We have been living full-time in our RV for over a year now and, though we are retired, we must still work to maintain our lifestyle (someone has to pay for all the maintenance and repairs).

Years ago, on our first RV trip, we found ourselves boondocking on BLM land in Arizona in a place that fits the description, “the middle of nowhere”.

This week we're excited to feature members Michael Sutton & Louise Levergneux michaeljdsutton, who wrote us recently when renewing their guest subscription to say:
"This has been the best investment we have made since beginning full-time over a year ago. You guys are awesome."
We liked what they had to say so much that we asked them to tell us a bit more about themselves and their journey! Check out their story and video below, and be sure to visit their blog, the pictures alone are amazing!
This week we have a guest post from member gypsynaround who have a blog of their journey over at https://gypsynaround.wixsite.com/gypsynaround.

If you like what you read be sure to head over to to their blog and follow the rest of their journey!
