Locations in this post


Martinsville, IN

Still in Indiana at the start of 2017. The renovation took nearly 7 months total and we left Indiana at the end of March. Want to see the whole process?
Airstream Renovation.


Knoxville, TN

Had to stop in and see Jon's family before we headed back out. Also had quite a few loose ends to tie up. We spent the week here in non-stop catching up with people and getting stuff done mode. Whew!


Earthborn Pottery

Our first official boondocking spot was with an awesome family in Alabama. They let us park at their pottery studio, taught our kids how to throw on a wheel and showed us so much kindness.


Meaher State Park

Stopped back at one of our favorite parks in Alabama for a night of waterfront breeze, cleaning the fresh tank and preparing for our first long term boondocking gig.


Big Daddy's Grill

We used Boondocker's Welcome to find this rad little restaurant outside of Fairhope, AL. Which is a rad little town in it's own right. The owner plans on traveling full time in the near future and was so awesome. 4 days off solar and buckets of water got us prepared for our week stay at the beach with no hookups.


Slidell, LA

Stayed overnight at a wildlife preserve on the way to the beach. Had amazing tacos at Tacos and Beer and met up with some traveling friends.


Rutherford Beach

Free camping on the beach! First day was gorgeous. Then the horrible weather rolled in. We toughed it out for two days until the tornado warnings showed up. Headed back into town and cut the beach trip short :(


Sulphur, LA

Had to spend the rest of the week here instead of the beach. Not bad, though. Got to charge our batteries up, get some decent showers and dry things out. Humidity at Rutherford was so bad everything was wet inside.


Huntsville, TX

Overnighted at Huntsville State Park and wished we could have stayed longer. Beautiful spot with a huge play area for the kids and even met another traveling family next door!


Weatherford, TX

Made a special stop to meet up with the family that sold us the Airstream and show them the renovation.


Quitaque, TX

Spent the week at Caprock Canyons State Park hiking, biking and excited for low humidity!


Canyon, TX

Hung out at a beautiful Harvest Hosts winery (Bar Z Winery) for the weekend waiting to get our brake controller looked at on Monday.


Roswell, NM

Stayed off the grid and went into town to explore the extra-terrestrial :)


Santa Fe, NM

Stayed at an Alpaca Farm and then some BLM land on the Cochiti Lake. Explored Bandalier National Monument, Tent Rocks and a bunch of museums in the city.


Las Cruces, NM

With a cold front bringing sucky weather to anywhere close by, we drove 4 hours south to Las Cruces where the camping was free and the weather was warm.


Phoenix, AZ

Moochdocked at some friends' house, bought a ton of stuff on Amazon and ran way too many errands while we were in civilization.


Sedona, AZ

Boondocked overlooking the incredible mountain range and hiked to our hearts' content.
