Inside Our Tiny House Road Trip Life
47,000 miles traveled & counting!
Three years on the road and another ahead of us (perhaps a lifetime).
Emma Wood State Park in Ventura, CA
Our tiny house road trip has been an extraordinary experience!
The unexpected conversations and friendships that often form with those we meet at stops along the way is the one of the top highlights of our trip.
It’s not everyday you see a house traveling 55-65 miles per hour down the road. Each highway trip feels like an adventure, and a bit like a parade. There are always delightful reactions from fellow travelers, occasional honks, waves and countless thumbs up and picture taking. And pulling over for gas typically means chatting with curious bystanders. The movement is rapidly expanding and tiny houses are featured heavily on many popular shows and on a growing number of blogs...
But surprisingly few people have experienced them in-person.
It's heartwarming to know we are spreading smiles and starting conversations where ever we go.

Our traveling home is both our comfy ticket to adventure and delightful way to meet new people.
An epic road trip wouldn't be an adventure without a misadventure or two...
Like the time we got flat tire on the way to Burning Man, or the time our wheels seized up and we had to limp it to a repair shop.

Tiny house & Airstream community in downtown Las Vegas:
Llamalopolis, AKA the airstream Park in downtown Las Vegas
We loved having neighbors! Fun, kind, fascinating neighbors-- full-time & part-time residents of Llamalopolis (or Airstream park), part of the Downtown Project (visit their site to learn more about their inspiring work). This a one-of-a-kind micro community that feels like a big, warm family including kids of all ages & a wide assortment of animals (chickens, alpacas, dogs, cats). The shared common areas act as an extension of living space for each resident & their respective sleek Airstreams or cozy Tumbleweed Tiny House Company house. The air is filled with music & smoke from the fire pits. The style & vibe is reminiscent of Burning Man. The night is always young here & unexpected conversations are just around the corner. We're discovery an extraordinary way of life, and we couldn't feel more welcomed & at home in this incredible Vegas community.
