What Living on the Road Has Taught Me About How Men Have it Hard

What Living on the Road Has Taught Me About How Men Have it Hard

I thought it was appropriate to follow up Chris’ last post with this one.  Living on the road, Chris and I spend pretty much all of our time together.  Its one of the main reasons we decided to live this way and give up our jobs.  We only get to live one life, and the person I want to spend my time on earth with more than anyone else is Chris.  This intense intimacy gives us both a look into…

What living on the road has taught me about how women have it hard

What living on the road has taught me about how women have it hard

  The driving thing. Yes I am talking about women vs male drivers in large generalizations! Oh what fun this is! Women are going to have a harder time with this. I am six foot one inches, I can f-ing see around my vehicle, in fact I sit so high I can see over the Prius in front of me with my rig. My wife is only 7 inches shorter, but men step in a car, go seven inches lower…

Spring

Spring

This has been one of the most exciting, diverse and unplanned spring of our lives. Somehow it feels so busy as we have been juggling multiple ideas.   Adopted a dog. Tobe was a 2 year old shepherd mix brought in from a kill shelter and his past was just fending for himself on a native American reservation. Known as a “res dog” he was extremely well behaved, and adorable. He played really well with all the dogs he met,…

The Bare Necessities of Road Life – Top Ten Cupboard Essentials

The Bare Necessities of Road Life – Top Ten Tools

The Bare Necessities of Road Life – Top Ten Tools

Our top ten essentials continued.  Tools!  While much of what you carry is a matter of personal preference and what you will maintain on your own versus paying someone to do, these tools have gotten us out of some MAJOR problems out in the woods by just having them.  Like that time we fixed our truck camper refrigerator and water heater, or the time we fixed the sway bar on the truck, or installed solar in the woods, or built…

The Bare Necessities of Road Life – Top 10 Hygiene Products

Part one of our series; top ten products in daily road life! 1.  Baby Wipes After being on the road for almost a full year, we have tried just about every baby wipe/wet wipe that’s out there.  The clear winner is definitely the Amazon Elements Baby Wipes, Sensitive, Flip-Top Packs.  These wipes are larger than most, more durable, wetter, and don’t have a funky smell.  The lid is durable and keeps the wipes from drying out, even in the desert.  Remember always…

Work, Gatherings, Newness!

Work, Gatherings, Newness!

Since we last wrote we attended the Winter Rubber Tramp Rendezvous in Quartzsite Arizona and my mother and father attended as well. There were about 500 of us living out of our cars, Vans, RV’s and even a few of us that live in a pickup truck and cargo trailer. It was engaging and exciting and also very exhausting. Just as we began to create our own youtube channel my computer broke, it took awhile to get a backup computer…

Reflection

Reflection

Realization or is it relaxation when you realize today is just another work day on the road. Except for a couple of odd jobs here and there I haven’t worked in a full year. What I get in return is temporary; this morning it is sitting by a smoldering campfire watching the Colorado river drift by as the loons and ducks catch fish from the rising waters after last night’s rainfall. I went to bed with coyotes howling, and spoke…

Safe Heating Solution for Living in a Vehicle

Safe Heating Solution for Living in a Vehicle

We went back and forth on heating for the truck.  We were set on a Camco Olympian Wave Catalytic heater, but not sure which one.  Catalytic heaters are great because they do not emit close to as much carbon monoxide like a standard propane heater would (however, they do burn oxygen and produce a small amount of carbon monoxide so we still have a Combination Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Alarm and keep our windows cracked whenever the heater is on).  But yes, they…
