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

Rain, Rain. Go away.

Oh my gosh. I feel like we've had so much more continuous rain this year in the Seattle area, but maybe it's because we're in our RV and not as removed from Nature? What I do know is that I'm really looking forward to seeing sunshine on a regular basis! ("Soon",  whispers my inner voice. … Continue reading Rain, Rain. Go away.

Space and Thunder!

Where Will It All Go? Wow! Honestly, I knew we'd be getting rid of more stuff as we tried to pack what's left of our belongings into the RV and we've definitely done that. What I didn't realize is how much I could actually fit in here! Trust me. I'm being creative, but I'm really … Continue reading Space and Thunder!

Getting Closer!

Just a quick update for everyone. We're still waiting to find out when we'll have the RV ready to go. It's finishing up at the mechanic's shop (see Brian's post) and we hope to know on Monday when they will actually be finished. Then we still need to get it dewinterized. We're hoping to get … Continue reading Getting Closer!

Oh, delays, how I loathe thee

Well.  Damn. We've had the coach up at a truck service center to have the suspension looked at (not one, but TWO RV shops can't handle suspension work).  Currently, after a few days sitting after driving, the coach lists to the passenger side.   Evidently, one of the air bags on that side in the suspension … Continue reading Oh, delays, how I loathe thee
