About this Speaker
Hi! We’re Veronica and Denny, we first took off on our RV adventure back in November of 2013, so that will make it 7 years!
Our small family consists of us two and Mango and Kali! Our sweet awesome adventure cats and furry kids, we couldn’t imagine our nomad life without them. You can see their adventures on IG 😉 #MangoandKali
We have been living and remotely working fulltime this whole time, until now… COVID is making us get creative. We are going to slow down a bit and enjoy an area while working on a project at the same time, keeping the quality of life and outdoor balance we need!
During our 7 years plus of fulltime RVing we have lived in a 37’ class A toy hauler and then this last year in a 19’ van which we were able to take through Baja all the way down to Cabo! But now we’re looking upgrade to the perfect to us rig soon!
Being able to work remotely from home gave us the idea to explore new possibilities. Since we didn’t need to stay in one place, why not take work on the road and enjoy beautiful places while following the nice temps?
We both still work our corporate jobs on the road. Denny was already working from home while Veronica was lucky to ask if she could take hers on the road as well, 2 years later and here (or there) we are.
Through our various phases we’ve learned our balance while exploring new landscapes and towns while maintaining a work life balance.
Our camping style has overall stayed the same over the years. It includes a mix balancing work weeks and adventure weekends. We have been mainly dabbling in economy stays for the long run and keeping up with showers 😉 We use Thousand trails, State/County Parks, and Boondocking adventures on the weekends (from Jeep days to Van stealthing) but mainly a mix that keeps it comfy and on the cheap. We also prefer places where our kitties can roam free!
What we seek depends on where we are- is there a National Park close by? What does the area have to offer and need to see? We mainly look for nature and need to get our cool small town fix. Good food and brewery finds are always a plus! There are plenty of hidden gems to explore and if you’re an old mining town or small town without stop lights, then you have piqued our interest.
Our travels to Baja last winter were definitely a highlight. There was something about driving your rig to Cabo San Lucas and parking at the tip that created a pretty exhilarating moment; we realized we can push limits to explore and go further on our own. Two others would have to be the [Albuqurque] Balloon Fiesta and the solar eclipse that we shared at an Xscapers convergence and which gave us lasting memories.
The hardest curveball has been COVID, and the staying put for a bit, but other than that I don’t have many negatives, other than balancing East coast vs West coast while seeing our families.
