Our previous visit in Maine with the grown-up half of The Wandering Nation crew was great fun, but learning about Matt's hobbies have since created a huge dent in our wallet. For example, Matt has a Davy Crockett Green Mountain Grill. Because Velma doesn't have an external propane hook-up and has limited external storage, we have gone without outdoor cooking options since we've started full-timing. Jeremy had been eyeing the Davy Crockett for a couple of months but we were not certain we should committ. Matt gave Jeremy a hands-on tour of the grill, his set-up process, and his break-down process. Turns out, this grill is perfect for our needs. Jeremy was sold. Oh, and did we mention this grill can be operated by wifi?! Lastly, Green Mountain Grills has amazing customer service. Matt shared a few stories about how awesome this company has been to full-timers in sending parts out on the road. Jeremy has already experienced this amazing service with a part upgrade that was sent first-class at no cost. If you are in the market for a pellet smoker, definitely give Green Mountain Grills a look.Read More

Once we sold our house and left Nashville, we spent a few weeks in Southern Illinois with Jeremy's family. Those weeks were spent seriously moving in to the Viper, as when we were still in Nashville, Velma was parked on the street we couldn't put our slides out. While we moved in and tinkered around, a few things got added to a "we should probably leave this to some professionals" list which lined us up for another trip to Elkhart, IN. (One of the fun items on this list was installing our Nature's Head compost toilet! We love this thing so much we're going to have an entire post dedicated just to our hippie toilet. You're excited aren't you?)
This being our third stay in Elkhart - and our longest as we arrived just as the NeXus crew was finishing up their fleet headed to the Hershey RV Show - we actually spent quite a fair amount of time out and about in Elkhart and the surrounding towns.
This post is a wrap-up of our highlights from our 5 night stay in August. If you want to see even *more* pictures, make sure you "like" our Facebook Page as I'll be sharing an album of photos there, too.Read More
