RV Air Conditioning on a Small Generator

We all know how miserable it can be during the summer if you are boondocking or dry-camping somewhere and are not able to run the A/C. Or, how about you have a 50amp camper with two air conditioners but are on a 30amp pole and can only run one at a time without tripping the breaker? Well, you can make it happen! Our 5th wheel has a 13,500btu Dometic A/C on the front...

Top 10 RV Essentials

These top 10 RV essentials are what you need to make your RV travel adventures a success. Every item on here we currently use or have used. Many of them have been replacements for when we thought we were getting a “deal” on something less expensive. We launched as a full-time RV living family back in July of 2018 and I work in IT, so there will be another...

Happy Nomadiversary!

July 10th marks one year since we moved into our camper to travel the country. It’s amazing to think how quickly this year has gone by, how much we have seen, and all the memories that we have made. Although at the moment we are parked in our driveway awaiting next Tuesday when we officially close on the house and we become “houseless!”, our plan afterwards is...

Getting Cozy with Cacti

March 22-23, 2019 It’s been an item on my bucket list for as long as I can remember… to see a large cactus, otherwise known as the Saguaro Cactus. As we pulled into Tucson, we saw a few here and there, but it wasn’t until we were driving up the mountain side to the NP West, that we could see the forest of cacti. Best birthday ever! Our lives have obviously changed a...

RV Travel And Crazy Weather

One aspect of this gypsy life that we didn’t consider until it snuck up and bit us, was how crazy the weather can be. We have had bad weather living in North Carolina, but nothing like we have experienced while being on the road, especially in a camper. Toronto – Our First Wind Storm While we were up in Toronto, we experienced 60 mph winds that took down trees...

Happy 2019!

The last part of 2018 flew by but rewarded us with memories that will last a lifetime. It was in April of 2018 that we decided to at least try for full time living and traveling. We weren’t sure if it was even a possibility between work, our home, and school. If we failed, then at least we tried. And look at us now! We have learned a lot about ourselves and have...

Layover in Kingfield

Because Bar Harbor to Montreal was more than a six hour drive, we planned a layover in Kingfield, Maine. As we drove through town and up a horrible road to the campground, we were both intrigued by this place and a little sketched out. Our campground was nestled in the Sugarloaf Mountain area, complete with water front activities and a playground...

For the LOVE of Maine

We never knew that someone could fall in love with a National Park, let alone an entire state. It should be said that we had only been to one National Park before and that would be the Great Smoky Mountains, which we have never truly explored. With our first stop in Old Orchard Beach, we could feel that there was something special here. I mean, lobster alone is...

The Original Willie

I have been trying to find the time to sit down and finish writing the last three incomplete blog posts. It never fails that by the end of the day, once the kids are tucked tightly into bed, that I am too tired to even think, let alone write. Every evening that I trade sleep for work, I rationalize that I will work on it the next day, but with the kid’s lessons...
