KYD Podcast 2.0 – It’s back!
Welcome back to the Keep Your Daydream Podcast!
In this episode, we’ll get you all caught up on what’s been happening in the KYD community, why we stopped podcasting, why we are back, and what you can expect on the KYD podcast version 2.0.
Listen here or on iTunes
We’ll also introduce you to future conversations and topics that we’ll have about moving your dreams forward. Learn about getting to the core of your dreams, having a vision, finding your spark, and taking small steps towards your dreams, and building a community around your vision.
We can’t wait to share more episodes with you in KYD 2.0!
Creating a Podcast Community
As we mentioned in this episode, one of the reasons we stopped podcasting is because of the lack of community and feedback. If you enjoy the episodes, we’d love to know what you got out of the conversation and what topics we should add to our list of future topics. Each episode will be linked the same /episode# so after listening, comment below and keep in touch!

Awesome podcast guys! 🙂
Thanks for a great conversation, we do like it and found it super informative!
Chris Wheeler says
Mark & Trish
Thanks for coming back. We travel part time & live in RV locally most of summer as we take care of our vacation rentals. But in the travel time we just got started listening to podcasts and you are here YAY .
Look forward to more
Chris & Cliff
So great to see the podcasts back on! I was curious why they had stopped now that I just finished listening to them all yesterday and sure enough you are back today! We are a family from Bend, Oregon getting ready to take off either RV’ing or sailing or both! We have a eight year old girl and a ten year old boy that we are planning on home schooling, so any information your have on that topic would be awesome. My wife and I backpacked around the world for a year back in 2016/17, but would really love to take our kids on an adventure while they still like us. We really enjoy how “real” your family is and how close you have all become travelling….a huge inspiration….THANK YOU!
Mindy Rodriguez says
I just listened to your podcast about what to consider when making a change. I too am a teacher and feel so burnt out, not because I don’t love teaching, but because my workday never ends. My class-sizes are huge which leads to tons of grading and lesson planning on the weekends because my workdays are filled with teaching, subbing, tutoring, and endless meetings. I love your YouTube channel and daydream about taking more extended vacations. I’m in the process of getting my principal certification so that I will be able to eventually move into an office position in the field of education…same benefits, better pay, better work/life balance, and I still get a full month and holidays off. Your podcast made me realize that I’m on the right track. Thanks for the inspiration:)
Thank you for bringing back the podcast! I find your content so inspirational. As you said in the episode, it helps push your dreams forward when you are absorbing and surrounding yourself with parts of that dream. Thanks in large part to your podcast and YouTube videos, we are making progress on our dream!
Laurence Phillips says
Hi – yes feedback here. This was very good, nice to have the clarity of where podcast was and where it’s going, and also the separate discussion of managing one’s perception of their dream, that really hit home for me. Two minor nits: the verbal signposting at the beginning got a bit repetitive and off-putting; also you may had forgotten you said emphatically at the end that this is 108 and find it that way but the number is nowhere in the post headline or detail.
Pamela Dehn says
So glad your podcast is back! I love listening to you on my way to and from work!
My jaw hit the ground today when I saw there was a new KYD podcast!
Keep up the great work Trish! Looking forward to hearing more including the podcast with the Wynns!
Mark and Trish, I listened to your podcast this morning and I want to say thank you for the encouragement. You’re right, you just need to not plan the perfect scenario, just get out there and do it while you still got time. My wife and I are both in our mid to late 60s and are turning the business over to our daughter. Hopefully in January we will hit the road with our new 2019 reflection. U2 have really been a great encouragement to us both. We found your YouTube channel just a couple of months ago and binge watched all you had out there. We feel like we know you. We sure do love your family. Such a great group. God bless, Isaac
Laurence Phillips says
Yes feedback – This was really good, both the past and future of the podcast and the discussion about one’s perception of their dream, that really hit home for me. A couple of small nits: the verbal signposting at the beginning got a bit repetitive and overbearing; and you may had forgotten that at the end you said this was blog number 108 and to look for that number on the site, but the number is not in the post.
'Wayne Glabais' says
Hey Marc & Trish,
Glad to hear you have started the podcast again. Always good for a bedtime story.

Sara H. says
So glad you are re-launching the podcast – I really enjoyed the previous episodes. I would love for you to talk about how you are homeschooling the kids. I know you mentioned in the beginning that you enrolled them in an online school but then changed that approach. How has it gone? What has worked, what hasn’t? What should someone heading out on the road think about related to this? Since your kids are older, I would also love your thoughts about how they connect with friends and the impact roadschooling has had on them. Lastly, what do you think are the advantages/disadvantages for their spending the middle/high school years, in particular, roadschooling. Thanks for sharing your journey!
Jim olsen says
Love the podcasts and glad your back. You tube is great for entertainment but I learned so much from your podcasts. Would love for you to share how you trip plan and keep track of your routes. Google maps?
Bob Ripley says
Hi. This is the 1st of your podcasts I’ve ever listened to and I’m glad I did. My wife and I are planning a change in our life 15 mths from now but right now it exists as a dream. Your “conversation ” has given me the conviction to start the necessary de-cluttering now, so that it doesn’t become overwhelming in the future. Thanks!
Erin Gray says
Love that you started the podcast back up again! I always wondered why you stopped because the content was awesome. So glad that you’re back! The format was perfect- a conversation between you two. It doesn’t have to be fancy with music intros, etc:) , the content carries the podcast.
Shirley Peters says
Thankyou for your new podcasts. It will be great listening. I’m also a big fan of your weekly YouTube’s as well. I appreciate how much you are giving of yourselves. It’s such fun following your adventures.
Penelope Russell Bartell says
This was great! Excellent steps. Thank you.
Thank you and KYD PC 2.0 was great. I would totally agree that it is very important to start on the junk style drawers or the cupboard in the spare room or the garage, and move forward from there. As someone who has recently just sold our house, and is down sizing to something 1/2 the size and 1,850 km’s (1,100 miles) away near a beach, as was the dream from a long time ago, you get better at reducing the ‘stuff’. We have gone back to a draw or a cupboard and re-done the ‘clean’, sometimes three times, as your vision gets stronger and clearer on the things you thought you actually needed, but realise you don’t. For us (my wife and I) it has been a 18 month process, as we have cleaned the house out of stuff, got the house ready for sale, sold the house, and now at the end of the 18 month process still sifting through stuff, and selling or giving it away before the big move in a month. Excited and scary all at the same time.
