3 years old and a third anniversary

This past Sunday found Hovis celebrating her 3rd birthday! Not only that but it was our 3rd anniversary as “official” full-timers in this rig. Truly hard to believe that we have been living in this rig for 3 years. Wow! Any regrets? Nope! We still LOVE this lifestyle and our rig. Once in a while some kind natured person will suggest the “perfect” house for our family. I just smile... read more

More cleaning and thieves of the four legged kind!

There is no such thing as a thin squirrel around here! NOR are they shy!

MT – Day 26 – Fixing the bathroom floor!

There is a heating vent in line with the toilet and it is where everyone stands which would not be an issue if the... read more

MT – Day 12 and 13 – Cleaning Rig Days

As you can imagine the fifth wheel and truck were FILTHY after that long trek across country. (Picture shows camper before it was clean!) With temps in the 70s it was the perfect weather to clean both rigs. Normally we are done in a day but alas, Richard discovered a lot of tar splashes up one side of the camper. What a pain to get off! It took ages so it was not until Saturday evening that we actually... read more
