January started with a bang and then just about fizzled out before we had a chance to say goodbye.
We moved back into our bus after being estranged from it for over six months. Wasting no time we headed out to the desert for a New Years Eve celebration with a junket of rambling friends. Life couldn’t get much better as we kicked off the upcoming year, until of course, we were stopped dead in our tracks.
By the end of January, our one week of boondocking in the desert had turned into an unexpected three week adventure and education. The abrupt change of plans would end up granting us a clearer perspective into the path for simpler living we seek. But we didn’t realize this at that moment.

From our wild ride on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in New York, down the mountainous Blue Ridge Parkway, across tornado alley, and over the Hoover dam– we soaked up, survived and surrendered over 4,000 miles together on this cross country road trip.
Lubricating this road trip was our deluxe accommodations; our new vintage 1978 Bluebird Wanderlodge bus with our Honda Civic in tow. Making the journey spectacular was our visitors and visits along the way. We arranged sleep overs, and play dates, hitchhikers, new acquaintances, and reunions. Now, we hang out a bit longer, pack our cupboard with unnecessary amounts of spoils for sharing, and even take mini road trips (on top of our main road trip), in the car to expand our local reach – it’s freakin’ awesome.

Not typical but, not that crazy either.
People of all ages find it a bit wild that a “young couple” – in our 30’s, are out full time RVing. However, we have found that this life is quite comfortable, rewarding and YES even at our age, totally possible! We know this because since we hit the road in 2010, we have met many others both online and in person doing exactly what we are. Enjoying life, however we each define it.
In February 2013, Kristen Mitchell of RV West Magazine wanted to know more about us, how we do it and a bit about what drives us. Frankly, we’re flattered. Thank you Kristen for the interview.
