One man called Kevin Cyr from Brooklyn did not stop at journal entries and taking photos – he took what he loved about camping and put it together into one cool art project. Kevin built the Camper Bike as part of an exhibition called Home in the Weeds. The idea behind the series was a hard look at self-preservation and human persistance in a world in which the housing market is becoming crazier by the minute. I adore this idea, I only wish this could really exist. Tags: art, Camper bike, fun, Kevin Cyr, unusual ideas. Where do all the Fulltimers Go. Recently we received a question about what fulltimers do when they hang up the keys.
Since their expensive RV’s have depreciated and the house is no longer an investment, how do they cope (and pay) for the transition? John and I decided to follow our dreams to become fulltimers as soon as our military contract was over. We were both very young to think about retirement (in our mid 40’s) but a life of travel was so much more appealing than a second work career. Both of us receive retirement pensions from the Canadian military so with an adequate amount of steady cash coming in every month, hitting the road to see North America for two years seemed a logical direction to take. Well our two years has now stretched to over two decades. However there are other options available – several RV friends choose to pay cash for their units so they don’t have to deal with monthly payments.

Most who do are usually testing out various money-making schemes and then providing the details to their readers. And most of their readers are there in the first place because they want to learn techniques that will help them pay for their future travels. We’re not that kind of blog. We’re the old kind of travel blog, where we just share the things we have seen and experienced. Some of you are following along because you are friends and family or co-workers. However, I do want to give you a small update on our finances for reasons I will detail shortly. Going forward, our expenses will definitely drop next year when we stop paying for vehicle and RV insurance and gas and RV park fees. As part of that, Glenn has entered this blog into a little competition called “The 1000-1000 Travel Blog Challenge.” As a reader, you probably won’t see much difference. So that’s it for now.
