Day 36: Went to Walmart and found my sunglasses that Matt sat on and broke, then checked out the Coppola winery which had so many amazing views and memorabilia. Then off to Trader Joe’s and back to the RV for laundry and an awkward encounter with a family from the Netherlands when Jack accidentally let go of their kid’s hand in the slide 😬 Dinner, and a movie to prepare us for Alcatraz #homeiswhereyouparkit#gorving#rvliving#rvlife#twokidsandarv#rvthereyet#flackventure#coppolawinery
[WASHINGTON 7/10]: Feeling really excited to finally spend a weekend sleeping outside again! It’s been to way too long and I can’t wait fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of nature.
I never expected living inside of a house to feel so restricting, but since living in a rolling tiny home - I’m definitely a little salty that our house here in CT doesn’t have wheels too.
It’s funny, while we were on the road, I really missed our spacious home (so much room for activities!)... and now that we live inside said home, all I want to do is pull the RV out of the backyard and drive clear across the country. I guess this new chapter of of our lives will have a little bit of both, and even though I’d prefer more travel and less work - I’ll definitely take it! .
Do/would you prefer a rolling home? Or one that’s stationary? Big or tiny?
One of our favorite books to read is The Rabbit Listened, by Cori Doerrfeld. It's a beautiful book about the importance of being a good listener, told in a way young children can really understand. My trusty @pegandawl bag carried all our books, as usual. I go everywhere with it! Their bags are handmade and built to last forever. I don't know if we've been on any adventure without this one.
Exploring tide pools has been a favorite activity of mine since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by the variety of life that seems to get trapped in the puddles between rocks. We lucked out finding a last minute campground with a Passport America discount in Coos Bay. Eliza and I headed to the beach to play and stumbled upon some super cool tide pools right at our campground! Tons of green anemones, mussels, snails, barnacles and tiny fish. We even found a crab and a sea star! I was like a kid in a candy store and I hope that enthusiasm for exploring nature when you least expect it will rub off on Eliza, too!

Due to our waterless method, MEDS is fully mobile! This customer needed his @lamborghini detailed while he was visiting Calgary. Unlike our hotel partners, the hotel he was staying at wouldn’t allow a detail in the parking lot because they were unaware of our natural products and waterless method. That didn’t stop us from providing him his premium detail package. Luckily we were able to find a suitable location to shine this beauty up… needless to say, we got a few stares 😉
We caught up with Conor Daly this week as he prepares for his go in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500! He graciously agreed to answer some questions.. (admittedly some of the questions are a little ridiculous) Enjoy! Video link in bio.
We're proud to hook up Conor and a number of other drivers with some sweet motorhome accommodations at the track this month. We can hook YOU up too! See us for all your RV, Travel Trailer, & Pop-Up Camper needs! Video link in our profile.
May 21, 2019: Warmed up a little, now 43*. Still pretty windy outside. We stayed in the motor coach today. Watching a movie while laying in bed with Tinder by my side. Sherry and Skylar are in bed too, just not seen in the picture.
It looks like 1,000 of you have decided to follow this account. Thank you! I hope you enjoy my content.
I guess it’s time I make my introduction. My name is Greg. I’m the guy behind this account. I’ve lived in this Airstream full-time since June of last year when I decided to take what I call a sabbatical from my career in education. Currently, I write an education blog, so if you are interested in reading my thoughts on today’s education system and how to restore joy in learning and work, go to https://insearchofprofoundknowledge.com/ (link in bio). I’m from Texas, and love it there. I just don’t like the extreme heat and humidity in the summer, so I travel to cooler, dryer climates in the mountains. So, if you like airstream pictures in the mountains, you are in luck. My favorite so far is Grand Teton National Park. I’ll be there at some point this summer.
Anyway, thanks for following my account and my journey. Happy travels, y’all!

When you find that place that you just can’t let go... your sad to leave it and it continues to call to you once you’ve moved on and you think I just want a little more... so a few weeks later you drop some of the plans you had and go back. Sedona had that pull on me. I’m so excited we came back for a bit and this time not in a RV park but into the open lands of the red rocks. We have taken on our first real boondocking adventure and it’s as amazing as I knew it would be. 🏜 I feel pretty certain this is a first of many more to come.
I boondocked around Zion and Bryce Canyons the last couple of weeks and loved it. This was my first trip to the area, and I was amazed by its beauty. I’m very thankful our Federal Government provides free camping to us on BLM and National Forrest lands. This enables me to stay out longer, and I can spend more money in the local communities (sometimes more than I would like). This is part of what I like about living this nomadic life. I briefly experience what it’s like to live somewhere else. It’s always new and exciting. I’m never bored seeing the same things everyday. Each area I visit has their unique characteristics, yet there is enough commonality where I feel like home. And the best part is I meet new and interesting friends along the way (even for this introvert). If I haven’t met you yet on the road, I hope to someday. I just don’t want to meet all of you at the same time. That would be a little overwhelming.
