It’s no secret that it’s been a weird year for weather. In fact, just two weekends ago we were in Colorado and got snow! Just a few weeks ago we were checking the snowpack report for the Eastern Sierra’s and found that it was 180%+ higher than average.
The month starts off with us leaving Joshua Tree NP, CA and headed out towards the coast. A friend of our who we had been with that weekend gave us a call to tell us that he came across one of the last sections of the super bloom out by his friends house in a residential area and that we should check it out.
Owen and I will be carrying separate systems for the trail to be sure that we’re capturing our experience to the best of our ability without duplicating anything or overloading ourselves with unnecessary gear.
We’re just over a month away from starting the John Muir Trail! If you’re not familiar with the trail, it’s a 211 mile section of the Pacific Crest Trail that runs from Yosemite Valley to Mount Whitney, in California.
We get frequently get asked how we make money on the road so we can afford to travel full time. If you have been with us for a while you probably already know the basics, but we thought it would be fun to put together a video detailing our business.
Hello my friends, MAK here! It’s been a while since we’ve had a month on the road recap. This is a particularly exciting one because it’s our first being in our new rig/home/office and with our cat Luna!
Over the past few years I’ve started to clean house in an attempt to make our lives have less of an impact on the earth and be healthier for us. I’ve systematically started taking on different products and processes and finding ways to do them cleaner!
How did we get here? This brand spankin’ new Tundra with a brand spankin’ new Four Wheel Camper is a far cry from our vanlife roots. There’s no short answer to this question so we’ll do our best to explain in this little essay (MLA format and all).
As always welcome back! It’s hard to believe that this is the last post documenting 2018. It was one hell of a year for us and it felt good starting the last month of the year off by finding some warmer weather in some familiar places.
Hello everyone! As you all know we sold Amelia shortly after we completed her eight month long build. We wanted to pass along the final videos in the build series as well as her final tour, and a full explanation for why we sold her.
The beginning of the month looking back feels like a blur of work all day and working out way west in the evenings. By now fall was in full swing and the weather was starting to be cold and rainy more consistently.
After a long hiatus from making build videos we’re back! Work has prevented me from getting around to editing all the videos of Amelia’s build but the holiday break is giving me an opportunity to jump back in.
Our first night of the month Owen and I decided to finally catch a sunset from the top of Cadillac mountain. Despite the fact that we had been in the park for a whole week we managed to save this increadible view for last.
Last week on Instagram I asked for people to send over their biggest questions about the full-time travel/vanlife/overlanding lifestyle because I wanted to answer them! I got a ton of great questions from people and I wanted to pass along the Q&A to you guys!
Over the years (wow it’s weird that we can say that), Owen and I get a lot of questions about life on the road and we’re ready to start tackling those questions one by one. First on the list? Free time on the road, how much we have and what we do with it!
This past week Owen and I sat down to look for a picture and remembered that we had yet to share our favorite images from 2017. We know, we know...we're about five months late getting this posted, but better late then never right?
