You’ve seen them in the news, on the internet, and maybe even on the road. You’ve read about the freedom, the simplicity, and the happiness they can bring. And now you’re ready to start your own “tiny journey”.
But simplifying your life and finding the perfect home is no tiny task! There are an overwhelming number of options when it comes to finding the right tiny house for you. From legal requirements to simple aesthetics – where do you start!?
Folks seemed to enjoy my video 23 Quick Ideas for your T@G or T@B. It was a great way to get a slew of ideas from a lot of different creative people. So when I recently attended another gathering, T@bazona, I took the opportunity to gather some more great ideas!
Back in April, Kendrick and I moved from a T@G named Phoenix into a T@B named Rocky. Life has been a crazy roller-coaster of lessons, and we’ve learned quite a bit about living in our T@B on the road.
Finally, we’d like to share a little bit about our home, and some must-have items to making full-timing easier.
So you want your bike while you’re on the road, you say? But you can’t find a good place to put it, you say? Well I had the same problem! Can’t go on top of the car, because I’m too short and that’s where I store things. It can’t go on the hatchback of the car because I don’t want to move them just to open the door. Can’t go behind the trailer because it’s too long and I like my clearance.
Three years ago I didn’t know what a trailer rally was. Now they are the hub of my relationships with new friends and “camping family”. I recently attended the Texas Tiny Trailer Rally hosted by Princess Craft. Besides being a wholesome place to meet like-minded folks, rallies provide a unique opportunity to see a slew of great ideas all in one place!
I’ve attended my fair share of trailer rallies over the past couple of years, so I thought I knew exactly what to expect at this event. For the most part I was right – good food, good friends, and a boatload of great new ideas. Yet there were a few things I was still surprised by, namely the peaceful atmosphere and the picturesque landscape. However, by far the most surprising thing was the single most common word used by all the campers to describe one another: family.
