Roadtrip Rediscovered 


Life with the Beckers - The Ultimate Utah Roadtrip - Ep5

Like many National Parks, Zion has a free shuttle that will take you to many of the main stops along the Canyon Scenic Drive. What we didn’t realize, is that when the shuttle is running during the summer months, absolutely no private vehicles are allowed on the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive!! The only access through the scenic drive...
Life with the Beckers - The Ultimate Utah Roadtrip - Ep4

After spending the previous day at Arches and Canyonlands, we woke up at the KOA in Green Riverand headed out to Capitol Reef which was about a 1.5 hour drive. Again, we knew going into this trip that we would have our dog, Chevy, with us and according to National Park...
Life with the Beckers - The Ultimate Utah Roadtrip - Ep3

When we arrived, we found a pull out where we could pop up our iKamper to enjoy lunch before exploring the park! One reason why we wanted to get a rooftop camper was because we loved our experience renting a camper van in Yosemite, and wanted a similar feel for our jeep! We...

Life with the Beckers - The Ultimate Utah Roadtrip - Ep2

The Great Sand Dunes were so cool! The juxtaposition between the sand dunes and the big mountains in the background was so wild! We were there in Mid-May, and the temperature was chilly and it was so windy. They were actually advising people to wear long pants and shirts because...

VUELTAMERICA - EPISODE 16 RECAP

Entering into the Overlanding lifestyle, we didn’t have a good feel of how much we would get to camp along the way, but we were so surprised with all the camping opportunities at any given place with the pop-up iKamper. We ended camping a grand total of 148 nights along...
VUELTAMERICA - EPISODE 15 ARGENTINA

This massive country is known for its wide ‘pampas’ grasslands, BA’s sexy tango dance, and more juicy meat parrilladas than you could imagine. The Patagonia region is shared by Chile and Argentina, so we hopped back and forth between the two (8 times actually) snaking around the Andes peaks and...

Vueltamerica - Episode 8 Costa Rica

“¡Pura vida!” When visiting Costa Rica, the number one phrase you have to learn is “Pura Vida.” Although it literally translates to pure life, it is a way of saying that something is cool, something tastes great, and even a way to say hello. But to the ‘ticos’, it is...
Vueltamerica - Episode 7 Nicaragua Tour

We needed to be strategic about the next few countries, as there was reported political unrest and protest due to a recent election in Honduras. We were advised to not stay the night in the country and just drive straight to Nicaragua. We were pleased to still be caravaning with...

El Salvador, home of delicious ‘pupusas’ and beautiful Pacific beaches. A pupusa is a thick homemade corn tortilla, stuffed with a variety of delicious options such as cheese, beans, and pork, and served warm. Driving into El Salvador, ‘pupusas’ were our first priority.
