Year 3 Summaries


Having been a member of this forum since I first started researching full-time RV living, back in June 2013, I always appreciated people who would do year end summary blog posts.  It was just a great way to get a quick snapshot into their world, and I couldn't get enough of it.  Bill, being a fact driven guy REALLY appreciated them! (Still do btw! something about comparing your way to others way to see if you can learn anything new!)

So, having been full-time for 3 full years now, and in the spirit of paying it forward - here are links to our Year 3 Summaries.  Hope they help someone out as much as others helped me.  Yes - there are 3 - 2 with a bunch of numbers and the third with some non-numbers thoughts.  Feel free to check other year end Summaries or any other info if you'd like.  Each year, as we learn new things, our Summaries reflect that.  

We have worked at Amazon (and are returning for peak 2017!), and completed summer seasons workamping, in AK in 2016 and most recently in NJ.  

While I haven't been as active here as I once was, Bill and I still find this to be the best source of info for most any RV'ing questions.  We are also, so far, planning to attend the spring 2018 rally in Pahrump and it would be nice to get to know you guys better again!

Great Blogs!!! It's always interesting and helpful to read annual recaps. Although everyone's RV life is different, there is always something new to learn. The Elks membership was a surprise for me. I had no idea that initial costs were that low, and the nightly costs are a bargain.

We are just beginning our fifth year and still loving our nomadic lifestyle. We are in the process of changing from a Class A gasser to a diesel pusher. RV envy bit me, so it was time to add a few feet and many horsepower.

After all the years we have read the RV-Dreams forum we will be attending our first rally in Rahrump. We look forward to meeting you and the other attendees.

Great reports. As a numbers guy, I can appreciate your analysis of the vehicle expenses and rationale for your decisions. We are sorta on the fence about the Washer & Dryer but leaning toward having them. For now, we'll have it plumbed in to our future rig and then decide whether we want to get them later. Nope, we have no plans to do an Amazon gig....disbelief but that's just us.

So keep the reporting coming, we are eating it up.  

Hope to see you down the road.
