Sweet, I have followed them a bit, and loved reading about their travels on the Stewart-Cassiar highway, one we traveled on last summer in our school bus.
I'm sorry to have missed them when they came through Charleston, I live only a few miles from the Angel Oak they visited.
Nice house, nice photos, and of course VERY NICE DOG!
Thanks for sharing!

Just reminded of a quote from Art Mullen (played by Nick Searcy in JUSTIFIED). Speaking of his wife he said (words to the effect):

"She wants to buy a travel trailer. 2 people living together in 150 square feet. What could possibly go wrong?"

But seriously, it sounds like a great adventure! YMMV

Very nice. We will be setting out in our custom built house for Alaska next year (not going now, too close to winter) and I am looking over their routes. If that tiny house can make it, I think we can.

Looks like the couple is having a lot of fun. I scanned through their blog, and was surprised to read that they used as much as 30 gallons of water a day. Most RV'ers use a lot less than that.

Are you her Uncle Matt?
