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

40 Days in our Four Wheel Camper: Moab, UT

We're half way thru our trip already!  We're still in Utah soaking up the last of this beautiful fall weather and while we haven't had great cell signal, I've still been making little videos of our trip along the way.  Our second stop of the trip was in Moab.  Moving...

40 days in our Four Wheel Camper: McInnis Canyons, CO

Whenever we take off in our truck camper, weather it be for 2 weeks or 2 months, we tend to cover a lot of ground.  In other words, we spend A LOT of time driving.  You can only do that for so long before you realize, you can never see it all.  I always have a running...

Road Trippin’ Day 1: getting our groove back

Yesterday was a VERY good day.  It was the first day of our annual winter road trip.  Since last year's trip had to be cancelled due to health issues and this summer was the busiest our business has ever had, we could not be happier to be back on the road!  It felt...
