a little about us
We are Nathalie, Louis, Elouise Scout, and #parkertheadventurepup.
In June 2017, we bought a 1969 Airstream Globetrotter to convert into a tiny home on wheels. By August the renovation of this little 120 sq foot Airstream was mostly finished and we moved in, hitting the road a few weeks later.
We have traveled over 70,000 miles in our first 4 years living on the road.
In March 2020 we added our littlest traveler, Miss Elouise Scout! In her first year of life she visited 23 states from California to Maine.
Nathalie is originally from Norway, but spent most her life in Utah. Before road life she worked as a photographer, photo editor, and nanny, now she works as a content creator for brands. She enjoys being a mom, photography, instagram-ing, kayaking, and when the chance comes, figure skating.
Louis is from Kansas City, Missouri. He lived in a 1965 Avion for 8 months before building the Airstream. He is a carpenter, with experience as a historic preservation carpenter. He enjoys riding his bicycles, motorcycling, and kayaking.
Parker is our 3 year old border collie. She is adventurous, playful, and a fetch-aholic.

Nobody's perfect. Here are a few things we learned the hard way.
Always chock your wheels
Even when you're trying to unhitch quickly so you can tow someone's van out of the sand.
Be careful where you store glass
(Goodbye olive oil, cholula, and maple syrup)
Always walk a road before driving it
You can only reverse so many miles before you go crazy.
