Full-Time RVers – When the Wheels Quit Rolling (on Day 2!)

Blown RV Tire Bubble Full Time RV Campers

Ok, not that they actually quit rolling, but it was close. According to James, the wonderful technician sent out by Coach-Net, our tire was faulty. As in, the center ring on the tire was completely disconnected from the actual tire. Luckily, right before we pulled out of Noccalula Falls, Alabama, we discovered the bubble seen below on the tire. We immediately made the decision to call Coach-Net and take advantage of the roadside assistance we purchased when we bought the RV. We called them, provided all the information about our RV, the tire, the problem, and everything they needed to know. They took our phone number and immediately began their search for service technician in the area. Once they found them, they called us back with a quote for the cost of the tire. Once we approved the quote, they sent the company out with a tire and all the necessary equipment to change the tire.

Thank goodness for James. He quickly changed our tire, tightened all our lug nuts, and checked the air pressure on all our tires. And he even provided a few campground recommendations for us for the future. HUGE thanks to James for the speedy service and a big thanks to Coach-Net for taking care of everything else. Our roadside assistance purchase has already paid off! I highly recommend Coach-Net after this experience and plan to always carry their services (along with the AAA we already carry).

The Beginning of a Journey – We’re Full-Time RVers

Full Time RV Family Start Their Journey

Today is the day! We hit the road early this morning and took the office on the road! We drove for about 10 hours as we started our westward journey. The house is sold, the cars are sold, and all that we have left are the items that fit inside the RV (and one storage unit of memories and a few special furniture items). It was such a long day and we’re exhausted, but excited to be in South Dakota by the weekend.

Meet the 3 Gypsys!

Gypsy 1 – Gypsy 2 – Gypsy 3!

After all the driving, we decided to stretch our legs and walk around to the see the gorgeous falls. Such a simple little park where you can view the waterfall from the top looking down. While we love to hike and explore, this waterfall was perfect for today after 10 hours in the truck. We learned about the history of Noccalula Falls and Princess Noccalula, a Native American Princess who ultimately jumped off the cliff of the waterfall to avoid marrying into the enemy tribe. The statue at the top of the falls is a reminder of the sacrifice she made for her tribe so many years ago.

The campground itself is very simple, but beautiful. So many trees and rivers surround the RV park and it is an easy walk to the Falls. We didn’t have much time to explore as we’ll be driving out early again tomorrow, but it is definitely somewhere we wouldn’t mind coming back to explore some more.
