Heading South with stops at James M. Robb & Green River State Parks

Heading South with stops at James M. Robb & Green River State Parks

The house was sold, our contracted jobs for the year were done and on November 5th it was finally time to hit the road.  Of course there was a Winter Weather Advisory that day to add a little bit of fun to our attempt at getting out of Colorado.  In an effort to avoid...

Our first month without a house (but not on the road just yet)

Our first month without a house (but not on the road just yet)

The last five weeks have been a whirlwind.  At the end of September we packed up all our worldly possessions and said goodbye to our home for the last 7 years.  It felt good, the time was right to move on and do something different but preparing to set off for a life...

Downsizing from a house to full-time RV living: a few tips

Downsizing from a 1600 square foot house to 200 square feet of RV space is no easy feat.  And there's nothing more affective at making you face the reality of what material items in your life are truly important.  This process proved to be so much different than a...

Cold-weather camping in our Four Wheel Camper

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!

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

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!

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...

2017 Solar Eclipse: What it was like experiencing totality in Wyoming

2017 Solar Eclipse: What it was like experiencing totality in Wyoming

(written yesterday, August 21, 2017) A few months ago Mark mentioned interest in driving to Wyoming to see the eclipse.  I’m a little embarrassed to admit this now but I wasn’t sure how much difference it would make to drive twelve hours round-trip to see 100% of the...

What is dispersed camping, dry camping and boondocking?

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...

Content worth sharing: Jedidiah Jenkins 7,000 mile bike ride

We all know how easy it is to get caught up in the mass of junk that consumes the internet these days.  I spend more time than I'd like to admit going down a YouTube rabbit hole.  But every now and then I come across a video or an article or a website that captivates...

Take a glimpse at the Four Wheel Camper lifestyle

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...
