    Hitting the road soon!

    For a little over a year, I’ve been researching and preparing to move into an RV full-time. I’ve since bought a truck and a trailer, and with my apartment lease about to end, it’s finally about to happen! I’ve set up Money for Gasoline as a separate blog just for RV stuff. I want to keep […]

    My Resolution for 2013 That Worked: Carrying a Real Camera Everywhere
