Garden on the Road

A major misconception about life on the road is that you lose out on all of the comforts of a sticks and bricks, like a yard or a garden. Well, we’ve already proven that you get a yard; now we’re going to prove that you can have a garden.

I can hear your thoughts now. “What!? No drama today!?” Quit you’re whining and enjoy the good things instead of our suffering!

Our first year’s container garden.

Sunday Review: Harvest Hosts

The world is opening up again, and many of us full timers are going to be looking for places to go and things to see. Plus, we all struggle to find places to stay when on the road.

Single nights in a campground are costlier than they should be and finding a good place to boondock can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

My family has tried several free or near to free camping options while traveling longer distances. Our favourite by far is Harvest Hosts. It is inexpensive to sign up for; the classic membership is only $79USD/year and the plus membership is only $119USD/year and both provide unlimited free 1 to 2 day overnight stays.

Happy Anniversary!

Today is the one year anniversary of picking up our RV. There was some time spent doing renovations before moving in, but it was ours. We’d bought a home.

Most people would never consider our RV a house; not even a tiny house. But for us, that’s absolutely what it is. We’ve modified it and maintained it, and it is ours.

The Adventure Begins

September 1st, 2019. The great journey was to begin.

June was spent getting used to the trailer, July doing some travelling around Manitoba and volunteering, and August was our time to say goodbye. September was the beginning of the adventure west, with two friends tagging along for the ride.

It was raining that morning. Of course, right? Start a trip hauling a trailer across the country by hooking up in the rain. Not so bad, but definitely a little annoying. Annoyances built into problems.

Sunday Review: No Cheating On Your Wheel Bearings! – Guest Post by Dale Constantine

So, you’ve decided to service your RV wheel bearings yourself. Good for you, but no cheating! What do I mean?

To properly service wheel bearings, they must be removed from the hub. I know what you’re thinking. “My RV has a grease nipple right on the outside under the centre hub cap. All I do is simply take my rease gun and pump it several times every year!” Yeah, okay. That grease nipple and the internal grease porting was designed so that the owner would not have to remove the wheels and hubs and disassemble and get dirty and all that stuff… but there is a price to pay.

Vacuum Troubles

If you already live this life, you understand just how much gets tracked into your RV. If you don’t, this is very important to understand. You will be going in and out of your RV many times per day, far more often than you go in and out of a normal house. You will track an absurd amount of dust and dirt inside and a proper vacuum is an absolute necessity.

We have gone through four vacuums since moving into our RV. That’s four vacuums in less than a year.

There is a saying that I need to remind myself of more often. “I’m too poor to be cheap.”

Sunday Review: RV Wheel Bearings Explained – Guest Post by Dale Constantine

I previously made a post on a Sunday Review about a quick and dirty path to greasing your wheel bearings. As it turns out, I was grossly misinformed! While the “cheat” works if you are in a pinch (and got us across mountains and a couple thousand kilometres when we had no other choice), it is definitely not recommended and is very risky. I will be doing a complete service of my bearings this year before moving to my next destination. Proper wheel bearing service is a necessity for travel trailers and 5th wheels.

So here to correct me is licensed automotive technician Dale Constantine, whom you can find on LinkedIn. This post is an explanation of the wheel bearings. Next Sunday’s post will explain why you should never cheat!
