Late last year we decided to change things up at Epic Mini Life, re-establishing roots in our favorite Dallas, Texas neighborhood: The Cedars!

We’re open to all kind of … Read more Introducing the EpicMiniBNB!

Emptying the liquids … Read more Nature’s Head Composting Toilet Redirect To Black Tank

Our RV wouldn’t be my home if it weren’t decked out with some cool stuff. The first segment covers internet, how we get … Read more What we do for RV Internet, IoT, and Entertainment
These are our RV Living Pits and Peaks. We’ve been on the road for nearly a year! My how time flies. From downsizing to mechanical failures and sock cats, it’s all in here. We were on the ground at Lake Tawakoni Thousand Trails, in Point, Texas. The spot was fantastic, and about 40 feet from … Read more RV Living OUR Pits and Peaks So Far
Today we venture to Disney Springs for lunch, cupcakes, and of course for Minnie’s Rock the Dots celebration. She’s getting her own star on the Hollywood walk of fame! We’ve been in the Orlando area for about a month, and have been at three different RV parks. We leave here (Sherwood Forest RV Resort) on … Read more Day trip to Disney Springs with Epic Mini Life
