We just got our RV adventure on the road – finally! We made it all the way from Vancouver, Canada to Fort Stevens State Park in Oregon, a distance of about 500 km (313 miles). We are finally on the road for the RV living adventure we have been planning for over a year. And Fort Stevens State Park is just as wonderful as it sounded, even though we got here late in the year and the rainy season has started. This post includes a video in which we check in about our eventful and challenging journey – our first ever long trip towing our RV!
Our RV living adventure has hit yet another speed bump. We had to cancel our plans to go to Oregon AGAIN as the dealership worked on replacing the entire floor in our new Denali Fifth Wheel. It is starting to feel as if our RV may never be roadworthy. Perhaps we’ll start a blog called “Average Joe Homeless Living” instead! This post plus video explain what caused this further delay, and also showcase the beautiful Vancouver Island, where we just stayed for three weeks. As you can see, it would be a beautiful place to RV – if only we actually had an RV! Unfortunately, we did not, so instead we had a horrible Airbnb experience!

Amazon Prime is a subscription service that entitles you a range of benefits for an annual fee. It also gives you priority on the annual Prime Day Sale.

This post is about the chaotic process of finally starting our RV life. It includes a couple of videos and a lot of photos to show how things sometimes went right, but often went wrong!
People who spend a lot of time in RVs tend to also spend a lot of time thinking about power sources. As soon as you are away from shore power, you suddenly realize that most of our modern lifestyles center around powered appliances. So we are sharing news of a great new product that offers multiple options for charging up almost all of our gadgets. We think the Jackery Explorer 240 Camping Generator will be especially useful when we boondock in our RV. See what you think!
