WHO IS SPONSORED BY WIFEY?

We’re MAK & Owen! We got married and then shortly thereafter hit the road. That was nearly six years ago as of March 2022. We left from Atlanta, GA and have been traveling all over North America ever since! This year we are starting off in Baja California, Mexico chasing waves and spear fishing. We’re able to live and work from the road thanks to our freelance careers as Designers, Photographers & Videographers.

HOW DID YOU START?

Camping has always been part of my life since I was a child. I spent every Summer camping in the Eastern Sierras of California with my father. When I got a 4runner, it allowed me to find remote places to camp outside of campgrounds. That is how my love for exploration grew.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RIG?

We’re currently on our fourth rig since getting back on the road. All were in an effort to find the right thing for the way we travel and our work. Thankfully, this one is here to stay! We live and travel out of a 2020 Toyota Tundra with a Norwalk Flatbed and Four Wheel Camper. Our home on wheels is powered by a REDARC Solar System and a Manager30 paired with two 100AH Battle Born Batteries. We have a snorkel, high clearance front bumper, light bar, winch, air compressor, rear locker… you know, everything you need to get in trouble, and then back out of it! ;) We picked this rig because it has plenty of space of all our gear for surfing, fishing, hiking, and rock climbing while also being comfortable for work. Work funds our continuous travels, so we were sure to build a rig that also made for a great office.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE TRIP SO FAR?

My favorite trip so far has to be the National Park Tour my family and I took in 2020. We went to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Glacier, Bryce Canyon, and Zion all within 10 days. I enjoy trips where I am able to explore with my family, and luckily, they love exploring as well.

WHAT ARE THE TOP 3 THINGS YOU CAN'T GO ON THE ROAD WITHOUT?

1. Food and beverages cold. 

2. Camera gear to capture the moments. 

3. Garmin satellite communication to keep in contact with my family while off grid. 

WHAT REDARC PRODUCTS DO YOU HAVE ON-BOARD AND HOW HAVE THEY MADE TRAVEL EASIER FOR YOU?

My current rig is equipped with the REDARC BCDC1225D In-vehicle Battery Charger, SBI12 Isolator and the Dual Voltage Gauge. Having a dual battery system is a must if you are running a portable fridge and have many electrical gadgets that require charging. What’s great about the BCDC1225D is that it’s solar ready. So even while I am parked, I can use the sun to keep my battery charged and topped off for the evening.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR SPONSORED BY WIFEY?

For a long time (the last two and a half years) we’ve been working on going international. Unsurprisingly COVID, tossed a wrench into those plans. We finally feel like we are getting closer to leaving the North American continent. We have our sights set on South America by the end of 2022 and we couldn’t be more excited. Though it isn’t where we were initially planning to headfirst, we’re adapting and couldn’t be more excited to step outside of our comfort zone again!

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ADVICE FOR SOMEONE WANTING TO GET INTO THE ADVENTURE LIFESTYLE?

From my experience, power has been an important aspect of my trips. Having a source of power has been a game changer. My advice is to get a REDARC system and a portable fridge. Having those two things makes a great difference. The rest is just basic camp gear and keep it simple so it’s less work and more relax time.
