ten things i know for sure after moving 1200 miles from “home” and living in an RV for 8 (going on 9) months (and counting)

  1. Counter space is the greatest thing since sliced bread, especially when slicing bread.  Someday, I’ll get me some.
  2. Sliced bread is entirely overrated and isn’t nearly as great as running water. Not even close.  You try brushing your teeth every day with a bottle of water for the next three months and get back to me.
  3. Distance can and will separate friends… you have to work pretty hard to refuse to let it. Phone calls, texts, emails, snail mail, and/or a wealth of great memories are useful weapons in that ongoing battle.
  4. Attitude is everything.  It really is the only thing in this life that you can control.  All Most  Some of the time.
  5. Insulation is one of those things you don’t know how much you love until it’s gone.
  6. Living in an RV, 15 yards from an active train track is probably the fastest way to discover the absolute truth of #5.
  7. Camping in an RV is to living in an RV as going to a carnival is to being a carnie. And it logically follows to say, being a carnie is the result of exemplary decision making skills, said no one ever, in the history of the entire world.
  8. Very few things are as awesome as an online library.
  9. Laughter makes everything tolerable. Every. Single. Thing.
  10. No one can make me laugh like the husby, therefore, I could not and would not be doing this without him. With him it’s better than tolerable; it’s highly tolerable.

    Thank you for sharing post, And …..all so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Wishing you a beautiful weekend. Much love. 🙂

  2. You are right about the laughter (as well as the rest of your post). Anything can be handled if you can find a reason to laugh. And living with someone who helps you laugh is a great gift.

    1. Indeed, LC! I’m lucky to have the guy.

  3. Reblogged this on Vagabond on the Run and commented:
    The friend part. All my feels on that one.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, the friend part… It’s been hard, but also really fun finding creative ways to keep in touch.

      1. I haven’t started my nomadic life, just moving the 13 hours from “home” and its hard keeping contact as is. Which is why I started a blog 🙂

      2. We’ll good luck and happy travels! The blog is a great way to keep everyone posted. I am always surprised to see long lost pals who pop on and comment every once and a while. Sometimes I feel like a nut for putting myself so “out there” but that’s probably just because I’m a nut.
