Our experiment began in April, a very cold month in the Cascade Mountains then ended the last day of October, also a risky month for cold weather. But there were some very nice days in between those cold months. One of the first things we discovered was that our experiment had some flaws in the planning. If we were truly full time RV, we would likely be moving several times each month finding a new surrounding when we did. We would also not be going to work in separate directions each day, instead living within 300 square feet of each other most of the time. Those seem like pretty big questions that would go unanswered with our experiment. On the other hand, we did prepare and eat most meals together and learn to store, wash and dry our clothes in a small space. We own a Golden Retriever and cat and needed to know how they would take to the RV lifestyle too. Both pets loved this lifestyle and Morgan, our Golden, even wrote several stories about her adventures.
We have learned much about full time RV living even though we did not move for the seven months we were at the lake and both Gwen and I had to continue our "day-jobs". As I was writing the stories for our Webpage I made a list of advantages, disadvantage and problems needing solutions. One of those problems was major for us. We did not have Interent access at the lake and knew it must be solved. We chose to install mobile satellite Internet in our trailer. Although this required substantial investment, we now have 24/7 connection from anywhere we might happen to pull our fifth wheel.
We have already committed to another season at the resort but this time we will rent our home (the next step) and probably not return to this house until we are ready to sell and retire to travel in our RV.
