Welcome to our blog!
We decided to start this blog as a way to share our adventures, thoughts and experiences -the good, the bad & the funny- with friends, family & the people we meet along the way. So! Welcome to our space – our virtual living room, if you will!
We are in our late 20’s and travel the country full-time. We decided in March of 2018 that a sedentary lifestyle wasn’t for us. We are transient, nomadic souls who have a lust for change and crave adventure.
So! Grab a drink and click around! This blog is relatively new so don’t be too critical. I’m still getting the hang of this. 🙂
MEET THE FLEET
RV # 1 – THE TOY HAULER
The first rig in our fleet is our Grand Design Momentum who is accompanied by our F350 dually – our dynamic duo. She is 42 feet long and is our main home on wheels. She is a hefty girl weighing in at a whopping 17,500lbs (fully loaded – yes that includes both gas tanks, full fresh tank & the RZR)! Our toy of choice these days is our RZR Turbo ‘Gimp.’
RV # 2 – OUR VINTAGE AIRSTREAM
Meet my Sweet Caroline! She is our 1973 Airstream Excella 500 and she is the most beautiful tin can I have ever laid eyes on. She is going through a complete ‘ shell-off’ renovation. Her future plans are to take us to Alaska whenever we have the time to finish her. She will be accompanied by my Ford Raptor.
2018 Ford F350 Dually for Blake. 2019 Ford Raptor for Chelsea.
THE TOY – “GIMP”
This is Gimp, our 2019 RZR Turbo – she takes us on adventures all over the country, from sand dunes to mountain lakes to some rock crawling. She makes us very happy!
MEET THE HUMANS
Blake grew up in Indiana. In his prior life he was a master tech for BMW and a service advisor. Nowadays, he is a software engineer working remotely from the comforts of our RV. He loves all things tech & starts more projects than he can finish. He loves exploring but loathes hiking (so much so that we ended up buying a RZR as a compromise). He is the fixer of all things that break and he can’t cook.
My name is Chelsea and I’m the one who writes this blog. I don’t really know what to say about myself so I’m just going to ramble off some facts. I’m 29 years old and I grew up in (upstate) New York. I drive a Raptor and lift weights. I love country music & I read… a lot. I love smoothies and take way too many pictures. I’ll try anything once as long as it doesn’t involve spiders or snakes.
MEET THE PACK
Riley, my 16 year old Chihuahua – also referred to as ‘critter’ or ‘critter ma’ – is/was the matriarch of this family. She does what she wants, when she wants to. She is happiest when she is napping in the sun. She hates vitamins but loves her ‘old lady pills.’ She has been with me since I was 14. She is the best little love of my life. – Riley has since passed. 6011 days I had with my little love. I miss you.
SIR FRANKLIN THE FIRST OF HIS NAME, SLAYER OF BONES, & KNIGHT OF THE NIGGITS
(That is a ‘Game of Thrones’ reference for those of you who are huge fans like I am) 😉
The Sir is a 3.5 year old French Bulldog who loves all things food. He also loves his critter and his puppy. He is happiest when he is on his patio with a bone or watching his favorite show with hims Mom. He also pees like a girl.
Talulah is the newest addition to the pack. She is a 2 year old French Bulldog and she packs a whole lotta sass in her 20lb body. She loves her bones and sleeping under the covers. She is happiest when she is basking in the sun with her humans in sight.
