Full-timing Has No Hard Definition

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…

Pedernales Falls and Friends

March 31, 2015 | 24

Sunday, March 29 Originally, Julie and I were going to visit Pedernales Falls State Park on Thursday, but when I heard Cherie and Chris of Technomadia were going to be arriving there today, well, we quickly changed our plans. Their blog helped me a lot when I was preparing to hit the road, and we’d…

Revolution Day

March 20, 2015 | 25

Hey everyone, this is a continuation of the story of ‘what came before Interstellar Orchard’ that started on Tuesday. You’ll want to read that first if you haven’t yet! February 20, 2010 Wake up before dawn. Get ready in a haze. Drive 40 minutes in the dark still half asleep. Trudge through eight and a…

A Wish For Something More

March 17, 2015 | 38

September 5, 2009 My roommate and I stand in the campground at Hunting Island State Park, only a half-hour drive from our new apartment. We’ve just moved down to South Carolina from Wisconsin this summer, and are enjoying the change of scenery. My parents didn’t think I’d actually do it. I don’t think they get…

Dreaming of Spring

March 6, 2015 | 18

Tuesday, March 3 Today is both a work day and a jogging day. In the morning, Julie and I head out to clean the Clevis Multrums – the back country composting toilets. The park has just acquired a brand new gator, only one and a half hours of run time on it. It’s green and…

Speaking of Entertainment

February 24, 2015 | 20

Sunday was my birthday, woohoo! As you may have guessed from my last post, I’m more for quiet and simple celebrations so there was no big party. But I did have a good week. On Thursday Julie and I went out and saw a movie in Kerrville – Jupiter Ascending. It had a decent plot…

Cozy

February 17, 2015 | 22

Monday, February 16 Winter has made a comeback in central Texas today, like in much of the rest of the country. Our grand ambition of going jogging despite the cold was tempered by 20 mph winds and intermittent drizzle… and now sleet. Eh, some other day. Instead, we’ve been doing laundry and relaxing inside the…

The Unexpected Cave

January 30, 2015 | 31

Thursday, January 29 There’s very little information to be found about Enchanted Rock’s cave. If a visitor were to look at the large elevation map handout available at the park headquarters, they might notice the arrow pointing to the backside of the rock with the small printed words: “Enchanted Rock Cave”. There is no informational…

Last night at Amazon, we got about three hours of work in before running out of stuff to do. The managers called all us campers down to the standup area, and while they couldn’t legally tell us to “go home”, they strongly suggested it. So after confirming that we still got our bonus if we…

This is Chance, Julie’s cat and our current third roommate. He’s a special needs kitty that Julie took home from her vet tech job when the previous owner became unable to take care of him. He has allergies, IBD, and no teeth, but he’s very sweet and loving. At 15, we wondered how he would…

Water in the Desert

October 1, 2014 | 34

Last Saturday the 27th, the park closed down for the second time in three weeks due to flooding. It rained somewhere in the neighborhood of two inches that day, which is a huge deal for a desert. Again, the Trading Post flooded and the mop had to be kept handy all day for repeated clean…

Something Bout A Campfire

September 27, 2014 | 30

On a chilly night, with a gathering of friends, or in a new place you’ve never visited before, there’s just something special about a campfire. For me, it’s the epitome of the camping and vacation experience. Much of the fondness for them likely stems from my childhood. I have very good memories of family camping…