I could listen to you for hours and hours. Cheers!
John Strege says
I never heard your prievious podcast and I don’t listen to any others so I am not real savvy about what to expect but this one seemed a little deep for me. There were to many abstract terms that are hard to grasp. I hope future podcasts will be more straight forward and less philosophical.
Ron and Jacki Stacy says
Thanks for this opportunity to hear in conversation about RVing full time. One year ago we sold our house and bought our RV. I’d been reading blogs, watching YouTube, reading books and daydreaming about the rving life for several years. I was craving a severe lifestyle change borne of occupational burnout. So, we sold the house, purged and bought the rv all in 60 days.
Mandy Walker says
I just discovered podcasts about 2 months ago and happened upon yours. It is my fave, I have now joined my kids watching you tube videos, yours, I am on season 1 episode 29! I am feeling so inspired by your adventures.
This podcast has been so interesting to hear that it didn’t happen overnight and all the research you have done as I often wondered how you managed it. You do seem to have 3 very easygoing lovely kids! I shall visualise my future adventures!!
I love your podcasts, your videos and look forward to your future adventures!
I moved from UK to Australia 11 yrs ago and we try to travel either overseas or with our camper trailer during all the school hols. There are so many amazing places in Australia! My daughter and I took small steps and started an Instagram account for our travels a week ago. My goal is be a full time traveller one day too, small steps and I will get there! I am very thankful to you for such great travel inspirational videos and podcasts. Thanks, Mandy
Thanks guys… I really needed a lift in my journey. I have to remember small steps and that thing will always go wrong! You guys really encourage me to keep moving forward.
I am so excited you guys are bringing the podcast back!! I have been a loyal watcher for about a year and now we are preparing for our own adventure, so really anything you guys put out is always so helpful. Thanks so much for all the hard work you do to make such awesome content!
David Reyburn says
Thanks M&T. That was great. Didn’t need a video to convey the message. I guess I’m just new to podcast listening Lol.
Thomas Kopinski says
Love the U-tube Stuff and the pod cast gives a different perspective. Kind of like sitting together around the kitchen table. I didn’t even know you had a pod cast before. I’ve only been following for about a year.
Welcome! There are over 100 episodes of Trish interviewing people that have done something out of the norm. You’re right. This is like a kitchen conversation and we can tackle deeper conversations. Podcasts an Audible is all we do while driving.
Love your podcast Mark and Trish…….your videos too. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to more in the future!
Want to listen, I’m going to try to learn how to do this.
The easiest way is the play bar on this page, but the best way is on your phone while driving, etc. If you have an iPHone, just open the podcast app. If Android, you have to download a podcast app and then search for Keep Your Daydream.
Adrian Bowley says
I’m so glad you brought the podcast back! My wife and I didn’t discover your YouTube channel until halfway through season 3. Even though you had already stopped making new podcasts by then, I found the old ones are still relevant and full of useful knowledge. My family and I take three week vacations every summer to somewhere in the US (plus local weekend camping trips throughout the camping season). My wife and I plan on RVing full-time once we retire. Our youngest daughter is disabled and will also be joining us on our retirement adventures. She has Down Syndrome and cerebral palsy, and she uses a wheelchair most of the time. I was wondering if you could do a podcast on RVing full-time with disabilities. It would be nice to get someone else’s perspective, tips, and tricks. We got the Americans with Disabilities National Parks Pass, and that has been wonderful! What else is out there.
Thank you for sharing your family adventures with everyone. You have and awesome family.
That’s great Adrian! Thanks for sharing your story!
Steven & Carletta Priddy says
Enjoyed the podcast and also your youtube videos, I am 63 years old and married to my wonderful wife for 23 years. She is fighting breast cancer for the second time and just finished 18 weeks of harsh treatment. Hoping she will be feeling better soon. We both love camping and traveling. We bought a small 21 foot camper three years ago just to see if we liked it and fell in love with the life style. We traveled down to Fort Myers Florida on a 18 day trip and then to upper Wisconsin a few months later for about 10 days and ever since then I have been wanting to hit the road for more time. I love pulling the rig, having driven a school bus years before and also tour bus for a year, so pulling the rig does not bother me.. Last spring we sold the 21 foot and bought a 2016 26.5 Forest River Surveyor with two slides in living area. We live in Kentucky and bought a cabin on Barren River Lake 20 years ago and decided to make it our home. We built on to both ends and renovated the whole thing, 2300 square feet, so we didn’t have to down size to move to the lake. Now the home takes lots of upkeep inside and out and I feel like it has become a burden since I am older. So we are starting to move toward our goal of traveling more. We are listing our boat for sale in the next month since we used it very little the last two years. We also feel we must down size our home to be able to afford to full time travel, but having trouble getting this done because we love our lake home. Listening to yours and other youtube videos and this pod cast helps me to understand how to approach our dream of traveling. We still have some hurdles to overcome but feel like we can achieve this goal!!!!! Keep up the good work!
i am 65 yrs young and watch your adventures in rving. just wondering do you come across couples 65 and older and ever discuss with them how their experiences are as i am pretty sure there are many rvers this age that wonder how the 65 and up crowd get along when they rv, also if they find it expensive and difficult to do at this age. thks love your adventures but looks like it can be quite expensive doing what you folks do. also what will you do when the rving is done and you have seen everything you wanted?
Karen Oster says
FANTASTIC! So glad you’re back! I follow 7 other “Travelers living their Dreams”, ssshhhh! You’re my FAV and I am Excited to have “more” of your day to day. Currently I am living vicariously through you as my other half is living their Dream Job and is unable to make that mobile, at least for next 5 years, then BOOM! We can SHARE our Traveling Dreams.
Clay Sorrell says
Glad to hear the pod has been revived! My wife and I really enjoy all your content. You can’t beat the YouTube videos but the podcast is a very close second as I can listen when working, running errands etc. I would love to hear more about the logistics of things like school for the boys when traveling or budgeting and investing while on the move. Hope you are all doing well. Thanks for all you do.
