About Us

We are two computer programmers whose shared love of independence and adventure spurred us to quit our jobs and move into an ’86 Dodge Ram van. Now we road trip across the USA as digital nomads—finding the joys of the small and the monumental and, occasionally, writing about it. Roam Lab documents our search for the magnificent, the odd, the tasty, and the brilliant from sea to shining sea.

A Perpetual Road Trip


Our Vehicles

It's been a long road to the right rig.

Our beloved vehicles have taken us across the country and back again. They are part of our story, shaping our route and trajectory. Our 1986 Dodge Ram van, Dodgy, and its successor Dodgy II—a 2015 3500 Dodge Ram truck—have each brought specific capabilities and limitations to the table. We’ve dirtied our hands with renovations and augmentations. Other times, we’ve had magnificent plans that have just fallen through. Either way, it all contributes to our story on Roam Lab.

From Roam Lab

There's always something new with Roam Lab. Sometimes we are exploring new wildernesses. Other times we are poking around strange bits of Americana. More often than not, we are working and contemplating the next steps to improve our truck living situation.

Boondocking or "free camping" is staying over night in informal campsites such as undeveloped campgrounds, parking lots, or driveways.  This can mean drastically different camping styles depending on the individual.  We have had our share of secluded nights in the wilderness and noisy truck stops.  The common thread through all of these? We didn't pay a cent for the site.
