We lived full-time in an RV for about 1,300 days, and tonight is the last night I will spend in one as a full-timer for the foreseeable future. The blow is softened knowing that I have a king size mattress waiting for me at the house 😆.

All joking aside I'm so, SO excited to be moving back to town. I love RV life, but we're pretty tired, and have no wanderlust left in the tank right now.

This is my first time winterizing a camper, and oh my god this should not be this difficult. Turns out Leela doesn’t have an easy bypass system so I have to go get a hose to connect directly to the pump. Real PITA.

Welp, it’s happening. After 4 years of full-time travel, we’ve decided it is time to slide back into the rhythms of “normal” life, and signed a lease to move into a house in our hometown of Dover, OH for December 1st(!)

I love the time we spent traveling, and will always have the life-changing experiences that we had on the road with me. But yeah, I'm done. It's been 4 years and I've got no more go in my go yonders.

I'm sure it will come back, and I envision that I'll full time again in the future, but for now, we just want to slow down a bit.

Making this cabin feel more at home with a few inexpensive tweaks and cannibalizing from our now broken camper. The cabin smells like bread, and there’s some nice slow jazz playing from the TV.

We’re displaced, but refuse to accept that this means we can’t feel at home.

If you’re full timing in a camper, or boat, or whatever, drop what you’re doing and review your insurance policy. Learn about options related to a loss of use rider - because if your camper is out of commission for several weeks, you’re gonna be paying extra to live in a cabin or something in the meantime.

Learn from my mistake!

So…I think this might be how we exit out of full-timing. We were already poising ourselves to move into a house this Summer, but I think with my primary home, at best, being in a repair shop for several months, that we’re probably going to consider this a forced opportunity to exit. I really didn’t think we would be leaving like this, eesh.
