Greg & Kara Prepare For Full-Time RV Living In The Desert


TRANSCRIPT:

Hi… I’m Greg and this is Kara… and we (used to) live in a desert suburb in Las Vegas.

For years, we planned on traveling the country in an RV and eventually settle down on a small piece of land somewhere.

You know, maybe live happily-ever-after off-the-grid.

So… we invested in solar power equipment, sold and stored a bunch of stuff, and even traded in our little Hatchback for a big 4×4.

Unfortunately, operating Kara’s skin care studio from a remote location wasn’t practical.

Plus, cellular Internet never seemed reliable enough for my web design business.

So, in 2019 we put our plans on hold.

And then… a few months after… everything changed.

[KARA] Yep, I shut down my skin care studio, Greg lost a bunch of web clients, and the lease on our house was coming up.

So we thought… maybe we should revisit those travel plans again.


The pandemic has had a profound impact on many aspects of our lives, including the way we work and travel.

For many people, the forced shutdowns and social distancing measures of the past year have led to a newfound appreciation for the freedom and flexibility offered by the full-time RV lifestyle.


The RV lifestyle has been growing in popularity for years, but the pandemic accelerated the trend.

The ability to work remotely and travel safely in one’s own self-contained home on wheels has become increasingly appealing to many people.

Many found themselves stuck at home, and the RV lifestyle provided them an opportunity to break free and still be able to work.


For some, the pandemic prompted a complete lifestyle change.

People who previously worked traditional office jobs and lived in houses or apartments began to explore the possibility of living full-time in an RV.

They found that the RV lifestyle provided them with a greater sense of control over their environment and their own destiny.


The pandemic also created a financial incentive to adopt the RV lifestyle.

With the economy in turmoil, many people found themselves struggling to make ends meet.

The relatively low cost of the RV lifestyle, compared to traditional housing, made it a viable option for those who could no longer afford their previous living arrangements.


For those who already lived in RVs full-time, the pandemic forced them to adapt their travel plans.

RV parks and campgrounds were closed, and many people found themselves stuck in one place for long periods of time.

The RV community banded together to share information about open campsites and boondocking locations, and many people learned to appreciate the slower pace of life and the joys of staying put for a while.


The pandemic also highlighted the importance of self-sufficiency and community.

RVers quickly realized that they needed to be self-reliant in order to survive the pandemic.

They had to be able to live off-grid, generate their own power, and find their own water.

The RV community also came together to support each other during these difficult times.

People shared tips and advice, and many friendships were forged through online groups and forums.


In conclusion, the pandemic has had a major impact on the RV lifestyle.

For many people, the ability to work remotely and travel safely in an RV has become more appealing than ever.

With the economy in turmoil, the low cost of the RV lifestyle has also made it a viable option for those who can no longer afford traditional housing.

The pandemic has forced RVers to adapt their travel plans and has highlighted the importance of self-sufficiency and community.

The RV lifestyle has proven to be a resilient and rewarding way of life, even in the face of a global crisis.
