2022: The highlights

2

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...

Baja here we come!

After a lot of shuffling, we are finally ready for the road trip of a lifetime. We’ve temporarily moved out of our larger trailer and in to our more robust and off-road capable utility trailer, and tomorrow cross the border for five weeks in Mexico!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have dreamt of a Baja road trip for longer than I can remember. Tomorrow, when we cross, I will probably be the most nervous...

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...

We bought land!

W

We’ve dreamt of owning a piece of property for years. Tiny homes and off-grid living have always appealed to us far more than living in a conventional house. Our trajectory in life over the last decade kept affirming that idea and this past summer was when we were finally ready to start seriously shopping for property. After a few months, we’d left our footprints on a few dozen...

Embracing change & deciding to return to full-time RV living

E

The last two months have brought to light the non-essential nature of our careers.  In March, as COVID began to tighten it’s grip on the US, the need for what we do (Mark, a flight instructor and me, a wedding photographer) came to a screeching halt.  Most of April turned in to an unsettling game of “wait and see”.  We stayed home, going out only for groceries and walks.  At any given time in...

The whirlwind that has been 2019

T

This year.  Wow.  It’s been unlike any other. For the first time in 15 years Mark & I’s professional lives diverged and we spent more time apart than we ever have before.  While I spent a lot of my time on commercial airliners, traveling for work, Mark spent most of his in a Kitfox, flying around the Idaho backcountry teaching others the art of being a tailwheel pilot. This month...

This is why we moved to Idaho

T

You can thank my mom for this post.  She’s reminded me that just because we’re not living on the road anymore doesn’t mean I should stop posting : ) We’ve lived in Idaho for a little over two months now.  Last week we sold the Casita and if I’m being honest, I wasn’t sad to see it go.  It served the exact purpose we bought it for.  To have a comfortable means...

A little story about taking chances, pursuing dreams and moving to Idaho

A

Yes, you read that right.  We are moving to Idaho!  I’m excited to share this story with you but I thought I’d jump straight to the point so you can decide if you want to stick around for what may be the longest post I’ve ever written.  It may be long, but I promise…it’s a good story. April entailed bringing a dream to fruition after a long, hard year of soul-searching.  The start of...

Why We Camp

W

Lately I’ve become increasingly attached to my phone.  Something that’s hard to admit because: 1) I don’t want to believe that to be true 2) it’s such a slippery slope, it’s hard to step outside yourself and realize you’re doing it 3) it’s so easy to justify it as a tool that it’s difficult to admit to it being anything else. But it’s started to feel like an addiction lately.  The more I use it...

How we strive for simplicity

H

Last month we were in Los Angeles visiting family when my cousin asked us “How do you live such a simple life?”.  I stirred on that question for a week and came to the conclusion that there’s no simple answer.  We all have the ability to simplify or complicate our lives and for years now Mark & I have made thoughtful choices in an effort to live the life we desire.  The more...
