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 […]

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 […]

125 hours in Bolivia

  In June we got the opportunity to travel with Bridges to Prosperity, a Denver non-profit, to Bolivia, to help document their new Challwiri foot bridge for their 2019 year end campaign. Bridges to Prosperity works with local communities to help eliminate rural isolation by building footbridges to provide access to essential things such as education, health care and economic […]

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. […]

Colorado to Arizona

Fall was still in full bloom and what we thought we missed while out of state was still waiting for us. We drove past completely changing landscapes though. On one side of Wolf Creek Pass we saw all yellow aspens, and then on the other side of the pass, the ski resort had actually opened (first in the country) that […]

Headed South: Austin, TX, Tulum, MX and Miami, FL

A couple weeks ago, Blake and I left the camper and flew south for a few film projects. Luckily there is oversize parking at Denver International Airport. It feels strange to only have been in the camper for 3 weeks, and then leave for a 2 week trip where we will be flying and living out of suitcases, but we […]

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 […]
