RVing Highlights

  • I am an experienced and independent RVing expert, having tackled solo travel and all the challenges that come with it since 2015. From driving and planning to boondocking alone, I have the skills and confidence to help others embark on their own RVing journey. I spent many nights in my RV overnight parking at truck stops or Walmarts or public land.
  • Spent almost 6 years as a full-timer in a travel trailer, before transitioning into part-time RVing in late 2020, then dove into full-time vanlife in 2023.
  • I prefer to boondock and basically loathe campgrounds. The last campground I stayed by my own free will (excluding Xscapers convergences) was likely back in October of 2018 to see see a concert in Albuquerque, NM.

Kelly And Camp Addict

As a seasoned RVing expert and writer for nationally published VIE Magazine, I co-founded Camp Addict with the goal of helping others navigate the exciting world of RVing (Here's one of one of my VIE articles: Banff National Park).

I also wrote a few pieces about my RVing journey for Vie.

With over two years of full-time RV living under my belt and a passion for the digital nomad lifestyle, I joined forces with Marshall, who brings a wealth of technical expertise to the table, to create a go-to resource for all things RVing.

Together, we combine our diverse skills and experiences to provide valuable information for RV enthusiasts of all levels.

While I focus on creative writing and design, Marshall tackles the more technical subjects. But no matter the topic, our ultimate goal is to help others fulfill their RVing dreams and make the most of this fulfilling lifestyle.

After all, what's the point of all our hard work if nobody sees it? We strive to rank highly in search results so that our valuable information can reach and benefit as many people as possible.
