Choosing to live a nomadic life as a full-time RVer was a natural choice. I grew up on road trips and repeated the process with my own children. It came a little harder for my grounded husband but he adapted quickly. We took off in a vintage 23′ travel trailer with a dog and cat, not realizing the magnitude of our actions. Now we’ve graduated to a larger rig, learned a LOT . . . and truly love the lifestyle.
That’s not to say it’s all peaches and cream. Living in tiny quarters requires patience, flexibility and good communication.
Hubs is a Point A to Point B driver. I enjoy a slower pace, stopping to snap a few photographs or explore a hidden trail.
He’s a voracious reader. I prefer hiking, writing, crafting . . . something that satisfies my need for perpetual motion. He’s a morning person. I’m a night owl. He drinks tequila. I like wine. He munches on chips and Goldfish. I’m a chocoholic. He has a memory like an elephant but can’t recall what he did that morning. I can tell him what he did that morning but after a week, my mind does a memory dump. But all things considered . . . we cohabitate amazingly well!
As an author, trying to create structured writing time in a fluid lifestyle can be challenging. Some days, it goes exceedingly well. Others . . . meh. It’s always fun when I squeeze in an author appearance or workshop because it keeps me connected to readers and other writers.
I invite you to join me on this never-ending journey across America’s back roads. If you’re an arm chair traveler, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. If you’re a wanderer like me, I hope we meet along the way.
