Sunsets at the Badlands Inn

September 24, 2013 |

Last Wednesday was a moving day. I’m not sure how it works for other RVers, but for me, I never get anything productive done on a moving day except moving. It seems odd that the act of hitching and unhitching, which only spans about 45 minutes typically each way, can fill a full 12 hours…

Picture Day

August 16, 2013 |

I spent all morning typing up a post for today, it was almost done and then Open Office froze and I lost it all and the file wasn’t recoverable, never had that happen before. I don’t have time to type it all up again right now, so I’m declaring today a picture day! Have some…

A RVer’s List to Combat Boredom

July 29, 2013 |

Here’s a quick and goofy little exercise I thought up this morning when I got back from the shower house and saw that the WiFi here at the campground was down. Oh no, what was I going to do with myself with no internet? Luckily as a full-timer there’s always something to do. Take a…

The Places You’ll Go

December 17, 2012 |

It looks as though 8th shift won’t be having overtime this week and my last day will be Friday night, meaning I’ll be leaving Coffeyville once I wake up on Saturday. This gives me more time to make it to Wisconsin before Christmas, woohoo! But since I had overtime this past Saturday, that only left…

Music For The Road

November 8, 2012 |

Whenever I get a post comment from someone who links to their blog using CommentLuv I make a point of peeking at it, I’m nosy like that. Last time I updated, it was Tricia over at Geeky Explorers who commented and unknowingly subjected her site to my prying eyes. One of the first things that stood…

Working Nights

October 29, 2012 |

Adjusting to working nights hasn’t been overly difficult for me. I’m a night owl by nature and have always had a tendency to stay up late and wake up late given the choice. So when I learned that I could make a little extra money at Amazon by working the night shift, I was all…

Ahoy Landlubber!

October 25, 2012 |

A couple days ago I was browsing the RV.net forums and I came across a topic: Best thing about my RV is…  The post had many responses. Some listed features directly related to their RV, like a large gallery, good mpg, low price, lots of sleeping space, or 1.5 bathrooms. Others said things that apply…

A Storm Is Brewing

October 14, 2012 |

First week at Amazon: Complete. I’d say it went quite well, I’m pretty sure I more than met the 75% goal on speediness (after the first two days of training I didn’t once get told what I was at so I can only speculate since my name isn’t up on the daily results list yet)…

Make the Most of Rainy Days

June 7, 2012 |

Many a RVer has lamented weather like this, the dreaded all-day rain that forces one to press pause on sight-seeing and adventuring and stay cooped up indoors where cabin fever can quickly set in.   Just sitting around wishing that the sun would come back out isn’t going to make it so, so I’ve come up…

Video: Brake controller Install

November 28, 2011 |

As promised, here is the footage my roommate took of me installing the brake controller in my truck yesterday. This really isn’t an instructional video. At all. In fact, it’s a bit ridiculous. And man, is my hair frizzy. (Edit 9/13/2017: Old raw video has been replaced by a nicer, edited version.)
