If you’re going to go to Mexico, go in a caravan with a police escort! Seriously, it was a trip (pun intended)! Continue reading Journey into Mexico
I’ve been on the road for a few days now, so I figured a travel update is in order. I gave myself some extra time on this trip so I can be much more casual in my pace each day, and that’s a surprising change. Continue reading Travel Update
Being in an RV lets me wander about freely and spend as much or as little time in places as I see fit. I can make plans, change them, and then modify them some more, and there’s no consequences. It’s not like booking flights, hotels, rental cars, etc., all with a fixed schedule so you can get back to work on Monday. This really feels like a much better way to live life.

Good Weather & Good Times
I’ve been in MN the last couple days and have been having a great time. The weather has been a welcome relief from the Texas heat and I had a great night out with Jessie last night. It’s pretty awesome being able to travel relatively inexpensively and go see and do the things I want to do. Continue reading Good Weather & Good Times
Hey look, there’s a giant mountain over there! I had some fun on my trip to Bend. Went to get an inverter diagnosed, and spoiler, ended up with some new batteries. Continue reading Giant Mountain!
Arrival and Getting Stuck
I got to Seaside Oregon today, and promptly got stuck. Spent some time on the beach, diagnosed an inverter issue, and am staying the night at Dismal Nitch. Continue reading Arrival and Getting Stuck
A day in the life
Fixed a cabinet hinge, waited out a rainstorm, did some computer work, staying in an overflow parking lot for an old-folks home. Just a day in the life. Continue reading A day in the life
As I’m standing in the rear door of my camper, I can’t help but wonder, “How weird am I?” How many other people can say that on a random Wednesday night they’re in the parking lot of a high school they didn’t know existed a few hours ago with the intention of staying the night? I’m sure this kind of idea pops up for every RVer at some point, or at least the strange ones like me that are somewhat untraditional. Continue reading Normal?
I moved up my schedule and left a day early. That’s one thing I love about RV travel: scheduling. If I want to leave early or stay late, it’s not a big deal. No airline tickets to change, no car rentals, hotel bookings. My planned route is to go through Denver, Salt Lake City, then eventually into Oregon. This evening, I find myself at a JCPenny parking lot in Ponca City (half way between Oklahoma City and Wichita (36.72842,-97.06562). Continue reading Early Departure
And… I’m off!
The house has been cleared out, the trailer packed, camper loaded, and I’m on the road. The deck is on order, the rental management company is engaged, and the weather is slowing me down, as usual. Continue reading And… I’m off!
