Project: Bathroom backsplash

One aspect to RV design that I loathe, is the seemingly dedicated style of making everything "match."  Wood color, accent colors...all seem to go into a monotone color palette.  I'm not a fan of that approach and relying on wallpaper borders or accent metal (gold and bronze, overused!) is quite bad, in my humble opinion.  … Continue reading Project: Bathroom backsplash

A note from a man called “Eeyore”

Well, it seems my ever present alter ego is present in most of my posts, so much so that people are expressing concern about me.  More likely, you are worried about Julie, I mean, she lives with me, in a small space, 24/7, rain or shine.  Knowing me as well as I do, I'm sure … Continue reading A note from a man called “Eeyore”

Project: Electronics Cabinet Update

So, in the RV, there are a couple of cabinets that contain, originally, the switching box for TV, satellite, music, etc., that now contains our electronics package.  The cabinet now contains our PepLink router, HD Homerun and WeBoost.  The PepLink allows me to have two SIM cards for different cellular carriers (AT&T and Verizon) and … Continue reading Project: Electronics Cabinet Update

The Fun of Having a Motorized Coach

We are coming up on a year since we bought the coach and we're now 6 weeks into our new lifestyle. Overall, we're pretty happy with it.  We can work remotely with consistent Internet connection (spendier than your average home Internet package, but very flexible).  We each have noise cancelling headphones for when it is … Continue reading The Fun of Having a Motorized Coach

Downsizing to Liberation

Liberation is hard.  Just ask the founders about rejecting a monarchy for a new way.  Liberation is not an easy set of choices.  You don't (or at least, very rarely) get to be liberated without effort, focus, will, and determination.  Oh, and don't forget tenacity, fearlessness or desire. As we embarked on readying ourselves for this … Continue reading Downsizing to Liberation

The Done, the Not Done and the Unexpected, Part 3

RV living as a full time endeavor can seem easy from the outside.  Or, as we did our many months of research, a lot of "wow, I wouldn't have thought of that." Many times, that phrase was spoken out loud by both of us. Probably the most stressful aspect of this transition and journey has … Continue reading The Done, the Not Done and the Unexpected, Part 3

The Done, the Not Done and the Unexpected, Part 2

The accomplishments of the past month or so as described in Part 1 have been great.  But, there is still much to do.  Which brings us to Part 2, what is NOT done. The Not Done Oh, list of not doneness, let me count the ways. We still have MUCH to do in the RV … Continue reading The Done, the Not Done and the Unexpected, Part 2

The Done, the Not Done and the Unexpected, Part 1

We're three weeks into our new odyssey and we are still adjusting.  Each week seems easier, until something new pops up or we have an unexpected happenstance.  These things aren't terribly different when one buys a new house, as many of the same issues crop up, just in a different and unusual package.  All homeowners … Continue reading The Done, the Not Done and the Unexpected, Part 1
