• 3 irrational fears about full-time RV life

    We are T-minus 195 days until we move into our travel trailer and start our adventures as #FullTimeRVers. There is a ton to plan and do still and we are super, super excited. Underneath the excitement, there is a tiny amount of fear. These are the three semi-irrational things that I am scared of.  1. Laundry  I have never been to a laundry mat. It kind of freaks me out to have all my laundry, towels, and bedding tumbling through a washing machine that other people have used. What if they have used bleach in another load and wreck my stuff? What if they are just gross? I know that…

  • The excitement to downsize is real

    One of the biggest things with moving into an RV is downsizing. There is virtually no way to comfortably fit all of your household possessions into a trailer (unless you are a hoarder). From what I have seen, there is a lot of anxiety associated with this process which is understandable. For me, I am really, really looking forward to it! Purging is one of my favorite activities. On a regular basis, I go through our condo and huck and chuck stuff. I love spending a weekend ripping apart closets and drawers and getting rid of all the things we no longer need or use. Mostly, these purges happen while…

  • Weekend warriors in Canmore and practicing the blogging lifestyle

    We spent the weekend in Canmore, Alberta with three objectives in mind: 1.       Celebrate six months of marriage 2.       Spend time together after Kendall had been gone for six weeks 3.       Live like “bloggers” and how we plan to live come June 2020 The first two are easy to achieve. Really, we just wanted to hang out together in the same place we got married and enjoy each other’s company. The third was a more interesting task. We wanted to live in a similar way to what we are planning to do when we pick up and leave next year. Because we will still technically be working, whether remotely, on…

  • What the heck is the plan?

    Since announcing we were planning to move to Mexico, we have received several panicked phone calls. From the sounds of them, you would think we were leaving in the dead of night tomorrow. Word to the wise: tell your family before you annouce your plans to the internet. Apparently, we forgot that step.  So what is the plan? Well friends, the good news (for you) is that we aren’t leaving until next year. In fact, we aren’t leaving for another seven months. That is one more Halloween, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Canada day. The bad news (for us), is that it is one more blustery winter in…

  • Why we are leaving it all.

    The decision to pick up and live a nomad or remote lifestyle is definitely shocking to some. For us, it is a means to the end where we live in freedom and can experience our best lives.  For the last five or so years, we have been talking about living in Mexico or somewhere else warm. In 2014, we went to San Jose del Cabo for the first time. In 2016, we went again and stayed right in town at a new resort. Being in town allowed us to explore the town, travel to local beaches, shop in the stores, and experience a more authentic Mexican living experience. Obviously staying…
