“Buy Used” They Said…

One of the first suggestions you’ll see when beginning your RV search is recommendations to buy used and never buy new! We heard these recommendations too and took them to heart. “All the kinks will be worked out if you buy used” they say. For our RV search, we never really looked for new versus used, we just searched our floorplan and the closest one (still 3 hrs away) happened to be new. The next closest (18 hrs away) was also new. So, as you see, we didn’t have many options with this particular floorplan. So…we bought new.

Kennedy Space Center was a BLAST!

The Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida has been on our must-see list for a while now, and we were finally able to get over to the space coast! If you’re even remotely interested in anything NASA and space related, we highly encourage you to plan a trip over there! We had such a blast and didn’t even have time to see it all. If you plan a trip, I suggest you follow their itinerary because we didn’t arrive until around 11am and didn’t have enough time before closing to see everything. There are also several tours that we would’ve signed up for had we been there a second day! Check back with our blog over the next several weeks for full write ups on this trip!

RV Accidents, Flat Tires, and Chasing Santa

We had some hiccups on our Christmas trip from Florida to Georgia, but we made it safely and that’s all that matters! We hope you enjoy this little teaser video and make sure to comment, like, and subscribe on our YouTube Channel for more of our videos! We hope you had an uneventful and relaxing holiday!

Christmas Decorations: Him vs. Her

Have you ever wondered what Christmas in an RV looks like? Well join us as we find out right along with you! We’re decorating our RV for Christmas for the first time as fulltimers! We started with the measly 2 decorations Alan let me keep, but don’t worry, we ended up with much, much more! Watch the battle of the century, fake versus real. Which will we choose? You’ll have to watch and find out!

 

So tell me….real or fake?? What do you prefer?

Do It Your SHELF!

There are certain modifications that you just cannot live without while living in a tiny space, and this is definitely one of them! If you haven’t seen our VERY IN DEPTH owner’s review, you can check it out here, but we had some issues with our closet situation (shocking, I know!) We have a pantry/closet option that we’re using for my husband’s closet, however it’s so short that even shirts have about a foot of crinkle/fold at the bottom which made all of his shirts look awful. Watch below and find out how we fixed it!

I smell smoke…

It was about midnight and we were sleeping soundly in our RV, when we heard a loud pop that startled us all! I am so thankful that it happened this week as the hubby just returned from a week long business trip. Had it happened when he was gone, I probably would’ve ignored the sound and gone back to bed. We got up out of bed to explore the sound and walked into a room full of electrical smoke. After an hour or more of troubleshooting, we determined it was safest to unplug at the power supply to ensure there was no electricity going to the RV. Needless to say, it was a a long, quiet, hot night for us all as it’s summer still in Florida! Check out our video below, like, subscribe if you haven’t already, and share your comments!

A Day in the ATL

I’m not sure if people still call it “the ATL” anymore or if that’s a thing of the past. Growing up there, we always giggled at that reference as we just called it “Atlanta”…easy enough right? We were going to be in Georgia on a trip and decided to head into Atlanta for a quick day trip. We had only been to Fernbank once for a school dance, and knowing we have a dinosaur-loving little boy, we figured no trip was complete without a visit to Fernbank Museum of Natural History! So we hit the road and headed over! If you’ve never been to Fernbank or are just traveling through with some time to kill, I HIGHLY recommend this Museum for young and old alike!

When Norwex Won’t Fit the Bill

Prior to fulltiming, I spent some money on a few Norwex cloths because they were highly recommended for cleaning stainless, among other things. One of the reasons everybody loves Norwex is because they can be used for so many things!  For whatever reason, when I went to clean the fridge, freezer, microwave, and stove for the first time…NOTHING HAPPENED!! It didn’t do anything! I was sooooo frustrated I had bought these cloths JUST for this reason. Yes, I use them for other things, but this was why I bought them. Discouraged, I turned to my group of mom friends for help. It turned out a few other moms had the same issue and were seeking advice as well. One mom friend had the most unusual idea and I decided to give it a try and it totally worked! Watch this video and let me know what you think!

Have you ever heard of this?? Have you tried it? What did you think?
