Melrose, FL to Fairburn, GA

April 14, 2014 | 14

Friday April 11 Beginnings and endings are what we remember the most. The start of something and the end of something, that hangs around in the memory clearly after that stage of life is over, while the middle tends to becomes one long blur. Yesterday was my last day working at the OSBS, and the…

Ichetucknee Springs State Park, FL

March 29, 2014 | 27

Friday March 28 For the first time since rehearsals started in February, I’ve got a weekend off. Oh, I still need to drive up to Atlanta for Monday’s rehearsal, but there isn’t one on Sunday this week. I have some precious free time, and I know exactly what I’m going to do with it. Florida…

RVillage

March 17, 2014 | 17

Last summer I wrote two posts about one of the biggest challenges I faced when getting on the road: making friends and finding a sense of community. Not just engaging in passing conversations with fellow campers about our RVs or the weather, but making real connections. I am one of those people who prefers deeper connections…

Self Renewal

March 12, 2014 | 27

This week has been about finding moments for myself amidst the chaos, a challenge that has been made easier by the explosion of life and color down here in Florida. Spring foliage is coming out in earnest now, and to me spring has always been synonymous with renewal and recharging. The extra hour of sunlight…

Your Most Anticipated RVing Destinations

March 8, 2014 | 45

The prospect of heading out West this fall has got me thinking about all of the neat places I want to visit while I’m out that way: the Rockies, the Grand Canyon, redwood forests, the northwest coast, boondocking in the Southwest desert and checking out Quartzsite, and just about every National Park in Utah. I…

Full-time RVer Health Insurance

March 4, 2014 | 23

Twice in the past month or so I have gotten questions from readers who were wondering how the Affordable Healthcare Act (also referred to as ObamaCare) changed the playing field for full-time RVers. In truth I have long toyed with the idea of writing more on health insurance for pre-retirement full-timers. But then I would…

Six Benefits of Seasonal Jobs

March 1, 2014 | 34

It’s no secret, I think my life is pretty awesome. All of the wonderful things about RVing brought up in the last post are great things to point to, but I realized there’s something I left out of that list that bears mentioning. Something I really didn’t consider a perk of constant travel that luckily…

My Favorite Part of RVing

February 25, 2014 | 36

A question for all of you RVers and RVing hopefuls out there. What is (or do you think will be) your favorite thing about the lifestyle? This question is a bit tough for me to answer because there are so many things I like about RVing that it’s hard to narrow it down to one…

Age and Beauty (and Wisdom)

February 21, 2014 | 67

Tomorrow is my birthday. I’m turning 30, which sometimes feels like just another year, and sometimes feels like a very big deal. It’s one of those right of passage ages in our culture: the 20’s are over, time to stop fooling around and get serious about life. Serious about life. Haha, that’s a good one.…

Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park, FL

February 18, 2014 | 8

This state park and national natural landmark is quite small, only 71 acres, but hosts three distinct ecological environments. It’s located in northern Gainesville, and offers two small hiking trails that total less than two miles, a guided ranger tour on Saturdays at 10 am, and a picnic area near the visitor’s center. Dogs are…

Video Catchup

February 13, 2014 | 8

Now that I have a real internet account with the University of Florida (after a few false starts – they didn’t have a category for “stay on volunteer” until I showed up), I can down and upload things at will. The WiFi here is so much faster than at the various campgrounds I’ve stayed at…

How To Handle Overwhelm

February 5, 2014 | 16

Some days there is nothing pressing on my to-do list or on my mind, and it feels like I’ve escaped the rat race once and for all. These days I’m free to do as much or as little as I feel like, as the whim takes me. They are good days, and yes, they do…
