Outshine is Transforming to Vanlife Full Time!

It's really happening y'all! We're stoked to announce we accepted an offer on the house and are downsizing our lives to fit in a camper van to travel the country for 6 months! Departure day is in 2 weeks!

First stop? Kansas City to visit our friends at Vandoit and pick up a new MOOV model to start our cross country adventure!

The Outshine van will stay in Chattanooga and continue to be available for rentals through the Nomad Be Happy rental platform, so if you’ve been meaning to take an adventure you still can!

We’ll be visiting fellow Nomad be Happy rental vans in SLC, San Diego and Bryson City along our road tour and setting up events for folks to see the new MOOV model in person in various cities across the country.

We’d love to connect with other Vandoit owners, outdoor adventure seekers, queer folks and nomads along the way. If that’s you, drop a comment and let us know where you are.

Big thanks to Angela Pierce – Austin Sizemore Team for helping us sell our sweet little home so quickly!

What does this mean for Outshine Adventures? We won’t be offering tours in Chattanooga this year. Instead, get ready for vanlife content, travel tips + new outdoor adventures.

We can’t wait to share new adventures in new places with y’all! Be sure to follow along at Outshine Adventures and Nomad Be Happy!

Sunshine and Michelle beaming bright here in Salt Lake City, just one week into our road tour! This vibrant metropolis nestled against the Wasatch Mountains surprised us in the best way possible.

Travel Guide: 24 Hours in Dinosaur National Monument

During this road tour we’re all for spontaneous detours that lead to epic adventures, and discovering Dinosaur National Monument on our way to Salt Lake City, blew our minds and our van doors wide open! This hidden gem wasn’t originally on our 6-month itinerary, but thanks to The Dyrt app, we found the Green River Campground and stumbled upon a fantastic stopover on our way from Steamboat Springs to Salt Lake City. Spend 24 hours camping and exploring Dinosaur National Monument with us!

Travel Guide: 24 Hours in Steamboat Springs, CO

The first stop on our 6 month road tour was in Steamboat Springs, CO to meet the Hala Crew and pick up two new paddle boards to use as we travel. We only had 24 hours to spend here and made the best of it by paddling the Yampa River, biking the Yampa River Core Trail, boon-docking and finding some pretty tasty restaurants.

That’s a wrap on home life, time to try vanlife!

We’ve dreamt about traveling and living in a van since we got together almost 8 years ago and we can’t believe it’s finally happening! We officially closed on our sweet lil bungalow today and we’re on our way to Vandoit to pick up a new campervan to start our 6 month cross country road trip!
