It often seems (to other people and to me too), that this must be the perfect life! I can just wander around with my camper, going wherever the latest whim takes us. Uphill Zen life is pretty darn sweet! 😎

But like anything, there are ups and downs. Good days and bad ones. Times when everything’s rolling right along, and others when it seems like the Universe is conspiring against us!

Even so, I wouldn’t want to change it for anything!

But I want to share some thoughts on what it’s REALLY like, living out on the road, with no fixed home, so this where I’ll do that!
