WELCOME TO MEANDERING LIFE!

Join our adventures as we travel the USA in our travel trailer!

BEAUTY MUST BE SHARED

We share scenes like this with you along with the information needed to get there and see it for yourself.

SHARING OUR TRAVELS

We share our travel details with you so you can not only see the beauty that we are seeing but to hopefully inspire you to also visit these areas of the United States for yourselves!

SHARING OUR EXPERIENCES

As full-time travelers, we will share our experiences with you.  Mainly what full-time RVing is like but also what our thoughts are on the places we’ve visited.

SHARING OUR PHOTOGRAPHY

Jason is, first and foremost, a photographer.  He will share his favorite images from around the United States.  He’s also learned what works best for him gear wise for full-time travel and will share that experience as well.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

If any images inspire you, consider purchasing them from our online store.  This is the best way to support Meandering Life so we can continue bringing you our story.

One Year on the Road

This post is coming to you late, since we hit our one year anniversary on October 16th, 2018.  I’ve been struggling with exactly how I wanted to write it.  As you’ll see below, I opted for a bulleted method to try and keep the points precise and not get to wordy. If you are reading […]

Life After a Heart Attack

[NOTE:  I started writing this post several months ago but never completed it.  Decided to finish it up as it contained good insights about what I’ve been going through.] Most of you reading this blog are aware that I suffered a fairly substantial heart attack back in late June of this year.  For those not […]

Dexter EZ-Lube Axles – Expensive Mistake

Any RVer or person with a trailer (boat, hauler or any other) knows that axle bearings require regular maintenance.  If you don’t know that, please have your bearings checked soon!  We are surprised by the amount of folks who either don’t know or think it isn’t necessary but every few years or so.  Almost all […]

New Domicile State – Mail Forwarding for RVers

One of the first things we are often asked is how do you get your mail as full-time RVers.  Since leaving Evansville, Indiana on October 16th, 2017, we have been using Misty’s parents house as our address and mail forwarding address.  Once we had a few important pieces of mail they would just mail a […]

The RV Lifestyle

When we set out on this journey we were calling it the “Trip of a Lifetime”.  We had a goal of spending twelve months on the road exploring this fine nation of ours all the while looking for a new “home”.  We had the budget for it and a “plan”.  It didn’t take long however […]
