It was over two years ago that I first stumbled upon Tynan's site. I was in graduate school in Washington DC, one of the most expensive places to live and was inspired to buy my own RV. I wouldn't have to pay rent, and I could still live in any city. I purchased my Rialta almost two years ago from amazingly enough another Tynan convert. What's the odds of that?
Last year, I traveled south to Florida stopping by in a bunch of cities but not often living in the RV itself. Today, I'm traveling west to Colorado and then the West Coast. I'll be making stops in Pittsburgh, Chicago, and likely somewhere in between Chicago and Boulder/Denver, maybe Omaha? I'll be volunteering at a Buddhist Geeks Conference in Boulder and staying around the area for a while before heading further West to Vegas, San Fran, and/or Oregon.
I never made a lot of modifications apart from the wood floor that the last owner already put in place and the solar panels I installed. But I'm thinking of selling the RV after this trip anyway. I got an opportunity in Boston, and RVs don't fare well in the winter on the East Coast. Or I might just keep it at a friend's place on the West Coast. Will see.
I'll be documenting the trip more here and on my blog. Hopefully, everything works out, and I'll fulfill my dream of going cross country after I first read On the Road back in high school.
Thanks to Tynan for living his extraordinary life and all the past people like Tom who gave advice previously. I have a bunch of old saved forum threads somewhere about what the best frig is and best charge controller.
