Another month has gone by since I found time to create another post. Between working and traveling back and forth between the campground and Pittsburgh, the time just disappears. We are officially living in the camper and staying at Katie’s in Pittsburgh during the week while I work. The Fifth wheel is starting to feel like home and we are getting it set up the way that we want. I have the kitchen and bathroom cabinets organized and found room for everything that I want to take. I wish it always looked as neat as the picture Right now, it is a bit cluttered as we are still working on the bedroom and organizing the closet. Have stuff scattered in the living and dining area as that work is underway. The picture below is the bedroom before we emptied the closet. It is definitely coming along and we should be ready to leave by October 1.Read More

Read more to see how we are spending our last few months in Pittsburgh.Read More
Spring is here so that means summer is just around the corner. That hit Tim and I pretty hard and I wouldn’t be lying if I said, panic set in. We looked around and realized that we still have a great deal to do in order to be ready to RV full time. So for the past two weeks, we have really focused on downsizing. Each of us approaches the process very differently. Today, I am going to share some tips based on my process.Read More
As we prepare, there are days that we are excited and filled with anticipation for an exciting future. Then reality hits and we are anxious and stressed about the amount of work that still needs to be done. And then there is fear; fear that we haven’t saved enough money to retire early; fear about learning to drive the rig; and fear of the unknown.Read More
Tim and I started planning for our retirement about 5 years ago. We spent quite a bit of time researching the lifestyle, types of RVs and trailers, budgets, and places to visit but very little time on what to do with our stuff. I guess we thought that part would be easy and we would have plenty of time to do it. Now that we are only a few months away from living in our RV, I can honestly say that we still have way too much stuff.Read More
Preparing for full time living has taken us a few years. It started with a dream of a simplified life and that led to some changes over the past few years. Those changes included moving and a few different camper purchases.Read More
Where does a dream start? I find myself reflecting on how we made the decision to become full time RVers. I guess you can blame my parents. As they were raising my siblings and me, they always found ways to travel and explore even if there wasn’t much money.Read More
