At Outdoor Miles, we believe that “Life is better on the Road,” and we’re committed to making this ethos the cornerstone of our community. This philosophy isn’t just a slogan—it’s the heartbeat of our platform, inspiring every article, guide, and story we share with our fellow road enthusiasts.
The road, to us, is more than just pavement and dirt trails; it represents the antidote to everyday routine, a path to discovery, and a gateway to the wonders of the world around us. It’s where life’s best chapters are written, with each journey adding another exciting tale to our collective narrative.
We understand that adventure comes with its set of questions and challenges. From “How do I fix your RV Furnace?” to “What’s the best gear for my next camping trip?”, Outdoor Miles is your reliable co-pilot, offering answers, solving problems, and exchanging invaluable tips for the voyage ahead.
Our focus may be on camping and RVing, but our vision encompasses every kind of road warrior. Whether you’re planning an afternoon escape or transitioning to a full-time nomadic lifestyle, we’re here to support and guide you. Our goal is to cultivate a community where adventurers, wanderers, and dreamers converge to share their passion for exploration.
Join us at Outdoor Miles, where every mile traveled is a memory earned, and every road leads to new possibilities. Let’s hit the road together, seeking adventure, forging bonds, and living the life we’ve always dreamed of—on the road.
When I was younger, freshly out of high school, I started my journey of finding my life “on the road.” The day after graduating high school, I vividly recall sitting on a plane flying out to Colorado to work in Rocky Mountain National Park for the summer. While many of my friends were heading to the Jersey Shore for senior week, I was taking my first plane ride to somewhere new where I didn’t know anyone. While I can look back now, and it seems like a fairly mild adventure, my 18-yo self was entirely out of his comfort zone.
I remember experiencing a range of emotions that I had never felt before. It was a type of nervous excitement filled with doubt, fear, and a little humility. Previously, I only saw the Rocky Mountains in books and movies, but now I would see them for the first time, all by myself.
That feeling of seeking out something new stuck with me from that moment on the plane. The experience of starting a new adventure and reimagining my “normal” life was something that I would later learn to embrace and seek out. I also realized that it’s something I share with many others, and maybe you.
Now, nearly two and a half decades later, I still seek out this feeling. Yet, I am even more excited than ever to share those experiences with my young daughter and watch her find opportunities to embrace something that has been such a big part of me.
For most of my life, I explored ‘the road’ with a car, a backpack, and a tent. I didn’t need much, and the feeling of freedom made up for most of the inconveniences related to adventure travel. I didn’t envision any other way to do it, so I never looked.
However, when my daughter was born, the extra responsibilities of being a father and the challenges of parenthood led me to look at RV life. It was a new concept but felt oddly familiar. It was a seamless transition in finding adventure, but it came with a steep learning curve.
Lifelong learning is something I embrace, so whatever challenges I encounter, they become opportunities to learn something new. Early on in my RV journey, I reached out to friends, family, and complete strangers on the internet who assisted me in learning what I needed to know. As a result, I found a strong community among RVers, which I realized was invaluable.
When starting Outdoor Miles, my goal was to add to this community. By providing answers to common questions and helping other adventurers learn to become problem solvers, I can hopefully pay forward what was shared with me.
Over the years, I have covered many RV-related topics, researched trends in the RV industry, and tested the best products and tools to help you maximize your RV and camping activities.
Here’s a link to some of my independent research articles assessing the trends, products, and impacts of the industry.

I am also a published Author on RV topics, including my book: Used RV
At its core, RV life is simple and rewarding. It removes us from the day-to-day monotony of life and carries us on the road as explorers, seeking out our individual forms of adventure. However, just as with anything else in life, it evolves. There are new technologies, challenges, and ways to experience the journey. We at Outdoor Miles are excited to learn along with you and share in this amazing way to experience life.
Yes, life is definitely better on the road. We are so happy you stopped by and hope you do so often.
