Travel Changes You In Ways You Can’t Anticipate

Travel Changes You In Ways You Can’t Anticipate

 You may have noticed we’ve been silent for the last couple weeks about our locale.  Many of you have reached out to ask what is going on, where we are, what is happening.  After much contemplation, we decided to write this post and lay it all out… in all...
Is Our Truck Bullet Proof?

Is Our Truck Bullet Proof?

Because of the big sticker on the side, I often get asked whether or not our truck is “bullet proof.”  And my answer is… well yes! Sort of… Think about it.  Get caught in a street fight between the drug runners and the police? Just hunker down...

The Many Faces of Puerto Penasco, Mexico

I have always said you need to live somewhere for a year to really appreciate it. You can’t expect to enjoy the deeper, subtle and endearing qualities that make any place special if all you’ve done is buzz into town, scarf down a few tacos, snap a few photos, then...

The Travels of Phyllis and Jonathan Copp

It’s taken me a few weeks to write this blog. Not because I didn’t have anything to say, but because I have so much to learn yet about what it all means. We knew that embarking on this adventure would introduce us to some amazing people with incredible stories. And we...

Turning a Blind Corner

Sunset in Denver This week I turned a corner and got side-swiped. I didn’t realize I was approaching it, but I should have known, considering the circumstances. Walking at break-neck pace as I always do, the turn came at me out of nowhere. I blithely followed without...
Testing The Truck in the Glamis Sand Dunes

Testing The Truck in the Glamis Sand Dunes

Jim Gets it Stuck Before We Even Leave! The Sahara or Atacama Desert (South America) is not the place to test out your vehicle’s performance four-wheeling in the sand.  It’s best to do this somewhere where local authorities are ready and waiting with their recovery...
California – I Just Can’t Quit You!

California – I Just Can’t Quit You!

Orange welcomes us with open arms Yes, I know everyone is tired of hearing of our delays, as if our lives are some FOX-TV series and season one is just not making the ratings.   But I have to admit, that being in the OC for an entire quarter has actually been pretty...
Life – It’s Complicated

Life – It’s Complicated

This morning I woke up and did what I always do: I looked at my scribbly notepad filled with pages of open “to do’s”  to see where I could make forward progress today. Pen in hand, I began by crossing off yesterday’s completed items, giving myself a...
So When do you Guys Leave?

So When do you Guys Leave?

Half Way to the North Pole! I get this question a lot.  And each time I struggle to explain that we already HAVE left.  In fact, just because we are standing in front of them, speaking English, and still in our own country, does not mean our journey has not begun....
Blazing Through the Best Parts of California

Blazing Through the Best Parts of California

Bye Bye Winery Ah… the Redwoods and the wineries, and the beaches.  There is nothing better than meandering down the California coast on a leisurely drive, stopping to taste the local varieties and gawk at the magnificent old trees towering into the sky. That was our...
Exposing the Greasy Underbelly of Truck Porn

Exposing the Greasy Underbelly of Truck Porn

Sexy Rotor Protector Ok gentlemen, I know who you are and I know what you want, as I’ve met quite a few of you in the last month. I’ve met you at gas stations, outside restaurants, even in  parking lots. You stare, your mouth agape, lick your lips, then snap a few...
The Currencies of the Digital Nomad

The Currencies of the Digital Nomad

Showers, Power, and Wifi, Oh My! It didn’t take but a few days of being on the road and officially homeless for the true “digital nomad survival needs” forces to kick in.  Albeit we were sort of cheating as we’d not even left our home town, but were suspended in time,...
