Living my long standing dream, I've joined the ranks of the esteemed RV Fulltimer

I've looked at a few slide-in campers, lately.

But hadn't considered this possibility.

Since my scheduled departure date is looming closer (January 2012) I'm widening my search to include other possibilities. I REALLY have looked at a couple of slide-in campers. In theory, these models work with a Ford Ranger. But, I'm not convinced a top heavy camper on such a light weight vehicle is a good plan..

We've hit a bit of a bumpy road, here lately. Slowly, life is returning to some semblance of normalcy (I use that term VERY loosely.)

I also wanted to share a couple of great blogs, that I enjoy for various and different reasons.

Scott, The Quirky Travel Guy explores the US in a van. His blog features budget travel, and quirky attractions among other things. There's always something cool to read about here. Many of the pinpoints on my travel map I've found reading Scott's blog.

Today's find was Nate Walks America. Nate is walking from Delaware to California. Currently, he's in Kansas. He's pursuing his long-time dream of walking across North America.

I also follow Alison Travels Besides taking beautiful photographs, Alison shares the wonderful people she meets on the road. Most recently she met
Antsy McClain of Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours fame. I'm loving their music.

  3. Cyndi~the camper looks good and dependable, but.....not enough horsepower.

  4. Michael, I've actually been thinking more and more about a goat or llama cart. they're hardier than horse and easier to feed!

  5. Love the rig, but it looks a like a pain in the neck.

    The number of places you will be able to take live stock is limited. I haven't really looked into it, but I see "no livestock" all of the time. Have you thought about a donkey? The BLM sells them on the cheap. Unlike mules, horses, and donkeys, goats and alpacas, and llamas provide a lot more than just pulling power tho.
