Relativity (And a car crash)

January 8, 2014 | 20

This post was written two days ago on 1/6. I’m now all caught up and a more regular posting schedule will resume. Up in my hometown in Wisconsin tonight a Wind Chill Warning is in effect, with values as low as -45 to -55 Fahrenheit expected. Thousands of miles to the south, in Melrose, FL…

Ringing in 2014

January 7, 2014 | 31

On the morning of the 28th I’m on the road by noon, having said goodbye to the good folks of Little House Customs. The next few days are driving days with no stops other than overnights. I’m on a mission and nothing will derail me: ringing in 2014 on the shores of the Atlantic with…

More Black Hills

July 19, 2013 | 8

This past weekend (Mon and Tues are my weekend) my parents drove over from Wisconsin and we went out to the Black Hills for a mini vacation. It was nice being able to spend more than just the day there then having to drive all the way back. It was also nice getting to see…

Following Spring

April 19, 2013 | 18

Greetings from North Platte, NE, where once again night time temps will be dipping below freezing, requiring me to pay for a RV park so that I have electricity to run my little heater and keep plumbing and stuff from bursting. Having a RV site also means having WiFi in this case, so yay post…

Hardeeville RV Park, SC

April 15, 2013 | 18

Hardeeville RV Park  is located at the southern edge of Hardeeville, about 20 minutes from Savannah and even closer to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. It’s where I have been staying the past couple months while I’ve been working at Lowe’s. I’m not much for formal reviews, but here’s my opinion on the place.  …

Lakeside View

April 9, 2013 | 16

This past weekend I drove up to Myrtle Beach for the wedding of two good friends of mine, John and Tai. Part of my stipulation for taking the job at Lowe’s last January was that I’d be able to get this specific weekend off. One of the great things about a mobile lifestyle is that…

Facing Down Obstacles

March 22, 2013 | 34

Everybody has their obstacles to overcome, and those of us who choose to follow our dreams and live deliberate lives have more than most. We’re go-getters to a varying extent, every single person who reads IO and other blogs like this. We live with that niggling feeling always in the back of our minds that…

A Real Day Off

March 18, 2013 | 14

Yesterday I enjoyed a lovely day at the beach. I woke up bright and early, packed some snacks and my computer, and drove over an hour out to Hunting Island State Park. When I arrived, it was sunny and 69 degrees. New leaves are starting to appear on the trees, the birds were singing, and…

Hints of Spring

March 13, 2013 | 14

I just love early spring. Down here in the land of palmettos and salt marsh we’re getting a taste of it already. The pollen started in the pine trees about a month ago and now there are little tree flowers everywhere. This picture was taken on my trip to Savannah, where these vibrant blooming shrubs…

The Cost of Full-time RVing (by stages)

March 8, 2013 | 26

With my 2012 tax refund money starting to roll in, I decided to take a look back on the year as a whole and see how going RVing changed my bottom line. I have been keeping track of earnings and expenses on a monthly basis for a few years now, as it really helps me…

RVing and Taxes

February 25, 2013 | 20

Ahh February. The month of my birthday (which was actually last Friday). The last real month of winter. Lots of nice things happen in February, but one rather unpleasant thing does as well, taxes. Last year when it became clear that I would be buying the RV in 2012 after all, I briefly poked online…

Help is Never Far Away

February 22, 2013 | 10

When I arrived back in South Carolina a bit over a month ago, the highs were in the 70’s and it felt like old man winter had decided not to visit the Southeast this year. The past two weeks have felt much more seasonable. Days where it rains more than it doesn’t, and there have…
