Howard and Katelyn, two easy-going full-timers with lovable pups included.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hi! We're Howard and Katelyn, and we went full-time in our 2019 Winnebago Navion in August of 2018. We covered a lot of ground since hitting the road, first up the East Coast of the US and Canada in the Fall of 2018 from our former home in Miami Beach, FL. In 2019 we traveled along the southwest before curving north along the California coast eventually making it all the way to Alaska! In 2020, we spent 5 months RVing through Central Mexico. We loved it so much, we'll be returning in early 2021.

We both work from the road, we have our own consulting business specializing in Public Relations and Social Media Marketing. Our travel family included two Puggles, Piper and Ella and one adorable adopted beach dog from Mexico, Scout.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Goes without saying, but we are both quite tech savvy. Katelyn is a whiz at Social Media, Public Relations, and Marketing. Howard has an extensive background in media production, and worked for decades on major motion pictures, TV, and concert multimedia. He then moved into interactive technologies, including helping put Virtual Reality on roller coasters. Today, Howard is a Chief Technology Officer for a Virtual Reality medical training company, helping to train and develop our future healthcare providers and first responders.

newstatenomads's Pets

We have two lovable Puggles (Half Beagle, Half Pug) named Piper and Ella and a rescue dog from Mexico, Scout. We aren't sure of her breed but all are small, each weighing 25 lbs. They travel with us fulltime, and thoroughly enjoy sleeping 16-18 hours a day.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Rutherford Beach, LA is fantastic for sandy boondocking when on the way from Texas into Louisiana.

newstatenomads's Hometown

Howard and Katelyn both lived in Miami Beach, FL before going full-time. Howard is from Ohio, born and raised in Cincinnati, while Katelyn has spent most of her life around Virginia. She grew up in King George County, and we both lived together for a while in RIchmond, VA.

They were very busy with work, when we did get to visit it was very enjoyable. They had three very quiet dogs that we were well behaved . They are welcome back anytime! Thanks for choosing to stay at paradise in the woods.

Newstatenomads are wonderful guests, caring and compassionate. They were so quiet, we hardly noticed they were here. Looking forward to hosting them again sometime.

Great Couple

It was a pleasure to host this couple and their three dogs. They are welcome to return in the future.

A pleasure to have met them and fur babies. I’m glad they were able to run around the yard and release their energy. We shared travel experiences. Always welcome back.

Very nice couple with fur babies.

So quiet you’d never know they were on the property.
Came and went at their leisure. Would welcome them back if the calendar shows availability.

Very quiet and respectful couple

This couple visited for a few days and they were so quiet and respectful that I forgot they were even there, hopefully if they visit again I can get to know them a bit more. Highly recommend.

almost too short

What a pleasant family. We hardly knew they were here, missed getting to meet the dogs, especially the rescue. We had some good conversation plus a nice meal together. He helped us a bit with our water filters on the well. Unfortunately the last person was a bit overeager in tightening things so we could not really finish the job. We look forward to having them again and our home is always open. Safe travels

Great Guests!

I would highly recommend these nomads to other Boondock Host - very kind and generous couple - perfect Guests although we did not have much time to connect with busy schedules. Do hope that they have a chance to visit again.
