Gettin’ High in Colorado

Gettin’ High in Colorado

Recently we spent about five weeks in Colorado. Along with Hawaii, Colorado is one of the most beautiful states in the US that I’ve seen so far. And the craziest part about Colorado? Getting high. And by high I mean elevation. For most of the […]

The Cohabitation Recalibration

The Cohabitation Recalibration

Last week I talked about the process we used to decide which RV was right for us. To help us figure out what we needed I went into superhero Business Analyst mode (think computer and sketchpad, not cape and magic lasso).  I documented our requirements for […]

The Habitation Reconfiguration

The Habitation Reconfiguration

In early 2014 we started talking seriously about selling the house and moving full time into an RV and becoming nomads. We decided that if we were going to do it we’d need a comfortable space we would call home. In the beginning I really […]

Can I pull THAT with THIS?

Can I pull THAT with THIS?

And we have our first guest blogger!  One of the best things about this nomadic lifestyle is the sense of community with other tiny house/RV enthusiasts. Everywhere we go people are trying to help each other with advice or sharing war stories. Our friend Howard […]

The Tiny, The Witch and Her Wardrobe

The Tiny, The Witch and Her Wardrobe

Some say the eyes are the window to the soul. Fashionistas say the closet tells it all. I’m not sure exactly what my closet has to say about me but it’s about to start talking. And it’s probably got a few dirty little secrets.  So […]

Life moves pretty fast. Don’t be so busy you miss it.

Life moves pretty fast. Don’t be so busy you miss it.

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller Lately when I ask people “how are you?” many times the answer is “busy”. Sometimes it’s said with an exasperated look but a […]

Downsizing. Do I really need that?

Downsizing. Do I really need that?

Lots of people have asked me how I managed to get rid of so much stuff.  How did you start?  How did you decide what should stay and what could go?  It didn’t happen overnight.  I started paring down about a year before we sold […]

Mobile Internet Cell Signal Booster Install

We’ve been exploring off-grid internet wireless connectivity options to extend our work and travels beyond the reach of wired internet.  To that end we are trying a weBoost Drive 4G-X OTR cell signal booster. Convenient options for mounting the antenna on the RV were limited. […]
