So our original plan was to stay in the Florida Keys until October 1st. After hosting at Curry Hammock State Park, we were going to head about 30 miles west to Bahia Honda State Park to volunteer there for three months. Unfortunately, work commitments had us rethinking our ability to put in the volunteer hours … Continue reading Slight Change of Plans
On June 1st 2018, we celebrated our one year “Nomadiversary”. We have been living full-time in our camper for a year now and it surprisingly just feels normal, even in just those first few weeks in. The camper has always felt like home. Don’t get me wrong, there have been many things we have … Continue reading A Year In, what we’ve learned and what we miss.
This is going to be a mini-quickie post. I'm typing and preparing the whole thing on my phone (a first for me), so please excuse any typos. Each park, whether it's privately ran, state or national park have different ways they utilize host/volunteers. These are the questions we think are pretty important to know before … Continue reading Top 5 Things to consider before accepting a camp host position
Sorry for the delay....we've been working extra hard around the campground because all the hosts that were suppose to show up April 1st, just didn't (insert side eye) so we've been pulling double time, plus this also happens to be one of the 40 hour work weeks I mention below.

The generator we used for two weeks solid after the fire incident failed to crank, go figure. But we are certainly MUCH MUCH … Continue reading Irma’s Aftermath in Flo-who,Flo-what……Flovilla, Georgia
We are now three months in as campground hosts, and as this long holiday weekend comes to a close (Happy Labor Day), I wanted to take the opportunity to offer up campground etiquette 101, straight from a campground host. We’ve experienced more than our share of wonderful and amazing campers. More than not, everyone is … Continue reading Camping 101 (campground etiquette from the perspective of the person who cleans up after you)
I apologize for our (really my) MIA Status. There has been a lot going on for the Dynamic Duo, some bad and some good, and unfortunately the blog took the hit. So here I am trying to play catch up. Let’s do a run down on what’s been going on for the last few weeks. … Continue reading When it all (almost) goes up in flames
One, you just can’t have a ton of “stuff” when living the full-time RV lifestyle, it is just a fact, sorry. Everything has to have its purpose and be used frequently to make the cut. We aren’t super sentimental people, so that definitely helped us to narrow the list, plus we didn’t really have all … Continue reading But where do you put your stuff?
