I’ve attended my fair share of trailer rallies over the past couple of years, so I thought I knew exactly what to expect at this event. For the most part I was right – good food, good friends, and a boatload of great new ideas. Yet there were a few things I was still surprised by, namely the peaceful atmosphere and the picturesque landscape. However, by far the most surprising thing was the single most common word used by all the campers to describe one another: family.
As if living in a 70 sq. ft. “house” wasn’t difficult enough, add a second person and learn how to really prioritize the things that are important in life! Join me and Kendrick as we merge our two tiny dwelling lives into one. Some things are just worth a risk.
As you all know, I spent the best year of my life living in a tiny T@G teardrop trailer. When the time came to move on, I took Phoenix back home to the nüCamp factory in Sugarcreek, OH and picked up my new Outback T@B, Rocky.
The nature of my lifestyle breeds very little downtime to reflect on my experiences. Sometimes it feels like life moves a mile a minute, and if we don’t force ourselves to breath for a minute, we might just wake up 10 years later.
I often tell people that my life flows like a book. A series of chapters – short stories, really – roughly bound together to create the larger volume of my life. Each week I find myself in a new place, for a new reason, sitting in a new situation. The characters and settings change while I remain. As such, my stories with Phoenix were coming to a close. I am not sad. I will remember each night with fondness as I eagerly pursue new adventures by new means. And so, it was time to meet Rocky.
When people ask me what it’s like to live on the road, I tell them it’s pretty much as they imagine it might be. It’s wonderful, amazing, life-changing, and… difficult.

I am often asked questions about how I accomplish many of the daily tasks that “normal” (or stationary) people do. The majority of the time, the answer is the simplest one – I do it just like you. But every now and then I do have a little secret…
But warmth is something we can’t deny ourselves, even if we’ve committed to the most simplest of lives. Watch my most recent video blog to see what I’ve been up to in the snow, and how Phoenix manages to keep me warm!
Whether I have had the honor to meet you face to face, or merely through this virtual world of letters that form words, I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without your support.
