Getting Settled in Tennessee

After spending 2 weeks hanging out at my parents home in Pennsylvania, we decided it was time to head out.  We had a great time at my parents.  They live in the middle of a 200 acre farmstead.  The worse part about leaving was having to navigate the driveway.  The driveway is almost a 1/2 mile long rutted lane that is covered by low hanging branches.  It took quite...

Catching Up On Kentucky

The mobile palace is parked about 30 yards from my parents dream retirement home in Pennsylvania.  My parents live in the middle of a 220 acre family farm, and the house is built on the foundation of the barn.  Every morning I look out and see rows of crops waiting to be harvested, acres of woods surrounding the property that are turning majestic in color, and I see...

That is us parked at the birth place of Abraham Lincoln. It is our second National Park visit in the fine state of Kentucky. We ran out of time today at our campground in Cave City.  We really liked the area. The rolling hill,  the trees slowly changing color, and the beautiful weather will always be memories we will not soon forget. You will have to forgive me for...

Tracy reported that we needed to get out of the house.  Not just me.  All of us.  It is easy to start feeling insular.  We live, work, dream, sleep, and eat in under 400 square feet.  After a while it is time to put the computers away, pack up the school books, finish the chores, and go see what is around your home! Whenever we stay at a campground, the camp host...

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

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...

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...
