For the first fifty years of my life I wasn't what you'd call a traveler. Oh, I traveled for business a couple of times a year, but I hated it. It took me away from my cat, my bed, my books, my kitchen... Traveling meant exchanging my comfortable home for a sterile motel room and restaurant food.
Then I discovered RVing, and learned that I could take my home with me—cat, bed, books, kitchen and all. (Well, not too many books—the weight adds up!) For me, that made all the difference...travel became a pleasure instead of an ordeal.
I found that most RVers, and especially fulltimers, are friendly people by nature. Through emails, the Yahoo Lazy Daze group and this website, I now have good friends across the country. Our paths cross and re-cross, and sometimes we travel together for awhile.
And RVing changed my life in another way, by making it possible for me to retire at 55 and live very comfortably on a very small income. I can stay in a park with a view that you couldn't buy for a million dollars for as little as five bucks a night, utilities included.
These pages tell the story of my discoveries, my adventures and mishaps... and because I love to tailor my home to my needs, there are lots of pages devoted to hints and tips on how to improve your RV, making the most of a small space. I hope you'll enjoy dipping into this site, and maybe you'll come away with some ideas you can use in your own home, whether it's an RV or an apartment.
