Curious about the world, and seeking personal fulfillment and adventure, we left the comforts of hearth and home in Phoenix, Arizona and began our journeys in a travel trailer.

In 2008, we upgraded to a fifth-wheel for more comfort, and in 2010 we moved aboard a sailboat to spend the winters cruising the Pacific coast of Mexico.

We returned to our trailer for two wonderful summers (2011 and 2012), and then, after comparing the two lifestyles side by side, we decided to resume traveling exclusively by RV.

Becoming Full-Time Travelers

We sold our sailboat and returned to living in our trailer full-time in January, 2014.

It is our sincerest hope that the stories, photos and tips we share on this website will inspire you to fulfill your travel dreams.  Our lifestyle is exciting and a little exotic, and it is entirely achievable.  Perhaps, like us, you will set aside a period of time in your life to cast off from the workaday world and try a new life that is filled with adventure and freedom.

If that is not possible for you right now, we hope at the very least that you find our travel tales amusing and entertaining, and that you feel like you are a part of our journey, joining us in spirit on our exploits.05-RV-in-Flaming-Gorge-Utah-301

We lived relatively ordinary lives until we ran off in an RV.  Mark grew up in Michigan, majored in Electronic Engineering at RETS and worked for Xerox corporation for 26 years.  I grew up in Massachusetts, did a double major in Physics and English at Amherst College and worked as a software engineer and IT consultant for 20 years.

In the early 2000’s we both left the corporate world to pursue more personally fulfilling work.  Mark opened a boutique bike shop and I worked as a personal trainer.  Learning to get by on smaller wages taught us to live skinny and made us realize that a more daring and unusual lifestyle might be possible sooner rather than later.

Amazing Sights to See


Our crazy life of full-time travel has been exhilarating and eye-opening for us.  We hope our stories and tips are entertaining for those of you who enjoy reading travel adventures from the comfort of home.  Even nearer to our hearts: we hope our tales bring inspiration to everyone who dreams of taking off in an RV or sailing over the horizon in a boat.  The life we live is very accessible for anyone that does a little planning and has a lot of wanderlust!
