From Meh to Freakin’ Awesome

Check out our full photo gallery of the build process! We decided on a Tiffin Motorcoach for many reasons: the interior layout, the incredible customer service, reliability, and many standard features like full-body paint, led lights, 10-gallon hot water heater, and Corian counters. One of the bonuses of buying a Tiffin is that you can watch...

Moving out

This week we’re another step closer to living the full-time RV lifestyle: our beautiful home of 14 years is officially on the market. Talk about another emotional moment! Our house was built for us in 1999-2000 and we moved in 7 months after our wedding. Knowing that we’ll never live there again has us thinking about...

Our Toad Can See!

Last year, the world was wowed by the many different views of the Chelyabinsk meteor streaking through the sky and exploding over Russia. The videos were possible because many drivers in Russia have dashboard video cameras (the reason for this is unfortunately to protect drivers from corruption and scams). Since we will be doing a lot more...

Busch Gardens, Tampa

While we were in Tampa at the RV SuperShow, we also took a day to visit Busch Gardens right down the road. Since we both love roller coasters, one of our RVing goals is to visit as many amusement parks as possible and ride coasters across the country! Our Busch Gardens day ended up being...

Tampa RV Super Show 2014

Every year there is a large RV show in Tampa FL, one of the largest shows in the US, similar in size to the yearly Hershey RV show. Even though we had already decided on the RV we wanted, and the dealership we wanted to buy from, we wanted to attend the show for a...

Some of the factors we included in our search were: Approved for flat towing Large, flat cargo area that comfortably fits two large dogs Comfortable enough for many long sightseeing trips Good fuel economy New vs. used...

We’ve Chosen A Motorhome!

Choosing a motorhome turned out to be an exhausting but very educational experience. Unlike car shopping, we found reliable information hard to come by while RV shopping. There are many makes, models, and options, and we spent about three months researching just to understand how to shop for an RV. After visiting dealers and the...

Dinghy? Toad? Even Our Vocabulary is Rebooted

Once we figured out that we’d be driving a big Class A motorhome around the country, we learned that we would need to tow a car behind us. This wasn’t something we had originally considered. In our fantasy world, we pictured a small RV that we’d drive around everywhere we needed to get to, park...

Researching RVs

above: class C motorhome When we started shopping for RVs, we knew there would be a lot to learn. We weren’t prepared for quite how much though! It really makes me wonder how we made smart decisions before we had all the information in the world at our fingertips through the Internet. We quickly learned...

We’re doing what??

It’s true, we’ve decided it’s time to try something new and different. Not just a little different but something completely out of our comfort zone. We’re selling our nice comfortable home, purging almost all our stuff, buying an RV and spending time roaming around this amazing country visiting places we’ve never seen, wanted to see...
