About us

We are a full-time traveling family of 5 who purchased a school bus, converted it into an RV, and named her Wander Bus. We got rid of everything we owned and left our Chicago life behind to travel America full-time. 

We have no idea how long we are going to be on the road, most of the time we have no real idea where we are headed until days before its time to pack up and move on, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We are experiencing our life as a family, celebrating our National Parks, discovering our countries history, and always dreaming about when we can get back to Walt Disney World.

We run four different websites, two focused on travel (RVMiles.com and this site), and two focused on the theater/performing arts industries in Chicago and Kansas City (Perform.Ink. KC.Perform.Ink). We are also the voices behind the RV Miles podcast, and coming soon, the America’s National Parks podcast.

If you’d like to talk about partnering/advertising with us you can visit our media page on RV Miles.

So, this is our journey. It’s a journey built on risk, adventure, trust, and love because we know not all who wander are lost. Welcome, and we’ll see you on the road!
