About Us

Featured

Hi! We’re Rachel & Allen and we live full time in our 2015 Grand Design Momentum 385 fifth wheel toy hauler.  We travel the country for Allen’s work, often only having a couple days notice of where we need to be next. And we love it!

A Little Vegas Action

Hey all! We’ve been out in Vegas at the Sam’s Town KOA for three weeks now. I’m not having much luck in the way of gambling, but it’s been fun nonetheless! Allen won $200 yesterday though after our champagne brunch! Continue reading

My Idea of Family

We’ve had a lot going on the past couple of months. We went through some really personal stuff that I’m not going to discuss publicly, we’ve been bouncing around with work, and it’s just been an emotional time overall. What I am going to talk about is how living on the road, being in the tall tower industry specifically, gives you a different perspective on family. I’m specifying tall towers as opposed to cell towers because the industry is so small in comparison, and it’s what we do. It’s how we live.

We are Arkansans for a while! 

We’ve been busy! We were in Indiana for a couple weeks when we left Florida, staying at Lynnville Park Campground while Allen was working at the shop in Evansville. Well, he was, I took the puppies to my mom’s in Cincinnati for a week. I got to attend the annual festival in our hometown for the first time in a few years and catch up with some friends. I also got lucky enough to be there to let some balloons go by my brother’s tree. He’d been gone for 2 years on June 18th… Continue reading

Fundraiser Donation Requests from 100+ Companies (with links) 

This is an ongoing, updated constantly, list. So bear with me as I continue to organize and add to it! Lots of these are national businesses, but some are local Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky companies (for the Kentucky Chapter of The Cure Starts Now). I’m also adding some Canton, GA businesses (for the Hubble Foundation).

Working a job that tells you where to go has it’s benefits… 

We were down in Orange City, Florida for 2 weeks while Allen was working on a tower there. They finished up the Tuesday before Memorial Day and we were supposed to head to a job near Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Then the customer in Arkansas decided he didn’t want to be off the air while they worked on his line for his antenna so he was contemplating getting a standby antenna (so he could still broadcast but his signal just wouldn’t be as strong as the main one). So the company told us to sit tight while he decided. All the equipment was on the site in Orange City that they needed in Arkansas so we got a couple days off.  Continue reading
