About Will and Alicia Smith, the Full-Time RVing Happy Vagabonds

By William Smith+


Vagabond - A person without a permanent home who moves from place to place.

From Will and Alicia Smith, hello to all our friends and visitors. We want to welcome you to experience the savory delights of the full-time RV camping lifestyle from our perspective. Rather than putting a photo gallery here, you will find photos of a few of our travels scattered throughout this website.

Camping In Texas

Many people thought we were nuts to drive off into the sunset without a clue as to how we would provide for ourselves. No home, no retirement account accumulating, and no steady job.

No, it is not for everyone. No, it has not been perfect. Yes, there was uncertainty, doubt, and plenty of fears. Having lived the dream, it has been well worth the price for us. We still love the "let's see where we wake up tomorrow" approach. RV'ing has given us the best of all worlds. We sincerely hope it can do the same for you.

We often get questions about what we are doing now. Well, Alicia and I went to Flordia for a few months and enrolled in the Bob Ross Art Instructor training program. We are now certified to teach the Bob Ross Joy of Painting® technique. If you get bored and just need something to do, take a look at our Bob Ross style oil paintings. Since I am not much of a teacher, Alicia does all the teaching and I squirt out the paint and fetch coffee. I spend some of my time maintaining the few websites I have built over the years, and have begun focusing on writing fiction.

We decided to see if we wanted to settle down and bought a small mobile home in Springfield, Missouri, but after an alarmingly short time, it turned out that vagabonding is permanently in our blood so we sold the mobile home and now  home is once again where we park it.
