Our Story

We did everything we were supposed to do: went to college, got jobs, and bought a house. Everyone thought we were living the dream.

But we weren’t happy. Living by someone else’s rules wasn’t for us. We spent 13 years feeling stuck in a place we didn’t like, dealing with a long commute, and working in jobs that wore us out.

We were tired of long, cold winters and we spent too much time shoveling snow and fixing things around our old house.

We wanted a different life where we could be outside, see beautiful places every day, and try new things. And we didn’t want to wait until we were too old to enjoy it.

So, in 2017, we sold our house in Indiana, moved to southern Arizona, and started a new life in a motorhome we call The Diesel Apartment. Now, we live simply and love our life of desert adventure.
