About Us

David & Donna

Dating since 1982
Married since 1989
Parents since 1993
Airstreamers since 2021
Full-Timers since 2023

We met in high school and we have been together ever since! Together, we’ve traveled around North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania, and we can’t wait to see the final three continents as soon as possible! In the meantime, we are traveling around the U.S. and Canada with Al Denty.
 
The original Al Denty was our 2021 Airstream Basecamp 16x (pulled by our 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk), in which we traveled around the western United States. We sold Al to a wonderful couple and now we are in a 2023 Airstream Flying Cloud 30FB Office (Al Denty II) which is pulled by our 2022 Ram 2500 Limited Night Edition Diesel 4×4.  
 
We’ve been to dozens of National Parks together, but once we got our Airstream we decided to reset the “parkometer” to zero and start all over again. Since picking up our Basecamp in March ’21, we’ve been to 36 National Parks, with plans to visit every single one (you can see our full stats here)! Come along with us as we visit National Parks and state parks throughout the United States (and eventually Canada too)!

Pet Peeve: It’s David, not Dave. And please don’t call me Buddy.

Favorite Travel Memory: Still working on creating it!

Favorite Quote: When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

A former high school gymnast and coach, she’s a skier, cyclist, runner, chef, and frequent nurse and rehab counselor following David’s frequent injuries and subsequent orthopedic surgeries.
