Our Travel Style & Our Blog
If you like a little cheesy rolled up with your steezy and a bit of adventure mixed with mishap, then welcome aboard the Cheddar Yeti travel experience.
On CheddarYeti.com you’ll get the scoop on Urban RV Parking, Off-Beat Art, Motor Travel and Regional Food Experiences we uncover. From Photographs to Interactive Maps and Stories of Adventure to handy Nomadic Survival Tips, we share our coolest findings right here. Get our newsletter and never miss an update.
Of course you should also join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as well. You’ll get up to the moment snaps of skylines, scenic roadways, neon signs, street art, wacky-wonderful foods and more. We “check in” when we’ve landed in a cool spot, then broadcast it. Then it’s totally appropriate to holla, so we can swap stories or perhaps even meet up!
Wether we’re urban camping or boondocking, eating street food or snappin’ photos, we’re stoked to have you along for the ride.
Working On The Road
Who dreams of endless hours in a cubicle? Why work for another man’s dream? How many people will actually get to retire? What will we regret?
No question. We sold our house, quit our nine to five jobs and went into business for ourselves. Got rid of all the useless crap weighing us down, bought an old motorhome and hit the open road.
Will you trade this HTML for two hot dogs and a tank of gas?
We enjoy our web development and graphic design careers, and it’s a good thing because gas and hot dogs aren’t free. Our mobile-home office: The Motorhome Office of Design And Technology, provides the space and the internet keeps us connected. We’ve made it our goal to eventually have a client in every state we visit. City by city, town by town, working for America’s independent thinkers.

Our Nomadic Life On Wheels
Our small nomadic home is an urban condo, a tree fort, a beach cottage, a desert hideaway, and a cabin in the woods… all at once.
Outfitted with just the simple necessities of living and two peacock lamps, our 280 square foot abode allows us the freedom of affordable, full time, travel.
Cheddar Yeti One. The Lazy Daze.
Where We Started
In December 2009 we purchased a 1988 Lazy Daze Motorhome in San Diego, California. In short, we had ourselves a 22-year-old, 14,000 lb, fuel hog, poo storage, house on wheels that we had no idea how to operate.
Roll your sleeves up, ’cause anything that can go wrong will, indeed. Somewhere far from a repair shop, in the Yosemite Valley or on an interstate in the middle of Pennsylvania. Our gray water tank fell out while driving one day and we melted our brakes on a 6% grade the next.
But that didn’t stop us. We continued to tour the country, coast to coast, putting over 30,000 miles on the Lazy Daze in less than three years. “Keep on Cheddin.” Pomps says, and we have…
Cheddar Yeti II. The Wanderlodge.
Our Current Vessel
In October 2012, after a summer of unending repairs on the Lazy Daze, we found a finely aged vessel that tempted us to change our ways. It was a trusty diesel-powered, 1978 Wanderlodge Bluebird Bus we spotted on ebay in New York. And although we swore we’d only go smaller, our next nomadic home became this 35′ vintage “bird” of swanky paradise. She quickly took her place as the second Cheddar Yeti vessel.
So, Why Do We Call Ourselves, Cheddar Yeti?
It is more than the name of our motorhome, it’s our term for doing whatever the hell we want to.
F––k the man. F––k somebody else’s dream. Pack your bags, life doesn’t suck.
