We're Airstreamers, but don't call us trailer trash!

Well, we've done it - we are Airstreamers. As of last Friday, we have officially moved out of our large 1600 sqft house and into our Airstream trailer , just a shade larger than a tenth of the size of our previous home. And so far, we're loving it. It's just my wife and me along with our two dogs who rest comfortably at night between the bed and the curved walls of the Airstream.

The plan: Moving things along by moving out early?

What if we moved out of our spacious 1600 sqft home early in 2016? Originally, we weren't scheduled to move until the end of the year.

Our adventures in limiting our Internet data usage

One of the biggest changes inherent in our planned move from a house into a 200 sqft RV isn't just the space that we'll be living in while on the road. It's also our Internet connection. Like most of us, we're used to virtually unlimited broadband Internet access at home. But cellular based data connections are very, very different.