Steve Merkle says
Welcome home and thanks for for bringing the Podcast back with you!???????? I think the Podcast is awesome and have missed it to the point I was listening to them all again. I feel it gives that in depth and one on one conversation about a topic much as if you were in the same room. And since you two are all over the place and I can’t get you to come over every Saturday Night this works out great.???? Our attention spans have been hijacked by endless notifications that give us only split second satisfaction and add nothing to our long term well being. So….thank you Podcast 2.0 and the positive message you continue to bring!????????
Vicki Robinson says
Glad you guys are launching this again. It would be fun to have a conversation with you, but this is the next best thing! Totally loved listening while I get a little work done this morning.
My teenage son just launched last week from WA, and we are headed south! In Napa, CA at the moment, and it’s feeling like spring while the folks at home are dealing with snow!
I’ve been a follower while I prepped over the last year, as it was fun to see someone else with teens! (And yes, I kinda beat myself up a bit for taking “so long” thanks for sharing your thoughts on that!)

Christy Hebert says
Loved the podcast! My husband and I have watched your You Tube videos faithfully. You have definitely motivated us to do things differently. I am new to the podcast and plan to go back and listen to them all. Also, all the topics you said you will be discussing on future podcasts are definitely topics that I have been interested in learning about. Can’t wait to hear them!
Really enjoyed the new Podcast (and love all the YouTube content). I was literally taking notes while listening and challenging myself to move from the beautifully buffed daydream to the slightly less grand “doing” stage. Thanks for all the inspiration!
Barbara Holder says
Just listened to your Podcast 2.0 (reboot). Thoroughly enjoyed it, inspired by it. Can’t wait for more of them as I continue to envision our future : ) Thanks for taking the time and effort to sit down and do them… it’s really helpful to hear from voices of experience. Safe travels… God bless you.
Thank you for bringing the podcast back – very excited to listen in and gain some great info.
Would love to hear from you what resources you have found useful throughout your journey – what podcasts do you listen to? What books do you read? I know this was something you were including in the weekly newsletters, and would love to see it come back, in the newsletter, on the podcast, or both! 🙂
Yes, feedback – This was really good, both the past and future of the podcast and the discussion about one’s perception of their dream, that really hit home for me. A couple of small nits: the verbal signposting at the beginning got a bit repetitive and overbearing; and also, you may had forgotten you said at the end this was podcast number 108 and to look for that number on the site, but the number is not in the post.
Thanks for this awesome podcast. Just learning about your community. Having trouble figuring out a location indpendant job that will earn enough funds. Do you recommend any of courses or books to help discern this? Thank you
Great job on your podcast can’t wait for more episodes
Love your podcast keep it up. Can’t wait for the next one!
I think for me it’s been an evolution. I first found you thru your podcasts. I saw your YouTube videos and it was a near endless binge of going thru those. So entertaining, fun to watch, inspiring for travelling, informative, etc etc. But I’ve come back around to the podcasts. So many dreams and so many ways people have met them. Pure inspiration. So glad there is BOTH! Thank you! (And I so wish someday you’ll cover more about the clean eating you guys do ….just the idea of farmers markets as Destinations was a great one! And seeing you guys snacking on fruits and veggies all the time!! And the recipes! Need more!) So much great content! Thanks again!
I am so glad you brought the podcast back! Yours was always one of my favorite travel podcasts. I always wondered what happened but just figured there wasn’t enough time in the day with your YouTube videos. I enjoy your YouTube videos but sometimes I am doing something else where I can only listen to audio. Keep up the great work!
Mark Heene says
Yeah th podcast is back. I started out listening to your podcast early on several years ago. I like your YouTube channel but it’s nice to have a podcast to listen to in the car, now with a little different flavor. Leo up the great content.
Mary Lou says
Great videos in NZ! Thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the family together.
Welcome back. I love when my alert tells me the video is waiting for me.
This Podcast was fun as well. Keep up the great information and tips you’ve learned. It gets overwhelming when you are in the holding pattern. Too much thinking.
Great advice for downsizing easy things first.
It makes so much sense and keeps you motivated.
We’re working on it but winter slowed us down a bit. (Kids and school germs.)
Homeschooling is my biggest concern/fear. I’m the least likely teacher and common core!? We have a few years to get things in order. That’s all. 3 years and I want to be on the road, even if it’s for moving South to start.
Thanks for letting us share the journey.
Kenneth Baker says
Thanks for the confirmation! I follow you and several other full-time families on your journeys. I do this to immerse myself in stories and information about I want my life to be. My wife says I will drive myself crazy by watching videos and being consumed with RVs until I reach the place where we can go full-time. This podcast confirmed that by watching and learning from others who have gone before me, I am preparing myself to do it. I am also going to start reading about “location independent” jobs. Just having a handy search term like that helps a lot. Thanks for sharing your life and, now a new obsession PodCast for my Castro feed.
Teri Ortega says
Great content M & T. Thank you for sharing yourselves and your adventures. I am very happy you are back to doing podcast. I love being to download and listen anywhere. And thank you for the inspiration.
JayeDeen Navo says
This is like sitting around the dining table talking with friends over coffee.
I’m looking forward to many more.
We are two years full time this month and we continue to learn. I’m so glad we found KYD.
Todd Bogenrief says
Thank you for the podcast, it came at the perfect time! My wife and I just started our “five year plan” to get as much out of debt as possible, get the house ready for sale, sell all of our stuff, and head out on the road full-time. I will still be working from the road as a software engineer, but we didn’t want to wait another 20 years until I retire to start traveling.
Valerie Ritenour says
My husband and I are on year 2 of our 5 year plan! I just wish it was time now!
Tricia Leach says
Making big progress! All the best!
I’m so glad you’re bringing the podcast back! I really enjoyed the previous one, and I watch your YouTube videos each week. This one really resonated with me. When I took my current job 10 years ago, I knew I had 10 years left to retire early at 62. For a long time, this dream seemed so far off that there was nothing to do but dream about it. Well, here it is – 2019 is my year. Suddenly it’s here and now I am in a full scramble and feeling overwhelmed. I decided to rent out my house rather than sell it, so I’m having to purge and clean out everything. I also will be buying a larger RV, since I currently have a 17′ travel trailer and I know I couldn’t live in that full time. I’m excited, but I’m also feeling a lot of decision fatigue. It’s emotionally draining, but I know I’ll get through it. I recently read a quote that said something like “So far, my success rate at getting through bad days is 100%.” I watch all the YouTube RVers I can find, and read every RV blog. It’s fun, but it also contributes somewhat to the overwhelm – there’s so much information. But, it’s all good – I keep telling myself that…
Sean Mormelo says
One thing I’d encourage you guys to do is upload these podcasts onto YouTube. Most of the podcasts that are big and the ones I listen to besides this one are also uploaded to YouTube and I believe that will give it to Legs that it needs. There are a lot more eyeballs reach that can be had with YouTube.
