Dealing With Trash in an RV (So Far)

We've been on the road for 2 weeks now. We started our journey with a 4-day stay at Palmetto State Park, then a few days in San Antonio, followed by 5 days in Corpus Christi, split between Denise's folk's house, Malaquite Beach, and Mustang Island State Park. In that time, we've made quite a bit of trash. This is how we're dealing with it.

A week's worth of trash from our first week on the road, from left recyclable material, compostable material, and landfill trash, bottom right is Kimbo's poop. We used to compost and recycle most of our waste when we lived in a house. This volume has been typical over the past weeks.

Map Update: Route Changes

Regular visitors to this site will notice the original map in the right rail is different. That original map was created as a "dream trip" when we first decided to travel full time in an RV. Now that we're on the road, we're seeing that things won't go as originally planned. Reservations are required for some sites, some friends aren't available at the time we'll be passing through, and we started later than we planned. And there's so much to see!

We use RoadTrippers to plan and display our route. The website and mobile app are great for finding attractions between points on your route, such as restaurants, tourist sites, and lodging.

Jim's Overlaner

Jim Cross loves camping, bicycling, and Toyota's. His overlander set up combines the best of those worlds.

Gearing Kimbo Up for Travel

Kimbo has always been a good traveler. He's gone with us on several camping trips and even on a trip to Washington D.C. The only place he didn't like was the beach. His pink skin is prone to sunburn and I think the gritty, unstable sand interfered too much with his favorite pastime -- fetch.

Here's what we brought for Kimbo while we travel full time in an RV.

Farewell Austin

The past few days have been a blur, but we're now set up at our first site and diving head first into full-time RV living. It didn't come without a few kinks. I had arranged to do a farewell tour of friends in Austin on Sat., April 1. Loretta the RV pulled an April Fool prank on me.
