RiverCat Journal: Full-Timer at Last!

Camp:  Redding, Ca     Sacramento River RV Park It’s 11:07 pm and I’m enjoying the strange sound of raindrops on my roof.  I love it!  Having lived in the high desert the past four years, I found myself wishing for rain at my first campground of This Journey.  Wish granted!  Here’s how The Ultimate Journey began… … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: Fake it Til Ya Make It

I’m surrendering a little more.  It’s time to let the pieces fall into place rather than force the issue.  I cannot continue to exhaust myself… If I find Jeepers a home, great.  If I produce a small income off my poker blog, terrific.  If I get the improvements on my rig finished, fabulous. I believe … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: Return from Vegas

I returned from Vegas on Sunday.  I wish I could say I earned enough playing poker to provide  a “cushion” in my upcoming RV adventure.  Quite the contrary.  While I did get off to a nice start, the devastating run that followed forced me to make some tough bankroll decisions.  In a nutshell, if I … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: Waiting for the Dust to Settle

In my last post, I talked about surrendering a bit.  Now with only 10 days until my Vegas Adventure and not really knowing “what’s what” until I get back, I’m doing my best to lighten my workload rather than try to push forward. I’m going to the gym a couple extra times per week, working … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: My Home

When I initially made the decision to buy a 1981 travel traler, I wasn’t certain I was ever going to take it on the road.  I just figured I’d learn the in’s and out’s of RV life — and it’d pay for itself over the course of two years in the money I’d save on … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: So, it’s Complicated, But Here’s the Plan…

I don’t know if I can actually illustrate how mind-bending this puzzle of when and how I’m going to make this happen.  It’s really, really complicated… Due to ever-changing events and situations,  and the many many aspects of my life that need to be stabilized — my timelines and plans have changed drastically, seemingly every … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: Jeepers! My Toughest Decision

Jeepers adopted me during my first Journey.  It was in Bullhead City, Arizona. I’d left the door my room ajar to visit the pool for a moment and, when I came back, this scrawny little blue-gray cat was ripping into a loaf of bread. Apparently the pickins’ are sparse along the banks of the Colorado … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: Making a Living on the Road

So with no substantial savings or pension, what will I do for work? I don’t know. My original plan:  Write my memoirs about adventures playing poker for 10 years, design a website, and make the bulk of my income off the banner ads.  When a player signed up through me at one of the playing … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: Grinding it out in Reno

Reno, Nevada. When I decided on dealing poker here in Reno, I actually had the option of dealing at a renowned room in Las Vegas.  However, there I would be part-time, working unpredictable schedules, with no benefits.  Also, needing to take somewhat of a sabbatical from playing poker regularly so I could finish my poker … Continue reading »

RiverCat Journal: The Maiden Voyage

I had owned my rig for two years before I took it on it’s first and only trip.  The 80-mile voyage would be a weekend trip north on 395 to Susanville, California.  I’d been there a couple times.  There’s not a whole lot in Susanville — a prison, a couple bars, a bike trail, and … Continue reading »
