Staying-at-home and other things that don’t come naturally to full-time nomads during a pandemic

Social distancing does come easy in places like this In case somebody hasn't notice: There's a global pandemic going on and in order to flatten the curve everybody is supposed to stay at home. You know, the home with a foundation and a mailbox and preferably HOA regulations, not the one with wheels and a grey water tank and definitel...

Why we love our tiny wood stove

First of all: look at this beauty. What is not to love about a classic cast iron tiny wood stove? But we’ll, it ain’t about the look obviously, looks won’t keep us warm in 2 degree F weather.  So how are we faring with that tiny wood stove about a year in and several weeks of subfreezing temperatures? It’s awesome! ...

Why we decided on a tiny wood stove

When we started the renovation Marcel came up with the idea of using a tiny wood stove as a heating source for our new trailer. Naturally, I told him that is weird and I don’t want that. But I couldn’t come up with a better idea, because all other options we’ve tried and they did.not.work for us.  The most obvious heati...

Winter camping in a vintage trailer

This post contains affiliate links.  It turns out, while everyone keeps chasing those perfect 70 degree weather, we’re “stuck” in the cold more often than we’d like to admit. Well, not really stuck. We just like to pretend like these are all funny accidents, but keeping it real: We just really like the snow (well, mos...

What the hell are we doing?

    [easy-image-collage id=2689] Wait, weren’t we supposed to settle down in Idaho?! Well, nobody said we’re people who stick to plans. Quite the opposite actually. ( I just realized I never actually blogged about that whole North Idaho Homestead Winter Experience Extravaganza. Maybe later) And so we are resuscit...

New Years

We started the new year on the wrong foot. Or, to be fair, it started going downhill on day 5. That’s when we left the party at Borrego Springs and the start of a long trip. But first things first. Christmas After an awesome week at the Joshua Tree Dry Lake Bed with friends we traveled to Joshua Tree South to hang out with...

Joshua Tree Dry Lake

Staying at the Mohave Desert was great, Mittry Lake was fun but the Joshua Tree Dry Lake Bed was awesome. I think the pictures may be better at describing how awesome it was. We pretty much kicked the kid out in the morning and shooed her in in the evening. The dust was everywhere and after we left we had a day at the Laundromat and t...

Mittry Lake

I’d say we always planned on/wanted to boondock but hey, we did pretty much nothing else the first 10 months. Only that we didn’t stay in those fancy nature spots but at Lowes or Walmart every single night. Florida is not known for being rich in nature boondocking possibilities and the few are a real pain midsummer. It’s like you ca...
