What I Miss Most About RV Life

After living in an adventure RV full-time for over a year, now temporarily stopping our RV Life so our kid can attend high school, the thing I miss most is opening up my front door to a different landscape and having easy access to nature. The world was our front yard. Sometimes we’d open the door and there was the Pacific Ocean. Other times it’d be a desert dotted with cholla cactus. And other times, a babbling brook, a river, a creek, a dam. One of my favorite memories is of waking up to the Sea of Cortez in Baja Sur, Mx — its white sand beaches intermittently filled with puffer fish corpses I had to leap over during my morning runs, and the water: depending on the time of day, a deep sapphire blue or seafoam green like mottled glass. Of course, there were times our front yard was none other than a WalMart or casino parking lot. But the novelty of being someplace different added to the fun of this life. And it was easy to explore new hikes or cook outside.
