Dreaming vs Reality

I remember 6 months ago when I just knew that when I hit that open road, I would feel the freedom and would be the happiest person alive. That’s how it is in the movies right? At 3 weeks until we leave I’m nervous, wondering if I’m making the right decision, scared of the unknown. These are the real feelings that come with the introduction to the nomadic life style. We never hear about the process of getting to that point, but more of either this is roses and rainbows, or its the worst decision made. If one wants change, they have to step out of the comfort zone to get it. I do believe that this is the best decision I’ve made for myself and family, and know that we will have obstacles along the way. Fearing the unknown is less scary to us then living a life doing the same thing everyday until the end.

We would love to hear from the fulltimers on their experiences of leaving the sticks and bricks to live in an RV.

 

Simple Devices To Have On Hand Boondocking

As we prepare for our journey, lots of research is still being conducted for items to have for boondocking. One of the items that I have found very beneficial is a Wifi ranger. What this does is detect free Wifi for as far away as your device will handle. Like everything out there, the more you pay, the farther you get. Wifi rangers will range from $25.00-$800.00. Distance may be about 50 feet up to 7 miles for a signal.

One thing we are trying to do, is take away as many monthly bills as possible out of the picture. Another item we found that put a smile on our faces was the hdtv antenna the is light weight, easy to install, works great and is very low in price. https://www.amazon.com/1byone-Amplified-Detachable-Performance-Cable-Black/dp/B00IF70T4M this item works on the same line as a Wifi ranger but has a max distance of 50 miles and cost about $25.00.
