Welcome to our Jeep blog Jeepsies, the best personal Jeep blog on the Internet!
Okay, we’re a little biased. But a ton of hard work and research go into making sure each article on this Jeep blog is worth your time to read.
About the Authors of This Jeep Blog
We are Eric, Brittany, and Caspian Highland. We own no home or property. We live life as nomads.
In 2019 alone, we traveled through 32 U.S. states, 2,000 miles throughout the interior of Mexico, and about 500 miles through Canada, as well. Our son Caspian traveled to over 60 National Park Service units, three countries, and even hiked two miles by himself–four times–before he turned three.
Our hope is to encourage others, especially families, to try out the nomadic lifestyle, to overland, and to explore the world. Our dream is to navigate the globe by vehicle, while we worldschool our son in the process.
Why the Name Jeepsies? Isn’t That Too “Cutesy” for a Jeep Blog?
We get it. We weren’t sure about using this name for a Jeep blog either, but it fits.
The name Jeepsies is a play on the word “gypsies.” On Feb. 21, 2014, we did something a little unconventional. We sold everything and started traveling full-time. We’ve never looked back.
Here is a brief timeline of events in our lives that led us to where we are now:
- February 2014: We sold everything and bought an RV, and we’ve been traveling full-time ever since. We changed locations every two weeks when we first started, and now it isn’t unusual for us to move several times a week. If you’re interested in the RV lifestyle, then you can check out our RV Wanderlust blog.
- December 2016: We had a baby boy named Caspian. He’s been a full-time traveler and Jeeper since birth! He had no idea what he was in for. Welcome to the world, Little Nomad.
- September 2018: We announced we’d be overlanding with our Jeep through Mexico. We picked up a roof top tent and some gear to make this first international trip in our Jeep.
- December 2018: We sold our RV and moved into our Jeep. Crazy, right? Not crazy enough. In January, we loaded up and headed deep into the interior of Mexico.
- March 2019: We bought “Basecamp,” a 2016 Winnebago View, to use as a launching platform for our nomadic overlanding adventures.
Suffice it to say, YOLO (You Only Live Once) and FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) are two things we take seriously.
We are seizing this life and doing it up right. After all, you only get one shot around. Why not take it to the limit?
What Is This Jeep Blog All About?
This Jeep blog is about jeeping, overlanding, and the full-time travel lifestyle.
We feel it’s important for us to write this Jeep blog from a personal perspective. As we all know, there are plenty of corporate Jeep and overlanding blogs, but this isn’t one of them.
Each article on our Jeep blog is written from a personal perspective with the main purpose of encouraging others that this life is possible.
Also, since we travel full-time, it’s really helpful for us to get to know other Jeepers and overlanders all over the world. You know the rule about never wheeling alone, right?
Well, since we’re constantly on the move, it’s not only for fun, but also for safety, that we intentionally connect with folks everywhere we go.
Like all Jeepers and overlanders, we’re still learning. If you see something you can chime in on, then please do! We really don’t mind if you laugh at us, though we’d prefer if you help by commenting and sharing your Jeep, and overland, knowledge. We do our best to respond to all comments.
We’ve found, generally speaking, both the Jeep and overland communities are incredibly helpful. We’re glad to be part of both and we’re honestly thankful you’re here.
Why Should I Read This Jeep Blog?
We cover everything we can from a non-technical, but informational, perspective. We’ll never recommend things we don’t believe in, and all opinions will remain our own.
On this Jeep blog, you can expect transparency, honesty, and solid information.
We love exploring and have taken our Jeep “Guardian” on some incredible trails around the nation, including 12 of the 47 Jeep Badge of Honor trails.
