August market our Two Year Nomadiversary! That’s right! We hit the road in August of 2019 and have lived in our rig ever since. It was a bitter-sweet month of ups and downs. We got to hang out with friends, talk about full-time life, owning a business, and all the things inbetween. We got to see a real-life Thunderhollow and visit Mackinac Island with friends! We also had time to dive into some much-needed RV repairs and discover mold while at it. Yea, that part was not great. Naturally, our spending was all over the place with a month like that.

Here is a list of our Stays!
