Hurricane Irma in Cuba

Here are some pictures of the storm surge in the street where I grew up back in Havana, courtesy of my cousin Titico.

The sea wall was completely covered by the storm surge
The ocean washing ashore one city block from the sea wall
Streets became canals in coastal Havana
Hurricane Irma Video

A couple of days ago I was able to upload a video of what transpired before during and after the storm. It was not an easy task given the limited access to internet we’ve had in the aftermath of Irma. I drove around until I found a decent Wi-Fi hot spot, and four hours later the video was uploaded.

Red Coconut RV Park

I conclude this episode by sharing our third road trip with Minitini, the trailer. For a more visual account check out the following video.

LTRVD Episode 20 – Peace River Thousand Trails

RV Upgrades

I have been making many upgrades and modifications. As you probably know I modifies the area where our TV used to be into a wardrobe closet. I also bought a Tire Pressure Monitoring System which works great. We replaced our faulty Atwood on demand water heater with a Truma AquaGo. Look out for this video this Sunday.

Change of Plans

While nothing is set in stone about our August road trip to see the “Great Eclipse” we have been toying with the idea of changing plans and going a little further west, towards the Kansas City area. Good weather probabilities are a lot higher there.

Peace River Thousand Trails

For our second voyage we went to the Peace River Thousand Trails because we got invited to a new member appreciation even that turned out to be a potluck.

LTRVD Episode 19 – Living Free, the one with mike O’Connor

In this week’s episode I talk about my recent trip to the Sebastian Inlet State Park, and chat with fellow YouTuber and full time RVer Mike O’Connor “Living Free”

This podcast is sponsored by Rad Power Bikes

Sebastian Inlet State Park

Last weekend we spent some time at Sebastian Inlet State Park. The highlight of the trip was the most beautiful sunrise, preceded by a very faint new moon moonrise. The park is a great place if you are into fishing or boating. The are also supposed to have very good snorkeling. But we didn’t have much fun there. First the park was very crowded on the weekend. The we got struck by a horrible thunderstorm, and the park lost electrical power and water. We were basically boondocking with an empty water tank.

Pelican Island National Wildlife Preserve

While we were there we also visited Pelican Island NWP, which is very close to the state park. We were the only people there, and the wildlife consisted mostly of very voracious mosquitoes. I think Florida mosquitoes have become immune to deep. The preserve does have the great significance of being the first National Wildlife Preserve, established by president Theodore Roosevelt in 1902.

Mike “Living Free”

In this week’s interview I chat with Mike O’Connor, a YouTube creator and full time traveler. We get his perspective on the freedom of living on the road. His favorite place is Rife Lake, in Washington. He documents his travels with his dog named Sober on his YouTube channel Living Free.

LTRVD Episode 18 – Wanderlust Estate

In this episode I interview fellow YouTuber, and nomadic van dweller James Weelock, who goes by the social handle: Wanderlust Estate

This podcast is sponsored by Rad Power Bikes
www.radpowerbikes.com (800) 939-0310

Who is James Wheelock?

James Wheelock is a nomadic van dweller, RVer, and fellow YouTube creator where he goes by the name Wanderlust Estate.  He’s also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

RV Classes

We discuss the pros and cons about the types of RV he’s driven. The Class A was comfortable inside but he hated having a toad. His current campervan is nimble and stealth but not totally self contained. I think we agreed that for both of us the best compromise would be a wide body Class B for him, and for me even a small Class C.

Favorite part of RV travel

Having the feeling of coming home every time, that you don’t get if you stay at a hotel.

Least favorite part about RV travel

The persistent stigma about full time RVers in society. Also the fact that there is always something breaking no matter the age of you RV.

Workamping and other work on the road

There are plenty of jobs, just not plenty of good paying jobs.  One of the best choices for James had been a ultra temp service.

He’s also done the Sugar Beet Harvest and Amazon Camperforce.

Favorite place: Yellowstone National Park

Overrated place: San Francisco
