The Reward is in the Risk

By Nathan | March 20, 2017

My finger was hovering over the enter key as I thought through last second regrets for making this decision. Marissa was at work (We just pulled back into Tennessee. Our videos are about a week behind) and she was on the phone reluctantly giving me one last go-ahead for the launch. What were we launching?…

How to Live in a Small Space (And Not Go CRAZY)

By Marissa | March 13, 2017

I would go CRAZY living in an RV! This is actually a very common response when people find out we are living in small space. I am not going to say this was not a concern of mine as well. Time has shown after 3 downsizes and now currently living in a 31 foot Airstream,…

Why We RV

By Marissa | January 30, 2017

When we decided to make the transition to full time RV living, we were often asked the question (with a strange look) “Why?” People where unsure why you would want to sell your house and stuff to live in a small space, a camper for that matter. I remember I dreaded this question, because if…

Our Third Downsize. Can I Do This?

By Marissa | January 16, 2017

After a week of grueling downsizing and moving, we are finally on the home stretch! How does it feel to take a van load off from your already downsized motorhome life you may ask? AMAZING! We feel lighter than ever and a weight has been lifted off our shoulders. Yes we did have to get…

Saying Goodbye to 2016 and Hello to the New Year!

By Marissa | January 2, 2017

The person who started the phrase “Times flies when you’re having fun” must have been a RVer. That statement has never been so true in our lives. 2016 was our first FULL year of ┬áRV living and travel. Looking back, it is amazing how fast this year has passed us by. But for the first…

The Struggle (and Joy) of Working in an RV

By Nathan | December 27, 2016

There are definitely some things I miss about a house. One of them was having a dedicated office. I’ve worked from home/RV for several years now. During that time, my office time has consisted of managing rental properties, working with website clients, and recently editing YouTube videos. When you live in an RV, finding a…

Living in the Moment

By Marissa | December 19, 2016

All good things come to those who wait. I really hate that saying sometimes. Mostly because it is not the answer I want to hear when I am desperately wanting something to hurry up and happen in life. So many instances occur where the only answer is to just be PATIENT. The biggest example of…

Minimalist Gift Ideas

By Marissa | December 12, 2016

What to buy a minimalist for Christmas is never an easy task. Believe me I get it. Our family has been asking us what we want for Christmas the past couple of weeks. It’s tough explaining to them we don’t need much and what we do need makes for very uninteresting gifts. Nobody likes to…

Tips On Downsizing and Decluttering

By Marissa | December 5, 2016

Living small means more than giving up STUFF and SPACE, it means changing your mindset on what is needed in life. We have this idea that we “need” all this stuff in our lives, but once you are living without these things you think you “need”, you become more aware this is not the case.…

The Land of “What If?”

By Marissa | November 13, 2016

We bought an Airstream! I still can not believe it. From the very beginning when we made the decision to live in an RV full time, we fell in love with the riveted life these beauties offer. Looking back over our journey of RV living, although we have had several RV’s, we don’t feel we…
