Keeping it all together

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

I have avoided bad luck!  My mirror didn’t shatter!  After traveling around on gravel roads and in ruts, it looks like the big cupboard couldn’t handle the stress.  We don’t really know how the cupboard door broke, but the mirror somehow managed not to break. We have another cupboard with a stress crack as well.  Hopefully it can stay together.  I...

How To Be Together

By on Jul 28, 2014 in How I Wrecked My Life, RV | 0 comments

Just because we live in under 400 square feet doesn’t mean we spend the day together.  The boy does his homework, plays in his room, and plays outside.  Tracy cooks, does the household logistics, and works on her advanced math classes.  I do whatever it is I do. We all are doing what we do.  Just in really really tight quarters.  It is entirely possible to not...

We just can’t seem to get enough of Duluth.  We were planning on leaving on August 1st, but I think we will stay over that weekend and leave on the 5th instead.  The fact is there is a lot to see and do, we have an AMAZING view that we never tire of, the weather is perfect, and we have amazing 4g coverage that allows us unlimited streaming and surfing. I am...

Site Maintenance

So the How I Wrecked My Life site is undergoing a major renovation.  I found a cool travel theme I can use, but it is going to take a little bit of work to set things all up.  The front page is going to be a bunch of locations and places that we visited.  So when you click on Duluth, MN – all my postings from our Duluth trip will be listed. It is going to take...

Dinner Guest – Poor Man’s RV Life

By on Jul 23, 2014 in How I Wrecked My Life, RV | 2 comments

Last night we had Curtis over for supper from Poor Man’s RV life.  We love meeting new people when we travel around.  You would think that meeting new people would be easy, but I feel like in the RV world, it is a little more difficult then it should be. People have a tendency to stay inside their RVs.  Why not?  The RV is air-conditioned, has a clean...

Learning To Rest

Learning To Rest

By on Jul 22, 2014 in How I Wrecked My Life | 0 comments

The hardest part of the Fulltime RV life for me is learning to slow down and rest.  Every morning my mind races with tons of projects I could start or continue to work on. I have so many unanswered questions, so many unknowns, yet I am sure of one thing.  I need to slow down and just learn how to breathe.    I need to remember to daily mediate and hear from God.  I...

Fuel Tip – The Gas Cap

Fuel Tip – The Gas Cap

By on Jul 21, 2014 in RV | 0 comments

So one of the more annoying features on my RV is that the gas cap is exposed.  There is no door cover over the cap.  That is a little perplexing because it leaves the problem of no location to put the gas cap when I fill up. The last time I had this problem was when I was in college.  I had a 77 Ford Granada.  After losing a few fuel caps I learned to wedge the cap...

The RV Family Vacation

By on Jul 15, 2014 in RV | 0 comments

The American RV family vacation is unique.  Other countries have various forms of trailers and campers, but only in America can a family affordably climb into a gigantic self contained house and drive around.  America and Canada have the roads, infrastructure and support that no other country can so readily provide. No special licensing, no special permits, and no...

Visiting Duluth in an RV

By on Jul 14, 2014 in RV | 1 comment

We have moved on to Duluth, Minnesota!  We also have hit the RV Parking spot jackpot!  We managed to snag a last minute spot downtown Duluth at a marina / rv park.  Our first night at the marina had this spectacular view out our front window! The spot in the picture is just temporary.  It does not have a sewer, but the view is so awesome we don’t really mind!  We...
