Striving for Balance - working, traveling, mountain biking

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hello! We are Ellen & Eric Butler

A traumatic brain injury helped (or forced!!) us reevaluate our lives, priorities, and careers. Our health, marriage and creating incredible memories became our main focus. We have a digital marketing business and have spent the last four summers traveling in our camper. We work in the mornings then spend the balance of the day mountain biking, disc golfing, hiking, cooking and reading.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Eric = web hosting and site maintenance, bicycle mechanic, general handyman, disc golf lessons, amazing with animals

Ellen = vegetable juicing & smoothie expert, public library aficionado, digital marketing, social media, business strategy

Ellen_and_Eric's Pets

Angel is our friendly little 14 lb Poodle & Schnauzer mix. We keep her close, typically on a leash unless there is an appropriate area for her to run and play ball. We always clean up after potty breaks and are happy to accommodate any host dog preferences.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Many of the Colorado ski resorts have free boondocking during the summer. We enjoy quiet places so we can focus on work, conference calls, reading and relaxing.

Ellen_and_Eric's Hometown

We grew up in South Bend, Indiana. Jobs in the bicycling industry brought us to Colorado. Our home is between Boulder and Denver.

Ellen_and_Eric's Rig

Rig Type: Travel Trailer

22 feet long

We have a Toyota Tundra pulling a Coachmen Apex Nano 193BHS. There is a dinette slideout but if space is limited its no problem to keep it in and we're happy to do so. The travel trailer is a single axle and is 22 feet. If space is limited, we can park them side by side or park the tuck in a nearby location. We are pretty self-contained and come with our own water, solar power, wifi, etc.

What a great couple

Eric and Ellen are interesting, respectful and welcome back here any time. It's so nice to have guests that take in the many features of Santa Cruz, including the disc golf course nearby. We hope they'll be back again. Doug and Donna
