A bit about us:

We’re Patrick and Lindsey, and along with our daughter Em we’re ditching the 9 to 5 in exchange for more location independence, time, and adventure. As lovers of the outdoors, experienced budget travelers, and avid tacklers of all things DIY, we recently transformed our vintage Toyota Pickup into a truck camping overland adventure mobile! And now it's time to hit the road, and find new adventures as a truck camping family!
