Mark and Shannon quit their jobs and sold almost everything to live life on the road in their 2018 Highland Ridge Open Range. With one small pup in tow, they enjoy the freedom and adventure they craved prior to hitting the road. Their motto is “go small, go now,” and they continue to travel wherever the wind takes them.

These are just a few of the many trees we’ve seen outside our #windowtotheworld, traveling the country with our trailer. When we started on this journey we knew absolutely nothing about RVing. As newbies, we totally wish we knew about @thorindustries ’ website sooner because HOLY SMOKES it is chock full of tasty info from #thorpartners who have shared their invaluable experiences and lessons from living on the road. The trees pictured here live on Tybee Island near Savannah, Georgia. Sea, sand, lighthouses, old forts, and chill vibes welcome you to this barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean. Lucky for us, we drove our RV right into the middle of it all, and made a pact to watch the sunrise each morning of our stay since our camp was minutes from the beach. There are many things we love about this lifestyle, but most of all is living near what we want to see and do. While at Tybee, we only got in our truck once, and that was to go visit downtown Savannah which was only 20 minutes away. (And get gas before departure...always a must 😁)! Who knew when we decided to travel in an RV this is how it would be? #sponsored #rvlife #rv #rvliving #rvtravel #rvfamily #rvlifestyle #rvtravel #rvroadtrip @heartland_rv

What's your favorite place to eat in the area & why?
We loved Tybee Island Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market! You cannot beat scooping up fresh veggies from local farmers and tossing them on the grill at your campsite. But if you’re looking for a spot to dine in, try North Beach Bar and Grill for some yummy seafood right by the lighthouse and the beach.
Who’s your favorite travel buddy & why?
Skipper is the best travel companion. He is our little Italian Greyhound who always gets the conversation started with our ever-changing neighbors. You don’t have to be lonely on the road and our little guy certainly helps us meet and greet. He has adapted well to travel life and we’re so grateful to have him aboard.
What’s your favorite part about this view & why?
Who doesn’t want to wake up to palm trees outside their window? The comforts of a full-hookup RV park allow for multiple days enjoying the sand and surf.
Which views are on your bucket list & why?
We would love to snorkel in the clear waters of the Florida Keys. We might also want to drive our trailer through Times Square just to say we did.
What’s one piece of advice you have for RVers?
When you’re on the road, don’t move too fast. We started out traveling like the world was on fire and we quickly became tired and stressed. By scheduling shorter four- to five-hour travel days, staying in place for at least three days, and not arriving somewhere new after dark, we dramatically reduced our anxiety and increased our happiness on the road.
