A Setback

Well, we knew something would happen sooner or later. All RVs have issues (I type this as we are passing an RV that is smoking on I-80 through western IL),…

Where’s the Nearest Hospital?

Life on the road has a lot of perks, but today, as I was taking my youngest to a local children's hospital here in Kansas City, MO, I realized healthcare…

RV Camping in Chicago

We’re native Chicagoans, and while we get ready to move into our converted school bus, we’ve learned a lot about where to go if you want to park an RV…

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 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 five different websites, three focused on travel (  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 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. We’ve worked with brands like L.L Bean, NiteIze, FMCA, GoSun Solar, American Backcountry, Thrive Market and more. We’d love to chat with you!

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!
