a little about us
We are Nathalie, Louis, and #parkertheadventurepup.
In June of 2017, we thought it would be a great idea to convert a 1969 Airstream Globetrotter 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 35,000 miles in 2 years and plan to do another 10,000+ every year going forward.
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 edits photos remotely. She enjoys 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 1 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.
