Kathleen + Greg and their two dogs Blaize + Peaches live in a 1969 camper trailer (140 sq. ft.). They are currently building out their 1987 Toyota van as their next adventure mobile.
They are passionate about sharing stories of those choosing alternative lifestyles, living more environmentally consciously and spending more time in nature.
I'm an adventurer and traveler, who often takes the road less traveled for the drive of capturing the unexpected.
I have always been a photographer and a journalist. When I was little, I would write and illustrate my own children's books, creating stories about a girl and her dog.
Now I am that girl and Blaize + Peaches are my adventure dogs. This experiment in tiny living has made me a wild child, and I hope to inspire people to get outside and explore.
I am a consistent contributor for She Explores, an ambassador for Rumpl, Biolite and Native Campervans, a field agent for Mountain Standard and an explorer for The Outbound. I also write for Hipcamp, Huckberry and work for Vanlife Diaries as their American contributor. These are just a few of my passion projects.
I am the guy you want to take backpacking or on a local hiking trail. I will find a hidden wild strawberry patch or some delicious flowers from edible plants.
My interest in architecture began as a child when my favorite activity was building a network of tree houses in the 70-year-old cottonwood trees behind my family’s house. It wasn’t until I went to college that I discovered ecological systems, biomimicry and sustainable architecture.
Now I am a landscape architect consultant that is passionate about tiny house design, renewable energies, urban design, interior design, ecology and permaculture, to name a few.
I am the founder of a landscape design/build firm called Tasteful by Design. Contact me for help designing your outdoor spaces. I'll also share my ideas on edible landscapes, homesteading and whole systems design.
I've been through a lot in the past few years. First, I lived in a city apartment. It was fun going on walks around the block, but I was always on a leash and my outside time was limited. Then, I lived in a camper trailer. I suddenly had a backyard I could finally explore whenever I wanted. Now, we live in all sorts of tiny spaces. Wild, right? How many dogs can say they've tried out so many different versions of tiny houses?
Seems like almost yesterday that I was waiting around for some family to rescue me. Little did I know I would end up on this tiny living blog. All they do is talk about vans and camper trailers. In the beginning, I wasn't sure what the big deal was, but now I understand. We get to travel more, which means new backyards for me to run around in. Bring on adventure mobiles. They are a dog's (second) best friend.
