Preparing for Travel

Although it’s true we’ve decided it’s time to get off the road, we do have plans to travel at least one more time before settling down for good! And since we plan to travel, we need to prepare!

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will take the truck in to be serviced and check to see that everything on the RV is in working order as well!

First, we’ll pack up those things we don’t use every day, donating that which we no longer need or use anymore!

The packing part is my biggest challenge! Figuring out what to keep, and what goes is difficult – especially since I have a minimalists point of few, and I live with a mother who is a bit of a pack rat!

Todays challenge: clear out the cupboard above our sink!

I recently found a set of 4 plastic wine goblets we have yet to use in our 3 plus years on the road! Seriously?!? Out they go!

So, with that said, I’m off to clear out a cupboard!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!

I’ve Become a Part Time Prepper

If you’ve ever been in the scouts as a young kid, then I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase ‘Be prepared!”

In essence, a prepper is someone that is prepared.  A prepper creates a plan for emergencies by gathering resources such as food and medical supplies.

They’ll even gain skills in case they don’t have access to power and water… or even a grocery store… remember 2020 when all the grocery stores were empty?!?

Basically, what it all boils down to is that a prepper will try to reduce their reliance on others for their survival in a crisis situation!

To that end, I have become a part-time prepper.

Although living in a small 22 foot RV, it’s difficult to have a large stockpile of supplies at the ready, but I do what I can!

When I go to the store, I will purchase an extra can of veggies, or fruit… or those bags of dried beans, peas and lentils…

However, when traveling, I need to be conscience of the weight our truck can haul, so I have begun to rely on freeze-dried foods.

They’re lighter in weight, therefore I have access to more food, and less water weight in canned goods from the store. Want to know where I get my freeze-dried foods? Click here!

I’m also honing my skills so that I can preserve the foods that come from our container garden… and I cook from scratch whenever possible! Would you know how to make your own pasta?!?

I’m always willing to learn a new skill, so that I too can be prepared in a crisis situation… to that end, I am doing what I can as a part-time prepper!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!
