We are having too much fun traveling the California coast with Auntie Brin. And every once and a while we remember to take a photo together! ♡

Porten till Lappland, Čuonjávággi på samiska, sett från nordväst. Morgonen bjöd på klart väder till skillnad från nattens norrskensjakt. Vi har snart läst på tillräckligt för att kalla oss hobbyastronomer och kan inte sluta förundras över storleksordningar och naturens fantastiska komplexitet. Under äventyret att ta sig över till Norge igen mötes vi av en ändlös karavan bilar, vi kunde inte hålla oss från att fråga varför vid Riksgränsen? Svaret vi fick: -”För att handla läsk och snus till Svenska vrakpriser.” 😅⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
The port to Lapland, Lapporten, seen from north west. This morning, we woke up to a clear blue sky, that’s more than you can say about last nights Aurora hunt. There was no Aurora anywhere to be seen. When driving back to Norway again we meet a lot of Norwegian cars, and since we are to curious not to ask, we asked a couple of Norwegian guys at Riksgränsen. The answer we got was: -“To buy soda and Snus!” 😅 ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ————————————————————————
Lynn’s birthday is today and her birthday wish is a new RV...so, of course, we’re out RV shopping. Turns out she loves RV life! We’re hitting the road this summer so let us know if any of you wanna caravan camp with us to Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons! #birthdaygirl#happybirthday#rvlife#rvshow#lwincarpediem
Check out the moon tonight. It’s a “super blood wolf moon” or total lunar eclipse and it’s the only one of the year. Partial eclipse starts at 9:35 PM central, full eclipse at 10:41 pm. It will be red at some point. We’re in the desert with no light pollution so we’ll try to get some cool pictures. Check out timeanddate.com for time details in your area.
The skys are so pretty here during sunset! Shortly after I took this photo the alternator went out in the Toyota and we weren't near the RV. Thankfully we were able to get it back to the RV without a tow or help. We are very grateful that Zac has been able to find so much mechanic work at the RTR and having the extra cash for a new part is awesome. And since Zac is a wizard mechanic he can easily replace that on his own. The universe always seems to take care of us. 😊🌵🌄

Wrapped up our Florida Keys/Juno Beach trip this morning! Thankful for beautiful memories made. We will definitely be back! What’s your favorite place to visit with your family? ❤️
Sometimes we just get an influx of questions out of no where, one lately being about our lock for our trailer. I guess a lot of you guys are buying new trailers or doing research for spring. The one we use is from Proven Locks. Every coupler lock is different, so do your research, but we have the 2 5/16ths with the red lock. We updated the promo code to save 10% now vs $15 like it was. That’s almost $25-$30 per lock, thanks to your guys support. We do earn an affiliate commission when you use Brians10, so thank you to y’all who are supporting and upgrading in spring. This is the only lock you’ll see me use on my trailer. We have a review video on YouTube from 2 seasons ago, it’s still holding up perfectly. Check it out at ProvenLocks.com 🔐💪 @provenlocks
Getting the snow off and pulling the hell out of Illinois today!! So many mixed emotions more excited than terrified 😂. Beyond sad to be moving away from our family. Hugged my mom a million times today😭 Knowing we have a loving family rooting for us makes this big crazy adventure alot easier. It's not goodbye it's see you later ❤✌🚐 #toyotarv#rvlife#laterdays#fuckthesnow
These gorgeous forests up in the mountains of California were a must-see for me when we planned our year of travel.
Sometimes when you look forward to seeing something for years, the reality could let you down. That was not the case. Everything was as mysteriously gorgeous as I'd imagined. And better.
As I was overcome with gratitude again for those past adventures, I thought about how much work it took to get to that place. Not just that exact location, but to be in the place where we could do what we wanted for a whole year. Go anywhere, decide to stay longer, change course, anything.
We're working toward some similar freedom again, but even more. So it will take more work, more time, more planning and focus. But then it's all going to come to fruition and it will have been worth all the work, all the sacrifice, all the "being different." I'm blessed to already have a taste of it.
The way we're working and living now is a little different, but that's because the road we're planning to travel, once again, is the very less-traveled road. The rarer the destination, the less people who go all the way. I get that, because short-term sacrifices are bigger, vision must be laser sharp, and payoff is not immediate. But if it were easier, more people would do it. If you're going through the hard part, keep on going.
This is me when I’m the happiest and at my best. Chad and I went through lots of bumps before we became fulltimers in 2016 and it’s been life changing. Selling our 3 bedroom house, almost all our belongings, and learning to live a minimalistic life in a 22ft space also has it’s challenges but the freedom we have been afforded is unparalleled. After traveling the past few years around the country, and 40,000miles later- it was the best decision we could have made. ❤️⠀

Today is an extremely special day. My hauler is virtually finished and this afternoon I get to share it with 500 other full timers, as well as give a presentation on how to reno their own rigs.
These are the people who get me. These are the people who share my wanderlust. These are the people who have also made some serious sacrifices in order to let their gypsy souls run wild. To be able to share my beloved hauler, and knowledge, with them is giving me all the feels 🖤
Sometimes it seems like being a minimalist is just about the possessions you have. I'm trying to take it to the next level with my hauler and be a space minimalist. I'm not sure if that's even the right term, but I love how this space has room to breathe. I love how it's not packed with furniture. I love how it flows and feels so airy. Sometimes less is more.
✨ Home sweet home ✨ Yesterday I put away all of our Christmas decorations and now the RV feels much more simplified and open. When living in a small space, it can start to feel cluttered quick! Even tho I did love our mini Christmas tree.
My goal over the next few weeks is to tackle some organizing projects in here and get SUPER organized. A couple of the areas I've got my eye on are:
👉🏻 the cabinets we use as a pantry,
👉🏻 our overflowing closet,
👉🏻 the underbed storage area which is currently my `Monica Geller closet'. 🙈😳 Anybody else have one of those spots in your home??
I'm thinking today I should do some "research" and binge watch Tidying Up on Netflix first... 😉 Who's seen it already? Is it as good as everyone says it is?? Help me with my research! 😆
