Spring has sprung in Florida! Well, sort of. Florida is where summer happens twice a year with each season lasting 6 months. There may not be snow or colorful autumn foliage but there are notable differences between the seasons - mostly the degree of heat and humidity. In this post, I’ll share some tidbits about… Continue reading Hot-n-Humid South Florida Weather – Van Life

The End Of Trailer Life – Another Newish Beginning

Just a short post about a long story. These Past 8 or 9 Months… I've learned that I love the trailer but I'm not fond of towing it all around the country. I enjoy the extra creature comforts and added square footage but the trailer comes with more expenses, less simplicity and less flexibly.

A Not So Pleasant Night – Climate Control Escapades

On March 16, I took Bella to the shop in Kingsland GA to get 2 recalls and a minor taillight issue taken care of. The shop told me it would only take "a couple of hours".

5 Perceptions About Van Life That Drive Me Crazy

Winter decided to show up way too early and it's rendered the outside air too cold to be enjoyable. So... I sit here (indoors) reminiscing about my first couple years on the road (before becoming Dad's Caregiver).

I Became A Full-Time Van Life Nomad 4 Years Ago

When I took on the role of Caregiver (back in March 2018) I knew my temporary hiatus from the road could be lengthy and I would need to find ways to get through it. What I didn't realize was how deep my nomadic desires ran. I've been missing the road a lot lately and doing… Continue reading I Became A Full-Time Van Life Nomad 4 Years Ago
