Hello out there fellow travlers! My husband and I are super new to the full time life, we are traveling in a 2013 mesa ridge open range, 35ft bumper pull, towing with gmc sierra denali duramax hd. We are in our early 30s and would love to meet some people our age while we are on the road. My husband is a network and systems consultant working from the rv in the vitural world all day, and enjoys talking with fellow (as I call them) "computer geeks" LOL!

We are pretty laid back, enjoy the outdoors, good conversation and good beer!

We are in the Central Oregon area right now, sort of hoping around from free sites to free sites via our collection of passes. We will be doing this for a while, or at least until our home in Seattle sells. 

Would enjoy making some friends via this site!

I'm a former computer guy.  Admittedly though, I haven't been in the game since about 2008.  That's a few decades in computer years.  I've thought about doing some webpage stuff now that I'm looking for alternative incomes; just have to find folks that need a webpage designer I suppose.  Keep me in mind if you find any free or cheap places out there.  I love Oregon and hope to be out that way eventually.

For free sites, we have a oregon state parks pass, we only get 10 days a month free, but they all have electric/water and if you are really lucky you get sewer also, they are about 24 bucks a night. Also the fedral parks pass is usefull, we are heading to our fave spot in central ore, tomorrow, Haystack resoivior, you have to be self contained, no hookups or anything, but you camp right on the lake in the desert, it's amazing, 5 bucks a night if you have the fedral access pass. And we are using Thousand trails, came free with the new rig, we 14 nights free for the year and after that we pay 3 bucks a night. Talked to one of the hosts here who said they highly reccommend getting the bigger thousand trails pass, allows 21 day stays at a time.

Here's Kris' website for his personal computer stuff.

Nice. I've got an old RV I'm slowly converting to self contained so I can enjoy places like that. I have a link to my video blog in my introduction which was just before yours that shows it. I have A LOT of work to do yet. I'm getting ready to start working now, so I'll have to check out the link after work. Thanks for the friend request.

Yeah now that we have been checking out the social fulltimes sites we see a lot of people converting and updating older rvs. The thought never dawned on us, but now we wish we had looked into that route. I'm gonna check out your video.

Seems like your husband has the same idea I did with his web hosting stuff.  I use to run php sites for businesses and as a graphics designer I could photoshop any sort of images they wanted from scratch to picture touch up.  I got away from it a bit in the last couple years, but I thought about going back to it because on my travels in 2010 I met a lot of small business owners who's websites looked like they hadn't been updated since 1996.  I plan on swinging back through, desinging an example site for them and if they like it, figuring out what works between us for payment.  it wouldn't be steady income, but it would be a little something.

Welcome fellow computer geek RVers :)  We also hit the road when we were in our early 30s, and now 7 years later we're still at it. It's a wonderful lifestyle!

 

We're currently in Oregon as well.. but a bit further south down at Cape Blanco. We'll be here all month volunteer hosting at the lighthouse.  If you get down this way, let us know - we always love meeting up with others, and there's another NuRVer couple workamping here too.

Hello.  We are in our mid 30s and just purchased our first motor home.  We are looking to go full time in a few years.  I am a software developer and currently work from home.  I'd love to take my job on the road with me, but I'm worried about always having reliable internet access.  Most of the parks we've been to have very spotty cell signals.  And if they offer WiFi, its rarely actually usable,  So, how do you stay connected?

We are fortunate enough to have verizon unlimited data. We then use a tethering program. We are limited by needing a good signal also. We have given up reservations simply because the signal was less than 3g. Most actual rv parks have wifi and the only time there are issues is prime time. During the day most of the 55 and older are only checking their email once. You try to oark near the router. ...most of the smaller rv parks do not have commercial use routers, so the signal is weak. That being said we have been to a lot of parks that do have commercial grade routers. And if u tell them what you need a lot of times they know just where to put u.
