Photo: Balance

December 1, 2014 |

On this, the busiest day of the year at Amazon, I thought it appropriate to bring up again my take on the work/life balance. I’ve worked very hard the past six weeks (just over three more to go!) and it might look to outsiders like I’ve failed to find the balance of work and play…

Photo: Being Thankful

November 26, 2014 |

Tomorrow, America celebrates thankfulness. Before I started traveling, I would take a little time on Thanksgiving to celebrate everything I had. Now, I like to practice thankfulness regularly, because I’ve discovered it leads to a happier life. There will always be another mountain to conquer, milestone to reach, dream to make into reality, but never…

The Long Game

September 3, 2014 |

“How long are you going to do this?” It’s another one of those questions I get asked frequently from both other RVers and stationary folks when discussing my lifestyle. The answer I eventually settled on is “Until I feel like doing something else more.” Which is the truth, but it’s the truth shortened down to…

Something Old, Something New

August 22, 2014 |

For today’s new blog post I present you with… a bunch of old blog posts! Okay, let me explain. It’s come to my attention that I have now been blogging for closing in on three years(!), and I regularly get e-mails and comments from newer members of the IO community asking questions I’ve addressed in…

Interviews

July 26, 2014 |

On Thursday two interviews I did at other sites went live, so today I thought I’d share those with you. The first was featured on Do It Yourself RV, and it asked ten full-timers the question: If you could change one thing about your full-time lifestyle, what would it be? To see my response and…

Rethinking Home

July 8, 2014 |

When I visited my family last month it got me thinking about the concept of “home”, and how the meaning of that word has changed for me over the years as I’ve traveled more. I mentioned in that post that it felt strange going back to my parent’s house in the town I’d grown up…

Flexibility: A Double Edge Sword

April 2, 2014 |

Ahh flexibility. One of the most adored aspects of full-time RVing. Without a house or apartment to worry about paying bills for, or a long term job that expects you to work 50 out of 52 weeks a year, you are free. Free to go where you want, when you want, and stay as long…

Something New

March 24, 2014 |

One thing that never ceases to thrill me about traveling is all of the new things I get the opportunity to experience. On Thursday I got to observe a prescribed fire for the first time here at the OSBS, it was a lot of fun! Thursday I’m amazed at what all needs to come together…

Self Renewal

March 12, 2014 |

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…

My Favorite Part of RVing

February 25, 2014 |

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 |

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.…

How To Handle Overwhelm

February 5, 2014 |

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…
