Meet Melissa & Don
We are a fun, witty couple who have been together since 1999; yes we survived the Y2K Apocalypse! We have also survived out of state job relocation’s, loss of loved ones and Melissa's health changes (gastroparesis, IBS, allergies,...).
We quickly realized life is short and to make the most of every day. Our weekends started off by exploring all the back-roads and taking hiking opportunities as they came up while living near Glacier NP. But we wanted more - to explore more and experience new cultures, but were seldom able to because of the corporate world stranglehold.
With lots of thought, we decided to sell off everything and purchase a 5th-wheel, we call Bailey, to begin a different type of lifestyle.
Now mobile, we will be able to start our next adventure whenever and wherever we want.
Or so we thought!
We live in an RV full-time
In January 2018 we purchased the Bayhill 5th wheel RV and have been living full-time in it ever since.
Our original plan was to hit the road full-time. However, life happened and a 2020 (pandemic), forcing us to be stationary.
Regardless, the years have not been boring! We learned quickly to modify the RV to stay warm, have spent hours researching products when things break, and performed general upgrades to make RV life more comfortable.
We are here to provide you with: product reviews, general maintenance, modification, repair, and the adventures in-between.
Our truck camper for adventures
Quickly we realized that the places we wanted to camp, our 35 foot RV would not fit. Lots of National Parks and State Parks have size limits. We also enjoyed traveling down dirt roads for boondocking opportunities, which can be difficult for 5th wheels.
In 2022, we purchased a used Caribou truck camper to be able to go to all the places we wanted. It has been amazing!
I simply hope it's worth it for us to juggle maintenance and repairs on two recreational vehicles.
