I have a few more job interviews over the next few weeks, and I have been keeping busy with some website work.  As I have been searching for work, I have been realizing that I have some huge advantages when I job search. Advantages A wide net When I search for a job, I look for the city of Knoxville and 50 miles around it.  If I apply to a job that is 45 minutes to...

One of the reasons Knoxville, TN was a great choice for us was I wanted to be near mountains.  Knoxville is located between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Smoky Mountains.  How great is that?  Two great areas to explore. We spent a little time already in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  We had to drive through it to get to Knoxville.  The drive from the North to...

RV blogs and travelogues are about alternative housing, exotic locations, self-reliance, and adventure.  We talk about the joys and the thrills.  Where to get great deals on overnight camping, and the best way to maximize your gas budget. I want to talk about another aspect of RVing that is  almost never talk about.  Percieved Poverty. There are RV parks all over...

Post Holiday 2014

So I usually do a lot of posting in December, but this year that didn’t seem to happen.  I still have been lax in picture taking, and a lack of pictures makes it hard to post.  Job searching also hurts my ability to post.  Every week I end up with no job means I have to come back here and post that I do not have a job.  That is a bit depressing. I am actually...

Being stationary doesn’t mean that nothing is happening worth blogging about.  I have wanted to write a bunch of blog posts lately, but I have done a terrible job taking pictures.  Yes, blog posts have been pretty slow because I have not had anything to take pictures of!  I will endeavor to blog more this holiday, but I will just have to reuse pictures.  Or...

People often think that because your home is an RV you are on vacation.  It makes sense that people will come to this conclusion.  Most people in RVs are on vacation.  A common issues is that when people move into their RV they have to train themselves to not be on vacation.  Your natural inclination when you enter an RV is to relax. Unless you live and work...

I am loving the Eastern Tennessee life.  Last week we found out about “The Secret City”.  The secret city is actually Oak Ridge, TN.  When you think about building the big Nuke bomb, you think about the American SouthWest and you think about Manhattan.  Apparently those in the know also think about Oak Ridge, TN. Oak Ridge is where the government took...

So we will be parked in Tennessee for the near future and I needed to get the RV ready to survive the season.  As you can see from the photo above, winter in Tennessee is terrible! Actually winter here is awesome.  It was 42F and I wore shorts and we sat next to a fire.  A few days ago the temperature had a high for 25F.  When the high for the day is under 32F, I...

When you move to a new area, it takes a little while to get plugged in and discover your routine.  Each new location brings new routines.  Some campsites have nice shade and isolation.  This allows you sleep in late and have lazy mornings.  Other sites the sun wakes you up every morning, or birds and other animals do the trick. Sometimes you are in locations that...
