March 2009

Hello readers! We're taking this show on the road.
I wanted to go back - flash to the past a bit - because we weren't able to announce anything about our plans. We've been living on the downlow in our RV for months now. So! I'm going to do some monthly updates here, so that you can get a feel for how our lives have been going, living in an RV full-time and working and looking forward to living on the road.
To start off, we bought our used RV from a nice man a few hours away from Savannah. It's a 1992 National Seabreeze RV, 33 feet long. It only had about 55,0000 miles on it, and runs on gasoline. Don't ask me anything else more specific - I can't help you. It' blue stripes. Ok! Enough technical talk.
Here are some photos to get everyone started. Here is our RV before we moved in, in March 2009:
Cockpit and part of the living room:
Dining Room/Office/Sewing Room:
Kitchen (it's a gas oven/stove and a microwave above):
Bathroom sink/Shower/Closets (the longer mirrored closet is mine - Noel has one the same size on the other wall):

It's interesting to see how much storage you think you have, until you start shoving stuff into various closets/drawers and then realize that no, you don't need 12 shirts (hopefully) because there just isn't room. This is also good motivation to lose weight. Really. Because with smaller clothes, more will fit!
The surprising thing we've found though, is that you really don't need nearly as much as you think you will. I have clothes in my closet that I haven't worn yet, after 6 months!
Stay tuned! More to come!
