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.

RV Living Questions: What types of RVs will accommodate small children?

Answers To Your FullTime RV Living Questions:  What types of RVs will accommodate small children?

Here is a question, I just found strange. I mean it seems innocent enough and all, and is really a great question to be asking before you buy an RV, if you have kids. Two parts of this question bother me however:

1) I don't have kids, and well, if you are a long time reader of EK's Star Log you know that I have had to deal with absolute utter hell, because after a miscarriage, my 30 years older than me handfasted spirit husband, who forced me against my will when I was 12 years old to become his wife, suddenly couldn't deal with having a wife anymore after 17 years together, and became a new person, complete with new identity, new memories, and new past life, which didn't include ever having a wife, and included a back story of being a virgin high priest, which he now pretends to be, at his church, and it was members of his congregation, who acted on his words of "she's a witch and a whore" to come to my house during Hurricane Katrina and cut the water pipes off our house, thus causing the flood that put my dad in a 6 month coma, sent my 3 minor brothers into a life of hell being tossed from one place to the next, and left me homeless and living under a tarp for 6 years...oh wait...we started rebuilding the house and 6 months after the flood, those same nice, lovely sainted Mormons returned and set fire to it...than I lived under a tarp for next 6 years. If you go back to the tap root of why I became homeless, it was because I was female Mormon who committed the outrageous sin of having a miscarriage. There isn't nothing I have ever wanted more than children, my whole life I have tried to adopt and been denied because I have Autism, and when I finally have a baby of my own, it died and my husband can't deal with it loses his friggin mind, and spends the last 9 years pretended he's a high priest who never had a wife, a story which causes church members to raise up in arms to make me homeless. And so for you to ask me about what sort of an RV can acomodate children, is a huge kick the face that makes me want to say: fuck you bitch. How dare you mention children in my presence! How dare you direct such a question to me, when you know what I have been through!

2) The other problem with your question is, I'm sorry but it's stupid. I lived under a 6x8 tarp for 6 years. Honey, ANY RV will accomidate children. I don't live in an RV because I want. I live in an RV because I don't have any other options at this time. And if I had a family of 10 or 12 kids, I could damn well pack them all into it and fight to the death to keep my family together regardless of wither it was a tarp or an RV that was acomidating us. Your question rings to the tone of a rich snob who cares more about size of your house than keeping your family together.

And I'm sorry if this post is more angry than is normal for me, but Honey you're a regular reader of my work, you should have known better than to ask me about children and expect anything less than bitter, hurt, pain, anguish, and disappointment from me. You are a sick ignoramous if you think it's funny to ask me about children in a motorhome....

But you want my answer? My answer is this: There is a local family, a mother with 5 children, living in a tiny junk car out back of WalMart. I could fit her car twice inside of my Volvo, 3 times inside of my motorhome. Honey, they don't make an RV that is unable to accomidate children. You can fit your kids in any RV you can afford to buy.

well, I answered you...not laughing now are we?
