We've met a wide variety of people since we hit the road. They're interesting, generous, and fun. It's these fellow travelers that help create a community despite us always being on the move.
Below are fellow nomads we’ve met. We've listed their websites/Instagram/Facebook so that you have the opportunity to read their stories and get to know them, too.
We got an Instagram message from Shannon shortly after arriving in Moab saying she was also in town. Did we want to meet up? Heck yes! Even better, she was interested in mountain biking for the first time. So we let her borrow one of our bikes and brought her out riding! (October 2018)
A Van Named Rose
Al and Beth live in their Sprinter van with their sweet older dog name Diesel. We met them at Maple Canyon, UT through mutual road friends and spent time climbing together. (April 2017)
Megan contacted us for a Live Small | Ride Free sticker. After she received the sticker Megan sent us a really nice hand-written note. It turned out her and her husband, Ian, are in the process of hitting the road with their dog, Brewer, and cat, Monster. While we were in Washington (where they were living) we met up and spent the day hanging out. (October 2016)
Jerud met Jeanette and Eric when he went to dump and fill up our fresh water tank in La Verkin, UT while Tybee and I were back at camp saving our boondocking spot. Eric recognized the Toaster and realized that we knew some of the same people as he pulled up behind Jerud at the gas station. The meeting was brief, but we hope to see them again sometime down the road. (April 2016)
Road It Up
Catherine, JF, their three daughters (Aïsha, Mara and Matilde), and dog (Java) live in an awesome red 1970s Wanderlodge towing their Westy. They are avid climbers and mountain bikers. We met them while boondocking in Tucson, AZ in January 2016.
Jennifer, Karl, and their three kids (Sarah, Ellie & David) is another family we met at the same time. These two families met on the road a year ago and traveled together for over 2 years.
Victor, Kristen, Massimo and Levi are in the process of becoming full-timers! Their second trip with their Airstream was to Borrego Springs. (December 2015)
The Wandering Heffalump
Joe and Stacey are a Canadian couple living out of their army green unimog. We initially met them in Borrego Springs, and then hung out together in Yukon and British Columbia. They’re currently traveling through South America. (December 2015)
Bikes and Rivets
Eric, Aaren and their three kids rolled into Borrego Springs with their Airstream and back of the truck full of bikes. (December 2015)
Chris travels in his Airstream on weekends and during his vacations. He and his two dogs were one of our neighbors at Borrego Springs. (December 2015)
A Guy, A Dog, A Rig
Brian showed up to happy hour with a growler of beer to share with everyone at Borrego Springs. So of course we liked him right off the bat. Stella, his super sweet dog helped. (December 2015)
We met Vince during happy hour our first night at Borrego Springs for the New Year’s get-together. He was our tour guide when we rode into town together on bikes – him on his trike. (December 2015)
Ching had been following Kerri on Instagram for a long time before we finally met her and Bryon (her dog) at Borrego Springs for the New Year’s get-together. (December 2015)
Mary and Barbara
We’ve known Mary and Barbara for years! Mary and Ching used to work together and go mountain biking together before she and Barbara left Asheville to become full-timers. Barbara also helped us shop for our RV. Simply put – we love them!
