Living In A Tin Can

The most important choice you’ll make as a full-timer is picking a lifestyle-appropriate rig. This isn’t just some fun-bus you’ll take on one weekend trip then leave in the driveway. It’s your HOME, for fuck’s sake! And although a rolling residence (hopefully) won’t set you back as much as a plot of land, you still…

Living In A Tin Can

I was chatting with a couple yesterday — while waiting for the start of a live Hunger–Games-style-kill-or-be-killed theatrical performance, only with video game characters like Mario and Link and Donkey Kong. (It’s fair to say that we gypsies do meet people in the strangest places!) Anyway, I listened with great patience (and a solo cup…

Search the interwebz, you’ll find a pile of articles aiming you toward those beliefs/behaviors that encourage RVing success. And those are awesome. But as an amateur-turned-professional contrarian, I wanted to point out a few of the less-constructive mobile attitudes I’ve run across while traveling the country — the kind that pretty much guarantee right-from-the-start-on-the-road-misery-and-failure. Yes,…

Some folks take their first road trip while still in diapers (if your mother also used the carseat as a sleep aid, welcome to my world where “passenging” equals “snoring”) — others hit the road later in life. But nearly every full-timer I’ve ever coached has had a wanderlusty undercurrent running beneath the surface —…

Travel looks very different for a full-time RVer (like me) than a weekend warrior. Sure, I enjoy the same vacationy-type activities as my sunburnt-tourist compadres — biking, swimming, canoeing, torching hot dogs, throwing up on roller coasters. But at the same time, I’m still managing the daily grind that those escape-artists are trying so desperately…

The other day (while toilet-deodorizer-shopping), I had a weekend-warrior-type ask where my rig was parked. I said I was full-timing at blah-de-blah-RV-resort — he responded, “I’ve never camped there before.” I smiled conspiratorially, gave an Eric-Idle-worthy nudge-nudge-wink-wink, and replied, “Neither have I!” Poor dude raised a confused eyebrow, looked at me quizzically, then pulled out…

Some folks are perfectly content to live in the same nesting-staycationing-never-venturing-more-than-ten-miles-from-home-locale their entire lives. And I wish ’em well — tucked up all warm and snug on the couch mit blankie and cocoa. Just leaves more world for me to see! I inherited busy feet from my father — that man could not sit still…

Random Person: “So where do you live?” Me: “I’m a full-time RVer. I live in an Airstream. You know, one of those little silver travel trailers?” Random Person: “Wait — so you can just pick up and go? Wherever you want? Whenever you want?” Me: “Pretty much. Hawaii’s tough — lotta paddling.” Random Person: “Wow,…
