Living In A Tin Can

When other RVers see my teeny little Airstream, they say, “Oh, how nice, how cute, how wonderful — for now.” They view my tin can as nothing more than a rolling “starter” home. They assume that if I am going to continue on for years as a full-time RVer, I will eventually want to upgrade…

I was talking with a couple yesterday as they bemoaned all the many seemingly-insurmountable obstacles standing in the way of their becoming full-time RVers. Money. Work. Family. Timing. But I could tell there was something else going on, lurking right beneath the surface. After a little coaching, it finally came out that they weren’t quite…

Some folks are perfectly content living in the same town their entire lives, staycationing at home, never traveling more than 10 miles from their front doorstep. I wish ’em well, I really do — all tucked up warm and snug under an electric blanket. ‘Cuz that just leaves more world for me to see! I…

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…

Random Person: “So where do you live?” Me: “I’m a full-time RVer. I live in an Airstream.” Random Person: “You don’t just stay in one place? You go wherever you want? Whenever you want?” Me: “Yep.” Random Person: “Wow, that must be a great life!” Me: “Yes. Yes it is. But not for the reasons…

When I was little, my favorite thing in the world (well, one of my 10,000 “favorites”) was to flip through my father’s road atlases and AAA books, searching out all the sites I wanted to see “some day.” Running my finger along the bright blue highway lines — marveling that towns like Boogertown, NC and…

Roots sinking deep, branches rising high. Grounded, yet striving, A vertical yin-yang. Birthed by Gaia, Ouranos. Helius and mighty Zeus, gods of divine nuture. Rocked to sleep by Aurae’s gentle breath, in Selene’s cradling arms. The earth children sleep contentedly, Restful guardians of the soul. Eyes closed but keeping watch over their siblings, Apple babies,…
