Stand Up Paddle Boarding at Lake Julian Asheville, NC

To inflate or not to inflate?

We have wanted Stand Up Paddle(SUP) boards for at least 5 years but there was always an excuse or road block preventing us from getting them. Recently we decided that having an inflatable setup would make the most sense for our current situation. Have hard boards would require purchasing additional equipment to carry them around, while inflatables could easily be stored in either our truck bed or the trailer when travelling. We started researching and learned there are a lot of options for inflatable stand up paddle boards.

Kate saw that a fellow full time RVer, the Snowmads, were using Fisher boards and were very happy with them. After looking into their options we decided that they made sense from a quality and price perspective. So we ordered two Fisher Blowfish boards, picked them up at the FedEx facility near Atlanta and took them to Asheville for their maiden voyage.

Here is a short video of our first voyage on the boards at Lake Julian near Asheville, NC.

We discovered this lake from a blog post on A Wonderful Vegan Life.

How we add Fresh water to fill our rv

Adding fresh water to your rv can be a challenge when boondocking

Roger made a video showing how we fill our fresh water tank from our water jugs.

Ever wondered how we stay for fresh and so clean? We shower with fresh water of course! The problem is that we only have a 40 gallon tank and we average about 7 gallons per day between the two of us. So at best we are only gonna make it a little over 5 days before we need more water. Rather than hook the trailer up once a week we fill our 7 gallon water jugs and pour them into the tank. After 6 months on the road we have a pretty good system for pouring it in.

This fulltime RVing thing isn’t all roses and sunshine. Sometimes mother nature reminds us that we are just temporary passengers.

Case in point: The other night we had some rain and wokeup to a bit of flooding. Luckily we are not on the ground and everything in the trailer is dry. We also learned from the last time we got a lot of rain and picked everything off the ground that would get soaked before the rain got too crazy.

All in all its a good thing to buy a pair of galoshes – Buy Galoshes on Amazon
