Two adventurers on a quest to find hidden corners few experience

March 2017.... Been delayed posting any updates here for a few reasons, but the important one is that we completed our year long journey living in Teardrop! We traveled over 36,000 miles, visited 2 countries and 44 states in America. Our only regret is we didn't start sooner.

Now we are on to our second phase, finding land and starting a homestead and farm. Though the details are still not complete, we have narrowed our choice to West Virginia, specifically the counties of Preston, Tucker, Randolph, Pocahontas, and parts of Pendleton, Grant and Hardy. We are also not opposed to some bordering areas of Virginia and Pennsylvania or a very special plot in Maryland. With that said, if you hear of 40+ acres for sale that was a farm or has meadow/pasture land as well as rolling terrain, water feature such as springs, creeks or pond, please let us know!

Why North America?

Let's be honest, North America covers a vast area. In fact Greenland to Latin America, Alaska to Puerto Rico are part of the amazing continent we call home. So to be realistic, we are focusing on greater Canada and United States including Alaska. That's not to say we won't go somewhere else, but this is our focus for the next 12+ months.

Update August 2016: It's been seven months since our journey began. We've seen so much and driven over 23,000 miles from Los Angeles to British Columbia, Tennessee to Big Bend Texas, Arizona to Montana to Wisconsin. We realized months ago that Alaska was too far. And with so much to see in America, we've also limited our Canadian travels. We have not given up on either, but will have to wait until our next overland adventure....

For those familiar with the "overland" community, many choose far-away, romantic destinations requiring immense logistics, large cash hoards and/or dangerous locations due to unstable governments, tribes and the like. Not exactly our idea of adventure. Ours is based on the outdoors, seeing and experiencing the world as it was given to us. Providing shelter, food and basic needs we all have taken for granted, we set out to discover the back road, forgotten town and parts of this land few experience.


Rules Of Travel

Most important is to NOT get on the Interstate Highway System. As amazing as it is, this system allows the average person to bypass most of our great resources, it's people. Our Home on Wheels (HoW), as off-road capable as it may be, is still designed for mostly paved road travel. And although we can't avoid "big" cities, our goal is to not visit cities with populations over 20,000 people. It should be easy, but also a bit challenging as we will need to find airports to travel back to our storage, work and families on occasion. We also will be in the backcountry, driving to remote trailheads and backpacking into wilderness with limited access.

Edit August 2016: We've stayed true to our promise, dirt roads are plenty and have spent the majority of our travels off the highway. We estimate <1,000 miles have been traveled on the interstate and about 30% of travel is on some byway/US highway system. These are often single late rural roads bisecting the land and though very small communities with little more than a hundred residences.
