Our New Home

After trimming all the trees, and backing up the new camper for the hundredth time, we were finally able to unhook, level, and pull down the steps. As we put out the awning and slides, I realized just how ridiculous this camper was. After making the decision of our year long adventure, we quickly realized that our current Keystone Outback 312BHQ travel trailer would...

OBX

During the months following up to spring break, we decided to do a long trip and stay for a week in the Outer Banks, NC. If we could survive a week, perhaps we could survive a month on the road this summer. Easy peasy. Right? Well… a week in a camper makes you realize just how small your space is.

Our wise neighbors had...

I thought it would be fun to tent camp, since we own a tent...

About Us

We are naturally nomadic, moving every couple of years, and it’s taken me until recently to come to terms with this. I have felt like we needed to grow roots in one place and call it home until we died. After a few years, we get that urge, and we are feeling very restless! Instead of moving our family and selling our house, we have decided to take a different route...
