Working on Exploring

Retired life where he’s just the driver

Where

What’s in store for 2022? We’re not quite sure how much we’ll be traveling in 2022. Much depends on our future build project in Idaho moving forward or not. I’m definitely antsy to get underway! Plus with the current state of fuel and inflation, it may be a good year to squat in one place longer than usual!

So far we’ve traveled rountrip toArizona for the 3rd Annual Truck Camper Rally in Quartzsite, then to Phoenix and returned via Parker, AZ. Loved taking the longer way home to CA and spent an afternoon checking out the unique Desert Bar.

Road Travels 2021

Here’s our Highlights of 2021 travel plus video! This is the first year of using the new custom rig and Maximus did not disappoint. This has a state by state quick view of our travels and was a fun way to look back with the year. Two areas we spent quite a bit of time in were Idaho and Wyoming. Scroll down further for short list of my favorite 2021 Travel Blog post links!

The 2021 Map looks like this:

RoadTrip 2018-2021

Camping, seeing and doing spots on our perpetual road trip is shown on this cool interactive map. We embarked back in the fall of 2018 to take a journey in the Ford F350 + 2000 Lance Camper test bed and continued through Spring 2020. Maximus (our DIY 4×4 Camper) has been our tiny home on wheels since it rolled out of the shop early 2021.

Camping, siteseeing, hiking, kayaking places!

IdahoSpent quite a bit of time here in 2021 working in exploring and camping while we were back and forth to a new property we recently purchased. We continued working to deliver videos in addition to the blog posts throughout the year. What started out as a few camper build videos has now morphed into life in Maximus.

WyomingWe finally found opportunies to kayak and discovered two beautiful stretched of the North Platte River.
