Roads from the Ashes: An Odyssey in Real Life on the Virtual Frontier, by Megan Edwards

If you're at one of life's transition points and thinking about making a go of life on a roll, this book offers a vivid and entertaining look inside one couple's experiences. For many people, making the decision to "hit the road" comes at a transitional phase in life: a divorce, a health challenge, retirement. For Edwards and her husband Mark Sedenquist (RoadTrip America's founders), the transition arrived in the form of a wildfire that consumed their house and all their possessions. Seizing the "opportunity" to follow their dreams led the pair on a journey all over America as well as on an inspiring odyssey into new careers. If you're still in the "thinking about it" stage, this book is a must-read.
Take Back Your Life!
Take Back Your Life: Travel Full-Time In An RV, by Stephanie Bernhagen

This book belongs in the permanent collection of every wanderer or dashboader. Stephanie and her husband Paul have been full-timers since 1994. As an example of the extremly useful detail this book includes, the analyses in Chapter 8 examine many common loading errors. If this book had been available six years ago, we might have avoided some of the Phoenix One's chassis problems and saved thousands of dollars.In addition to practical information, Take Back Your Life is one of the best books we've ever seen about full-timing, offering glimpses into the experiences of real people living their own dreams of life on wheels. Whether you're a novice or an experienced road warrior, this is one book you should not be without!

Best of all, however, is that Movin' On is a good, down-to-earth read from cover to cover. Anyone with the slightest desire to join the burgeoning ranks of fulltime RVers is sure to find this book impossible to put down.
