We are Camille and Bryce, married, former workaholics, who traded in Corporate America for North America, to explore new places, people, and possibilities.
The Sofa Made Us Do It!
That’s what we like to tell people when they ask why we left everything behind, including good paying jobs, to travel North America in an RV.
We were married in 2014 and by 2016 decided it was time to pull the plug on our suburban lives.
We had come out of an eventful two-year period. Newly married, ever demanding careers, new health issues, and housing disasters caused us to ask if this traditional way of life—owning a home and going to the same place everyday—was for us. The tipping point was having to buy furniture for our nearly empty home of two years.
Buying furniture was the final step to ‘settle into our lives’ and, frankly, it freaked us out. Furniture seemed heavy and permanent. Having to decide between a taupe or camel colored sofa pushed us over the edge. The whole experience led us to question, “Why are we doing this? There has to be more to life than this–right?”

My grandparents always said, “Go to school, get a job, and get a house.”
My parents were more like free birds, but my Grandparents’ sensibilities drove me for many years. I grew up in sunny Southern California, and worked in Corporate America as a trainer, manager, and coach, helping people find jobs and advance in their careers. While I wasn’t a great student in my younger years, later in life I obtained a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology.
I loved what I did for work. What I didn’t love was feeling held back in traditional corporate environments. I was like a unicorn hanging out on a horse ranch–never quite fitting in with the rules and structure. What’s worse, I came to depend on what my manager thought about me, or my performance review rating. I worked hard to be the best “corporate employee”.
After 20 years, it was time to create new rules and let my inner unicorn fly free. Now, I help others do the same. Read more here.
Sports guy, map nut, numbers freak, collector of many things (books, postage stamps, newspapers, baseball cards), outdoorsy and studious–that was my upbringing in an Oregon college town.
Thankfully, my parents encouraged my brother and me to attend college in another state. Off to Los Angeles, California for my second life!
After earning a bachelor’s degree in finance, I embarked on a career in Corporate Finance. Backpacking in the Sierra Nevada mountains provided a perfect balance to a successful career in the financial services industry spanning over 20 years and three companies.
And then I met the love of my life, Camille, and started my third life. Her ‘zest for life’ encouraged me to push boundaries and seek adventure. We trekked the Himalayas to Mount Everest Base Camp and scaled Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa together.
Two years after getting married, we decided to radically redefine our lives by leaving our corporate careers to travel, live and work from an RV. Today, I’m focused on developing and growing our business, helping small businesses and entrepreneurs with financial decisions, and finding my artistic side.
I’m Parker, the RV jester. I was discovered living in a garage with 30 other cats.
In a stroke of luck, someone put my photo on Facebook mere days before animal control was contacted. That’s how my humans found me. I gave them a run for their money because for the first few weeks, I was so terrified that I hid in a basket and only came out to poop all over the couch. But now, I’m a total love bug, lap cat who loves life on the road and enjoys outdoor walks. I do miss my old pal, Bianca, though.

Life On The Road
We’ve been on the road since August of 2016 and have seen beautiful places, experienced wonderful culture, and built a community of friends.
Here are some of our highlights.

What We Do Now
Since leaving Corporate America and reinventing ourselves professionally, we’ve dabbled in many types of remote work.
Click here to read more about our first (and only) acting job.
We launched our More Than A Wheelin’ website to document our journey. After a few months of teaching ourselves how to blog, we finally got serious and invested in learning how to generate income. Our favorite super-affordable course is Building a Framework by Abby Lawson. Click here to learn more.
We have since generated income through affiliate products, Amazon sales, and selling our own product.
Additionally, we started blogging for other companies and currently write for Campanda peer-to-peer RV rental company.
Investing and Financial Consulting
I have transitioned my analytical skills to other interests.
I’ve had a lifelong passion for financial investing. Recently, I’ve been studying and practicing how to trade options contracts. In late 2017, I made my first trade!
Additionally, I’m consulting with small businesses and entrepreneurs to help them make successful financial decisions.
Remote Work Specialist
I am passionate about helping others live a life of freedom and flexibility.
Walking away from our corporate jobs was really SCARY! It took some time to build up the courage to leave. We wish someone had told us sooner that we didn’t need to be so scared. Working remotely and earning an income while traveling was possible–we just didn’t know how or where to look. If someone had just shown us the way, we would have jumped into this lifestyle much earlier!
I have worked remotely as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant, Course Creator, Blogger, Project Manager and more!
After learning the ropes about remote work I decided to launch Remote Work School to help other people navigate the remote work world. Click here to learn more.
Full-Time RVing – The Emotional Journey
I started a Facebook group called Full-Time Rving – The Emotional Journey at a time when I felt a little lost and lonely. I knew other people probably felt the same but weren’t talking about it, or didn’t feel comfortable enough to share. This Facebook group allows people to let their guard down and be vulnerable about their journey. Not every day is unicorns and rainbows, and it’s okay to talk about that.
The group has grown more than I could have imagined, yet it still operates as a small, supportive community where you can offer and receive support.

We’re Here To Help
The “in-between” stage is often the hardest because your heart lives in your future travel vision, but your head is stuck in the logistics of making it all happen. Then you hit the road and the first year can be difficult for some. The learning curve can be steep and broad, and then there’s missing friends and family. Even simple things like missing a bathtub can be hard!
I’m especially helpful to people who are in transition. I’ve experienced that transition firsthand, and studied transitions as part of my master’s degree in psychology. I have the perspective and skills to help facilitate a more cohesive, clear, and calmer transition for others.
