I've been busting to share this, because we found a game changer for how we work in our camper! Well, Adam's had this figured out for awhile. I'm late to the party and it's a good one!
When we transitioned to living and working in the camper, Adam set himself up with a stand up desk and a Roost Stand to protect his posture by bringing the computer to eye level.
I didn't think this was important until I saw a video of me working.
I'm a hunchback on my computer!
You can look- the moment's only 11 seconds in.
I couldn't believe what I looked like in the video!
I freaked! I don't want to be a hunchback at 30!
Adam's always told me my posture is terrible. However, he'd tell me when I was super focused on a project. I'd sit up straight for a minute then get engrossed in the project again resuming hunchback position.
After seeing the video- I was converted!
I bought myself a Roost Stand on the spot. That's the fastest $70 I've ever spent! Knowing us, you know we'll debate and research days over spending $3 on a taco.
Now, we both use Roost stands, but have had to make adjustments.
Be warned! We're a sight when we both post up with our Roost stands at coffee shops. We get a lot of curious looks. The stand's have proved to be the best conversation starter to meet locals in a new spot!
Our Different Gear Setup for Working
I do a lot of writing and editing pictures as a photographer. To make using the Roost Stand comfortable, I needed to get two more things:
- Wireless mouse. Found this at Walmart for $10.
- Wireless keyboard. I snagged one for $15 at Staples.
For less than $100 I got myself un-hunched! I gotta prioritize my back and neck!

We have to duplicate coverage by having both AT&T and Verizon service on the road.
Our main source: Verizon's MiFi Hotspot. We get 12GB for $90 per month.
For backup when there's no Verizon signal, we use our AT&T phones as hot spots.
To boost our service, we just got a wifi booster. We had trouble finding any signal in Florida and had to re-route ourselves. Hopefully this will help.
