The simple life isn't so simple, as it turns out...not at first, at least. It's refreshing to be told Collins' story firsthand and understanding the undercurrent that eventually resulted in a complete change of life. He doesn't quibble in laying mistakes he's made out on the table (or in other places that may or may not involve human fecal matter and a sewage hose), and in doing so he gives the rest of us hope. It will take a moment or two to grow accustomed to his writing style,but it quickly becomes friendly and engaging. It reads like a series of blog posts: informative, oftentimes funny, and with a ring of familiarity toward the reader and the subject matter. The Simple Life Guide To RV Living is an excellent resource for people who are tired of the everyday grind of urban living, but frankly, I'd recommend it even to people who are thinking of buying an RV for the weekends. - Reviewed By Jamie Michele for Readers' Favorite
About the Author
Gary was raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a rural part of California. He now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State, and the other part of year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.
He enjoyed, and considers himself lucky to have grown up in a very small town experiencing fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors from a very young age. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is also an active follower and teacher of what he calls "life simplification." He often says:
"Today we're bombarded by too much stress, not enough time for personal fulfillment, and failing to take care of our health... there has to be a better way!"
In addition to being a best selling author, he has taught at the University College level, consulted and trained college level athletes, and been interviewed for his expertise on various subjects by CBS Sports, Coast to Coast AM, The RT Network, and FOX News to name a few.
His website thesimplelifenow.com, and The Simple Life book series (his total lifestyle reboot), blows the lid off of conventional life and wellness expectations, and is considered essential for every person seeking a simpler, and happier life.
