Our Home

Our Home for the year is a 1991 Shasta Revere 11.5′ s/d truck camper paired with a solid 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 cummings diesel 4×4 dually truck. Driving this truck is a dream! It’s the most fuel efficient truck we found at 30 mpg and runs about 1200 km per tank! The camper layout, features, storage, and comfort cover everything on our wish list. This is 90 square feet of luxury. Even the king size bed is comfier than the one in our real house. By the time we hit the road next May, we will be outfitted with a solar energy system that will allow us to completely live off the grid. I will update this page soon with some accurate facts and figures, but until then we estimate living this way will reduce our footprint on the planet by at least 75%. We’ll be downsizing from a 3 bedroom, 1900 sq foot home powered by coal electricity and wood heat to a 90 sq foot camper powered by solar and propane. And we’ll be downsizing from 2 vehicles guzzling about 50,000 km worth of gas annually to 1 vehicle driving about 30,000 km around the continent. Pretty amazing stuff!! Add to that our plant-based diet, and we’re practically flying. IMG_1666 IMG_1669 IMG_1668IMG_1801 IMG_1670 IMG_1667
