RVing Highlights

  • Started RVing ON MY OWN in 2015. I did my own driving (including backing up, LOL!), my own planning, spent many nights alone in my RV at RV friendly truck stops or Walmarts or public land, and did just fine. Never scared.
  • Spent almost 6 years as a full-timer, before transitioning into part-time RVing in late 2020.
  • 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 so I could see Garbage in concert in Albuquerque, NM.

My First Night On The Road - May 2015

Kelly And Camp Addict

Having already been a writer for a nationally published magazine, VIE Magazine, I already had that skillset to bring to the table for Camp Addict. Here's one of one of my VIE articles: Banff National Park.

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

I co-founded Camp Addict with the intention to help others learn the ropes the easy way.

Having learned quite a bit after about 2 years of RV full-time living, and LOVING the lifestyle, I was ready to make a huge career change: To make a living through the internet as a full-time RVing digital nomad while helping others fulfill their RVing dreams.

Desk with a view!!

I have a much better sense of design and better creative writing skills than Marshall, while he has all the technical expertise to bring to the table.

We both have the full-time RVing and boondocking skills so we both have our strengths when it comes to subjects. Marshall usually writes the more tech related posts, I write more of the RV living type of posts. Though as of late, Marshall has been busy working on back-end stuff.

This site is nothing if we aren't ranking for anything, because then nobody sees and benefits from our information at all!
