Cold-weather camping in our Four Wheel Camper

We're officially out of our house but not driving off into the sunset...at least not yet!  This month we're finishing up some jobs in Colorado before heading South for the winter.  Before this month even began, I knew it would be an adventure given how volatile the...

Our last day as homeowners!

Today is our last day in our house.  We're one day away from setting off on our new life on the road.  Our head’s our full with our endless to-do lists.  Between keeping on top of our business during it’s busiest season and packing up our house, there’s hardly been a...

Why we bought a Casita Travel Trailer

  Back in 2013 we made our first attempt to live on the road full-time.  Thinking we needed as much room as possible to fit our house in to an RV, we bought a 30' long travel trailer and the very thing we bought to live in turned out to be the very thing that...

We’re finally doing it!

Our trip to Idaho a few weeks ago was a failed house hunting mission. We'd been planning a move since Mark was offered a dream aviation job. But our wild, mountain spirits couldn't find anywhere we wanted to settle in the dry, agricultural valley where we would need...

What is dispersed camping, dry camping and boondocking?

There are various terms that are common in the RVing and camping community that we’d never heard of before we got our truck camper.  Today I thought I’d talk about a few of those terms that describe how or where you’re camped.  If you’re new to camping, whether it be...

Take a glimpse at the Four Wheel Camper lifestyle

In April we traveled 6,000 miles and camped in 7 states living out of our Four Wheel Camper.  Those 30 days were just another 30 reasons why I hope to one day live on the road full-time.  Everyday somewhere new...a new view, a new challenge, a new experience.  I...

An Airplane Update: One Year Later

It's been one year since we bought our airplane and a lot has happened since then!  Mark spent the summer refurbishing the motor since it had been sitting for 10 years and did not run when we bought it.  On the last day of September it was flight-worthy and he flew it...

We’re headed to NV & ID and want your suggestions!

Hey everybody!  We're planning a trip for later this month to some new territory that we don't know much about.  We'll be traveling the length of NV from Vegas up to Boise.  After a few days in Boise we'll be making our way to IA.  We don't have any set route and...

40 days in our Four Wheel Camper: Burr Trail, UT

Ever since driving thru Long Canyon in 2012 I’d wanted to camp there.  I was excited to be heading back but nervous about finding a spot as I remember there not being many.  Our day started off driving thru Capital Reef National Park via hwy 24.  We drove thru...

40 Days in our Four Wheel Camper: Caineville, Utah

From Moab we headed towards Capital Reef National Park and one of our favorite BLM camping spots that we’d previously found a few years back.  This particular area of Utah (around Hanksville/Caineville) is one of the most quiet, untouched, undeveloped areas we’ve ever...
