That’s it! I’m official. I am no longer a Cali resident. Thanks to the help of Bob Wells and his blog on, I am now officially a Pahrump, NV resident. Was fun to spend a week there and spent time with some other “Rubber Trampers” while I got I it all sorted. Can’t tell ya how fun it was to play COD Zombies again with my new buddy Bryce. I still have my old system in storage but Bryce has a friggin cargo trailer Man Cave, were he has enough solar power to run a big screen and an Xbox. Who said you have to give up life’s pleasures because you travel.

And the sunsets… if you follow my Insta you’ve probably noticed I was loving those sunsets.

I had my own ways of getting everything I needed for my residency switch. Not sure how much I’d want to go into detail about it publicly, but it you have any questions regarding residency for full time travelers feel free to email me directly. Though your best bet is to check out as there is a wealth of knowledge on the subject there.

    I am very curious to why you would change residency? Did it have to do with van registration and smog issues?

      There were some issues related to smog but the van had been registered in California before so they would have hopefully been somewhat inexpensive fixes. I also took into account ease of establishing a residency and financials.
