My Paradise has arrived!!!

Paradise has been delivered to my friends land in Round Rock, TX!  Time to start cleaning!  LOTS to clean… All 3 slides work 100%!  MOST of the interior lights work as well.  Most of the exterior lights do not work.  I still have lots to test and clean.  My actions items list is growing fast!  BUT most of the items are small and cheap (FOR NOW).  One of the slides has been gutted on the inside.  The furniture for the slide is gone too.  Lots to figure out there.  Here…

Paradise Found!

I have found her!!!  I have found, bid, and bought my RV 5th wheel trailer!!!!!!!  YAY!!! Meet Paradise (yes, thats her name): I got her as a repo.  She is a fixer-upper, but I am pretty handy! She was a steal!  I will get her livable in no time at all!  She does not leak at all and doesn’t even smell!!  Im thrilled!!  You will be seeing more and more updates from me now!  I will be documenting this project from start to finish!  I am THRILLED!!!

Positive support

When I was thinking about this adventure, I called my daughter, Evie, in Ohio and talked to her about it.  I was half expecting her to talk me out of the idea.  After I gave her the idea and plan, SHE WAS ECSTATIC!  Something I was NOT expecting. Damn…. NOW I HAVE TO DO THIS!! Evie is more like me than I was expecting.  She wanted to HELP!  She said that I am NOT to finish before she comes to Texas in May 28th!  Alright, babycakes… I am not gonna…

Searching for Paradise

So after looking at RVs for years, I know what’s out there. Now that I’m really going to be buying one, I know what my requirements are. So far I have found a few that meet my needs: Garage Dedicated space for bed Bathroom Inside kitchen Under 6,000 lbs Enough space for me and a part time guest Here is a good example of what I am looking for: I not gonna stop looking until I find my Paradise!!

Now what??

Ok, it was only 2 days ago that I made my decision to live in an RV Full time…. Since then I have been scared, thrilled, terrified, elated, and nervous (all in that order)!  I have to start going thru all of my stuff to make an effort to sell or throw away almost everything!  I have started to look at RVs and trucks.  I have found a few that are perfect.  I need to expand my search to include other areas outside of Austin. There is lots to do…

Another Day in Paradise!

Today I gave my apartment notice that I do not intend to renew the lease! I have no intention of getting another apartment again. I want to tell you about my plan… My dream since I was 8 years old is going to be coming true!!  I have been thinking about changing my life for awhile now.  I have been wanting to buy or BUILD an RV and travel the country.  Live full time WITH my snake, motorcycle, and photography equipment.  The challenge arises that I need to make money…
