What to Know: Harvest Hosts

What to Know: Harvest Hosts

By on Sep 18, 2014 in How I Wrecked My Life, RV | 0 comments

The Harvest Host club membership is about the best $40 in RV camping we have purchased. When you start thinking about living on the road you start thinking about how to lower your campaign costs.  You camper has water tanks, onboard power, and sewer.  Harvest Host is a great way to take advantage of your self-contained unit and save some bucks! If you consider that...

Looking Forward In Kentucky

Looking Forward In Kentucky

By on Sep 16, 2014 in RV | 0 comments

Week 1 in Kentucky has come to a close.  3 more weeks and we have to head somewhere else!  My daily focus has changed pretty radically.  I spend most of my day looking for jobs that I think I can be excited about, and I of course want a job that I can bring value too. I have seen a few jobs where the expectations are crazy.  I figure if I can’t succeed at the...

Funny RV Story

So I saw this video and figured I would post it up here.  It is over 3 years old, but I had never watched it before.  I always say that adventure is when something bad happens and you choose to laugh about it later.  I am glad I get to enjoy this adventure instead of living...

We rolled into our campground in Kentucky late Thursday afternoon.  It was HOT!  The temperature was in the 90’s and the humidity was between 90-100% most of the day.  The boy and I had an allergy attack from the temperature difference from Michigan. After the weekend was over the temperature dropped to the mid 70’s and now we don’t even need the...

Traveling South

Traveling South

We have been traveling for the last few days.  Our new home for the next month is now Cave City, Kentucky.  After traveling to Jackson, Michigan I asked Tracy if we could just give up on scheduling ahead.  I want to be able to take our time, stop when we want, and not be rushing around. If it takes us 5 days or 2 days, we use the same amount of gas.  Since we carry...

Some camping in our living – Cooking Outside

Some camping in our living – Cooking Outside

By on Aug 29, 2014 in How I Wrecked My Life, RV | 0 comments

A common perception about full-time RVers is that we are are camping everyday.  We are not camping, we are living. Tracy has often commented how much she misses camping.  Just because we live in campgrounds doesn’t mean we camp! We have a full indoor kitchen, a great bathroom, and we each have our own room. Tracy misses camping like we used to do.  Tents.  Cooking...

Time to go for a Ride!

Time to go for a Ride!

By on Aug 27, 2014 in RV | 0 comments

I finally managed to get the bikes down off the hitch-mounted bike rack.  It only took about 4 months of full-time travel for me to manage to take the bikes down. We are leaving again in just over a week.  It would seem pointless to get the bikes down, but the boy’s bike was in need of repair.  At some point in Minnesota we managed to lose the front tire on his...

Laundry Day

Laundry Day

By on Aug 26, 2014 in RV | 0 comments

Laundry used to be inconvenient.  Now laundry is a costly pain in the butt! When you look at RV park reviews you often see laundry as a review mention.  I used to wonder why RVers cried so much about laundry. Now I understand! For starters you have to drag your laundry around the campsite.  Our current campground has 1500 spots.  You could have to take your laundry...

Eating in Jackson, MI

We are big Chef Anthony Bourdain fans.  Chef Bourdain’s big act is that he travels around and eats the grossest food he can find.  He raves over the fine taste of rocky mountain oyster stew, goat head, and monkey brains.  He actively seeks out what the American consumer has rejected and points out its value to the food chain. One of Chef Bourdain’s...
