I love this little camper so much. It’s not the most comfortable setup long term, but it’s small, easy to haul, and ready for adventure. a real “camper’s camper”, if you will.

Seems silly to have a camper that’s basically dedicated to camping when you literally live in campers full time, but it’s an optimization which I do not regret.

It’s raining, and the power just went out. One convenience about living in a camper is that we basically go into boondocking mode. The fridge kicks into propane, lights run on battery, and our Jackeries keep everything else running in the meantime.

Starlink is impressive. I’m about 250 feet from my camper, with the wifi inside the camper, and I am still getting a fairly strong wifi signal.

My last router didn’t even emit the signal outside of the camper. Did not expect this at all.

It’s windy as hell here. It’s also blowing broadside, which is basically worst-case scenario for a camper. I see other camper’s rockin’ like crazy, but I have all of my stabilizer jacks under my slide, and my tripod all installed. This thing is SOLID. Wish I did this a lot sooner.

Apparently I’m not the only full-timer taking this route to Texas this year. A few other people who literally parked at the same place I was at this morning pulled in shorty after us here, as well 😂. We’re like geese, but slightly nicer.

As I was driving today, our destination sounded like a place that was vaguely familiar, but I couldn’t place it.

Turns out, it is the hometown of a former colleague and friend of mine from my days at Sandhills, so we got to hang out today. My dead battery meant that I got here 4 hours earlier. That meant I had time to hang out with them today. Serendipity wins!

What a wild rollercoaster that trip was! The map took us to the wrong location, we couldn’t get a hold of the winery we intended to visit, and on a whim said “screw it” and cheesed it to a KOA just up the road from the winery. I have full hook-ups, am down $54 dollars, and have no regrets.
