We are incredibly excited to announce that baby Ohlman #3 is due in February!
I know some of you (who know us personally) are probably wondering if we are planning a home birth. The answer at this point in time is… yes. We have yet to see how comfortable the midwife is with the small space. 😉
For those that are wondering: no, this doesn’t change our future plans for staying in the RV. We enjoy our little house with our little family… the more the merrier, after all!
We’ve been living in the RV full-time since August, 2016. Since then we’ve picked up a few products that have been game-changers- whether for keeping the RV clean, reducing cooking costs, or helping save space- these 8 items have been must-haves. My hope is that even if you aren’t a full-timer you’ll be able to find one or more of these items helpful. Even if not, it’s always fun to see what other families find necessities. 😉 » Read more
(This post was written long before we moved into the RV [July 9, 2016] but was never published. I ran across it today and thought it was too good not to share, so I’m posting it. I hope to do a follow-up “how realistic were my expectations” post soon.)
While it may seem like RVing full-time will be all roses (oh the places we’ll go! The things we’ll see!), realistically we know there will be plenty of mishaps, breakdowns, and rough days… just like life in any other house (okay, other than the “breakdowns”). So today I want to share a few things that I’ll miss about our “normal” home, to balance out all the “it’s going to be amaaaaaazing” posts you’ll usually find here. » Read more
An update at long last!
Sorry for the dead silence around here, life has been busy since moving into the RV. I hope that by posting this quick update it will get me out of the “no-post cycle” and into regular updates.
We’ve been in the RV for just a little over eight months, so it’s no surprise that we’re getting the question all the time:
how do you like RV life?

Even before we moved into the RV I knew that I wanted to keep an online log of all the RV parks we go to and what we think of each one. It’ll not only help us in deciding whether to use one again, but I hope it will also be useful to any other RVers who might be reading this blog. I got the idea from the blog Wheeling It and somewhat based it off of her RV park reviews. » Read more
Ever since we moved into our RV we have been trying to come up with a name for our rig. We went through so many ideas but we kept coming back to Behemoth. It seemed so apropos. » Read more

I figured it’s about time for a short update on our moving progress, so here it is!
Joshua and I decided to set June 30th as our goal date for having everything that we won’t be using on the RV packed and in temporary storage. Why a month out from our move date? Because it gives us plenty of time for unexpected contingencies and thoroughly cleaning out the apartment before we leave. » Read more
My husband is a geek for finding new programs. He typically gets excited about one, shares it with me, then quickly decides that “it wasn’t that great” for one reason or another. But folks, Airtable is a keeper! We have both been super impressed with it, and I use it all the time.Now, you may be wondering why I’m doing a computer program review on a site about RVing. Truth is, Airtable has saved my behind when it comes to packing our stuff and keeping it all organized!

Since we’re currently in the throes of packing our house, I decided to share some tips and tricks that I use in order to keep my sanity when overloaded with a complete house that needs to be packed. Truth is, I (Laura) have packed all my belongings and moved four times in the last two-and-a-half years (counting this move)… and that’s not even counting all the times I helped my family move growing up. So over the years I’ve found and implemented various packing “systems” that help me keep my sanity when packing my house yet again, and I think I’ve finally found one I really like. So I want to share it with you today. » Read more
