Those of you who have been following us on social media know we’ve moved. This is a huge change for us, after more than four years of being “Jeepsies.” But like a snake sheds its skin, it’s time for us to shed an identity that doesn’t fit our dreams anymore.
We love the name Jeepsies and our logo. But we have two big concerns we haven’t been able to shake:
- Trademark: We don’t have a license from Jeep to use the name Jeepsies. Up until now, we’ve been a small, informational blog and haven’t sold anything with the name on it. But with our global overlanding trip, we have larger plans. We don’t want to run into a trademark issue a year or two down the road, and be forced to rebrand.
- What about when we don’t drive a Jeep anymore? We plan to travel for the rest of our lives. What about when we take a year to travel by train around Europe? Or buy a 1957 Bel Air and drive it up and down Route 66? Who knows what we’ll do. The point is, we keep making brands like RV Wanderlust and Jeepsies that confine us to one thing. This new brand can grow with us, no matter what kind of travel we decide to do.
Hourless Life Launch
Starting Nov. 14, 2020, you can find us at Hourless Life. This is the name of our newest brand, on our new website and social media platforms. And we hope you will join us there! If we’ve learned anything from all these years on the road, it’s that our community means everything to us. You’ve seen us through illnesses, breakdowns, disappointments, the birth of a child, and so much more. We don’t want to do this without you.
Here are the best ways you can stay in touch:
You may notice there isn’t much to see at HourlessLife.com. In December 2019 when we decided to build a new brand, we had high hopes and big plans for this November 2020 launch. Because this year didn’t go as planned and we needed to dedicate months of our time elsewhere, our new website isn’t finished yet. But that’s okay!
Eventually, you can expect Jeepsies.com to disappear. Our most useful content will be incorporated into HourlessLife.com, along with new resources and all the exciting reports about our global adventures.
Yeah, we’ll miss the name Jeepsies and our sweet logo. But other than that, the best part of Jeepsies is you. And you get to come with us. So here’s to the future. One chapter is closed; another is just starting.
