Exploring the Sights Around Joshua Tree South

While staying outside of Joshua Tree in the beautiful and scenic Joshua Tree South BLM lands, we took some time to venture out to explore some of the scenery surrounding the southern side of Joshua Tree. On our way out to Joshua Tree, we drove through nearby Box Canyon. It seemed very interesting when we passed through, so we made

A Long Visit to Indio, California

Our fifth ever “backyard,” if you will, was on the BLM lands just south of Joshua Tree National Park. In short, we had such a great time! We arrived in the evening, just as the sun was setting. That first sunset was one of the most beautiful ones that we saw there (there were SOO many amazing sunsets), and this

Hotspot Problems and Two Weeks Stuck in Ridgecrest, CA

Our first few weeks in California were accompanied by some crazy, uncommon weather. Our first boondocking was in Lone Pine, CA, in an area called the Alabama Hills. We expected to stay here for a few weeks, but were forced to move on by impending floods after just five short days. Next, we stayed in an area called Fossil Falls,

A Short Stay in Fossil Falls, California

Our second ever boondocking experience took place in an area called Fossil Falls Dry Lake Bed. Prior to our visit, I had never heard of this locale, and, initially, we did not even plan to visit here. However, after being forced out of the Alabama Hills area by impending floods, we discovered that Fossil Falls was the next closest free

Upon mentioning that Brendan and I had decided to begin a new lifestyle of full-time RVing, several people I know mentioned something along the lines of, “you must really enjoy camping.” Others have also referred to our lifestyle as

Our First RV Christmas in Los Angeles, California

Brendan and I began our journey of fulltime RVing on December 15, 2016. Our “maiden voyage” was essentially a cross-country sprint, as we traveled from our hometown in New Jersey to California in under 10 days. So you could basically say that our trip didn’t formally begin until we arrived in California. However, since the entire purpose of racing to

Across the US in 9 Days

My wife and I began our new lives as full-time US travelers in mid-December 2016 with an immediate cross country sprint to California, since we wanted to begin our travels by spending the winter months in southern California. Ideally, we would have chosen to disembark for our travels in spring, maybe summer, or any time of year with warmer weather.

4 Lessons Learned from Our First Day as Full-time RVers

We have a confession to make. We were a bit dishonest about what our first day on the road looked like. While we had responded to curious friends and family that our first day was going “Great!”, “Incredible!”, “So much fun!”, and “Awesome!”, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Because the truth is that our first day was awful. A combination of several

To summarize this,
