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.

U-Haul, our generous truck sponsor and the ultimate DIY tiny house towing vehicle.

 

Each highway trip feels like an adventure, and a bit like a parade.

We use a 17' or 20' box truck as our tow vehicle-- our mobile shed with tools, Bikes & paperwork. U-Haul is our generous truck sponsor.

Gas Station Chats

Gas Station Chats

It’s not everyday you see a house traveling 55-65 miles per hour down the road.

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. 

 

It is a heartwarming to know we are spreading smiles and starting conversations wherever we go.

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.

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.

What's remarkable about both experiences is the kindness of strangers we experienced. A stranger offered us help to fix the tire, and the shop let us hook-up our tiny for overnight parking.

We are travelers, nomads, alternative dwellers. This does not keep us from experiencing community. In fact, our community experience is incredible intimate and rich.

We are weaving a community network across the country— not defined by geographic boundaries but made strong through shared experiences, personal connections, open hearts & open minds.

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.