I love that the Podcast is back, and the team concept is really nice as that’s how you live your lives–bouncing ideas off one another. Thank you! I also like that they are intended for Insiders and that makes it special for this smaller community. YouTube has its place but I feel having the opportunity for folks to join Insiders community is all that is necessary rather than putting it out on YouTube. To me, that would diminish the “community” effect where one feels safe in what they say/do/ask without it being out there in the public and generic www. The invitation to join is always there.
Tricia Leach says
We love that you are part of the community!
Cindy Arnold says
Just joined podcast life thanks to KYD as well as becoming KYD insiders. Whoop!
So stoked ya’ll brought the podcast back! I’ve been following for many months now, and have been listening to some of the old podcasts in addition to following your YouTube channel. What you guys share is relevant and helpful, and also entertaining. You all have inspired me so much in the last year, that I finally made the leap and purchased my first RV last month!! Your advice to stop waiting for the “right time” and start living your dreams NOW is GOLD. I’m depending on your videos and nuggets of advice as I transition to full-time RVing in the next few weeks! Thank you for all you do, and for the time and effort you put into always giving us great content!
Hey guys! I’m so stoked you brought the podcast back! I have been following for the last year – listening to the old podcast and following your YouTube channel. You guys have been such an inspiration to me – in fact, I took the leap and purchased my first RV last month! I will be looking to you guys for all the advice and tips as I transition to full time RVing in the next few weeks. Your advice to stop waiting for the “right time” and start living your dream NOW has become my mantra for this year! Thank you for all you do, and for all your effort in always giving us quality content!!
Been following your family video adventures for a few months now. You have inspired my wife and I into action and we are shopping for our own Class C adventures! Marc you are great at video content, editing, music over-lays, and from a fellow drone junkie, well done!
Glad to hear the Podcasts are coming back. Trish, you are an natural in the audio podcast world where the listener needs, calm repetition for the important points to sink in and a moment to reflect. Keep driving the podcasts and those important points home! (Trish, you actually carry that characteristic into the video world – “screen door open, screen door closed”. LOL)
Could you post your potential topic list for Podcast 2.0? It was read much too fast and even listening to it several times, I did not catch the topics (visual learner).
My first spark… the vision board! Love that idea, it really appeals to my creative side. A way to get down our dream in a way I can really work with! And share with my family. Can’t believe how excited that idea made me… Thanks Trish!
Tricia Leach says
Crazy how planting seeds in your mind, visually, is so important! Your family is a great example. Big hugs and lots of love Penelope!
Kate T says
So happy the podcast is back! I’ve been in serious need of some inspiration and motivation lately and so excited to hear more about all the topics you plan to cover. You make my morning commute my happy place. I’ve been struggling lately because sometimes it feels like my big dream is so far off in the future (my husband and I can’t become location independent for another 9 years due to his job), but despite this I know it’s definitely a blessing that he’ll get to “retire” at 41 so we want to stick it out. But your discussion in this episode made me realize that there’s no reason we can’t pick up some momentum toward that dream TODAY. Even if we have to wait 9 years until we move around the world, we can start making progress toward that every day. Number one on my list is to make my job remote right now. Even if we can’t start traveling, I’ll have more time with my family NOW and be better prepared for the day we do hit the road.
Tricia Leach says
Wow! That’s huge Kate. Asking what can you do today to improve your current environment. Not only to prepare for the future but to open opportunities in the now. Sweet!
Thank you for all the great information. We have been snowed in for the last three days and stumbled on your YouTube adventures. We have watched season 1 to 5. Amazing adventure thus far and will begin season 6 tonight.
Tricia Leach says
Sweet!! Finding fun content and cozying from the snow sounds great! Glad you are on the journey with us!
Will Richards says
Great job with this podcast! The new stripped down format is great. The great thing about a podcast is it doesn’t have to be all about the production value. It can just be a simple conversation. You two do that very well. My wife and I are in our in our early 40’s, and we’ve set our date to be in our class A full time for 1 July 2020, and on the road in December 2020 after I finish up a 24 year Army Career. We’ve started the process of selling our things, and we think that will culminate next spring with an estate sale followed by quickly selling our home.
My wife works from home as a field marketing manager for a large industrial software company, so she is already location independent. I have a degree in business, and 24 years of experience in logistics, so hopefully I can turn that into a remote operations position, but I’ll keep my aperture a little more open, and cross the bridge when I come to it. The bottom line is I will always have an income after I retire, so I’m not to stressed about it.
We’ve given some serious thought about documenting the process and sharing it, but we’re still on the fence. There are so many full timers out there who make great videos about their experiences. But I’ve honestly not seen any that start from where we are at now, sitting in our living room saying to each other we are really going to do this, and listing all of our possessions on Facebook Marketplace. We’ll most likely make a decision on that in the next month or so. We would love to hear your thoughts on documenting your life. Was there apprehension at first, how did you make the decision, and how has it cost or benefit you.
We just wanted to say thank you for the motivation, keep up the great videos, and please keep making podcasts of the two of you just chatting. They are great!
Tricia Leach says
Hey there Will! First, let me say thank you for your service to our country. Marc and I truly appreciate all that encompasses!…and give your wife a big hug from us because we know family plays a role in those responsibilities too. We are excited to hear about your plans and we will definitely fold your ideas into upcoming podcasts. The short answer on documenting your life is, YES! If for nothing else, you will LOVE looking back on all your great adventures. All the best, Trish
Thank you so much for starting up the podcast again! This was the first podcast I ever listened to and I loved every one of the episodes. Keeps me company on my commute and I also learned so much from listening. Love YouTube as well but missed the podcast terribly. Welcome back ????
