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 […]
Control and stuff, or experiences?
Any sense of control you have in your lives is simply an illusion that you’ve allowed to persist. Your life could end in the next few minutes, or you could live to 120 with modern medicine. You can take actions to minimize exposure, but ultimately you’re here for a limited time. Worrying about “stuff” and […]

As it turns out, letting go of the stuff wasn’t the hard part. Well, for the most part. Physically getting rid of it is proving to be far more difficult. UPDATE: We’re changing the plans a bit after realizing that we are in total control of our calendar and location. That sort of autonomy is […]
The unintended ecological impact of RV life: Happy Earth Day 2017
This post started as a quick quip on Facebook to illustrate how our new lifestyle will help lighten our ecological impact by reducing our need for electricity.

Five must have apps for nomadic cross-country living
One thing you can count on in an Epic Mini Life is learning how to navigate the best tools for the task. Today we’ll focus on getting from your current place to the next.
