Our new travel style: living life two weeks at a time


Yesterday we concluded our 14 day stay outside of Hurricane, Utah.  We moved 2 hours south to Lake Mead, Nevada where we plan to once again take advantage of the maximum allowed stay of 14 days.   This is our third time living on the road full-time since 2013.  Each time with a different truck/trailer combo and each time with a different style of travel.  And if there’s...

Hiking The Subway: Zion National Park

subway hiking trail

During our stay in Hurricane, Utah some friends invited us to hike The Subway in Zion National Park.  We only knew two things about The Subway: 1) it’s one of Zion’s most popular hikes 2) a permit is required and can be very hard to get.  Our friends said if we wanted to go, this was the time to do it as permits are far easier to come by in November than the Spring, Summer and Fall. ...

12 days camping outside Hurricane, UT


Last year while driving thru Utah we blew our transmission.  A very long and expensive weekend from which we learned the following: Things can always be worse.  We were luckily in a town when the truck broke down.  A few days prior we were in the middle of nowhere. There are still businesses out there with exceptional service.  Rare Form Auto is one of them...

How we spent 9 spontaneous days in Southern Utah


Originally we planned to travel through Nevada and central California for the month of March. Instead we caught a nasty case of the flu that laid us out for a solid three weeks. Come the 23rd, we were just barely feeling well enough to get the heck out of dodge and had 10 days left to enjoy before needing to be back in CO. With no plans but a heavy craving to go camping, we packed up, got in the...

35 days of truck camping in the Southwest


Last week we returned from a phenomenal five week camping trip to the Southwest.  It felt great to be back out on the road indulging our wandering spirits.  We split our time between campgrounds and boondocking sites in Utah, Nevada and Arizona, returning to some favorite spots as well as discovering new places we can’t wait to return to.  The constant motion of life on the...
