We’re a small team of wanderers who love getting off the beaten path, whether by bike, car, or our own two feet. We have some rad vehicles, and we geek out on seeing your van builds, customized RVs, overland rigs, and gear. We also really nerd out on the latest tech, so we like to share a lot of that here, too. Lastly, we’ve figured a lot of stuff out after decades of testing equipment, vehicles, camping gear, bike racks, roof boxes, and all sorts of other stuff…and we want to pass that knowledge along to you.
Tyler & Kristi
We’ve been traveling the country together since marrying in ’98. After starting a sports nutrition brand, we roamed from mountain bike race to triathlon to expo and back, all over the U.S. to promote the drink. As that project turned into other projects, and then we had kids, we kept rolling to visit family, national parks, and visit friends.
Our Toyota Sienna has more than 200,000 miles on it and has gone from Florida to California too many times to count, and a handful of trips into Canada. We put about 30k miles on our Thor Outlaw LS 37′ Class A toy hauler motorhome taking it cross country numerous times, too (and also into Canada).
Our latest ride is a custom Ford Transit from VanDoit, complete with Backwoods Adventure Mods bumpers and storage, Thule/Tepui rooftop tent and awning, and a Transit Offroad suspension lift kit. It’s only RWD, but that hasn’t stopped us from overlanding through Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and beyond.
And yeah, we still have the Sienna…keep an eye out for travel tips for minivan-life, too!
