Tuesday Talk – How to Downsize and Get Rid of Emotional Items in Order to Go Tiny

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life.

This week we are talking about downsizing. Obviously in order to live tiny in our Airstream we had a LOT of downsizing we had to do. We talk about some of the methods and tips that helped us with what seemed like an epic task. Methods include going slow, the Kon Marie Method, and something like the Minimalist’s Box Party Idea. For those of you who have gone tiny, do you have any advice on downsizing? For those who plan to do so soon, do you have any questions or hurdles you’d like advice on?

Airstream Life – Our Bathroom DIY Renovation

We’ve shown you our bathroom in a previous Airstream tour but we renovated! We painted walls, “tiled” the backsplash and re-grouted the sink area. A couple of hours, less than $50 and the bathroom looks SO MUCH better. What do you think?

Our sticker “tiles” were purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SnazzyDecal

Tuesday Talk – Internet on the Road (Unlimited Data)

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life.

This week we’re discussing how to get and maintain good internet while on the road. We knew internet service was important to us and didn’t want to trust the wireless internet offered at campgrounds (plus we plan to boondock most of the time). So we researched and bought a grandfathered Verizon Wireless Unlimited Data plan back in January of 2016. We used it as our only internet source both in our home and ever since moving into the Airstream. We walk you through why we decided on this route and how we got setup.

Airstream Life – Our Bathroom and Closet Tour

This week we’re showing you the bathroom and main closet in our 2005 30ft Airstream. At first I was concerned that our bathroom doesn’t have a separate door but now I realize it actually gives us more room most of the time! Checkout our storage and how we keep things organized. I’ll show you how big the shower is and finally walk you through the second largest storage area in the Airstream…our closet!

Airstream Life – Organizing the Under Bed Storage

The largest storage area in our Airstream is under our bed. It can be accessed by lifting the bed inside or through the back hatch on the outside. This week I’ll show you everything we keep under the bed, explain why and show you how we have it organized.

Getting Lost 3 Times on the Turquoise Trail in Tucson AZ

On a past Saturday morning we decided to be tourists in our own city and explore downtown Tucson by walking the Turquoise Trail. The Turquoise Trail is a 2 1/2 mile loop trail that winds around downtown Tucson and is marked by a turquoise strip along the curb. There are 23 distinct stops on the walk with plaques at each stop (in both Spanish and English). The entire walk is dog and stroller friendly and can be done all at once or in parts. Be aware that the trail does cross itself multiple times so we recommend printing the map below. Even with it we got lost 3 times. O bother! However we realized how gorgeous downtown Tucson can really be. We highly recommend this to both locals and visitors alike!

Once we start traveling you can expect a lot more of these kinds of videos. Do you like them? No? Is there specific parts of our travels you’d like to see? We’re going to start exploring Southern Arizona and playing tourist in our own town this fall/winter so we’d love to get your feedback.

10 Lessons from 6 Months of Living in Our Airstream

This week we are discussing the top 10 lessons we’ve learned as we celebrate our 6 month anniversary of living in our Airstream. Our lessons range from what not to do (from personal experiences) to things we weren’t expecting when we first moved in back in April. We cannot believe it’s been 6 months already! We can’t thank our subscribers who watch our videos enough. You guy’s are making this journey so much more fun! We can’t wait for another 6 months and beyond…by then we won’t be in AZ anymore!

Friday Favorites – The Perfect Cup of Coffee – Aeropress Coffee Maker

Occasionally on Friday’s we’d like to share with you some of our Favorite Things. These can be products, websites, or anything else that we love. Note we will ALWAYS say whether we are sponsored in any form from the companies we are sharing and these videos will ALWAYS reflect our true opinions. These are the things that bring us joy and we hope they can become your favorites as well.

This week’s Friday Favorite is the Aeropress Coffee Maker and assorted coffee making accoutrements. Steve loves good coffee and we wanted to ensure that he could have good fresh coffee everyday WITHOUT using any electricity. Imagine waking up to gorgeous cloudy foggy mountains after boondocking in the middle of no-where for a while. What sounds more perfect than that cup of coffee? BUT we have to conserve electricity because it’s been cloudy and our batteries are low. Uh oh. We had used a french press in the past but since Steve is the only one drinking coffee they are often too big. Plus they take A LOT more water to clean than the Aeropress. After having used this setup for over a year now Steve is extremely happy. We even take it when we travel via airplane. It makes that cup of coffee in the hotel SO much better.

Airstream Life -Washing our Airstream Charlie

This week we take you with us on our Sunday morning chore of washing the Airstream. We haven’t given Charlie a bath since we got him in April and he desperately needed one. Watch our thorough washing job (well except the roof). Do you have any tips for washing your rig?

Meanwhile our leak did not reappear with the spray down! Yay! We’re still probably going to get the Airstream tested sometime soon though….
