Relatable & Fun!

I found this podcast after listening to Christian & Annabelle appear on the Marriage is Funny podcast, and then dove into their archives! I'm beyond caught up now (where are y'all? come back!!). I enjoy this podcast and find it very fun and relatable!

Great podcast!

Such a sweet couple and so many awesome stories about love and adventure!

Inspiration for life goals!

We met this lovely couple on Hurricane Hill- a trail in Olympic National Park. Her DePaul sweatshirt caught my eye (as I was an '06 graduate). We chatted for awhile about their transition to a life on the road, and immediately began listening to this podcast while in the car on our 9-week-road trip. We were so inspired that we, too, have decided to ditch our tieds-down-life in exchange for full time RV Living! We are beyond excited, and we wonder if we would have reached this conclusion without the random meetup on the mountain :) This podcast has been super helpful in answering our newbie questions about life on the road!
