We’re the Bennetts, Justin & Briana, and it’s time for a change! We've left our jobs and everything else behind to start fresh somewhere else. They say it's all about "location, location, location," and what better way to figure out the best location for us than to explore the entire country searching for it? We’ll be driving across the continent with a truck and travel trailer on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime! Tag along with us and our two dogs, Meaty and Saucy, as we explore North America searching for our next destination!

What's a little rain and near-freezing temps?! Our ticket to a private tour! The rainy weather and frigid temps in the 40s worked to our advantage when we were strolling around the San Antonio River Walk practically having the entire place to ourselves! {...}⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #riverwalk #sanantonio #sanantonioriverwalk #visittexas #gorving #rving #roadlife #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvtrip #rvlife #rvlifestyle #rvliving #stayandwander #getoutandexplore #roadtrip #ontheroad #ontheroadagain #neverstopexploring #goexplore #nextdestinationunknown #exploretexas #crosscountryroadtrip #texasroadtrip #travellife #igtravel #travelgram #travelingram #instatravel #instago⠀
Believe it or not, when we visited San Antonio before, we didn't make it to The Alamo. I know, I know... shame on us! Not quite sure how that happened, but we remembered The Alamo 😉 and made a point of visiting this time around!⠀ ⠀ Where have you been where you missed the main attraction? Did you make it back another time to see it, or is it haunting you?⠀ {...}⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #rememberthealamo #thealamo #sanantonio #visittexas #gorving #rvers #rving #roadlife #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvtrip #rvlife #rvlifestyle #rvliving #wanderlust #stayandwander #getoutandexplore #roadtrip #ontheroad #ontheroadagain #travellife #travelers #neverstopexploring #goexplore #nextdestinationunknown #adventuretime #adventureculture #adventureisoutthere #adventureawaits #adventurelife
We spent a few nights in San Antonio, and it rained the entire time we were there! We had been to San Antonio once before when we were staying in Austin and drove down for the day. That trip was before our year-long road trip across the country in search of our next home and is actually what kind of sparked the idea for it. We were living in SoCal at the time and were ready to move on but didn't know where we should live next. We had some friends living in Austin and had heard good things about the Live Music Capital of the World, so we flew in for a week to scope it out. While Austin is a great city, it wasn't quite what we were looking for, so we started thinking about other places we'd potentially be interested in living and want to check out. That snowballed and turned into us having to see each of the Lower 48 States, which evolved into a cross-country RV trip for a year! Our lives were forever changed from that first Texas trip! We're curious, what was your AH-HA moment? {...} • • • #koa #sanantonio #sanantoniotx #visittexas #gorving #rv #rving #roadlife #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvtrip #rvlife #rvlifestyle #rvliving #wanderlust #stayandwander #getoutandexplore #roadtrip #ontheroad #ontheroadagain #travellife #travelers #neverstopexploring #goexplore #nextdestinationunknown #adventuretime #adventureculture #adventureisoutthere #adventureawaits #adventurelife
