We’re jus two people who love the outdoors and adventures.
We have both always been extreme opposites but the one thing we’ve always agreed on was our love for exploring our planet.
We’ve always said, “when it gets down to it; Taking care of our earth shouldn’t be something that gets mixed up in politics. It shouldnt matter if you’re republican, democrat, liberal, conservative, Christian, Muslim or atheists;
Enjoying and taking care of nature is something that should go hand-in-hand and that we should all just naturally agree on and do.”
Leave politics out of nature.
We’ve always wanted a full time life of travel.
We’re both pretty minimalistic when it comes to needing “stuff” and both our jobs require travel and remote work; so the tiny house life style, just made sense for us and always looked appealing.
When it came down to choosing a vehicle, that was all Trevor.
I would have been content with a Skoolie or Van. But Trevor wanted something that would allow us to go anywhere and do anything. (Park on a beach, off road in the desert or climb up a mountain)
He is also the biggest dreamer and extremist I know, so it should have come to no surprise when he purchased our Rig, at a Military auction.
When we first purchased ‘Wazimu’ (which means ‘Madness’ in Swahili) he was just a beige, flatbed, M1078 troop carrier, that looked like he had already been to the desert a time or two.
So, that’s when the real work began. Trevor tore off the back and started our build from scratch.
He built the complete shell of our home by welding steel together in a box-like frame, wiring/electric/plumbing, then added installation, then the steel “skin”.
The inside of our home has a full kitchen; sink, stove top and oven.
A complete bathroom; toilet and shower ( that is large enough for me to sit down and take a bath!)
We have a queen size bed that comes down through a crank system, and lays across our kitchen table and U-shaped sitting area.
No space was wasted, we have storage in all the seating area’s and just about everywhere you look.
There is also a crawl through space that leads from the house to the cab or the truck, which is perfect for the dogs and I to crawl through throughout the day when we’re on a long road trip.
We’ve only been on the road since February, but so far can’t imagine going back to our old lifestyle.
Life on the road has been good to us and we’ve enjoyed just about every stop along the way.
We hope to cover every state in the next few years and have no plans to slow down anytime soon!
