As full-time RVers, most of us have heard the parking terms boondocking, moochdocking and lotdocking however, there’s also another called Farmdocking. Farmdocking is when Farmers (or Ranchers) permit an RVer to park on their farm in lieu of helping with chores. Payment is in the form of work.

The whole point of RV boondocking is to camp in quiet, remote places whether it’s on BLM land, on the beach, on a farm or in someone’s driveway. However, that comes with a price.

There’s lots of tears and anger during the whole downsizing our home process. However, we accomplished our goals, stayed married and true to each other. Dreams DO come true! Here’s how we did it!

My Old Kentucky Home is known for several notorious icons; Corvettes and Colonel Sanders, Bluegrass and Bourbon. Kentucky is also recollected for a huge cash crop; tobacco. However, there’s something else inside those black-tarred tobacco barns that’s smokin’ hot!
Strangely, we didn’t really know what to expect once we pulled our fifth wheel out of that small Kentucky town. I guess you could say we had visions of visiting everything under the sun, cleverly writing postcards like Hemingway, going out everyday sampling local cuisines and wine tastings, sightseeing every inch of every State, etc. e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y! I mean, that’s the stereotype or perception of what full-time RVers do, right? Continue reading “Our 10 Challenges of RVing”
