Fall River Trip 2021

The beginning of fall marked the end of jet boat season. Upon our return to Colorado in September we knew we would be leaving our boat in storage mid October and heading into desert season without a 20 foot long trailer, back to a shorter footprint, just us, the rig and the bikes. So we convinced our jet boat friends […]

Idaho Summer of 2021

We spent the entire summer of 2021 in Idaho. We didn’t have a lot of work lined up for this summer, as big film shoots were still canceled with COVID, and we honestly just didn’t seek out a lot of work so that we could actually enjoy our summer and get to experience a new place fully. We had a […]

St. George Family Trip!

Blake’s family came to visit us in St. George for a week of camping and riding in the Sand Mountain OHV area in the end of April. We headed into St. George from Kanab to restock the rig and get a head start on finding a good camp spot since we’d be staying for 6 nights in one spot. We […]

Cactus Touring: Anza Borrego, Yuma, Organ Pipe, and Quartzite, Arizona

After a change in previous plans, we had to figure out where to spend the month of January, and ended up flocking to all the popular spots for full-time RVers (“snowbirds”) that spend their winter in these warm southern areas. CALIFORNIA:  Joshua Tree Joshua Tree National Park and the BLM land at its south entrance is a mecca for RVers […]

Our Top 5 Scenic Drives from Two Years on the Road!

We’ve done A LOT of driving in our two years on the road. Like almost 45,000 miles. We’ve seen a lot of really neat places. Most of the time we have to take the most direct route if we’re headed to a film shoot, but sometimes we have time to take the long way somewhere, and sometimes if we’re just […]

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 […]

Utah Fall Destinations: Bryce, Zion, Cedar Breaks and Lake Powell

  Blanche Lake: We spent most of September in Utah. Before leaving the Salt Lake area, we hiked Blanche Lake.  6.5 miles with 2,700 feet elevation gain. The elevation gain felt more gradual than I expected and was surprised that we did the hike pretty quick. I didn’t know that the fall colors in Salt Lake and Ogden are so […]

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 […]
