Join us as we explore the world in our carbon-neutral, 4x4 expedition vehicle called The EcoRoamer. We are happy to share our travel adventures, family memories and homeschooling experiences as we journey down the road less traveled.

Hello world!

Welcome to EcoRoamer. This is our first post.  let’s see how it goes.

EcoRoamer on TV TONIGHT!

EXCITING NEWS! The EcoRoamer (and us!) are going to be on TV tonight at 9pm on Discovery’s Travel Channel. They interviewed us for their special: “Killer RV Upgrades”. It turned out really well, and if you want a sneak peak, you can watch it online, here: http://www.travelchannel.com/video/the-ecoroamer

We’re on Jalopnik!

I don’t know how or why, but the EcoRoamer was Jalopnik’s Question of the Day today! Hooray!! Check it out… http://jalopnik.com/5879931/whats-th…dition-vehicle bigpic_ceb0e0614fb92d269685a9cd518d2985.jpg

Smelly oxidation

Hi Tom, It’s kind of funny. The truck took 2 years to design, and another 2 years to assemble the 1,000+ components together, but people seem to be most interested in the composting toilet and the grey water drain! Yes – it smells bad. We treat it every once in a while and rinse the […]

Overland Expo 2011
