Palettes, lacquer thinner, and RV's. Proper Trifecta!
Was fuckin around on this one this past fall, could have used some more love but got antsy and hung it up at @moceanskate Pumped on its new home, go check it out.. place is loaded with awesome gear.
It's #laundryday for this #largefamily
Eleven people make A LOT of laundry. #rvlife makes laundry easier in some ways and harder in others. We get asked a lot --- "how do you do your laundry?" Same as all y'all. 😂😂 In a washer and dryer. Sometimes at the #rvpark we are staying at, sometimes at a #laundromat
Today we are taking 2 hrs out of our day to wash, dry and fold all our laundry from an entire week!
Yep, you heard that right 2 hours and we are done. Everyone pitches in and we barely even notice the inconvenience of #laundryfor11
Today I am doing more sitting than usual, as my body is still recovering and my helpers are helping even more 🙌🏼 Thankful for them!
NEW BLOG! ✈️ How to Workout While Traveling 🚌 (PLUS! Tips to working out on a budget!)
The holidays are here and if you haven’t already traveled to your holiday destination, you’re likely to this week. In today’s blog post, I outline all the tips and tricks I’ve used to workout while traveling. Some are no-brainers (hotel gym 💁🏼♀️) but others might get you thinking and even working out! 💕 Plus I live on a budget and can’t afford a fancy gym even if I lived stationary so I’ve got lots of tips and tricks to make sure you get your workouts in now, and in the new year! Hope you enjoy! Let me know if I missed any tips you might have! LINK IN MY BIO 😘
When you've purchased the wrong charge controller for a $200 loss 💸and your plans for the day are shot, you've gotta get #rosetinted and sit by the #pool . 🌹🏊 #happyholidaysfromFL 🎄🌴
Five years I’ve been on the road. Five years of explaining to strangers I meet in my travels about what I do. Five years of hearing people say they wish they could do that too. Five years of asking why they don’t.
Some of these people have given travel serious thought and have concrete reasons. They’re focusing on a different goal right now that matters more. They’re caring for a family member who needs extra help, or are raising kids and don’t feel that a nomadic life would suit their family well.
But I also get a plethora of answers that wouldn’t automatically exclude someone from being a full-time RVer, from: “My job isn’t travel friendly” to “I have pets” to “I could never give up all my clothes”.
And I can tell them that I quit my 9-5 job and was able to earn a living work-camping seasonally without any special skills. That I know successful full-timers who’ve brought multiple pets on the road… I even know a couple who travels with a goat and another lady who has a chicken. I can offer advice on how to make downsizing less painful and mixing and matching outfits to make a limited wardrobe more versatile.
But most of these people will never do anything with this knowledge, their reasons are mere excuses for the deeper reason: Because going full-timing isn’t comfortable, and staying where they are is – even if they aren’t enjoying it.
The people who make the leap are those for whom the discomfort of change is outweighed by the discomfort of keeping things the way they are.
Just some food for thought.
Still catching up on travelogue videos on YouTube. This photo is a throwback to summer of 2016, among the redwoods of California and the accompanying video is up today (link in bio).
Real talk 😂 #rvlife and traveling around full time seems like it can be a glamorous lifestyle but really it’s not far off from stick-n-brick house living, just in new places! In fact we probably have just as many home repairs as before when we owned our home. Funny story about this one, thought the washer was acting up but really it was all human error since I forgot to open the gray water tank when we got settled in yesterday. Best tip we ever got when starting the RV adventure was to take it slow. Soon as you start rushing or think you know everything it will humble you 😝 #rv#fulltimerv#fulltimetravel#jacksonville#fl#wegotthis#takeitslow
Why there's a Blue Beacon right in the middle of L.A., I'll never know. But we weren't passing up the opportunity even if it took hours to crawl our way there. This baby was covered in dust from our eclipse camp in Madras, pine needles from Lassen, wildfire ash, bird crap, sand (probably even from Florida), and anyone's guess what else from up and down the east coast and across the country. Yes, it's been that long. And it'll probably be that long again. #wewashthetruckmoreoften#butnotthatmuchmore
