The Great White Buffalo

So we bought a fifth wheel. And a truck to pull it. Because who wants to live in a regular old house, anyways?

Apparently not us.

Here she is! 32 foot fifth-wheel and a Dodge 3500 diesel. As with Free Range, we have been brainstorming ideas for the name: Land Shark (SNL skit), The Cottage, and, I think my most favorite to date: The Great White Buffalo.


We came to the decision after realizing that we probably aren’t going to be settling down anytime soon and that the next place – or places – we go may very well not be where we want to be forever. Stephane’s looking into testing the waters of the firefighting world – which means you go to where the fires are – or back to EMS – which means you have opportunities to move to different bases until you find the base / location which you are happiest. I’ve secured a few contract gigs working remotely. Sooooo, all signs point to us being mobile for now. Just makes sense.

The kitchen / living room / dining room.
Another shot of the bedroom.
Shower and bathroom (door to the right). Yes, the shower is in the bedroom and yes, there are gold-colored door handles and trim and the vibe is circa 1983 but it’s all about function over aesthetics, people!
Myra has claimed her spot. Right under the fan / air conditioning.
The “basement” (additional storage under the floor of the camper).

Because we have such few belongings, we were able to move in over the course of a few hours, find a place for everything, and still have quite a bit of unused storage area left. Many of the systems are very similar to what we had on Free Range so we are, essentially, on a Land Boat.

Bright and airy kitchen.


Home Sweet Home


So, lookout National Forests and RV parks, The Great White Buffalo will be on the move soon!
