Putting the Cap Back on is a Bigger Deal than You Think

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Don’t fight over whether the lid gets back on the toothpaste or not. As a wife I took this advice and lived it. Whether it was the lid on the toothpaste, an organized linen closet, or returning items to their storage locations, I let the small stuff go. After all, is it really worth fighting over whether the cap gets back on the toothpaste or not? I thought not. I’ve been married for 19 years. For the first 18, I was responsible for 99% of the child …

Escapees RV Club

If you’ve never considered traveling full-time before, then you probably haven’t considered the logistics of such things like mail and taxes.

About Real Home Sense


is considered the place where one lives permanently.

The location you return to every night after a day of work or play. It’s where you keep your stuff.

Most people consider home static, non-moving; like an apartment, a house, or even a double-wide in a fixed location.

But more people are discovering that this definition of home doesn’t have to be true. The concept of home can live in your heart and if you learn how to SENSE it, home can be where ever you choose it to be. An RV, a hotel, an Air BnB, or a series of couches. Travel a city, a country, or the world, and still be home.

Home is a state of mind, where your basic needs are met and accompanied by  feelings of comfort.

Home is where your heart is – safe, healthy, and happy – but feeling alive and personal growth doesn’t usually happen here.

You need to step outside your door, and into a little discomfort, because that is where you’ll feel truly alive, and that is where the REAL adventure begins…



Let the adventures begin!
