We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Kaa the well travelled Corn SnakeKaa the well travelled Corn SnakeAbout Us: Meet Kaa the corn snake

Lots of people travel with their pets but I'm sure not many of them would bring along a pet snake!

I’d like to introduce Kaa, now dubbed 'the well travelled Corn Snake', a charming and quite oblivious passenger to The Waki Way of life. He is a Californian phase approx. 13 years old, (named after the Jungle Book character) and around 5ft in length - he's a bit tricky to measure exactly! He’s cute and very friendly, loves attention and exploring - and yes of course reptiles can be cute, look at him!

The character Kaa in Disney's The Jungle Book, using his hypnotic eyesThe character Kaa in Disney's The Jungle Book, using his hypnotic eyesKaa lives in a vivarium in the living room area of Waki the motor home which has nice deep bedding to burrow in, and also plenty of logs and sticks to climb on or hide under. He also likes to take the occasional spa break in his water bowl and play peek-a-boo with us through the grasses.  
I was a little worried at first of how a reptile would take to life on the road with all of the vibrations of driving, but thankfully he has shown no signs of stress so far and maintained his normal laid-back, friendly attitude and good appetite. We let him get acclimatised to his new vivarium in the house for a couple of months while we finished the build, then moved him finally into place in Waki. When we drive the vibrations do wake him up of course, and he'll usually slowly cruise around the viv before settling down somewhere as he would do if we were parked. 
Kaa has been a bit of an ambassador for snakes throughout his life and converted many ‘haters’ to admirers with his charm and hypnotising ways and I'm sure he will continue to do so on our travels. He regularly features on Facebook so remember to follow The Waki Way on Facebook to see more of him!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
