Welcome to My Life



My name is Jim. I’ve been traveling in Roo, my class A motorhome, and pulling Old Gray, a Jeep Wrangler, for several years. Throughout this time I’ve stopped to work now and then, but no more. I have promised myself that I will travel and write until I can’t do that any longer. Well, I’ve made myself that promise before. Each time it’s lasted 5-7 months. This time I’m shooting for 6 years, or more.

I am now retired. I plan on continuing to travel and share my experiences with anyone who cares to read about them. Until recently I would work five to seven months out of the year, occasionally longer. I’ve found work in Human Resources, Risk Management, retail, and customer service. I’ve been employed as a casino worker, concierge, warehouseman, computer programmer, dispatcher, and census worker. I’ve found work in food services, at a hotel front desk, RV park, a marina, and whatever else that has come along that sounded like fun. It’s not what I do, but where I do it that counts.

I’ve been a full-time RVer since the day I bought a 27 ft pull trailer in April, 2000. Other than a couple of three to four month stints living in a brick and mortar structure, and aIMG_20180504_092358974_Fotor.jpg few weeks taking vacations in places like Hawaii, Sedona, Lake Tahoe, Texas Gulf Coast, etc., I’ve been residing continuously in a recreational vehicle. It’s my home on wheels. Wherever I park, it’s where I am—for a day, a week, and sometimes several months. It feels so liberating knowing that I can move anytime my heart desires.

I’m going to share with you reviews of some of the products and devices I use that make my life easier on the road. I’ll be posting videos and photos I take during my travels. In short, I’m going to share what it’s like to be a modern day nomad in a society that does not understand the benefits of this lifestyle. It is not for everyone, but those of us that embrace it wouldn’t trade it for anything.
