Intro: The Start of an RV Adventure

At the end of April 2018, my husband, @Time2giver, and I quit our well paying, aerospace engineering jobs in order to start an RVing adventure. We spent the first month finishing our RV renovations, selling the bulk of our worldly possessions, packing what we were keeping and then moving those items to a family property in Ontario for storage. We were living in Savannah, GA, city we loved but but were feeling the call of the road and could no longer resist.

We really hit the road at the end of May in our 25' Class A RV, 1994 Safari Trek named Izzy, spending the month of June trekking across North America. We drove from Ottawa Ontario to Kelowna British Columbia going through Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon and Washington to get there. We loved every mile of it!

Since no adventure is complete without some complications we are doing our travels with our resilient, adaptable, persistent, stubborn, and curious fur baby, Monty. A 10 year old domestic short haired cat. Of course this is by no means our greatest complication the cherry on top is that I'm pregnant! We are expecting our first baby in late October but since the road called to us we decided to take our baby bump on the road and travel around my doctors appointments. We will take a bit of a travel hiatus near my due date and for some time after but plan to restart our travel adventures with baby and kitty in tow.

I hope you enjoy what I share with you here on Steemit. I plan to share photos and journals of our travels. We have multiple platforms we are using so feel free to check out what we have done so far on them.

Hello sprinkleofhealth! Welcome to Steemit! Hope you'll like the community here. As a start, here are 5 tips that we believe will be helpful to you:

  1. Keep your passwords safe: Unlike conventional sites, Steemit has 4 types of passwords. Each offers varying degrees of access to your account, so know where and when to use each of them. Also, make sure to keep them all safe and secure.
  2. Get Steem rewards: When writing a post, you'll have the option to choose how to receive your reward: "Default 50%/50%" or "Power Up 100%". As of this moment, choosing Default 50%/50% is the better option. But this can change over time. Check our post to know more.
  3. Upvote wisely: When upvoting, wait at least 30 minutes after the post is published to maximize your curation reward. Also, make sure not to upvote too much too fast so as not to drain your voting power.
  4. Know your Steem, Steem Dollars and Steem Power: Steem and Steem Dollars are the 2 main currencies here. Convert and power up more Steem into Steem Power so you can have higher values on your upvotes.
  5. Have Fun and Enjoy!

Hey @sprinkleofhealth! Welcome to Steemit community!

Dear Diana - welcome to steemit. Your RVing adventure sounds great. It’s amazing that you’re able to make that decision and go with with it by quitting your job. You’re brave. I have always wanted to do something like that but the security of the paycheck is preventing me from making that move. Maybe when our kids are older, we will do something audacious (by our standards).


Thank you! I promise it's well worth it to take that leap of faith!