Tricia Leach says
YAY! Glad you are here with us! We will keep ‘em coming.
Matt Macreadie says
So glad you resumed the KYD podcast. You mentioned in episode 108 that you were interested in future ideas. One of the things I would really love to know is a bit more about what has formed some of your core beliefs and philosophies. Each week your YouTube video injects positivity into the lives of many. As a dad of 4, soon to be young 5 kids, I can appreciate how well you’ve raised your children. I would love to gain an insight into what you were like a decade ago and what were the formational ideas that brought you to where you are today.
I love the books you have previously recommended and have listened to the Jim Rohn one you recommended quite a few times and the Tropical MBA podcast is also inspiring to keep the dreams in forethought. Is there a chance you could do a VLOG or podcast that unpacks some of the inspirational tools that keep you grounded in times of challenge and motivate you when you need a little push?
Thanks again Marc and Trisha for all your great content. Keep it up!
Tricia Leach says
Oh this is great! We will dive into that. In short…A BUNCH of reading. That is what has given us new ideas and formed the way we look at life. We can definitely get into this more as the podcast progresses. Thanks for being on the journey with us!
Love that quote and I like the professional way you two approached the topic. You gave me the idea to approach our new phase of life, (pre-retirement) like it is our start-up business. One that we create and shape the way We, the founders and only customers, want! I am going to look at it as an LLC, which to me now means “Little Logical Chunks”, Step one, get clear on what it is we want to experience and share. No more fantasizing and procrastination. We need to name what we want and why we want it.
Thank you so much for your content here and on YouTube. We just purchased our rig yesterday and tested it out last night in our own driveway. My husband is calling it his mobile office. Babysteps!
Tricia Leach says
LOVE THIS!! Using a business model for life really sets clear perimeters on how to move forward with clear vision.
I really didn’t think that post had created such deep conversation lol
I didn’t consider concessions to equal downgrade. I viewed as a kick in the butt for conviction upgrade. Thus incorporating an outreach with our travel plan
Tricia Leach says
Totally! A kick in the butt is totally part of the whole…and definitely needed for us (from time to time). We love that it was posted because it was something for us to think about and impetus to a great conversation!
OMG, what a pleasant surprise to listen to you all this morning! I was so inspired and must tell you that the concept of Vision has been a theme for me this morning. Your podcast, my devotional, and a leadership email I subscribe to. I will be retiring from 33 years in education this spring and I will be creating a vision board this weekend for my “Chapter 2” when I hit the road in my Class C RV. I follow you all on YouTube but thank you for returning to the podcast world.
Tricia Leach says
Oh man your vision board is pivotal! I am always surprised what things come into my life from having just a few things I am focused on…and then I ask myself…why are you surprised??? It was on your vision board!! Let that subconscious bring new things into your life!
Tracy Albertus says
Hi guys, super excited you brought the podcast back. My husband and I are working toward location independence and a lot of what you shared in episode 108 was very relate-able for us. I loved the part about getting rid of photo albums, we have just scanned all of our photos, put them into a box and ditched the actual albums. Of course as you stated this was not the first thing we have tackled but as we have already sold our house and most of our “stuff” this really wasn’t as overwhelming as it would have been had it been #1 on the list. Thanks for always encouraging others to pursue their dreams no matter how crazy their family and friends think they are!
Tricia Leach says
So glad you are back your podcasts feel very personal just like having a chat. Your YouTube’s are brilliant but the podcasts feel personal KYD is very inspirational wherever you watch listen or read. Thank you so much. ????
Tricia Leach says
We are so glad you are here!
I’m listening and so excited. We’ve been saying “someday” we’ll RV across the US. We had a series of tough things happen that left us with no commitments or attachments. We were planning to get location dependent jobs, get on our feet then figure out getting on the road. It hit me about a week ago why add the extra steps. Why not create some location independent income and get on the road now. So that’s what we’re doing and every is rapidly falling into place! We’re planning to hit the road by the end of this year!
Tricia Leach says
So amazing! Sometimes we are blow away by things that took so much time to create start falling into place with massive speed. We wish you all the best!
Paul and Marchel says
Really enjoyed this podcast and the inspirational messages to help one move forward with their dreams. Downsizing and de-cluttering can be difficult and overwhelming. Your tip about starting with the junk drawer and eliminating stuff that is easy really resonated with us. We are retiring a bit early and taking off in our Grand Design Imagine in May-ish for a planned one year sojourn around the country. We are starting out from our home in California, selling our house, shedding our stuff (so it no longer owns us) packing up our little dog and hitting the road. This has been my dream since I was a teenager and now my husband is totally on board. We want to ‘freedom camp’ (love that term) as much as possible. We have been enjoying your YouTube videos and have learned much about the full time life. We will continue to do so and hope to meet up with you on the road someday. Thanks again for all the information you share in such an entertaining manner. We have picked up many tips, like what to do when things are going sideways (ice cream for you, beer for us) and ‘slow is smooth and smooth is fast’! I want to start my own blog to document the journey and our traveling kitchen. We will be watching and listening as we prepare for and while on our adventure! Love being a part of this community.
Tricia Leach says
WOW! What a great journey you are about to embark on! All the best and safe travels.
Super inspirational and thought provoking! Love the format. We are looking forward to more. Thank you!
Tricia Leach says
Tricia Leach says
I’m getting back into RVing only to prepare for my future. Just listened to the podcast relaunch. I have been following you folks as well as a bunch other RV Youtubers. I have to say I admire all your hard work and family dedication. I also have my KYD truckers cap. I’m looking forward to more from videos and more podcasts. I enjoy learning about the places you have traveled to.
Keep up the great work, I love you, folks. You are an inspiration to me.
You guys are great! Sounds like some great topics! Can’t wait.
Have been Snowed-in in BC for almost 2 weeks, listening our way thru most of your YouTube every afternoon, while scanning in our photo collections.
What a journey, and what inspiration, love the authenticity of you and your team!
many thanks from Parksville BC.
Julie Warren says
Loved seeing this pop up on my podcast list today! Not sure how I missed that. 🙂 You two are always nice to listen to and I love gathering inspiration from you. So glad you are back!! Cheers!
Melonie Burgess says
Hi guys!! I am so excited that you are Podcasting again. I listened to your other ones while planning for us to go full time. So inspiring! Trish, you really ask great questions, and you and Marc have such an inviting banter ???? looking forward to topics to come. Thanks!
