Alyssa Padgett and her husband Heath run one of the best groups on Facebook for people who live and work from RVs full-time (or want to).
Even though the group focuses primarily on the ins and outs of nomadic entrepreneurship, questions about full-time RV life come up all the time.
How do you get your mail?
What about health insurance?
How do you connect to the internet?
What if I don’t want to empty a poop tank?
Since the group’s inception in July 2015, Alyssa and other members have answered these same questions, plus at least a dozen more. Over. And. Over. Because when any of us latch on to the idea of living in an RV instead of a house or apartment, and not waiting until we’re too old to enjoy it, there are questions. Lots of questions. And we want answers – NOW.
On their blog, Heath and Alyssa are pretty transparent about where they’ve encountered problems or screwed things up. This guide is full of the same honest, balanced advice.
Although I haven’t yet read the final version of the guide, I helped Alyssa set it up for editing and publishing. I saw the chapters she included and skimmed most of the text. I am impressed.
I wish we’d had this guide when we first considered full-time RV life. Instead, we ran around the internet sucking up the good advice along with the bad, spending months to sort it all out and learn the things Alyssa packed into her guide.
Even though I’ve read much of it, I am eager to get my hands on the final, searchable Kindle version of the guide. I pre-ordered it a few days ago, so it’ll show up automatically tomorrow. It’s only $2.99 – a small price to pay for trustworthy advice delivered in an engaging style.
You can get your copy of A Beginner’s Guide to Living in an RV: Everything I Wish I Knew Before Full-Time RVing Across America on Amazon. Yep, that’s an affiliate link, and you’re darn right I’m getting paid for plugging this book. 12¢ for each copy sold.
Now that we’ve cleared up that potential conflict of interest, I’ll confess that self-interest actually is in play. See, Wandering Porcupine isn’t an RV blog per se. If I can point you to a well-produced, already-done (by someone else) resource, count me in.
p.s. – The guide will be on a free promotion Wednesday and Thursday, November 15th and 16th.
