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!

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...

The RV with Hidden Storage

The RV with Hidden Storage

For the last week our RV had the front curtain out of commission.  The curtains in class A’s have a bad tendency to fall off the hooks that hold them.  You can see the curtain on the drivers side was more off the hooks than on the hooks!  I was just thinking about how bad that must look to all the people cruising around our site in golf carts. It got me...

Staying at our current park has put a damper on our living.  My family is essentially addicted to the internet, so not having unlimited daily internet has been an issue!  Tracy and I have been taking turns driving into town to use the library internet. I feel a little like a hobo being regulated to using government paid for internet, but I’ll take what I can...

Life Gets In The Way of Life

I was recently reminded that any lifestyle can turn mundane.  Living in an RV isn’t special.  Living in an RV is only special when people who don’t live in an RV find out!  As humans we have a large capacity for taking any given outrageous circumstance and turning it normal. If we do something awesome on a regular basis, we forget we are doing something...

Understanding Seasonals

Understanding Seasonals

By on Aug 11, 2014 in RV | 2 comments

Look at the campground reviews on google.  Most campgrounds are sitting right at 2.5-3.5 stars because of Seasonals and campers fighting! Seasonals are the established gangs of any RV park.  They can be young or they might be old.  Some are rich and some are poor.  They cross all races, religions, and cultures. They spend the week mowing their campsite, decorating...

More Thoughts On Driving A Class A RV

By on Aug 8, 2014 in RV | 0 comments

  What is it like to drive an RV?  That is a very popular question.  I see that as a google search that leads people to this blog.  My post on driving a class A RV was one of my more popular posts this year. I have been driving a lot again lately.  We just drove from Duluth, across the top of Wisconsin, then thru Upper Michigan, and all the way down Michigan to...
