Teardrop Build Reveal and Patreon Info

November 17, 2017 |

The order form for Hiker Trailer is four pages long, which I suspect could be quite intimidating for an RVing newbie. As for myself, when I received it my eyes lit up, it was like Christmas had come early. Highly customizable was just what I was looking for. I spent days perusing the Hiker Trailer…

The Emotional Side of RV Selection and More on Hiker Trailer

November 3, 2017 |

If you missed Tuesday’s big announcements about the rig purchase and Amazon Affiliate account termination, read that first! Given our love in this day and age for solutions that are practical and orderly, I’m sure everyone would like a nice, sound, scientific reason why I chose a teardrop over other RV types when I decided…

A Full-timer’s Secret Weapon

October 18, 2017 |

Tonight I’m parked at a Cracker Barrel in Sioux Falls, SD, waiting to go back into the repair shop tomorrow morning to address a new concern the shop created when they fixed the original problem. I can tell you all the whole story in a future post once it’s over, but really it won’t be…

Lessons on Starting a YouTube Channel

September 14, 2017 |

First off, happy nomadiversary to me! Five years ago today I left Bluffton, SC with a shiny and clean (boy that didn’t last long) Cas and Bertha and I never looked back. Wow how time flies. Next, you would have to have been hiding under a rock somewhere (i.e., not keeping up with recent posts),…

Mobile Internet Update

September 8, 2017 |

It’s been over two years since I last posted about how I stay connected on the road, and it’s changed since then. Time for an update! First, some history. For the first three years living in the Casita (2012-2015) I relied solely on public WiFi and mooching off of friends for getting online. If you’re…

Thoughts on RV Projects

September 5, 2017 |

There is always, always going to be something that needs doing on your RV. It doesn’t matter how good of shape it’s in, or how new it is. And for tinkerer types who enjoy fixing and improving things, that can make an RV a really great project. But, a lot of us don’t fall into…

Owning the Mess

September 2, 2017 |

What I had intended to be a quick announcement earlier this week about my upcoming plans generated a lot more response than I expected. It really touched me how interested all of you are in what I’m up to in my little corner of the world. It also made me a bit uncomfortable, because many…

Answered: Is Parking Overnight at Walmart Safe?

August 20, 2017 |

I travel alone and have been on the road nearly five years now. During that time, I have overnighted at Walmarts, truck stops, rest areas, and Cracker Barrels all over the country. I personally have never had an incident in the dozens of times I’ve done it, and I’ve stayed at Walmarts from Atlanta to…

On Being Yourself

August 1, 2017 |

We all have days where we lose, and days where we win. When we lose, it’s acceptable to commiserate and seek emotional support from our friends and family. But when we win, it’s a different story. We can announce our success, but can’t celebrate too loudly or for too long or it’s seen as bragging.…

Managing Analysis Paralysis When Traveling

July 28, 2017 |

When I hit the road as a full-time RVer, I anticipated many of the challenges of traveling solo, from loneliness to fear of failure to safety concerns. One thing I didn’t anticipate? Analysis paralysis. We’re fortunate to live in a first-world country, and have a lot more options on how to live our lives than…
