This is me when I’m the happiest and at my best. Chad and I went through lots of bumps before we became fulltimers in 2016 and it’s been life changing. Selling our 3 bedroom house, almost all our belongings, and learning to live a minimalistic life in a 22ft space also has it’s challenges but the freedom we have been afforded is unparalleled. After traveling the past few years around the country, and 40,000miles later- it was the best decision we could have made. ❤️⠀

The inspiration lately has been unreal. It feels like we are finally moving in the right direction towards our goals. -
The shift for us has really been community. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to surround yourself with people that relate to you and inspire you. We’ve dove into the community of nomads head first, and have a new found motivation to get things moving (literally🚐). -
The next couple of months have a lot in store for us, and we’re ecstatic to share it all.

A realization I’ve increasingly felt but only recently channeled into concrete thoughts and words: so much of our lives and societies are based on *fear*. Is this is an already obvious thing to others?
I don’t mean the acutely physiological type of fear, but rather the non-boundaried fears x that dictate lives and decisions: what if I don’t get enough of x, what if I can’t achieve x, what if others have more of x than me, what if I miss out on x, what if I regret doing/not doing x, what if I get punished now/later for x, what if x happens to someone/something I love, what if x doesn’t want/love me, what if I fail at x… and so on and so on, all the terrifying x’s from high level societal constructs and institutions down to our daily life choices, relationships and goals.
Fear is such a tremendously motivating+paralyzing survival force and therefore an integral shaper of our species evolution and individual development. Ubiquitously so - what I’m seeing in a new way is how rare it is to make choices that are truly free of fear. But when it does happen, when something is chosen/created with whatever you feel is the opposite of fear - courage/freedom/love/joy - those are the choices and turning points that lead to the biggest changes and shine the brightest in illuminating your past and future. Remember those moments in your life?
What if we did more of that, what if we live with less fear? Learn to recognize and minimize fear in decision making = gaining more true agency?
Although I’m generally not the new year’s resolutions type of person, all of this rambling is to say - if I had to formulate a resolution, it’s that I resolve to try and exclude as much fear as possible in making choices. Because I’m certain fears are weights, and we’ll fly higher with unweighted wings.

A peek inside our sexy trailer! 😍
We’ve met some very fine folks while traveling the western half of the US this past 20 months...friendly locals in cities we’ve visited, young people and old timers, camp hosts and Harvest Hosts hosts, part-time travelers and full-timers, like us!
Most recently we met Chris, @4x4_touring, the owner of Gracie, our first beautiful Airstream, now affectionately renamed Douglas! 😆 And Will & Brittany, of @trailertrashin, who redesign and remodel Airstreams and RV’s! When they came over for a visit and a tour of our home on wheels Will muttered, mostly to himself, “damn, this is sexy!” And when I sat down today, after our hike in the desert, I thought to myself, “damn, it IS sexy!” 😆
I was feeling quite overwhelmed this week. Between the whole- someone making an impersonation account about me, to not being able to talk to Josh, to single parenting and yadda yadda ya. It all felt a bit heavy. I don’t really have any encouraging words (for myself) other than, pick yourself up, buy some flowers, do some yoga, and deep clean the hell out of your kitchen💪🏼 #howistylemyfgt
My dream is finally a reality, mobile cabin mobile chairlift (aka 4x4 camper and snowmobiles). The rig performed flawlessly the past few days. Pretty amazed how well she tows, still insanely slow but very stable. I forgot the sleds we’re back there and when it started to snow I just locked the hubs and kept on truckin’ #yotahome4x4#snorader

Today is an extremely special day. My hauler is virtually finished and this afternoon I get to share it with 500 other full timers, as well as give a presentation on how to reno their own rigs.
These are the people who get me. These are the people who share my wanderlust. These are the people who have also made some serious sacrifices in order to let their gypsy souls run wild. To be able to share my beloved hauler, and knowledge, with them is giving me all the feels 🖤
Welcome to a place where nature and luxury are one and the same. #werribeachholidaypark
More than a getaway, this is home away from home in picturesque Gerringong.
Choose between a line-up of cabins, or bring your tent or van and settle into one of our sites.
This isn’t a joke, totally serious beeswax! Somepawdy is gifting, yes gifting, our little family one of these RVs!! *faints like sixteen times*
It’s not too good to be true, it’s in great condition (this is not the exact one), no strings attached, it’s really happening!
We will be picking it up after Ma takes some lessons and is confident she could do this, so in about 3 weeks 😳 Can you believe it?? I told you a real live angel!! They want to remain anonymous so I can’t tell you guys who it is but just know the gratitude that is coming from Ma is crazy huge amounts forever. It’s so incredible, we are still in shock at the generosity *faints again* One of the things Ma wants to be clear about is that this incredible gift will be used to do more good things for others. We are making lots of plans! There’s so much to do and Ma will be working extra hard to make sure we have gas dollars and parking places and insurance and Good Sam and AAA for RVs and sheesh there’s lots to do! #soblessed#grateful#thankyou#angelsamongus#generous#wow#blownaway#doinggood#excitingtimes#safaritrek#rvlife#beansthewhippet
Our ”American Dream” well so we thought anyway. We had just welcome our first baby, a beautiful baby girl named Aria. The lease on the house we had been renting was coming up for renewal. We didn't want to keep throwing away money into a house that we hated. The only option we saw and are made to believe is the best option, buying your own house. Now, once we came to this conclusion we started looking. We knew the area we wanted and had a few must-haves on our list. Found what we thought was the perfect house and we ”won” the bid war. We bought our American Dream Oct 31,2017. Fast forward to now Jan 17, 2019. We are now a family of 4 and are selling everything we own and will be renting out our home. We are setting out on an adventure living full-time in fifth-wheel. We want to take Y'all on this journey with us. We want to explore the greatness of the United States and to find a place we want to call home again. #americandream#adventureawaits#nomads#rvlife#countdown#newchapter
I was thinking today about childhood dreams. My biggest desires were to be a wife, a mother and to travel. I am truly blessed to be living my dreams with these four amazing people. They are my favorites.
This was the most memorable part of the Waco zoo, not the leopards or the cheetahs or the elephants, but the duck. It could have flown away at any time, but it chose to stay and fight like a true hero.
This is also what happens when my family has the zoo to ourselves.

One more day and things are gonna change!! Start with your insides. Grab yourself a good doctor that will check all your levels and tell you the #truth. From your thyroid to your liver. From your liver to your kidneys. From your kidneys to your testosterone.
YESS!! Women have testosterone! That doesn’t mean you will have big muscles and giant jaw bones. Don’t let the mainstream media scare you! Women don’t have the capability to get HUGE because we don’t have the goods on the inside to make us that way. You gotta get pharmaceuticals to do that and NO ONE like that!
What it means is that this is something you NEED! Something that will make your body start working like a well built machine. The way we want it to work. Like CLOCKWORK!! Your numbers can “look good” but do they “look good” for YOU?! You can have GREAT numbers for your age but who wants to FEEL their age if they can feel younger and in their PRIME?? I know I want to feel 21 again!! Don’t you?! Tomorrow starts #myjourney to a clean slate of health!! Follow me and find out what YOU can do to get the results you want!
