Hi There! We are the family behind Living Our Incredible Dash! In November 2014, we moved into our 35′ Rexhall Aerbus and started our full time journey. It has not been without it’s ups and downs but we believe life is what you make it and every single bit of the journey we have been on has been worth it. You can read about why we decided to live and travel in an RV full time here.
Travis & Cat
We met on eHarmony.com – a little silly, we know, but their process must have some success because here we are! Cat signed up to do the personality profile for a psychology paper she was writing, while Travis signed up – to meet a lady who would become his wife. Being matched led to endless phone calls, countless flights between AZ and TX and soon after we were married!
Travis recently ended his long-time career in the Air Force and is now a conductor with BNSF Railway. Working on the railroad wasn’t something he imagined himself doing, but the doors opened at the right time and it turns out, it’s a great fit for him! He enjoys computers, mountain biking, dog training, archery and has become quite the DIY guru. He will out-scream anyone with his hilarious antics on rollercoasters and it’s safe to say that if there’s an amusement park near by he will jump at the chance to go. He really hoped we could buy an RV when we were newlyweds, but having orders to England at the time, we decided it didn’t make sense. He loves the minimalistic life, free of busyness with plenty of time for family togetherness and fun.
Cat is a former EMT turned stay-at-home mama. She’s a hobby photographer who loves to capture precious moments to cherish forever and is pretty much always taking photos, even if just with her phone camera. Having experienced a traumatic pregnancy with her first child, where she was diagnosed with Hyperemisis Gravidarum she gives back by mentoring and advocating for others also walking through pregnancy with this severe illness. She minored in Elementary Education in college and is in charge of schooling on the road for the kiddos. Growing up, she lived in Arizona and her family often took trips together which planted a love of traveling in her heart from a young age. In college, she worked as a flight attendant and also lived and worked in France as a nanny. This afforded many unforgettable travel opportunities including Germany, Italy, Spain and Andorra. She enjoys writing, biking, beaches, horseback riding, reading and the sound of a heavy rainstorm on the RV roof! The best part of being full time is being able to move frequently, meet new people, and explore every nook and cranny of our beautiful world.
She is our born traveller – she loves to go, see, and do! She has traveled with her mama cross country since she was an itty bitty baby, as girls trips were our favorite way to pass the time when Daddy deployed. She is so full of life, loves adventure and keeps us all laughing! At 6 years old, she is a social butterfly who loves meeting new friends, the color purple, Bill Nye the Science Guy, being outside and finding new playgrounds to explore. She loves every travel day and is always excited to see where we will go next!
He is our sweet sensitive soul, a cuddler and mommy’s boy through and through! Yes, his name is the same as one you might recall from a famous series of movies. 😉 Anakin tolerates travel days but mostly loves to explore once we stop – whether at our destination or anywhere along the way! At 3 years old, he loves his Star Wars guys, building with Legos and playing in the sandbox. If there is music playing you can be certain that you will find him singing or dancing along, and he’ll probably get you to join in too! He can’t wait for a Disneyland trip and train ride he’s old enough to remember!
After my dachshund, Rusty, passed away due to cancer it took us some time to decide to get another dog. We dog sat a labrador retriever for a friend and suddenly we realized that we really needed another furry member of the family. We searched for the right dog for several months and during that time is when we met our friend Laura, owner of Sage Creek Kennels. We met Harley just days after he was born and fell in love immediately. He turned 4 this year and has really grown up with our kids. He has just the perfect temperament thanks to the hard work and training that both Laura and Travis have done. When we are outside he loves to run, chase balls, and play with the kids. When we are hanging out inside, he is happy to just lounge around and take long naps or chew on a bone. He is such a great traveller, loves to cuddle and is a great protective guy to have around.
