Last week when we decided to evacuate Savannah as Hurricane Irma approached, I wasn’t happy. The next day as we drove west to Macon, GA, we found out Rivers End Campground on Tybee Island, where we had been staying, had [Read more…]
To everyone who has ever said that RVing requires flexibility…
I really don’t want to hear it.
No, really. My husband will attest to the fact that I’ve basically been throwing the adult version of a toddler’s tantrum. [Read more…]
Eric was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes on July 31. Earlier this month when I shared the news on our blog, we were still trying to get his blood sugar in the normal range of 80-130. Thank you for the outpouring of encouragement and advice. The least we can do is give you an update on how things are going here. [Read more…]
When you start RV life, the wind fills your sails and everything you see is shiny. Don’t get me wrong–almost four years in, and the wonder of fulltime travel is still here. But problems catch up with you, no matter where you are or what you’re doing.
Problems caught up with us in Cave City, Kentucky. [Read more…]
It’s been public on social media since last week when we made the announcement, but we’ve been adjusting to a medical diagnosis given on July 31. Hard to believe it’s been less than a week and half, considering how much our lifestyle has already changed.
Fulltime RVers aren’t immune from “normal” challenges, sickness being one of them. But we’ve joined a courageous band of travelers who don’t let conditions or diseases keep them from traveling. There are still unknowns, but we’re determined to protect our life on the road.
In the process, we want to encourage others who are facing unknowns of their own. So here it is–transparent as always–the beginning of our fight against [Read more…]
I used to dismiss trolley tours as “too touristy.” But after our tour in Savannah in 2014, I disembarked convinced that guided trolley tours are an excellent way to get the overview of a city, plus learn tons of history. Even if you don’t budget time to get off at every stop, you can always return to the places that caught your attention later.
When the Asheville Visitor Center generously offered us tickets to the Gray Line Trolley Tour, we jumped at the opportunity. [Read more…]
“What has been your favorite place to visit?” For the past two+ years, our answer has been Hot Springs, Arkansas. We had the best time when we visited in spring 2015. Our campground was beautiful; we loved the historical bathhouses at the national park and the Gangster Museum of America, and we frequently indulged in the burgers and cocktails at The Ohio Club.
So it was interesting to return more than two years later, with so many miles in between. It isn’t our favorite place anymore, though it’s still in our top 10, if not top 5. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with Hot Springs. It’s just that there’s so much [Read more…]
I love staying organized and keeping records. But for some reason, I’ve had a hard time creating maps of our travels that make sense and look pretty. After three and half years of it bugging me, and me doing nothing about it, I finally sat down this month and created a color-coded Master Map of allllll our RV adventures, from when we started in February 2014 to now.
Drum roll… [Read more…]
Everything has been breaking lately. We purposely went to see our mechanic before leaving Central Texas, and pretty much the second after, the issues started. I won’t go into all of them now, but you can watch us talk about them with a sense of humor on our Facebook Live video.
One of the things that broke during our last drive was our wardrobe rod. The only support, a wooden piece in the middle with four screws, came loose and all our clothes fell [Read more…]
We moved out of our Austin apartment and into our RV on February 21, 2014. Two days later, we started a radically different lifestyle of fulltime travel as we left Austin for our first adventure. At the time, we knew almost nothing about RVing, and we certainly didn’t know what to expect from our choice.
Coming up on three and a half years later, I’ve changed. It was noticeable when we returned to Hot Springs, Arkansas last week. It was like going home after your first semester of college–the scenery is the same, but you’re different.
If you’re wondering what this lifestyle could mean for you, hop into the RV Wanderlust time machine to see how time and travel can transform a life. [Read more…]
Welcome to RV Wanderlust! We're Eric and Brittany Highland and we're on a pretty amazing adventure. As of 2017, we're starting our fourth year as fulltime RVers and we've been transparently documenting the journey all along the way. In December 2016 we … Keep reading
