Welcome to My Full-Time RV Living LifeStyle Blog!

I suppose I should mention that this is an RV blog. The picture of me standing beside a motorhome in the banner probably tipped you off to that fact already, but you know how it is with blogs, any body can put anything in the header.

Anyways, I was born, raised, and live in Maine, I have 12 cats, and some people would call me homeless. Nope, I have a home, I just don't have what people call a standard house. My house has wheels and her name is Rosebud. My backyard stretches on for thousands and thousands of miles all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.

Once upon a time I had a "regular home" but a flood came and took it away. Me and my cats spent the next 3 years living under a 8x6 tarp and survived through 3 blizzards and Maine's coldest winter on record when the temps hit -48F. After that me and the cats moved in a Volvo. As hard as it is to live in a tent with 12 cats, it's even harder to live in a Volvo with 12 cats, and a motorhome named No Hurry was the answer. No Hurry: my home, my office, my RV.

I plan to use this blog to share my thoughts, ideas, adventures, and advice on being self-employed, living and working a full-time RV LifeStyle with an army of cats, while boondocking in the wonderful (and sometimes sub-zero) state of Maine.

I hope to write a post a day featuring random thoughts as they pop into my head, and hopefully 2 or 3 posts per week will focus on something helpful to those seeking to live in an RV full time. If you've any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions on what sort of posts you'd like to see me write, please comment and let me know.

I hope you all have as much fun reading this blog as I know I'll have writing it.

Happy Hurricane Day!

It's here! We've been waiting all week for this! The Hurricane Irene has touched down on Old orchard Beach! YAY!

Nothing better than aqua jogging on the beach, during a hurricane :) Had to cut my daily 2 miles down to a 1/4 mile though the waves were getting taller than me and the wind got to the point I couldn't walk against them any more. Happily I'm not the only insane person on the beach today - it's as busy as July 4th down there - only instead of swimming every one is down there video taping the storm! LOL!

Oh and if you are really, really really crazy, the Brunswick Hotel (Old Orchard Beach, Maine) is hosting a Hurricane Party on the beach tonight at high tide - 11:11PM...

Weird - half the businesses are boarded up and stacked with sand bags, while the rest are hosting beach parties. Half the town is evacuated and the rest of us are standing on the beach going "Oooooh look at that wave going over that house..."

There's a lot of people gathered around "The Hurricane House" this is the first hurricane since they built it...it's some sort of high tech revolutionary hurricane proof house, the theory being that even if the ocean lifts it off it's foundation and tosses it out to sea, it will remain intact. There's a crowd of people gathered praying the flood waters will go high enough to drag the house off it's foundation, just to see if it falls apart or not.

Watching nature at it's worst. This is better than going to the movies. We must be the coastal versions of Tornado chasers.

THIS is how I got the nickname "The Sea Witch of Old Orchard Beach"...In 20 years I've never missed standing on the shore during a hurricane.

And uhm... the police are on stand by with body bags...that's always encouraging... LOL!

Did I ever mention my favorite weather is hurricanes?

No kites down there tonight - I think the wind would shread them in an instant! it's going over 70MPH right now.



Hurricanes - the whole reason I live on a beach :)
