I think the biggest takeaway I have from our years traveling in the RV is that the world is so much smaller than you think it is. What feels like an entirely different world is usually 1-2 days away. I remember before we left, I would think "I have to go all the way to PITTSBURGH?! (2 hours away)" and now I find myself looking at the Outer Banks (9 hours away) like "I could be flying my kite on the beach before dinner today."
Even longer trips, such as going to Yosemite National Park, is only 3-5 days of travel by car, and I'd even get to make a pit stop to Taos on the way ????.
We lived full-time in an RV for about 1,300 days, and tonight is the last night I will spend in one as a full-timer for the foreseeable future. The blow is softened knowing that I have a king size mattress waiting for me at the house ????.
All joking aside I'm so, SO excited to be moving back to town. I love RV life, but we're pretty tired, and have no wanderlust left in the tank right now.
Welp, it’s happening. After 4 years of full-time travel, we’ve decided it is time to slide back into the rhythms of “normal” life, and signed a lease to move into a house in our hometown of Dover, OH for December 1st(!)
I love the time we spent traveling, and will always have the life-changing experiences that we had on the road with me. But yeah, I'm done. It's been 4 years and I've got no more go in my go yonders.
I'm sure it will come back, and I envision that I'll full time again in the future, but for now, we just want to slow down a bit.
Our winter home has been damaged, and it’s unclear if we’re ever going to live in it again. As a result, we find ourselves making due, but we’re asking for help.
I just did the single longest drive with a camper in-tow we've ever done. We went 680 miles, starting in Hartwell GA, and parking for the day in Lafayette, LA. I do not enjoy staying in Mississippi Alabama, or Georgia based on previous experiences in these places, so we decided to rip off the Band-Aid and skip all of that in our drive to TX this year. 10/10, would drive again.
Earlier this week, Kate and I finally sat down and booked the rest of our year’s RV stays. With that, we officially have our statistics for the year. What’s cool is we were able to compare it to next years planned route, to help figure out if the trip is too much, or not. blog post probably coming soon.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Michelle Frechette on WPCoffeeTalk today. We talked about WordPress, my new site, and the fields API
I was at the Outer Banks last month, and while I was there I got to test out this really cool GoPro kite mount prototype I designed. It worked really well, but I am just now getting around to uploading the video for it. I'll end up doing an actual post of this project in its entirety soon, but for now, here's the video.
SO FREAKING COOL, RIGHT?!
