The ’10 Year Rule’ – Do RV Parks Really Turn Older RVs Away?

Since our RV is based on a 55+ year old bus chassis, we’re often asked if we get turned away from RV parks for being too old. There are, unfortunately, some commercial and private RV parks that do have a rule against allowing older rigs. Generally the cut off is 10 years, but sometimes we’ve seen 15.

Nomadic Friendships: When ‘Until Next Time’ Might Be A Long Time

Community on the road is quite a bit different than the community you might experience while living stationary. The people you’re hanging out with can shift as often as you change locations. Just a few of our meet-ups in the last couple of months: Sometimes you connect with fellow nomads as your paths cross for a short bit. And sometimes you might connect with stationary friends (new or old) …

The Spinal Tap That Changed My Life

On April 1st, I went for a short walk to watch some Florida marsh hens rustle through the reeds and cackle at the wind. The date marked one month since I started walking again. I sat there, awkward and sore on a tiny bench facing the water, fighting back tears. Despite a newfound infatuation with the local wildlife, this was not where I planned to be. I was grateful to be walking, but April 1st also marked my 10-year anniversary of leaving New York. It was the date I set off for Chile, leaving behind a comfy…

The Math is Undeniable: Boondocking Is About To Be Busted

Though rushed, our recent RV trip from Florida to Texas was a reminder of just how much we love living on the road, and in Zephyr. Splitting our time between boat and bus has been our plan since the beginning, as I (Chris) explained last year: “Eventually we hope to relocate Zephyr back to her original home turf of…
