Oregon: Bend & Mt. Hood

  Bend, Oregon:  Well we picked a fantastic time to head to Bend, Oregon, right in the middle of the July PNW heat wave. Record temps of up to 115 were forecasted in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. Bend was only supposed to get to 108. As we left California, we drove all the way to Klamath Falls because we needed […]

Spring Cleaning

We came back to Denver for part of May to scout for and shoot a commercial for Sena Technologies, and then stayed to see family for a few days. While in Denver, we took the camper off of the truck, TWICE in a week. Which seems like more than we normally take it off in a year. We hadn’t even […]

7 Ways we Figure Out Where to Sleep Each Night (When Passing through Big Cities)

Our perfect camp spot is some secluded spot, nestled between some pine trees, or maybe in a red rocky desert in Utah, or even camped on a beach in Baja. But the perfect camp spot often requires a bit of effort to drive there, perfect timing to get there before anyone else, and planning out our food, water and battery […]

Our Top 5 Favorite Camp Spots from Two Years on the Road!

We both grew up camping in Colorado, Blake more-so than me since he’s an Eagle Scout. We’ve camped in negative degree weather, we’ve both slept in snow caves, and we continue to have camping family reunions every year. I could list a hundred of our favorite places to camp in Colorado and Moab, but this list is going to only […]

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 […]

How we Get Packages while Living on the Road!

This is one of the trickier things about living on the road. Both of our permanent addresses are back in Denver at Blake’s moms house. She receives our mail and we return to Denver frequently enough that she rarely has to forward on our mail.   We move so frequently that we are constantly waiting to order packages until we […]

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) […]

Camper Quarantining in Utah: Escalante, St. George, and Lake Powell

  St. George: We spent the entire month of April in Utah, where COVID really didn’t seem to be as much of an issue. St. George seemed to still be operating business as usual, with fewer mask requirements, because the virus just really wasn’t as big of a deal in these rural areas. The small towns were pretty much shut […]

Quarantine vs RV Life

This quarantine has been weird for everyone. I think that a lot of people are going to come away from this pretty scarred and scared of social interactions, and maybe even with weakened immune systems from sitting at home for two months. Quarantine for us hasn’t really been that different. We’ve been living in a box now for a year [...]
