About Us

We are a team of five living the dream in Silver CIty, NM.  We left our previous home in Manchester, CT and hit the road on Thursday, November 6, 2014.  We started building our tiny house on July 8, 2015 and received our Certificate of Occupancy on July 28, 2016. To get started, you can read more about our mission here – Preparing to Head West.

Cast of Characters

Chelsea – Most of the writing will be done by Chelsea as she is often the navigator and doesn’t get car sick while working in the car.  She specializes in data analysis,  logistics and taming wild animals.

Brian – The master researcher and go-to man for a “can do” attitude.  Brian brings construction, IT and bird identification experience to the project.

Fred – Fred Bird is a 15 year old African Grey Parrot with bottomless confidence.  He enjoys swinging upside down, pooping outside of his cage and harassing the dogs.

Trooper – The best trained but least obedient dog of the team, Trooper can army crawl, play dead and retrieve delicious food items without eating them.  He’s well traveled and trusts the human leadership.  His antics will often be featured.

Sydney – The most unpredictable of the bunch, Sydney brings speed and pant power (i.e. hyperventilation) to the team arsenal.  She believes she is the size of an elephant and will take on any foe (real or perceived) in defense of her beloved pack members.
