Beginners Guide to RV Living: Tips and advice for RV camp, travel & homestead (Wood Tramp Guides Book 1)
***Be sure to let us know how we are doing by leaving us a review!***With RV living, you are in for the best time of your life!There has been a great movement of people that aren't afraid to live an alternate lifestyle. The surge of interest in off the grid living and homesteading have put the humble RV in a new light. Among the wide selection of RV books available, there is no "ultimate guide" to RV living. Someone interested in RV travel would require different information than someone interested in RV living full time. But, you can learn a thing or two from almost any resource if the RV lifestyle interests you. In this guide we have not only included information for folks interested in off the grid living, but the topics covered are applicable to most enthusiasts who are interested in RV camping, not just those with intentions of homesteading.
Anyone who wants to learn basic living skills—the kind employed by our forefathers—and adapt them for a better life in the twenty-first century need look no further than this eminently useful, full-color guide. Countless readers have turned to Back to Basics for inspiration and instruction, escaping to an era before power saws and fast food restaurants and rediscovering the pleasures and challenges of a healthier, greener, and more self-sufficient lifestyle. Now newly updated, the hundreds of projects, step-by-step sequences, photographs, charts, and illustrations in Back to Basics will help you dye your own wool with plant pigments, graft trees, raise chickens, craft a hutch table with hand tools, and make treats such as blueberry peach jam and cheddar cheese. The truly ambitious will find instructions on how to build a log cabin or an adobe brick homestead. More than just practical advice, this is also a book for dreamers—even if you live in a city apartment you will find your imagination sparked, and there's no reason why you can't, for example, make a loom and weave a rag rug. Complete with tips for old-fashioned fun (square dancing calls, homemade toys, and kayaking tips), this may be the most thorough book on voluntary simplicity available. 2,000 color photos and 200 black-and-white illustrations.
