Our life on the road

Since 2020 we’ve been living and traveling full-time in a 21′ Desert Fox toy hauler. These are stories from our everyday life on the road.

Notes from the road: April ’24


Welcome to Notes From The Road, a monthly recap of where we’ve been, what we’ve been up to, and the things we’ve enjoyed over the last 30 days. April began at an idyllic campsite in Arizona and is ending at our property on Colorado’s Western Slope.  It’s been a month filled with many of the unique ups and downs that come with full-time RV travel.  We hope you enjoy this recap of the highs and...

A day in the life: run off by rattlesnakes


After six weeks camping in Arizona, it felt good to cross the border into Utah.  Utah is an incredible state, diverse in landscape, with an immense amount of free camping opportunities.  We decided to return to a spot near the small, remote town of Bluff that we’ve previously enjoyed.  Nearby Comb Ridge is one of our favorite geological features in the west and we were hoping to stay a week...

A day in the life: why we plan our travel days conservatively


Earlier this week we reached the 14 day limit (stipulated by the rules of the national forest) at the spot we were camped in.  We had no intention of staying that long but the weather could not have been more perfect.  The spot was gorgeous and peaceful, and the nearby hiking trails offered some fantastic swimming and hiking opportunities.  It was a great stay. The beautiful view...

A day in the life: relocating from Wickenburg to Wickenburg


I woke up yesterday morning with a singular goal, get outside.  The forecast was calling for 40mph winds beginning at noon, followed by overcast skies, cool temps, and on and off rain for the next three days.  This meant all the doors and windows of our RV would not be open for several days and so getting outside and soaking up the sun was imperative. I hiked a few miles around camp...

Notes from the road: March ’24


Welcome to Notes From The Road, a monthly recap of where we’ve been and what we’ve been up to. March began in a small town in Mexico, where we waited two days for fuel to be delivered to the local gas station, and is now ending in central Arizona, where we’re waiting for temps to rise in Colorado before returning to our property for the spring.  After arriving back in the States...

2022: The highlights


2022 was a great year full of several wonderful and memorable experiences.  I feel like we really hit our stride with living on the road full-time.  Our business really seemed to hit it’s stride as well after a 2 year long overhaul of its identity and mission.  We kicked off the year with our first ever Baja California road trip and on December 30th were back in Mexico for a second winter...

Where we’ve been, where we’re headed, and why we’re back!


Hello hello hello! It has been a while, I know. We last left you in May 2020 when we decided to sell our house in Idaho, as well as our plane, so that we could buy an RV, and return to full-time RV living. I’m happy to report that life on the road has been treating us extremely well since then. If you’ve been following our journey over the years, you know that we’ve had several...

Our summer working & RV-ing around Colorado


It feels like a big statement to say that this was the best summer of my life…but I think it might have been. We make a living photographing destination weddings throughout the Colorado Rockies. In summers past, we would photograph 1-2 weddings every weekend for 18 weekends straight. During the week we would edit and manage the business. We never saw our friends, we very rarely went camping, and...

7 weeks getting to know our property


It was mid-April when we made our way back to our property. We hadn’t been since late October when we closed escrow and spent two quick celebratory weeks before migrating south for the winter. We were eager to get back, to get to know the area and the property itself more, and to see if this place would be everything we hoped it would be. Spoiler alert: It was. What we were hoping for was a...

Six weeks in the Verde Valley


A few years ago, I never could have imagined us camping in the same area for six weeks.  Our house has wheels so that we can move.  Why would we stay put for a month and a half?  I think it has to do with a lack of urgency.  When we owned a house and went on trips in our truck camper, there was always an end date.  Whether the trip was a week long or a month long, there...


We’re Mark & Michele, modern-day nomads perfecting the art of slow, full-time travel.  Our tiny home on wheels and slow-paced travel style allows us to minimize our expenses while maximizing our freedom.  May our unconventional way of life inspire you to design a life that you love.
