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?
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
