Never in a million years did we think we’d being doing this thing called boondocking when we bought even our first RV. However, look at us now five years later. But it didn’t come without learning what to have and not have when we’re out there living off the grid in our fifth wheel. So before cold-starting your first boondocking experience, we’ve put together our recommended RV boondocking gear buying guide.
We admit, our very first boondocking debacle absolutely sucked! We were so unprepared and inexperienced that we failed miserably! Since, we’ve learned, practiced, and mastered it (and still learning!). Now, we seriously can’t think of any reason why we need to go to a park or campground especially now that we’re more mobile in our 24′ Winnebago View. Read why we enjoy boondocking in our RV!
Today, as a nomadic RVer, I still look to the sky the same way as I did those three decades prior. My eyes are drawn up to the heavens above.

As a writer, sometimes it’s hard not to feel incredible emotion with each word I put on my computer screen. I will sit back and stare at the screen while sobbing. But, sometimes this kind of emotion brings out some of my best work. This is one of those entries. Who would ever think our happy RV life could bring such detriment to my heart.

So, this blog I dedicate to a special little Corgi dog, Maci, who was larger than life.

Getting to know her a little by asking tax questions which then led to our stories of our RV traveling pets who have special needs. Our stories resonated with each other. I told her about Krissie’s diabetes and she shared her story about their pup, Suji. I felt Suji’s journey needed to be told.
When we shifted our cribs from our former Kentucky home to our home on wheels with our two cats, we knew we’d have a few challenges ahead. But me oh my! Never would we have been prepared for some of the uncertainties we’ve faced on the road. We needed to learn how to make them happy RV cats.

To me, there is nothing is more euphoric than the smell of bacon frying over a campfire on a cool, crisp Autumn morning. And, watching pancakes being poured onto the griddle completes the perfect, picturesque Norman Rockwell camping scene. But before we can get to the bacon-smelling part, we need some supplies, grilling tools, cookware and other essentials to make your campfire the one everyone wants gather around.
