We Meander

Traveling full-time in a 25ft RV

Meandering.....one mile at a time

We’re Terry, Julie, Scuppers the Sailor Dog and Percy the RV. We’re exploring the nooks and crannies of North America living and working full-time in our RV. We’re not in a big hurry and we look forward to getting somewhere eventually. Writing and painting along the way. Come along for the ride!

What’s Boondocking and Dry Camping?

Different people use different terms, but for the purposes of our travels and writing, we will say ‘boondocking’ when we are parked for free without any services. If we pay for a campsite but have no access to any utilities (water, electric) we will say ‘dry camping.’ What’s moochdocking? That’s when someone is kind enough to let you stay in their driveway!

We’re excited to share our adventures here on the website! For Julie’s daily travel log, a map showing where we are in real-time and a private Facebook group, we would like to invite you join our online community of Meanderers at Patreon!

How we went from 'should we' to 'heck yeah'

The decision to travel and work in a small RV shouldn’t be taken lightly. There is much to consider. And we did. We talked ourselves out of it more than once. But somehow it changed for us. It’s our time.

Painting & Drawing

Terry is a full time artist who’s going from the freedom of making any size painting he wants, in what ever medium he’d like, to the confines of a 25ft RV with a wife who doesn’t want permanent paint spots all over the rig. Solution? Terry will be sharing his drawings and watercolors with you here for your viewing pleasure. If you’re interested in owning an original, contact us.
