"We can make it if we try..."

A blog is only useful if it has readers. I tend to read blog posts only if I feel that the information will be useful or entertaining to me. Most of the time I like to feel a connection to the writer, which is much easier if I know a bit about them. Do they think/act the same way I do? Do they live an interesting life? What drives them to do what they do? These are the things I like to know. If you want to know more about my family and myself,...

Are we fulltimers?

I see the occasional discussion about what constitutes fulltiming: If you have a house, can you stay in it or must you 'camp' in the yard? Must you rent it out? Can you have a house at all? Do you have to always be 'on the go'? If not, How long can you stay put before you must bug out?

We moved into our trailer at the end of May 2011 when we moved out of our townhouse. Everything we did in our townhouse we now do in the TT. It is our home. We live in...

When we moved into our TT, one of my 'musts' was to keep all of the tools that I might need. I pared down my tool set quite a bit, getting rid of the duplicates, with the hopes that I would be able to do anything in the trailer that I was able to do at the house. This idea got put to the test in our first month when the infamous 'Chevy lower intake-manifold gasket' sprung a leak in the Suburban. I was able to perform all of the work with my tool bag, and without a manual (I have a Haynes manual...

Over the last few months I have noticed a fading in the brakes of our Suburban. It brakes acceptably, but it has gotten progressively worse. No squealing, pulling or studdering... just taking more pedal and distance to stop. Also, it has been pitching more on brake application which told me the shocks might be bad.

I got underneath it a couple of weeks ago and noticed that the shocks were 'no-name' brand (probably original) and had lost most of their dampening effect. After doing a...

On the last weekend in May 2011, we left the house for the trailer one last time and took it out for it's (our) maiden voyage: a trip from Phoenix down to Tucson to see family. While in Tucson, we showed off our new home for the first time to our family and friends. It got a warm welcome from most. We also made a few calls and set up arrangements for a place to park it once we got back into the Phoenix area.

It was a short trip, lasting only three days, but I felt awesome about it....
