Due to illness I could not produce a post today. I apologize. Things will be back on track on Thursday.
A road trip just isn’t a road trip without road snacks.
Or maybe we’re just fat.
Bits & Bites are by far my favourite. I don’t know why, but I must have them on the road and I just about only eat them when on the road. And then I eat a lot. The perfect mix of different levels of crunchy and salty and that barbeque flavour mixed into the cheese flavour- dangit, I just drooled on my computer.Continue reading “Sunday Review: Road Snacks!”
On the road again! Can’t wait to get on the road again! Is that the full time RVer theme song?
After Manitou it was on to Drumheller and the Royal Tyrell Museum to see the dinosaurs!
First, here’s a pro-tip for parents taking their kid(s) to a museum. FACE PAINT! Lyndsay painted Aurora’s face and got her to pose at the exhibits. Aurora–normally very attention hungry and energetic–thought she was tricking people into thinking she was a part of the exhibit. She had fun, stayed still for lengthy periods of time, and everyone got to actually read the information without child interruptions.Continue reading “Drumheller and the Dinosaurs”
Today’s post comes late in the day and a bit different from previous posts. We were busy all today and yesterday. Even the Sunday Review barely made it in!
My best friend was over so that I could help her change her spark plugs. Easy enough, right? Well, a quick bit of maintenance turned into an entire day ordeal. Because some idjit engineer decided to put an intake manifold over top of the rear spark splugs.
And covered it with wires and tubes.Continue reading “On Vehicle Maintenance”
In addition to this blog, I write short stories and books under the pen name Michael Avraham (based on my Hebrew name).
My first book, Sin’s Shadow, is available in both paperback and digital format on Amazon (and digitally on Kobo).
However, if you sign up for even the lowest tier on my Patreon–only $1 per month–you not only get access to all of my short stories, but all books that I self publish as well! Sin’s Shadow is uploaded and fully available for download in PDF, EPUB and MOBI formats.
Let’s talk about the lights in an RV.
You know how much power those standard incandescent bulbs draw? Ours draw 1.4 Amps.
EACH!Continue reading “Sunday Review: Lights”
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!Continue reading “Garden on the Road”
Our first stop on the adventure to Vancouver Island in 2019 was Little Manitou Lake; AKA the Dead Sea of Canada. Little Manitou Lake has a mineral content about half that of the Dead Sea, about 4-5 times the salinity of the ocean. Like the Dead Sea, you are so buoyant in the mineral rich water that you easily float.Continue reading “The Dead Sea of Canada”
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.
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.Continue reading “Happy Anniversary!”
