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...

A New Year of Opportunity

Posted 1/1/2014

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fantastic time whether out partying or snuggled up at home!

We spent the evening confined to the driveway as our heating system, battery charger and fridge have all been playing up so we need to be on 240v power for the time being. Never mind, it’s been nice to be close to family.

So in 2013 we built the kitchen and luggage cupboards, installed the snake tank and living room storage, finished the shower room, painted the body white & welded & painted the cab, replaced the rear suspension, got married, toured Scotland, AND bought a website domain alongside our daily work. Phew! We have so little planned for 2014 it’s hard to think what we are going to do with all of the free time, but in reality I know it will likely be our busiest year yet!

I have one resolution for myself, to focus on one job at a time. I tend to try to take on the world at once and then wonder why I end up breaking down somewhere along the line, and that isn’t a healthy way to live for body or spirit so needs remedying. Living in Waki has already begun to change how I organise my life so I’m looking forward to what else this year can teach me.

We still have things to finish off inside Waki (more storage solutions and finishing painting etc) but also have a few exiting projects to start on too. We still need a wood burning stove and so will be embarking on a DIY project involving an old gas cylinder (with all the appropriate safety precautions don’t worry!) and the exterior paintwork needs properly doing when the weather warms up. Also hopefully, if the budget allows, we should be able to install some solar panels for some fine-weather free power.

On the touring front we shall pop over to the Isle of Man for the TT month, something Ryan has longed to do for many years now, and we’ve agreed we’d like to spend next Christmas on the road somewhere to change things up a little. 

So watch this space for what I'm sure will be another year of surprises from The Waki Way, and I hope that your year brings everything you need to be happy, to learn and to have fun!

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>>
