We live in our Nissan Patrol camper that we built ourselves to roam Earth.
We’re real people, and that’s what we share with you. We love to eat, chat, get dirty, seek out free showers, wear the same outfits on repeat because, well come on, we live in a car. We make mistakes. We love to laugh. We get tired (and cranky). We live big with experiences, not possessions. We share honest truth of the very good times, as well as the most difficult. We don’t live a travel life of glorious perfection – there’s no such thing. We are simply doing what makes US feel most satisfied. We hope to inspire and ignite your own passion within yourself, by being brutally honest as we discover ours.
Come along for the ride.
We are a young family of three who love to explore: husband, wife, and Quinn the dog. Born in Australia.
Kyle: lover of 4WDing, MMA, ju jitsu, exploring, and surfing. A wild climber, adventurer, ‘no shirt, no shoes, no problem’ kinda guy; Kyle is a qualified light-vehicle mechanic by trade who loves to customise 4WDs in his free time. Kyle built our 4WD camper himself – from the first drawings, to ongoing maintenance; he’s our trusty, invaluable car hero.
We built ourselves a camper and attached it to the back of our Nissan Patrol (‘we’ means Kyle).
Why not? We live in the world, not a inside a box with 4 walls. Let’s embrace it, let’s learn, let’s connect, let’s grow.

We arrived late in the night, too excited to stop in Broome to sleep in the tent as planned. We'd already driven 4500kms in the past few days - what was the harm in another 700 tonight? We looked at each other; a reckless glint in our tired eyes. The setting sun cast...
Oh, El Questro. A genuine paradise in the rugged Australian outback. Red dust whirls on broad gravel roads. Open blue skies so vast that you forget about the world. Landscapes so ancient, it's an absolute privilege to be a spec passing by in the outback wind. El...
Three weeks from the moment Kyle had said: "Let's do the Gibb River Road in three weeks time", we started driving across the arid landscape towards the Northern Territory border. We only had five days to do our HUGE mini trip which would seem absolutely crazy to most...
