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 […]

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 […]

National Park Road Trip – and visitors from Germany!

In August, Blake’s friend Toby and his girlfriend, Annika, wanted to visit us from Germany. They knew we were living on the road, so we planned a road trip with them. We started in Denver and they said they wanted to visit Yellowstone and Seattle, which meant a 1300+ mile road trip. Before you wonder how the heck we slept […]

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, […]

Our First Setup: 1996 Elkhorn and 2001 F250

The first question was whether we would do this year long trip in the camper we bought last summer, even with the leak and the number of issues prevalent with a 20 year old camper, or if we needed to upgrade to a nicer camper. The decision was easy for us. We had no reason to want to purchase a […]

The Prep to Start Full-Timing

We move into the camper in one week. Our lease is ending, so that makes September 1st a firm start date for our new lifestyle.  That means we have to have everything out of our rental house, packed into our camper, and ideally, our camper and truck functioning, driveable, and safe. Over the past 10 months, we’ve been making endless […]

Our Story

We’re Blake and Rachel, adventure couple, and about to become traveling filmmakers. We’re getting ready to move into our 1996 truck bed camper on our 2001 F250 truck with the goal of traveling North America full time for the next year, and filming along the way. Here’s the short story: We met 7 years ago in our home town of […]
