Hero dirt in ColoRADICAL

Once we were back in Colorado, we settled at one of our spots. Far enough from the city, but close enough to get shit done. Views of the mountains and front range and only the sound of wind and nearby animals. I think it only took a few days before we got hit with the bomb cyclone and the sound…

Girls can do anything!

These two bad b’s and I made an 18hr journey to Denver to meet up w/Derek and be home for a bit. I had never driven the RV more than 3 hours alone but with the help of these copilots, we made it!  They’ve quickly learned about rvlife and all of the complicated shit that pops up when you least…

RV locks are a complete POS

If you’re sitting next to 20 RV’s, chances are that 6-8 of you will use the same damn key. Seems safe, right? IMO, factory locks for RVs are useless. Same goes for the storage locks. They break easily, and with only a few key combos, they are just for looks. I equate them to a cable lock for bikes. 😂…

Our August Detour to Texas

Cancer’s a Bitch There we were, chillin’ in Oregon when we received news that during mom’s routine colonoscopy, they had located a large mass and needed to perform emergency surgery the next day.  While my heart told me to race to the nearest airport, my mind told me to stop spinning and breathe. After all, I have an amazing stepdad…

Whistler, dirt time required

The drive into Whistler was tough. With 13% grades over two hours, it was an exhausting drive and I’m thankful Derek was handling the tough terrain. The road winds alongside the turquoise river for most of the way with no service. Once again, all is quiet in the woods….until our brakes overheated and started smoking. WTF can happen next? While…

Solitude in Glacier NP Canada

Most often, we have no idea where we will end up and I love this lack of planning. It’s a thrill and yet the most stressful part of this experience…especially when you add work commitments into the equation. It causes discomfort but it also allows you to explore and see where the day takes you. The trip between Banff &…

Beeline for Banff

From Idaho, we entered Canada and made a beeline for Banff. While it could have been a shit show of tourists, every inch of Banff was impressive. We tried our best to avoid the crowds, which can be impossible in July. Most tell you to visit popular sites early in the morning. However, with the sun not setting until 10-10:30PM,…

One Month in Bend!

We would have loved to post more often during our 30-day stay in Bend, Oregon, since we could have filled a book with all of our stories and experiences. Instead, we spent quality time taking care of ourselves, working, and having a ton of fun. The good news is that this presents an opportunity to catch everyone up on our…

Workin’ For a Livin’

It would be pretty friggin’ sweet if we were both “Trustafarians” and could lazily float between locations without worrying about money. But, we have bills to pay and need to earn a living, just like everyone else in the real world. To accomplish this, Jamie produces shows for her company O2 Events, while Derek writes for his cycling blog at…

The Sun Sets in Helena

Helena, Montana – June 16–17, 2019 Note: This one’s written solely by Derek. Other than going through a decent-size thunderstorm a few miles north of Yellowstone, the drive from Jackson, WY to Helena, MT was largely uneventful, although we all had a good time. Once we arrived, however, the situation quickly devolved. From Calm to Chaos High Expectations Nestled between…
