Family Visits in an RV: When Home is Wherever We Roam

Family Visits in an RV: When Home is Wherever We Roam
Last month, I wrote about what home now means to us.This month, I'm delving a little further into that concept — and trying desperately hard not to open the Pandora's Box of parental guilt — by telling you a little bit about what "going home" now means to our sons, who are out of the nest and impressively independent, but still just barely into adu...

~ a post in honor of World Wildlife Day, March 3 ~Although we've encountered lots of creatures while RV'ing around the country in our Heartland 5th wheel, the only Bighorn we've seen in the wild is the one we live in. Notoriously shy, those sheep!Most animals were outside the RV, living unperturbed in the environments where they belong — at least u...

Potlucks. I think we're i...

Our Bighorn Gets A New 5th Wheel Pin Box

Our Bighorn Gets A New 5th Wheel Pin Box
When Tim said, "Honey, I'm gonna order a new kingpin," my mind went to drug lords and crime bosses.I should have known he meant something RV-related.

My First Time Towing A Fifth Wheel

My First Time Towing A Fifth Wheel
Who remembers the very first time they drove an RV?Just over two years ago, I survived my first turn in the driver's seat — and to my great relief, so did everybody with me, including my husband, our younger son, and our dog.

From Kitchen Table to Work Station in 90 Degrees

From Kitchen Table to Work Station in 90 Degrees
We're big on computer use here at OwnLessDoMore, and that means we need places to put them. Tim's got a nice big area for all of his equipment, but for our first 15 months of full-time RV living, I've made do with a recliner and side table, with my laptop in my actual lap.
