Hi, we’re the Cripps Family and we left the suburbs of Denver to go on Our National Adventure! Yep, we sold our house at the height of the market with the intention that if we ever found a charming small town we would settle down again. Until then, we’ve taken to the road to explore all the National Parks, Historic and Modern Landmarks, and have one-of-a-kind experiences.
We’re hoping this blog will help answer your questions in planning Your National Adventure.

Hi Everyone! I’m the proud mamma of three beautiful girls and enjoy nature and exploring the outdoors. I had just given birth to baby Khloe two months before we launched and was a little apprehensive about selling our homestead with a beautiful garden close to the mountains. Since then, I have embraced all of the wonderful sights and experiences our Nation has to offer. I have been able to capture it through creating all of the videos and visual content you see here and through our YouTube and Instagram.
I’m Andrew and when we started this journey I was completely out of my element. I’d always lived in cities and suburbs. Before we started, I could count the number of times I’d been camping on my index finger . . . once! I didn’t even know what a Fifth Wheel was and had never driven a truck, let alone a 23 foot Dually. Since then, I’ve done a lot of research and overcome a lot of obstacles as we’ve navigated quite quickly around the country. The sheer fear I had in my face when I couldn’t even back the fifth wheel out of its parking spot when we towed it away from the dealership is long gone. The time I thought our whole propane system was messed up, but we were just out of propane . . . lesson learned! How to fix electrical issues? No problem now. We’ve even towed through the Rocky Cliffs along Highway 1 (partially at night time). So, part of my desire to write this blog is to help answer some of the questions I had a hard time figuring out or finding answers on at the beginning of all this. Its also to help you all calm those fears if you are about to embark on Your National Adventure. So, please comment or email us if you don’t see something here you might want answer to.
