Six Years On The Road!

We officially started traveling with no home base 6 years ago today. We left Portland, Oregon in a 22ft 1973 Class C RV (that’s an RV with a van front and) called the Brougham. It had bald tires, a bad alternator, bad differential, and a leaky roof, but it got us all…

Asheville, NC is a Cool Little Town

In fact, Asheville was recently rated the coolest town in the US by the Matador Network.  It’s a definite oddity in the South and a rarity for the entire country that a city so laid back, beer friendly and vegan friendly would exist in such a compact package.

Nerds Back on the Road with a New Torque Toy Hauler!

So for the third winter (and probably one too many), we had decided to stay in a vacation cabin. This time near Durango, Colorado with the hope that we would ski every weekend and snowmobile every other weekend and that the snow would be deep enough for us to jump…

Winter Camping: 1 Week in the Trailer (Feels like 2 in the Cabin)

We recently had to vacate the cabin for a week to accommodate some pre scheduled guests. We have known for 4 months but that didn’t make the moving any easier. We started moving things in about a week ahead of time but due to the cold temperatures, there were many things we…
