It's Our First Nomadiversary!

One Year Of Living Full-Time In Our RV

We can hardly believe it's been a whole year since we moved out of our sticks-and-bricks condo in Santa Barbara. This time last year I was sitting in a lawn chair in our living room because we had just sold my favorite chair.


Over the past year, we have traveled across the US from the Mexican to the Canadian borders and back again. We've visited several states that we'd never been to before and made new friends along the way. We've seen herds of bison, elk, antelope and lots of other wildlife in their native habitats. We have had some amazing adventures so far.

One of the best things about being mobile is the having the ability to stay in a comfortable climate year-round. We spent the summer in Northern Idaho and Wyoming near the Canadian border. As summer turned to fall, we traveled south through Colorado, saw the first snow of the season in the Rockies and just enough fall colors before reaching the desert Southwest.


As I write this, we are camping at Elephant Butte Lake State Park in southern New Mexico. The weather is beautiful here this time of year and the crowds are gone. I'll be posting more photos of our latest adventures soon. I just couldn't let this day pass without commemorating our first year on the road.

Both of us have adapted very well to this tiny home on wheels. Honestly, we have everything we need and nothing we don't. Our Permanent Vacation is turning out to be everything we hoped it would be. We eagerly look forward to another year of exploration and adventure. This is the life!
