Young family, full-time travel trailer living, traveling the country on a book tour

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Derek, Carrie and baby Amelie. We are originally from Kansas City, MO, but we took off in April 2015 to tour the country with our book, One Bed, One Bank Account. We also have a podcast called Better Conversations on Money and Marriage. You can find it on iTunes. We LOVE full-time travel trailer life! We enjoy the outdoors, biking, reading, running (Carrie) and taking walks with our daughter. In addition to being authors, Carrie is a voice actor. You can hear her voice in radio commercials, corporate e-learning programs, all kinds of narration and many other places. When she needs to work, we convert our bathroom into a sound booth :) Since Carrie can do her voiceover work from the road, and Derek is an author and can work from anywhere, we decided to hit the road. Amelie just turned one in April, 2015. She enjoys trying to say words, making a mess with her food, dancing and generally being adorable. You can read more about us at derekandcarrie.com.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Carrie is a voice actor, so if you run a business and need someone to voice a commercial or animation video or something similar, she'd be glad to help out! Here's her site: carrieolsenvo.com. She is also great with computers -- basic websites, basic design, etc. Derek is a podcasting and audio production pro. If you need any consulting with anything like that, he's your man. He can also consult if you're interested in self publishing a book.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We are traveling the entire US. So, we started in Kansas City, went south to Texas and Phoenix, headed west to San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco. Then we'll keep heading north, turn east towards North Dakota, head back south through Kansas City to Texas again, then keep heading east. We'll end up in New York some time around October/November. You can read more about our tour at derekandcarrie.com/tour.

DerekAndCarrie's Hometown

Delightful couple.

A young couple with a 1 y/o who are full-timing and doing it very, very well. I recommend them highly as delightful guests.

Wonderful guests!

Derek, Carrie and Amelie were interesting and unimposing guests, just into a 7 month long adventure. They stayed several nights, we enjoyed spending some time and just baby watching! Happy travels!