Michelle Jones says
Love what you said about people saying “I could never get rid of my photo albums” as a way to make the decision an easy no. When it’s possible it gets scary!
I’m thrilled you are starting the podcasts again! I’ve listen to all the previous ones, watched all your videos, and look forward to the new one every Sunday! But sometimes watching isn’t always possible so I love the idea of being able to listen while driving. Thank you for all your hard work to entertain and inspire us! You are a blessing!
Katie Krivolavek says
Glad to see the podcast back! ❤️I think I will really enjoy the new format as well, I hope to hear some of the more in-depth side of getting to life on the road AND thriving on the road.
My husband and I would love to hear more about how you prepared your business for you to manage it from the road. We each own a business and it’s been the hardest part of getting on the road, we thought we were getting there and then hit some major setbacks. Any tools or resources…and lessons learned…would help us so much!
We also wonder if there are any endeavors you wish you would have taken on before you left (i.e., investments, learning more about something, etc.) or anything you wish you would have let go before you left (i.e., particular investments, responsibilities still at home, anything!) or anything you would caution against now that you’ve been on the road.
We thought we were headed in the direction of being able to hit the road last year, but we lost an associate at one of our business and our house wouldn’t sell after a year and a half on the market…we aren’t going to give up our dream of living on the road and are excited to learn more on your podcast.
Awesome – awesome – podcast. Lots of very helpful info to get the ball rolling. Thank you!
This was so good! Even though much of it was not brand new thoughts or ideas, hearing it put together like this was extremely helpful. Being reminded of these steps and ideas. I will be listening to it a few times to get all of it, and will begin the implementation process. Thanks for taking the time to share.
Reuben Diachenko says
Good talk! – Thanks for sharing the conversation!
Marc shared before about realizing the solution for financial sustainability was moving forward not back – would be interested to here more about your final preparations for this before you hit the road – specifically when did you feel the risks (particularly with a family) were manageable enough to move ahead? As a solo traveler, my margin of error is fairly wider than it would be with a family but it would still be interesting to hear how you determined when you had sufficient sustainability to proceed.
Thanks for sharing the inspiration!
Fair question. As a business owner, I was focused on two things. Recurring income (retainers setup on auto-pay through my online credit card processing) and a system for acquiring new clients while traveling. Dealing with checks, billing or A/R would have been stressful so I needed to move all my existing clients to credit card. I also developed a way to meet with potential clients as we traveled. Any services business has attrition so I needed to know I could still grow. To help reduce the stress just prior to leaving, I had to keep in mind that RV Life was roughly 1/3 less than living ‘at home’. So I had some cushion. Hope that helps. I don’t share this level of detail normally, because it’s so specific to my business and not everyone.
So happy the podcast is back! I love your YouTube channel, but it’s difficult to watch while I sew. Your footage is so beautiful, I can’t look away 🙂 The KYD podcast is the perfect thing to listen to in my headphomes while I work. I’m working on growing my small business so I can go full time location independent. Thank you for your continued inspiration!
Teri Fortun says
Hello and I’m sure you are enjoying your time in New Zealand! I was so happy to hear that you are bringing the podcast back!! I can’t wait to hear an episode on getting the family onboard.
It has been a little over a year since my husband said to me, “Look at these people living in an RV traveling around the US with kids.”
We have been focused on moving towards that goal since then. I think you are right about little steps gaining momentum…… that and a lot of prayer. We are about a month and a half away from lift off!!!
For the past 2 years, every time my family’s needed a little encouragement to push ahead and work toward our goals, you’ve been there for us! Our original vision was to spend more time with our family. We started small with local camping. With 2 children in backpacking tents. Was it ideal? No, but it was fun and memories were made. We started looking at RVs so we could travel further and more comfortably. That’s when we stumbled across the YouTube channel and the what-ifs really started flowing. The day we were going to “just look” at RVs, my husband met you guys at our small town grocery store. We ended up buying our rig that day. Now we’re in our “year and a half” (it’ll be a little longer for us) period of working towards location independence. It’s easy to get comfortable with daily life and push our goals to the back burner, but this podcast really reignited this dream for us. It’s encouraging to hear about the work and time it takes to make goals happen. We’re looking forward to more podcast episodes, and we’ll be looking into some of your book suggestions to keep the fire burning!
Really glad to hear that the podcast is back. I just started a few weeks ago listening to the back catalog.
In this episode, you mentioned that you dove into books, blogs, podcasts, etc., to learn about location independence. I would love to hear your recommendations on this topic. A quick google search and it appears that everyone on the internet has some sort of comment or opinion on the subject. Not they they are not valid, but to hear what you found valuable would be helpful to me and others I would assume.
Maybe a quick blog post with listed resources or just mentions in an upcoming podcast.
Thanks for the motivation.
Charity Beadow says
I am so glad that you have brought the podcast back! I think with the new format you guys have really found your niche. It is so evident just from the brief conversations that you’ve shown us through the You Tube channel that you are constantly evolving as individuals, as a couple and as a family. You have such a great rapport with each other which makes listening to your conversations so enjoyable and inspiring. My husband and I are in the student/taking small actions stage of our journey to becoming location independent. We’ve had many conversations about this that I’m sure you have had as well. Even though we’ve never met, I feel like we are all kindred spirits and you are both certainly key people in this new community that we are creating. Thank you so much for Keeping Your Daydream. It seems like this was your true purpose in life!
Courtney Vernon says
My husband and I finally got our first rig. And needless to say we love your youtube channel. This is my first experience with podcasts, so just downloaded an app and will be listening daily to catch up! Thanks for making our spark grow bigger with your inspiration!
Lisa Barnes says
Amazing – we have been watching your Journey, wondering when we can begin ours. Ours is a little different as we have a son with cerebral palsy so the planning is a few more obstacles. This have been incredibly helpful.
Anna Lynn says
Please, please, more KYD Podcast 2.0 episodes! Loved this one – you have content for 20+ more episodes with the list of ideas you mentioned. I would be thrilled to hear a podcast on any/all of those. It’s true – those of us in the “podcast bunch” can be sort of quiet when it comes to feedback, but we really appreciate your effort and your topics. You and Marc are so easy to listen to! Pick a date and a topic, pour a cup of coffee and keep them coming! A million thanks!!
