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.
Video compilation of one week of kayaking on the Chassahowitzka River
We rented kayaks from Kayak Karavan near Homosassa, FL for a week. Roger went a little crazy with the GoPro and cut it down to this short compilation. Enjoy!
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.
Made a short video of Aeropress Instructions in our travel trailer:
You can buy them on Amazon:
Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker
Aeropress Instructions are as varied as the weather. The basic instructions do a good job but we have found that stirring the grounds a bit more makes for a better cup of coffee.
- Less Coffee Used
- Less Water used
- Less Electricity
- Better Coffee Faster
Kate says: makes espresso, regular or iced coffee
Roger was on the Our Big Dumb Mouth show last week with Mike and talked about living fulltime in a Trailer and poo.
