Full-time RV Travel

Our path to full-time RV travel was far from straightforward. We’ve tried part-time and full-time travel with various rigs since 2012. It’s now been four years since we last lived in a house and we can’t imagine going back. Here we share a candid account of what it’s like to travel full-time.

Our first ever travel book is available for purchase!

We are so excited to share the news that our first-ever travel book, What A Day: A Baja California Travel Journal, is now available for purchase.  If you’re a long-time reader around here you’re likely familiar with our Baja stories.  What A Day is a compilation of those stories…daily accounts of what life is life exploring Mexico’s Baja California peninsula in a truck camper...

Full-time Truck Camper living with Josh, Darci & Hannah

F

Last year, as luck would have it, Mark and I pulled into a little ranch in Baja and found ourselves camped right alongside fellow Four Wheel Camper owners. Little did we know, Josh, Darci and their three year old daughter Hannah would become fast friends. After spending three nights camped beside one another, and quickly connecting over similar interests, we parted ways but remained in touch via...

Notes from the road: June ’24

N

Welcome to Notes From The Road, a monthly recap of where we’ve been, what we’ve been up to, and things we’ve enjoyed over the last 30 days. We hope you enjoy it. June began for us on our property in Western Colorado where we came down off the high of spending 3 weeks traveling to Alaska and began preparing for wedding season.  This June marks our 20th year as wedding photographers, a job...

A recap of our 4,000 mile drive to and around Alaska

A

As many of you already know, we spent the second half of May driving to, and camping around, the magnificent state of Alaska.  This trip was unique for us in that we left our truck camper behind and instead drove a friend’s truck as we were helping them make the move from Idaho to Alaska.  For us, this was a bucket list kind of trip.  And of course, we now dream of the day we can...

Driving to Alaska Day 18: An epic ending

D

Welcome to the last post in our Driving to Alaska series! We hope you’ve enjoyed the stories from this unforgettable 4,000 mile road trip. While our sleeping quarters proved to be more comfortable than I’d predicted, it felt good to be climbing out from the bed of a truck for the last time.  I was delighted that I managed to get in and out for 18 straight days without breaking a...

Driving to Alaska Day 17: Talkeetna

D

Welcome to post 17 of 18 in our Driving to Alaska series. We hope you enjoy the stories from this unforgettable 4,000 mile road trip. When the morning began, yet again, in a wet and gloomy fashion, I began to wonder just how often the sun actually reaches the ground in Alaska.  The weather here, that was becoming quite familiar, was nothing like the sunny skies of Colorado that I was used to...

Driving to Alaska Day 16: Denali State Park

D

Welcome to post 16 of 18 in our Driving to Alaska Series. We hope you enjoy the stories from this unforgettable 4,000 mile road trip. // It was a cold, windy night and the morning was met with another thick layer of grey clouds.  We woke and set off in search of either better weather or a cafe where we could thaw out.  The nearest cafe was closed so we did what we’ve done every morning...

Driving to Alaska Day 15: The day the driving fatigue set in

D

Welcome to post 15 of 18 in our Driving to Alaska series. We hope you enjoy the stories from this unforgettable 4,000 mile road trip. The morning began in a far less glamorous way than the previous night ended.  After our two hour long sunset safari, we pulled onto a wide stretch of shoulder and promptly passed out at 1:00am.  When we woke, a group of people had parked next to us and were...

Driving to Alaska Day 14: Denali Highway

D

Welcome to post 14 of 18 in our Driving to Alaska series. We hope you enjoy the stories from this unforgettable 4,000 mile road trip. // It rained most of the night but luckily ceased by the time we got up. The only thing we can do inside of the truck we’ve been loaned is sleep.  Cooking, eating, getting dressed, going to the bathroom…it all happens outside; so rain makes all of those tasks a bit...

Driving to Alaska Day 13: McCarthy & Kennecott Mine

D

Welcome to post 13 of 18 in our Driving to Alaska series. We hope you enjoy the stories from this unforgettable 4,000 mile road trip. In a half-awake state we both crawled out of the truck bed with full bladders and were met with a scene so perfectly picturesque that we may as well have been dreaming.  The stillness of the lake allowed for a flawless mirror reflection of the mountains and pines. ...
