RV Tips and Tidbits We’ve Learned through MUCH Trial and Error

There are plenty of people who decide they want to become full-time RVers and then spend a year researching and preparing to make sure they are well-equipped to handle life on the road.  Not Reid and me.

[originally posted to a blog I was trying out when I was going back and forth about if I wanted to do wordpress or tumblr and what I wanted my name to be, from May 30th, 2018]

I wanted to take a quick break from the absolutely insanely crazy week I’ve been having to make the time to start my blog, and document a sweet moment I experienced last night.…
