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 […]

R’Idaho!

Blake’s been dreaming of completing the R’Idaho Grit 3 for years, a 600 mile point to point dirt bike ride through the Sawtooths, mostly singletrack, and decided to organize the trip for him and 5 other riders to complete in August 2020. There’s actually a bit of a cult following surrounding the R’Idaho Grit routes, and there’s die hard fans […]

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) […]

Our First Mini Boat River Trip

In July we joined our mini boat friends Dan and Shannon, and their friend Dave, for a two night camp trip off the boats on the Colorado River through Canyonlands. We started at the Potash plant outside of Moab, and over a three day period, drove the boats 50 miles downriver to the Green River Confluence, and a few extra […]

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 [...]

Recreating outside of Vegas: Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead and Lake Mojave

  In end of February, we were headed to Las Vegas for a job, so we decided to see what there was to explore in the area. Red Rock Canyon: Within 30 minutes of downtown Las Vegas, and its a national conservation area, so our America the Beautiful pass covers the entrance fee. The area is a 13 mile one-way […]

October/November: Crater Lake and Cerro Gordo

After Canada, we made the drive back to LA for a few jobs. It worked out extremely well that we weren’t as busy with jobs during August and September when we had several friends visit and spent two weeks in British Columbia. But after all that play time up north, we were bound to get called back to LA for […]

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 […]

British Columbia

We crossed the border into Canada and headed into Vancouver, even though it was completely pouring the entire time. Since we had done a lot of hiking lately (during our week in Glacier), Blake had an extensive list of places he wanted to check out for dirt biking across BC. Unfortunately, since it rained for two weeks straight, we didn’t […]
