OTGR 2.0 – An Update

So sorry to have been gone for over a month… things have been busy and sad for us recently.  We  have had family sickness and emergency travel to Alabama.  Our step dad is still not out of the woods and will have a long, hard recovery.  We are now back in Alameda, CA (in the San Francisco Bay area) – this is where our home base RV pad and shed are located.  Brenda and I have been talking about our future and what is next for us. Continue traveling, settle into one area, do a combination of both?  We absolutely love this area of California and decided we might want to invest in a tiny home that needs an eco remodel. We curently don’t own property and are excited about this possibility and the idea of another small project.  We are looking at homes under 1,000 square feet and today we are actually putting in an offer for a 500 sf home in Alameda.  See the map below to get a sense of where we are:

We love the Airstream and plan on more travel and open houses.  Simple, small footprint living is crucial to us whether it is an RV or a stick and brick location. Growing our own food and getting involved in community projects/resources is also super important.  We hope to keep the Airstream on our property and offer open houses, tours, possibly rentals, etc.  Our minds are swirling with homesteading possibilities.  Staying out of debt and making wise investment/lifestyle choices is at the forefront of our thoughts.  I wanted to drop a line and let you all know where we have been and what we are planning.  Of course every bit of the remodel will be covered here on the OTGR website.  Our mobile sustainable living project is transitioning to our sustainable living project.  The “green road” now includes the metaphorical road of life as well as the paved roads we travel on.  Follow along…


  1. So sorry to hear about your Step Dad – here’s hoping for a speedy recovery.

    I live in the Bay Area (down the peninsula) and I hope you get your place! I look forward to hearing about the transformation on this site 🙂

    • Thanks Gabs – glad you are so close! Checked out peanut free mama and love the site. Thanks for all the information!
