New Old Truck!

We left Utah in May 2020 when we got a few real estate film projects in Colorado, and went to go see family afterwards since we were so close to Denver. Blake and his brother and a couple of their friends are always casually looking on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace for new trucks, and Blake found one that he thought […]

7 Tips for Cooking in a Truck Camper

Obviously we don’t have a lot of space in our truck camper, but our kitchen does consist of a three burner stove, small propane oven, sink, and microwave, which we can run on our Battleborn batteries. We’re rarely in a sport for more than 4 days at a time, and often we drive everyday, so nothing gets left out on […]

6 Ways we Stay Organized Living in a Truck Bed Camper

Crates: Put everything in crates to avoid any loose items and make sure everything has a place. When you have limited storage, everything needs to have a place, or else things get messy fast. And this way, everything is waterproof in case you ever had any leaks.  “Garage” Storage: The camper has one outdoor storage area, and the truck has […]

The secret to Free Dumps!

Blake’s family says that everyone has a shit story. Somebody forgot to put the cap back on, maybe the lines froze with shit inside, maybe the guy next to you in the dump station didn’t know what he was doing and aimed the wrong way, etc. Ours was when we learned that the shower in our original camper (1996 Elkhorn) […]

Rail Carrier Improvements

We started with a Rage Powersports Double Dirt Bike Carrier and extended it with a Curt 34″ 2-1/2′ to 2″ Trailer Hitch Adapter so it fits under our overhang. We welded and gusseted the extension to raise it up a foot and add a step for climbing into the camper.  The extension is bolted and removable from the rest of […]

NEW CAMPER!

The process of switching to the new camper was a much longer process than we expected and we ended up staying in Denver for about 2 and a half months (also due to staying pretty busy with work during those months). We spent the next week taking everything out of the old camper, (storing most of it on Clinton’s lawn […]

Baja Adventures 4: Bahia de Concepcion, Ojo de Liebre, Bahia de Los Angeles, and San Felipe

When we were finally able to leave Loreto, we drove an hour north to the Bahia de Concepcion. This is a beautiful finger of water on the Sea of Cortez side that we had noted on our drive south back in December. It was full of little inlets of water that looked super calm and blue, and we couldn’t wait […]

Two months on the road

Our first two months on the road have been full of adventure. Not necessarily the adventures we were planning, but still have taken us across the map, and taught us a lot about the lifestyle we are living. Originally our plan was to spend the fall in southern Colorado, then make our way through some Utah and Arizona national parks. […]

First Week as Nomads

Our first week has been a little hectic. We moved into the camper August 31st, but we didn’t actually leave Denver for a week as we finished up some repairs, figured out some logistics, and tied up loose ends. We finally got new tires on our truck, but it took two tries, after the shop mounted the wrong size tires […]

Final Moving Days

We got out of our rental house mid-day on August 31st. We moved everything we want to bring with us into the camper, and everything else is going to my parents garage. Our final moving days were a bit more stressful than planned. We ran out of time to do a lot of the projects that needed to get done, […]
