RV for the duration. Right now I find myself not being able to take the former advice, and so I have taken the later. Still, even though I myself am currently…

Create Your Own Opportunity

September 27, 2013 |

Just a quick public service announcement to start your weekend off right: The pie is unlimited. Yep, it’s another pie day. Not too long ago I wrote about Having Enough, that we get to choose how much Enough is, and that life should not be one big rat race to try to acquire as much…

Positioning Yourself for Full-timing

September 3, 2013 |

When I look back at the crazy year an a half it took me to get on the road, I realize that I definitely had a couple advantages over other folks who dream of full-timing. Not that it was easy for me, after graduating from college it’s probably the second hardest thing I’ve done in…

How To Avoid Loneliness as a Solo Full-time RVer (Pt. 1)

June 14, 2013 |

One of the major points of resistance I hear from single people who want to go RVing is that they’re worried about loneliness. That question comes up a lot when I tell folks about what I do, doesn’t it get lonely? Some even assume I’m lonely, just because I travel by myself. Before addressing how…
