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.

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…

What Makes a Successful Full-time RVer

January 24, 2014 | 42

So I’ve been thinking lately about the full-time RVers I know and what contributed to their success on the road where others desired but never tried, or tried but didn’t succeed, or succeeded but didn’t stick with it. I’ve concluded that although money is a big concern, it was not the deciding factor. Despite the…

RVing Clubs

November 29, 2013 | 38

Which are worth joining, and which aren’t. There are a lot of options out there for RVers, and they’re all doing their best to persuade you that they are worth the money spent. After some online research there were two originally that I was planning on enrolling in when I hit the road, but in…

Motivation for Real People

November 6, 2013 | 18

Motivation. That seemingly endless wellspring of energy, concentration, and persistence that highly successful people can leverage at will to keep plugging away at their goals tirelessly day and night. Meanwhile, the rest of us may know what we have to do, but laziness keeps us from working at it as often or as long as…

5 Pieces of Advice for Aspiring Single Female RVers

September 17, 2013 | 18

I wrote this out for a young single woman who e-mailed me asking for some advice on full-timing last week, and decided this part was applicable to a large enough audience that it should be shared. The fact that I got called in to work today on my day off and had no time to…

The Dream Job

December 13, 2012 | 32

Back when I was working at Best Buy, I once had my supervisor come up and ask if I was okay with covering a co-worker’s shift that would put me into overtime. I said I was, and he smiled and said given the chance he’d work overtime too, because he loves extra money, and he…

Top 9 Things to Know About Full-timing

December 7, 2012 | 29

Last week I got an e-mail in from a reader asking me what I thought the top ten most important things to know about full-timing were. It seemed like a good thing to make a post out of, and so I did. Yes, there are nine items not ten. I was looking for broad things…

Setting Up South Dakota Residency for RVers (Pt. 1)

November 12, 2012 | 67

How to choose a mail forwarding service, and what you need to become a resident of South Dakota. This has been long overdue, I briefly mentioned in my write up about Big Sioux that it cost me a total of $382 to register my vehicles (this was back in 2012) but never explained why, and…

At the Intersection of Planning and Action

November 1, 2012 | 14

There is a fine line that exists, in the balancing act between planning and action. Without planning, you’re liable to make more mistakes in an endeavor, or much worse, never nail down what you’re trying to do and wander aimlessly. But all the planning in the world amounts to nothing if you never act on…

Pop Riveting on a RV

August 1, 2012 | 10

Three days ago I placed my very first pop rivet. It didn’t exactly go smoothly, but I learned a lot. The next time I need to do one it should go much quicker. I thought I’d share the experience and explain how I did it for anyone else out there who’s mechanically challenged like me.…
