After Mesa Verde, the next logical place to go was Durango, CO. Durango was right up the road and we needed some work done on the RV. We went into Durango with some high expectations as a town we’d really enjoy and while it was fine, we were pretty disappointed overall. I think our impression… Read More Durango, CO
Being truly nomadic while working is an odd experience. With our jobs earning us plenty of money without ever needing to be in a particular place, we’re free to live wherever we want to in the world. This feels really odd. Most people in the US live where they do because that is where they… Read More Where Would You Live?
Did you know that Mesa Verde is the only National Park in the U.S. dedicated to the history of humans? It’s true! It makes Mesa Verde not only beautiful, as most parks are, but also unique and powerful. I’ll do my best to tell you about it, but you should definitely visit here if you… Read More Mesa Verde National Park
We pay $80/month to have “unlimited” access to the biggest US cellular carriers and use our phones as a backup with Google Fi. We also use a cell booster to increase the range we can get good signal from a tower. This, plus very accommodating jobs, allows us to work (and stream Netflix 🙂 ) from almost anywhere in the continental US.… Read More How We Get Internet As Digital Nomads
Way back in May and June of 2016, when we first hit the road, we were really deer in the headlights. I’m not saying that we are seasoned vets now, but we have settled in to road life. Not surprisingly, it takes quite a while to really find your rhythm and preferences for traveling. But,… Read More Year 2 Mindset- What’s Changed?
One of the events that we’d had on our schedule for months was the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. It’s one of the biggest bluegrass festivals in the country and has an awesome vibe. It’s a four day festival but we only got to go on Sunday. The sun was shining, the scenery was beautiful, the beer… Read More Telluride, Colorado
Nik is being slow with his Telluride post so I am skipping him. Ouray! Ouray is in the Southwestern mountains of CO. It’s pronounced “YOUR-ay” and has incredible steep mountains on all sides. You feel like you are sitting at the bottom staring up in any direction you turn. Prior to European-Americans settling in the… Read More Ouray, Colorado
On some of our other Solar Panel posts I’ve mentioned Handy Bob Solar as a good resource for people thinking about adding solar panels to their RVs. I recently was re-reading some of his stuff and realized that it isn’t very beginner friendly and some of his advice is getting out of date. So here… Read More Handy Bob Solar Summary
We visited Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park a couple weeks ago. It’s a newer park- it was upgraded from a National Monument to a National Park in 1999. It’s not very large, but it is VERY striking. We explored the South Rim, which had some good BLM land for camping nearby. It was… Read More Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
On our way from Vail to Montrose, we spent a night in Rifle, CO. I knew next to nothing about it, other than it was roughly halfway down the road. We spent our first night in a Walmart parking lot, which was actually far more pleasant than I was expecting. The next day while Nik… Read More Rifle Falls State Park
