About Amazon’s CamperForce

June 26, 2012 |

Last updated on 4/24/17 for accuracy. 2016 was my fifth year working in Amazon’s CamperForce. I think most people who full-time must have heard about this opportunity by now, but I still get a lot of questions about what CamperForce is, what the pay is like, and is it worth it. This article is designed…

Looming Decisions

June 14, 2012 |

In the midst of a dramatic lifestyle change things don’t stay stationary for long. First there was the huge shift in perspective when I decided that yes, I really wanted to go full-timing.

RVing Emergency Fund

June 11, 2012 |

Last updated 3/17. RVs are very complex systems with a lot of working parts that could potentially fail, even small ones without engines like my Casita.

The Cost of RV Living

May 18, 2012 |

How much did it cost to go from being an apartment dweller to moving into a RV in the end you ask? If you want the short answer, I’ve spent close to $19,000 during the past seven months on everything from buying the truck back in October up to this point. But hold your horses,…

Getting Hitched

April 12, 2012 |

As in a trailer hitch! Not the other kind. Yesterday was a good day for getting stuff done. Awoke bright and early at 6:30am to get the Casita hooked up and drove down to Camping World so they could install my weight distribution hitch (WDH). This was only the second time I’ve towed the trailer,…

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…

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…

November 14, 2011 |

So you’ve been poking around on forums, reading blogs, and staring longingly at the RVs that pass you by on the way to work. You wonder where they’re going, and wish you were among their ranks. But then you sigh, tell yourself to follow your friend’s advice and be realistic, and move on with your…
