My wife and I are missionaries. The Lord has given us the privilage to have lived overseas, in the amazon jungle, as well as Alaska, we have traveled to 32 countries and all 50 states. I worked out of our office in Colorado. In 2006 we sold our home and moved into a 5th wheel, with a Volvo semi to pull it. We had never camped before but felt that God was putting us on the road. I am the west coast mission coach, traveling north to south, west of Colorado; recruiting the next generation of international workers. Working out of our home on wheels is great we never have to travel any more we are just stay at home and we are home where ever we are parked. Several years ago I outfitted our home with solar. We can stay off the grid for 2 weeks and the limiting factor is water. I still run all of the computers, servers, printers and WiFi on solar and still have electricity in the morning to make coffee. We have no generator. We are often boondocking on a church parking lot, BLM land or a Christian camp or College Campus even a Walmart parking lot as we travel through to the next stop. One of my wife's greatest fear of living in an RV was her green thumb, she loves plants. the first year or we cared pots of plants. Now when ever I need to stay in one place for a while my wife volunteer's planting flowers and that pays for full hook ups. Then I can do my ministry and my wife can make the place beautiful.
I served as a missionary pilot and mechanic. I researched and installed my own Solar and learned a lot in the process. I do most all of the modifications and work on our truck and trailer.
The photo is from BLM last just south of Flagstaff Az. But we are often boondocking on a church parking lot, BLM land or a Christian Camp or College Campus even a Walmart parking lot as we travel through to the next stop.
HDT, old Walmart Semi had 1/2 million miles when I purchased it but it was cheaper than a pickup. We tow a Suzuki SX4 which is my wife's transportation and it tows very easily behind our 5er. Our home is a Mobile Suites 36RS3. I have added Solar, 4 220Ah 6v golf cart batteries, and 4 Kyocera 135w solar panels. Verizon broadband card in a Cradlepoint WiFi router.
