RV Camping Gear Guide: Travel trailer essentials

If we've learned anything thru owning a truck camper, 30' travel trailer and now a 17' travel trailer, it's that you're just getting started when you purchase your RV.  No matter what you get, they never come outfitted to serve all your comforts and needs.  Outfitting...

One month in Lake Havasu City AKA Project time!

We had a full plate when we arrived in Lake Havasu City (my hometown) this year.  As any full-time RVer knows, when you have access to a place to do projects and receive packages, you take full advantage.  And that's exactly what we did from the moment we arrived. ...

Hiking The Subway: Zion National Park

During our stay in Hurricane, Utah some friends invited us to hike The Subway in Zion National Park.  We only knew two things about The Subway: 1) it's one of Zion's most popular hikes 2) a permit is required and can be very hard to get.  Our friends said if we wanted...

Our first month without a house (but not on the road just yet)

The last five weeks have been a whirlwind.  At the end of September we packed up all our worldly possessions and said goodbye to our home for the last 7 years.  It felt good, the time was right to move on and do something different but preparing to set off for a life...

Downsizing from a 1600 square foot house to 200 square feet of RV space is no easy feat.  And there's nothing more affective at making you face the reality of what material items in your life are truly important.  This process proved to be so much different than a...

Cold-weather camping in our Four Wheel Camper

We're officially out of our house but not driving off into the sunset...at least not yet!  This month we're finishing up some jobs in Colorado before heading South for the winter.  Before this month even began, I knew it would be an adventure given how volatile the...

Our last day as homeowners!

Today is our last day in our house.  We're one day away from setting off on our new life on the road.  Our head’s our full with our endless to-do lists.  Between keeping on top of our business during it’s busiest season and packing up our house, there’s hardly been a...
