Living In A Tin Can

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….. Oh man, I’m so sorry about that. I dozed off! Late night. Not my fault. So where were we? Let’s see. Why I’m a full-timer. No I don’t camp. Getting rid of the house. Taking your work on the road. Nope — something else. What was it? Right! You were shopping for an RV!…

Yes, this is literally a picture of a toilet located inside a shower stall . Call me crazy, but I don’t want a leaky faucet dripping on my head while I pee — nor do I relish potty-squatting while I shave my legs. I include this visual aid as a PSA, a reminder that “space-saving”…

We recently launched into a protracted multi-part RV-buying discussion that will end up covering many weeks and numerous topics — but today, our gaze is focused entirely on la ligne du bas. (That’s French for “the bottom line.” Oui, it is.) Nearly every sentient being I meet asks (and I’m talking within the first 15…

The most important choice you’ll make as a full-timer is picking a rig. This isn’t just some fun-bus you’ll take on one weekend trip, then leave in your driveway — it’s your HOME, for fuck’s sake! Although it (hopefully) won’t set you back as much as a plot of land, you still need to treat…

You know the time is right for something to happen when opportunities just seem to fall out of the sky, landing unexpectedly in your lap — and this was sure-as-hell the case as I made my decision to full-time. (In fact, I ended up with some pretty grody-looking bruises — thanks to all those big-ass…

Homeownership’s supposed to be a cornerstone of the American dream, innit? (I mean the damn thing’s right up there with ladder-climbing, childbirth, and religious freedom. That’s what this country’s all about — family, faith, fringe-benefits, and freeholdings!) I’d long ago eschewed the first three, but somehow or other got sweet-talked into the latter — ironically,…

Last time, we talked about what travel looks like for amateur RVers — now let’s examine wanderlusting as experienced by full-time pros. (Like me!) Sure, I enjoy the same vacationy-type activities as my sunburnt-tourist compadres — biking, swimming, canoeing, cooking out, throwing up on roller coasters. But at the same time, I’m still managing the…

The other day while out shopping for deodorizer, I had a weekend warrior ask where I was staying. I told him I was full-time, living at such-and-such RV park for the next few months. He responded, “Oh, I’ve never camped there before.” I smiled conspiratorially, gave him a nudge-nudge-wink-wink, and replied, “Neither have I!” This…

Of course housecleaning is no one’s idea of a fun time. (Frankly, very little about home maintenance seems fun to me — especially gardening. I do not understand gardening. Sitting in the hot sun, digging holes, pulling weeds, sweaty, dirty, killing your back and knees — where’s the attraction in that?? Sorry — I digress!)…

How much do you hate housecleaning? To be fair, it’s no sane person’s idea of a fun time. (Frankly, very little about home maintenance seems fun to me — especially gardening. I do not understand gardening. Sitting in the hot sun, digging holes, pulling weeds, sweaty, dirty, killing your back and knees — where’s the…
