We officially began living in our RV on December 14, 2018. It's our 6 month Winnebago anniversary today! That's right, any excuse for a cupcake!

I just hadn't felt up to blogging quite yet … Continue reading RV Living Quarterly Report (June 2019) – Six Month Stats, Q&A, and Traveling Insights

Why is it so difficult for me to answer? (long sigh) The short answer is, no. I sure wish we did though! We have … Continue reading What’s the Plan?
I'm going to qualify this post with the fact that we didn't lose "everything". We have friends who literally lost Everything.

It's been 5 months since we lost our home in Paradise, California to the Camp Fire. I said I'd write a blog about our RV adventure in the wake of the catastrophe.
