Boondocking: RVing Across America for $50

We’re 22 days into our full-time travel lifestyle and we already feel like boondocking pros. Although we were stationary in an RV for over a year, it didn’t do much to prepare us for life on the road or life as a minimalist. One of the most shocking things we’ve learned is that you don’t have to pay expensive campground rates. In fact, we’ve only paid a total of $50 to camp and we’ve traveled…

Here’s How to Buy a Quality RV for Under $15,000

A lot of people get defensive about their RV and the company who made it. I think it’s great that people love their home on wheels but the quality standard across the board is sub-par at best.

A Change You Can Live For

Author and photographer: Zach Rubin (Check out his blog, This Persuit of Happiness) Deciding to become a full-time traveler is something that many dream about but few actually do. We often imagine it as something we “wish” we could do, or a “wouldn’t that be nice” scenario. There is little attention given to the “why” we want to do it.