Marc & Trish,
I loved this Podcast!! It had so many inspirational ideas about fulfilling my dream. I especially loved the idea of cutting an image of what I want and putting it somewhere where I constantly see it. Please keep the Podcast coming! We love to hear from you both 🙂
Glad your back
Jeff & Sonia 2Adventure says
So glad the podcast is back! I like the advice of putting reality to your goals – make the goals concrete enough to visualize, take steps (some will be big and some will be small), chart your progress, celebrate little wins, and have cheerleaders to keep encouraging you.
Cathy Zawrotny says
I find the podcast interesting and inspiring. I am wondering, did your original dream involve the youtube channel or did that come later? I struggle with having it “all figured out” before I start and the more I hear stories of how people started is very helpful!
We had no concept of the YouTube channel. We only wanted to document our adventure and share it with others. We can relate to the feeling of having everything figured out, but just focus on the next step!
Kathy B says
Thanks and welcome back on air. I obtain notifications of your podcast through my podcast app. I don’t think there is a spot within that app to leave comments or give feedback. At least with YouTube I can give thumbs up or leave comments right on the site. Getting to your site, and then scrolling down through all the comments so that I can leave a comment is a bit cumbersome. That could be part of the reason why you were not getting much feedback… I look forward to the next evolution!
Nikki P. says
So great to hear you back on my podcast feed! Really looking forward to some of your upcoming interviews. But also just enjoyed you and Marc chatting. It’s a bit like sitting down for coffee with Trish…except I’m usually driving. Haha! Thank you for making my commute a time to look forward to! Cheers!
Sarah Jonsgaard says
Loved this episode! When do you guys hope to post new episodes again? I am really interested to see how things are going with your renovated cabin, what it’s like renting it out when you aren’t there all the time, if it’s worth it, etc.
Crystal Waters says
When are you planning on picking up the podcast again? Has life gotten in the way?
We’re planning on batching the podcast episodes between seasons at this point. We’ve determined that it’s not possible to produce a weekly video and podcast while traveling. We have not given up on it, but it needs to work with everything else.
Jonathan Logan says
I loved the podcast and I love the quote! I have another one for you.
“Our goals are often not achieved because our lives have become like a scrambled rubik’s cube, too hard to unscramble and because of that we have to be willing to take stickers off and rearrange the colors ourselves despite the rules that everyone else thinks that you should play by.”
Sandi Bergstrom says
Thanks for bringing back the podcast!! I just came across them on the website, I remember you saying you were going to get it stated again. We are in the process of getting the house ready to sell in the spring, and go find our RV and hit the road! Hubby is retired with a State Pension and Social Security for income and he wants me to find something to do online but I’m at a loss as to what that might be. I have always been a hands on employee or manager, none of my past jobs have location independence so I will be starting something from scratch! I looked into some of the work camping jobs but not sure about them due to the time commitment, hubby wants to travel every 2 or 3 weeks and jobs I’ve seen posted are for months at a time. I do a lot of crafts that I could sell but then storage might become a problem. He wants me to start a blog and you-tube channel like a bunch of y’all have but I wouldn’t know where to start, lol. We did come up with a name for our channels (when we get them started) The Home Divided, there is a long story to the name but it fits us perfectly.
So to say the least we have a plan & are putting it into action now, it’s just the income I still have to figure out.
Ben Finch says
I love the “less polished, more organic” format! I also like that you’re featuring subject matter which is less individually specific and more about the common things we all need to figure out in the daily journey of our best life. I hope that makes sense 🙂
I first discovered KYD through your YouTube channel. I was a devoted viewer for quite some time. In time I had to tune out of yours and everyone else’s content. It was all excellent content, but ultimately it created noise which distracted me from discovering my truth for building a new season of life. I needed a quiet space for a while to think and figure it out. I have figured it out, and now I’m back & so are you! I’m looking forward to future episodes as I feel they’ll be a big help in our journey. Keep up the good work! It’s much appreciated!
Craig Lavery says
Keep it up guys. We enjoy watching your you tube videos and information. Just listened to your podcast 2.0 🙂
Would love to do full time RVing
I have been taking the podcasts slow because I saw there weren’t anymore coming out. Hope you all are still planning to continue them. Great info as always!
Bryan and Kristine says
My wife Kristine and I have been binging both the YouTube and Podcasts that you folks so kindly have put out here for us to enjoy.
To your point on this episode, we have sunk our heels in and have set a date that we affectionately call, “Go!”. After listening to this episode, I feel confident that we are on the right track, because the things that you both talk about here, are the exact conversations and points lines of thinking that we are having and making and settling in on at at this point. We are 2 years, 2 months, 17 days, and 16 hours away from “Go!”. And there is a major sense of urgency that has lit a proverbial fire under our butts. Thank you for who you are, and thank you for what you do, and thank you for putting yourselves out here and for being so inspirational!
Jeff Johnson says
My wife and I just started camping again this past year as seasonal campers and I’ve finally realized what I’ve been missing in my life. I found the KYD YouTube channel when I started browsing YouTube. I want to say thank you for all the info on many topics and the fact that my wife is now on board do to your stories and videos. We’ve started decluttering our house and minds of what we thought made us happy. I unfortunately am in a job that I just can’t up and change or quit but I’m only 7 years from ret element. I can’t wait till that time comes and we can start getting to travel and meet new people that are like minded. Thanks again for the info and encouragement to get out and enjoy life.
Jeff and Sandie
James Holmes says
Watch all the videos just found the pod cast. Can I say awesome and so inspirational and educational. When can I look forward to the next? Keep it up awesome. Although I wouldn’t have have up the momentum. Lol
Maribel Romero says
Great Motivating podcast. 40-60 minutes is great because that is my work commute. I like the natural conversation format. I am still in the dreamer stage, but I have researched in you tube and rv shows. For the past 6 months I have been thinking about decluttering my house and to hear that is the first step finally resonated. I do think you should have a segment for every phase, beginners, experienced, and experts because we can all grow at every stage. Hope to hear more podcasts!
Tracy Houghton says
Hey guys…first off…thank you for letting us follow along on all your family adventures. My husband and I have enjoyed watching the Youtube channel over the past few years. However, I have just now discovered the podcast. Please keep this going!! And I for one love the format.
