Is The Nomadic Lifestyle What Its Cracked Up To Be?

Working by the beaches, in the jungle, on top of a mountain, in exotic locations. That all sounds amazing. We’ve all seen the cool Instagram pictures of the so-called digital nomads. They seem to live the perfect life. I’ve been a nomad since June of last year. Before that, I had left Canada to travel for 1 year. This is what triggered my interest in officially becoming a nomad. It’s definitely a cool lifestyle. I would not have it any other way right now. But it comes at the cost…

Review: Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station

Our Thoughts: We were sent the Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station about two weeks ago to try and give an honest unbiased review. I must say we were impressed by the quality of the Jackery Explorer 240 and the ease of use. However I found it very hard to justify putting out $250.00 for it. But if I am being I honest I see no use for these type of products. Most RV’s already have these types of plugs installed or could have them installed for way less. And…

You, Me & the RV

Welcome to You, Me & the RV! Our travel journey did not begin with the purchase of our RV. It actually began in 1988 when we both joined the worlds greatest Navy. Phil enlisted from Colorado and Stacy from Georgia. We met in Yokosuka, Japan and married two years later in San Diego. We have both visited many countries around the world separately on the Navy’s dime and together on vacation. But we felt it was time to explore our own country and we thought a RV would take us…

Review: Harbor Freight 100 Watt Solar Kit Review

The Solar Panels That Could When it came time to add solar to my rig I begin researching and pricing out what I felt would be affordable and most of all effective. My solar was going on my truck camper and I really didn’t want the panels to just sit there when not in use and get piled up with snow. I then begin to look at many of the suitcase styles but really didn’t find anything I felt would last and after reading reviews I found many had issues.…
