SftR 056: Living with Less Stuff and More Adventure with The Gray Adventure 278

The Gray Adventure

The Gray Adventure on Stories from the Road podcast

Today on the podcast, Sam interviews Rachel and Nick from The Gray Adventure. After 13 months on the road, the Gray’s have built up quite the YouTube following, sharing their adventures and tips on everything from downsizing to RV travel budgets!

Before hitting the road full-time in their remodeled 30 ft travel trailer, Rachel, Nick, and their two daughters lived abroad for 2 years in Europe. Moving overseas gave them a great opportunity to downsize their lives, so they were well prepared for the minimalism of RV living. They’ve found that with a little planning you can actually have room to spare when living in an RV.

Their first trip in the RV was a cross country trip from Virginia to Lake Tahoe in California. During the trip, they only stayed overnight Walmart parking lots and their daughters thought that fulltime RV life meant living at Walmart. The girls shared their concerns with their parents, saying “I don’t want to live in Walmart parking lots anymore.” The girls warmed up to RV life after seeing that it was more than Walmart parking lots and included really cool adventures and fun RV parks.

Tune in to hear about their favorite travel experiences and more stories from the road!