We are yearning to get out and RV at least 6months a year. We have 1 year left to pay off the house and get our girls settled into University life. So we are on the lookout for ideas in finding ways of earning income remotely
and just everything we can on the RV/nomadic life…which is a little bit more challenging being in Canada.
Keep up the awesome work. It is appreciated! ????????????
Thanks for the podcasts. Really enjoying listening to them when I take my dog on our morning walk. I have TONS of questions! Our family is just starting to embark on a new dream. More travel, more freedom in all areas of life. We are making space for new and intentionally NOT filling it because we don’t know where this new dream will take us quite yet. Your podcasts keep us focused and energized on what else is out there and making our dreams a reality. We have homeschooled our kids for 4 years. Bought a fifth wheel. Barely used it, but on the trips we went on loved it. Sold it, because we weren’t getting the benefits out of it. Now we have a camper that was free, so we are starting smaller so we don’t have the pressure to use things so much because we don’t have a bill of the fifth wheel all the time making us feel bad. Our homeschool kids are 8 & 11. Now everyone can read and write and do all the basics & we feel like we all have more independence. Tricia do you have podcasts specifically talking about homeschool and how you did it on the road, the choices you made per curriculum? Possible groups you can aim me to with others who do the same travel and homeschool? I am taking your advice and trying to build my friendship circles with like minded people who are positive and who think out of the box! How old were your kids when you guys first started? How do you fit schooling into your travel days? Do you guys have a book list of what you read to keep yourselves motivated and focused? I need all that!
Thanks for the time you guys put into the podcast but also your guys candor and be so relatable. It makes our dreams attainable when you guys work through the good and new and challenging instead of painting a picture of it all working out perfectly all the time!
So this is the first time ever listening to a podcast of any sort.
My wife and I were heading back from Chattanooga to Little Rock and was tired of listening to Spotify and being KYD insider’s I thought maybe we’d listen to a podcast and send how it was. I’d have to say it was nice. The length of the podcast was perfect because, well it was a long drive, but we like the conversation and based off of listening to one of your older ones after this I much prefer just getting to the point instead of the intro and the signoff. Enjoyed the topics and ideas. Thanks for what y’all are doing keeps our dreams more in the forefront of our mind instead of the grind.
Beverly Suddarth says
Loving the Podcast! We’ve watched all your youtube videos, ordered your hats, attended the Indianapolis and Tampa RV shows – although we have not yet purchased an RV. BUT, we have changed how we approach our travel! We have LOADS of free hotel nights due to excessive travel with work so we have started taking “road trips” in our little ford focus with our miniature schnauzer and staying for free with our hotel points. We’ve hit up some of the biggies – the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National park and more. The RV will come when we both retire (in about 4-5 years or so) and the frequent flyer and hotel points are no longer available. Thank you for inspiring us to get out there NOW and travel!
Please, please continue the podcasts. My wife and I find these very inspiring for our own conversations. We love the new format but we also enjoy the old style. In this episode you talk about finding the spark for your vision and these podcasts definite help with that. So thank you.
I love your podcast and YouTube channel. We have been homeschooling and traveling during my husband vacation time with all 5 of us. We have been to 11 countries and I think over half the states. We always liked the idea of traveling for longer then 3 weeks and driving the US but my husband had an office job that he loved so we did what we could and traveled with him if he had to travel for work and did off season travel so we could afford to take everyone. Then covid hit and my husband is remote for the rest of the year so we started looking and bought a class B and that is when I found you guys and I have learned so much. We are heading out soon for 2 or 3 months trip. Our dream is going to follow cell service but it will be a wonderful adventure
Bradley Osborne says
A great listen guys thank you! I’ve been pursuing my dream of being a ‘successful’ musician my whole life, and although I’m still on the journey, that is a good thing I should add, I’ve achieved some great things along the way, being signed to Columbia Records with my band for over 5 years touring the World, releasing music in the major distribution channels, working with some of the biggest names in commercial music etc, and I’m still on my journey; one thing that feels awesome is that I’ve been able to make a living from music since leaving University over a decade ago.
So I’m loving your content on all platforms guys, so inspiring to me right now, looking to grow my new music artist project and seeing new ways that I could travel while doing so 🙂
Take care and stay awesome to you all at the KYD Traveling headquarters, much love
Laura B says
Bradley, it sure does sound like you are ready to upgrade to pursuing your dream “to be an even more successful musician”; you are definitely succeeding as a musician! Congrats!
Laura B says
Marc & Tricia –
I have been watching you for a long time on YT and spent the afternoon listening from one podcast episode to another. You two are so deep! Your rich reading and growing shows up in a beautiful way. I’m planning to relisten to a couple of these! Tricia, your comments about why you keep your dream to yourself and only allowing yourself to talk about the actions you’re taking toward it was spot-on advice for me. Best to you both!
So glad to have found you guys. The timing is perfect and you are my new role models. Bringing new life to old dreams, one small step at a time, starting where I am and building momentum, not expecting it/myself to be perfect. Thank you for incorporating all of the different practical as well as psychological aspects to this process.
Jeradawn Vaughn says
Found you guys on YouTube in Feb after we bought our first camper, our 25 year dream in the making! Anyway, as one thing leads to another found the podcast. Took a listen, love the 2.0 format, the conversation, the topics and questions. It speaks to where we are at right now in our lives. Looks like you already have many validating comments, so please kept it up! Unedited and off the cuff is just fine, more real anyway. Thank you!
Alan Cavin says
Just discovered KYD this year – while doing research to buy a travel trailer. Watched all the videos, signed up to be an Insider, and now am listening to the podcasts while I drive around town running errands. Great job! In this 2.0 reboot you asked for feedback. So – I’d love to hear more of them. I like the interviews you do with other RV Full Timers and almost full timers. There are a lot of YouTubers who do RV videos – it would be great if you could interview some of them and hear their stories. And I liked your comments about making them more “talk” and less “pop” and “cool.” Just talk – no need for musical intros and interludes. Love watching each Sunday night and really like being able to follow real time with Instagram and FB. You guys are great!
Ron Stacy says
Is there more KYD podcast 2.0 beyond the intro? Am I missing something?
