Boondocking near cities

Why don’t cities make several areas throughout their municipality for boondocking? Instead they actually make it difficult in some cities with restrictions to overnight parking.

Travel to different places

In Canada, most people want to take a vacation south at some point during the winter. The cheapest places to go, from just about anywhere in Canada are Cuba, Mexico, and Dominican Republic. In fact, we have been to all three of these places as warmer destinations to get away from cold Canadian winters.

Our old website versus our new blog

We kept track of our first 18 months on the road at www.mytripjournal.com/kevin_ruth

But that website cost us money...I think it was around $80 per year.

Went for a hike

Well, even in the cold, you still have to live. So, we looked up some hiking trails in the nearby area and we took Whiskey for a nice walk yesterday. We ended up at the Parrot's Bay Conservation area about 18 km's (11 miles) west of here.

24/7 in the motorhome

When we started out on this RV lifestyle, some of the questions people asked us were "what are you going to do all the time?" and "won't you get bored?"

Budget stuff

We don't make very much money, so we have to be cautious about how we spend it. In fact, the poverty industry in Canada would have you believe that we live below the poverty line! Poor us!

We like Mexico

Well you have heard us talk about Mexico and show lots of pictures of Mexico, so I guess you can easily figure out that we like Mexico. If you told us four or five years ago that you could drive a motorhome into and around Mexico we would have thought you were crazy. Well I think now that other people think we are crazy because now we have done it twice and love it!!!!

New batteries for the motorhome?

I sure do like looking at the days counting down. Essentially, we have less than 2 months of winter left!

Edit*** Went for brunch today...

We don't do Christmas gifts with the family anymore, so instead we like to get together for an expensive restaurant meal.

One piece of furniture

When we set out to simplify our lifestyle towards the goal of full time RV'ing in September of 2007, we sold virtually everything in our 4 bedroom house. We now own about ten full rubbermaid storage bins, and one piece of furniture. These items are stored at my sister's house.
