The Waiting Game

May 13, 2016 |

As a full-time RVer, I have more leeway in where and how I spend my time. I can decide what part of the year I want to work, and what part I want to travel. I can more or less decide where I want to travel. I do have more freedom than the stationary person…

Upheaval

April 26, 2016 |

Edit 5/21/16: “Jessica” did not end up working out, but I decided to leave this post untouched other than to add this disclaimer at the top so new readers aren’t wondering why I never talk about her. I ended up fostering her for almost three weeks before driving her down to her new family near…

Thankfulness

November 26, 2015 |

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and enjoying time with family and friends (and good food). As Thursdays are a part of my “weekend” at Amazon this season, I find myself with Thanksgiving off for the first time in many years. Looking back over past posts, it occurs to me that I haven’t…

Endings and Beginnings

October 1, 2015 |

Have you ever noticed when you look back over the past phases of your life that it’s the beginning and the ending that stand out the most? Whether it’s a job, a relationship, or a place to call home, our memories are always sharper when recalling the start and the end of something. I believe…

You Must Be Crazy

July 10, 2015 |

Lately there’s been a lot of comments and e-mails from new readers who are just starting to look into the RVing lifestyle (welcome!). Back in March I wrote a guest post for another blog (CheapRVLiving), and it occurs to me I’ve never shared that content with all of you here at IO. I thought it…

Little Moments

June 18, 2015 |

There are a lot of things I love about full-time RVing. I love the frequent change in scenery, the hiking, the interesting people I meet, the new skills I learn while working, all the adventures I get to have. But on days when there’s no time for adventure, when I feel like being alone or…

Full-timing Has No Hard Definition

April 24, 2015 |

An Ode To RVing Diversity: Some like the comfort of big rigs, some like the agility of small rigs. Some are in motion all year long, some are stationary all year long. Some enjoy the boonies and being off-grid, and some enjoy resorts with all the amenities. Some RV for a reason. Some RV because…

Fluid Decision Making

April 17, 2015 |

When people make a decision about something, the majority tend to think of that conclusion as rigid and uncompromising. I use to think like this before I hit the road, that once I made up my mind about something, be it a course of action, a purchase decision, a political stance, what I thought of…

Words of Encouragement

February 13, 2015 |

Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those people. One of those people who smiles when they see inspirational messages in poster form in the home decor section of stores. One of those people who Likes motivational pictures posted up on Facebook. Heck, I’ve even had one such quote at the bottom of this blog…

San Diego Safari Park

January 9, 2015 |

Monday, January 5 Just about everyone has heard of the San Diego Zoo, it’s one of the largest and most famous in the country. Less talked about is the Safari Park, a separate part of the zoo located about a half-hour away featuring larger and less animal dense exhibits. Julie and I arrive right at…

Beach Visits and Opportunity Costs

January 5, 2015 |

Saturday, January 3 Beach day! Today Julie and I take a trip to El Matador State Park, just north of Malibu. The skies are sunny, temperatures are warmer than expected, and the drive north along Route 1 to get there is punctuated with idyllic ocean views and fun beach houses. I wish I could peek…

Full-time RVing Won’t Change Who You Are

December 10, 2014 |

Here it is, the number one thing I have learned from full-time RVing that I wish someone would have let me know beforehand. Oh, there are other lessons I’ve learned from life on the road, but the big things can all be traced back to this one simple fact. It’s taken me some time to…
