Go West

June 15, 2014 | 32

Tuesday, June 10 The road is calling, and I must go! Bright and early I hitch up the RV, a task that isn’t as sweaty as I feared it would be with the clouds rolling in. Then I get on I20 West and…uh, stay on it like forever. Seriously. Alabama comes quickly, Atlanta is always…

Exploring Atlanta

June 3, 2014 | 10

Despite what it might seem, my time here in Fairburn hasn’t been all job applications and festival merriment. I have managed to sneak away a time or two around preparing for the next adventure to further explore the Atlanta area. If you should happen to visit, here are two things I might recommend. Last week…

Living With Only Electric

May 27, 2014 | 14

The campground here at GARF has neither sewer hookups or dump station, and not as many water spigots as campsites. Since I’ve moved from a 50 amp hookup site to a 30 amp one two weeks ago, I haven’t had a water connection. What this means from a functional standpoint is that I’ve hardly used…

Thinking of Summer

May 23, 2014 | 26

This week I have sent in five applications to various National Park concessionaires as temperatures start climbing into the 90’s and humidity levels inside the RV hit 70%. June 8th and the end of the renaissance festival is coming up fast. I’m positively giddy. You see, to me working these kinds of jobs hardly feels…

The Cheapest Internet Option

May 20, 2014 | 58

  For over two years now I have been relying on public WiFi and bumming internet while visiting friends to get online with my computer. While most full-time RVers pay to get internet through satellite, datacard, or a hotspot plan I have gone without since I first moved into Cas. Not having a TV, getting…

Appreciate the Simple Things

May 15, 2014 | 22

Some days I sit in front of my laptop and wonder what I’m going to write about. On those days when I have no big adventure to share, inspirational words to impart, or bits of hard earned wisdom for would-be RVers, I scratch my head and reach for mundane things that some of my readers…

The Smokies – Elkmont Campground

May 9, 2014 | 11

After a good full day of hiking, Julie and I returned to our campsite at Elkmont, E5, right on the water. Last night we didn’t have a chance to enjoy it because of the rain, but now the weather is finally doing as predicted so we have a honest to gosh campfire. I love campfires,…

Spring Weather

April 29, 2014 | 20

Ka-boom! Thunder rattles the Casita and I am wide awake, it’s 4 am. A thin line of strong storms pushed through yesterday evening as night was falling, a hint of things to come. Julie and I were hanging out with some of our fellow rennies and we all joked around, wondering if Student Day would…

An Empty Village

April 25, 2014 | 16

I’ve had an enjoyable week here in Fairburn. More time to read, work on various projects, and get Cas spick and span now that I’m not having to drive state to state every weekend. The weather has been gorgeous too, highs in the 70’s, and I almost hate to say it for fear of jinxing…

Working at a Renaissance Festival

April 22, 2014 | 36

Wow, what a weekend. Working festival is exponentially more effort than attending one, but it was all worth it for the smiles and laughter I got from patrons. I’ve had questions about what exactly a renaissance festival is and what my job entails, and that’s what this post is going to be about. If you’re…

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…

Jekyll Island, GA

April 7, 2014 | 15

Friday April 4th By now, I have made the trek up to Bluffton to meet up with Julie to carpool to Atlanta somewhere near eight times. That’s 16 times I’ve driven up and down I95 through Georgia… and every time I’ve gotten to exit 29 and seen signs for Jekyll Island and thought “Hmm, I…
