Favorite Places: Parsons, West Virginia At a mere 1.2 square miles and 1500 residents, chances are pretty good that you haven’t heard of Parsons, West Virginia! We stumbled upon this quaint little town in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains by chance late last August, while seeking out a campground along our typical “avoid-major-highways-if-at-all-possible” route […]

Our first four months of full-time RVing have posed some interesting connectivity issues for us, so we decided that we might be experienced enough now to finally start writing about how we stay online on the road. Traveling full-time has enabled us to simplify and streamline our lives in countless ways. Staying connected to reliable internet […]

With some time under our belts now living on the road, we felt it was time to compile a list of some of the biggest adjustments we’ve made and the things about living on the road that continue to be weird to us: 1.) Waking up each day and needing a moment (or several!) to […]

Just under two weeks ago, we packed almost everything we owned into a pickup truck and 26’ Airstream travel trailer, handed our house keys over to our great new renters, and took off on the adventure of a lifetime. I thought it might be fun to do a blog every so often that reflects back […]

This past weekend we sold most of our stuff at a yard sale, then donated the leftovers to charity. Yes, pretty close to everything: like 80% of what we owned! I’m now sitting on our single remaining couch (to be given to my brother in the next couple weeks) watching tv on our iMac computer […]

Fight Club said it best: “Reject the basic assumptions of civilization, especially the importance of material possessions.” At some point around the middle of last year, it occurred to us that the need to pay for our house and all the stuff in it was the only thing keeping us from doing what we truly […]

Our first destination in our Airstream was a favorite place of ours that we visit annually, Holiday World amusement park in Santa Claus, Indiana. Next door to this wonderful, family-oriented theme park was our campground of choice, Lake Rudolph Campground and RV Resort. We were fortunate enough to get a spot near the little lake, […]

Well, we finally did it: a day later than we hoped to be rolling due to an unforeseen brake issue caused by a bad truck-to-trailer cord, but we are on the road! The feeling of seeing the trailer lurch forward and begin rolling out of our yard was akin to watching a child take its […]

We knew we wouldn’t have time to finish up the water and propane systems before leaving for our first journey on May 30, so we got down to work on the other essentials, now that wheels were ready to go. First up was our lower bedroom walls, so we could build a bed. The old […]

We drove to North Carolina to pick up a rather essential component of our Airstream: the wheels! A fellow AirForums member was selling the rims and tires off his 2012 Airstream after upgrading to a larger size. We were geographically close enough that it worked out for us to go pick them up directly rather […]
