On our way from the Petrified Forest to the Grand Canyon Grand Canyon to Zion (Grand Canyon post coming up!), we stopped in Page, Arizona. We hadn’t really researched the area and thought we’d just be spending a quick overnight in the Wal-Mart parking lot before moving along. It turned out that the area is… Read More Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend
We had a couple options for how to get from Santa Fe to the Grand Canyon, but we knew it was going to take us a couple days. So we decided to take I-40 as there looked to be a number of free or cheap campsites along the way. Petrified Forest National Park also just happened to be about half way and we would get to bag another National Park.… Read More Petrified Forest National Park
While we were staying in Santa Fe, I was talking on the phone to my grandmother who mentioned that when they were visiting the area a few years ago, they stopped by some museum about the atomic bombs and nuclear stuff. That sounded really interesting so I did some googling and found the National Museum… Read More The National Nuclear Museum
We’ve talked about some of the places that would be near the top of our places to live before but Santa Fe is definitely on the list now. We loved it and we definitely want to go back. Santa Fe started out in our heads as just “a city near Taos where we could get… Read More Santa Fe, New Mexico
Taos was a cool little town, and our first introduction to New Mexico, and in many ways, to the Southwest. We got to put another state sticker on our map- woohoo! Even more exciting, our friend Brad came to visit us for a few days, which was really nice and sorely lacking in our lives.… Read More Taos, New Mexico
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?
