• Colorado 14ers: Getting Acclimated

    August 24, 2017

    It’s been a long time goal of mine to climb the Grand Teton. I spent the last week prepping on some of Colorado’s 14ers. Join me for an adventure or two!

  • üCamp17: Photos and Video

    August 7, 2017

    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.

  • T@G & T@B Trailers: 2018 model tours

    July 10, 2017

    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.

  • Walking a Mandy Mile

    June 27, 2017

    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.

  • 2017 Official nüCamp Factory Tour!

    June 14, 2017

    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.

  • Finding free time while full timing

    May 22, 2017

    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.

  • Home is where you park it: How I became a Nomad

    April 18, 2017

    Home is where you park it. No truer statement could be said for a nomad – something I am proud to call myself. I can not deny, however, that it wasn’t the easiest leap of faith to make, and it is a decision that many eager spirits long to make.

  • Interview with a Full Time Teardropper

    Okay okay… so you missed my awesome-tastic feature spot on the Escapees RV Club webinar series last month?? I’ll forgive you. This time.

  • Fitness while Full Timing: Get out of your Funk!

    March 29, 2017

    We all suffer from it from time to time. A funk. A slump. A momentary weakness in our resolve. But it’s okay! As long as we recognize these moments before they turn into the goliath known as depression, we can turn it around. And it’s time. Time to get out of my funk and into my fit!
