We interrupt this silent blog with a new post! We’ve been in NY since mid-February, tending to family and business. Our rolling home is in California getting some more repairs and upgrades. Posts to come about Olive the RV. One more week in NY before we head back and are re-united with Olive. Contemplative. Thinking

A New Rolling Home: Road life continues!

Monday, 05 January 2015 by

18 months ago, I bought Ms Piggy pretty much on a whim after being on the road on my bike and Vespa and wanting to continue, but needing a more permanent home base. She was easy to maneuver, fully self-contained (bathroom, kitchen, bed etc) and had a hitch that could handle the weight of the

I’m basically a turtle. I carry my home on my back! Which also means I have no set home, except for the mini-rv we live in. I’m really enjoying living a mobile lifestyle, but there are some aspects that need to be taken care of in order to embark on this “unconventional” lifestyle. (Actually, I

Connecting to the internet when you live in a motorhome is a topic that comes up a lot! Despite traveling all over the country and spending a lot of time exploring new places- and finding new interests in familiar ones, I do indeed work every day. When your work is all based online, connectivity is

Twins Separated at Birth- The Jimmy Van Coach

Wednesday, 06 November 2013 by

A funny thing happened while I was driving through Central Oregon (just before Madras, to be exact)… we spotted our twin! I’ve been told that there were just about 100 of these Jimmy Van Coach made, so running into another one is certainly rare. And it made me very glad we found the one we

Tiny Town

Tiny house, mobile lifestyle, small space living. These have all interested me for quite a while. When I downsized from my house to small apartment, I was inspired by many blogs and articles. Jay Schafer, originally of Tumbleweed and now Four Lights was one of the biggest sources of information. Yet, I had actually yet

Camping Parking Sleeping On The Road

With the arrival of Ms Piggy in our lives, we now carry our home with us. As a fully self-contained unit, we can live off the grid (I like “Off the Cord” a term I first read on Gone With The Wynns). Add in my love of solar power and most of my needs are

Ms Piggy

Sunday, 25 August 2013 by

No insult is meant to this fab new home of mine, but there is hardly a more fitting name than… Ms Piggy! Just about the least aero-dynamic vehicle you could drive, she’s wide, squat, not very tall and has plenty of spunk. Was This Motorhome “Thing” Planned? When I set out on the Vespa trip,

Claustrophobia I’ve been mulling this word, “Claustrophobia,” around in my head for quite a while now. When I made the choice to move into 466 sq ft and felt like I had “more” than when I lived in 2000+. When I stay in either of my family’s homes that are not overly large, yet make

Plans to not Plan

Sunday, 14 July 2013 by

Irksome as it may be to those in my life, I have a penchant for letting things unfold as they may. Imagine going on a 3 week trip with someone who has used a stack of post-it notes to plan the itinerary. Now imagine, I’m the one that hides the post-it notes. There are downsides:
