In this interview from our archives, the Waytasheks tell about their full-time lifestyle, how they began it, and what life is like living in a recreational vehicle in the Arizona desert.

Video Rating: / 5 Chris & Cherie of share about their February 2015 travel adventures exploring and boondocking around the desert southwest. We spent a delightful couples weeks on BLM land surrounding Cibola Wildlife Refuge, then boondocked a week off Ogilby Rd near Yuma,AZ and then joined up with friends off Darby Well Rd just south of Ajo and ended the month ‘mooch docking’ near Arizona City with friends. What a fun winter, and we loved being off grid! We’ve been on the road full time since 2006, working remotely the entire time – we love this lifestyle, and enjoy sharing about all aspects of it. We generally host and post a live video topic monthly (we pick a topic and host a Q&A session – for more info). We also post interviews with our nomadic friends every 4-6 weeks in our Ramblings series, and share a monthly travelogue from our own nomadic travels like this one. Thanks for joining us!

    In the seaside town I live in here in England, there's been a steady increase in RVs and similar vehicles for the past couple of years. The land is free to park on and I imagine it's via word of mouth that so many are turning up. It's definitely got me interested in the freedom aspect of being able to move and go wherever you want. For me, its the technology side of it which fascinates me. Setting up solar panels, WiFi, water filtration. The folk here are always happy to chat and answer questions. I want to set up some leisure batteries using a relay to charge them up, and use them when parked.That's my new t project.

    I don't have an RV YET. but I have family in Casa Grande. I've been there twice once last week and once end of October/beginning of November. It is beautiful out there and my Wife and want to relocate from New England. This last time I went but there I went to Casa Grande Ruins (in Coolidge, Arizona). Did you get there and what did you think of the rich history of the area. I know it's not RV related.

    Enjoying these Travelogues that you two are producing. I find the "traveling" videos on youtube the best. It gives us a better sense of where to go. Not necessarily the exact spot, but the general vicinity. You are able to capture the beauty of the desert in your pics and videos. Safe travels my friends!!!

    You guys are great at what you do. The carefree way, smooth flowing presentation … The way you allow each other to comment, etc. thanks guys. Really enjoy your videos. I actually went to an outdoors camping expo today. Just over an hours drive from Melbourne. Was very impressed with a Trailer that is much more affordable than all the others. It ticks all the boxes. Insulation, structure. Solar power, bathroom, and other essential features. Down here in OZ RVs are double the price or more compared to the US. These vans are made In China. Hence cheaper. There's hope for me:-)

    Great video as always 😀

    Where in Austin, will the documentary be shown? I ask, bc my cousin owns the Alamo Drafthouse… And it would be very serendipitous for that to be the locale 😛

    Thank you so much for all your content, and wishing you much joy along the journey 😀
