Who We Are

In 2017, a wanderlust couple took a leap of faith, sold their house, and bought a brand new travel trailer to explore the country with their kids. TREKKN was born from their passion to share with the world their real life explorations of national parks, RV life, outdoor cooking, and just about anything related to an epic road trip adventure.

When TREKKN changed ownership a few years later, it was time to expand beyond the road warrior lifestyle. We celebrate the near and far to discover local living, weekend adventures, brag-worthy dining experiences, and everything in between. That includes continuing to reinforce our expertise in RV Living by sharing tips, recommendations, and insights based on real experiences. To that end, we expanded our distributed team of writers and support staff.

One thing remains the same and that’s our unwavering passion for travel, exploration, experiences and adventure.

So whether we’re delving into the tranquility of a serene lake, discovering a local art school, or uncovering the natural wonders of the most visited national park in the country (Great Smoky Mountains), we aim to provide our audience informative, enjoyable, and inspiring content. We draw from real-life, first-hand experiences to provide you with the best tips, advice, and recommendations to ignite your desire for adventure.

Whatever led you to our site, we hope you enjoy our personal stories, recommendations, and research. We hope our articles, graphs, tables, charts, and photographs inspire you to create a never ending bucket list filled with beach and mountain travel destinations, national park visits, local events, and must-try dining experiences.

Thank for being a part of our quest.

After graduating from college with a degree in animal behavior, Isabel O allowed herself some time to get closer to nature. She took a leap to the European countryside and hiked her way through Switzerland, Italy and Portugal before returning to the US. It’s clear now she was meant to be an outdoorsy gal as she spends her days camping and hiking the trails along both coasts and cozies up to the campfire with pen and paper to chronicle her travels. TREKKN is fortunate to have her on the team.

Josiah B gained invaluable experience while living on the road with his family, during which time he felt overcome with the desire to continue exploring.
