You can ask 100 different full timers, and get a 100 different answers as to how they full time RV. This is how we full time RV and boondock all the time. It’s neither the right way, nor the wrong way. It’s just our way.
When we moved into the RV in June of 2012, we were already doing a lot of trips, and camping. We were comfortable with the rig, knew where we could and could not go, and already preferred the back of beyond to any RV park. Our first RV was 33 feet, and we were in it about a year. We were having way too many problems with that one however, and purchased this 39 ft Bighorn in August of 2013.
We are a bit more limited on where we can go, but we still manage to get off the beaten path enough to be happy about it. We also needed the extra storage this RV has, since we are carrying art show supplies with us all the time.
After the show was over, we went to a blog friends place outside Columbia Falls, and stayed a couple nights at their place. This was the first time we had actually physically met, and it was so fun to get to know her better. She took us to Montana wild wings, a bird rehab, were she volunteers. She got a few birds out for us to photograph, and we got to see all the raptors they have there. It was awesome. I posted pics and a video on Facebook, so if you missed it, check it out.
Almost exactly 9 years ago we spent 2 weeks in Glacier NP on our honeymoon. We hiked all over, explored the beauty, and loved every minute of it. We have wanted to go back ever since, so when we decided to do the Kalispell art show, it was a no brainer to visit Glacier again. The dilemma this time was, we only had one day in Glacier NP, with the dogs. Of course hiking in a national park with dogs is forbidden, I’ll never really understand why, so we settled for the road tour.
If you have only one day in Glacier NP, even with dogs, you can still see some beautiful scenery. Follow this road tour to see the best parts of Glacier.
Tuesday morning we left at 8am and headed for West Glacier. Everyone said that Glacier is packed, and the Going to the sun road can be a parking lot. Leaving early seemed wisest. Our first stop on the road was beside McDonald Creek just past McDonald Lake. The sun was hitting the water so perfectly.
It was still a bit chilly, so we didn’t linger too long.

As the proud owner of a new RV, you are undoubtedly starting to plan the trips you plan on taking and the lifelong memories they are going to provide. Eventually though, you are going to have to address the issue of storing your RV when you are not on the road with it. The vast majority of RV owners don’t have access to local indoor storage for their RV investment, and many are turning to using metal building kits to provide them with the storage on their own property. Building a metal building to store your RV in involves many different parties including: a county building department, a concrete contractor, a metal building manufacturer, and a metal building erecting crew. Having some insider knowledge regarding navigating the building process will save you time and money and help to insure the success of your metal building project – leaving you to focus on enjoying your RV.
