About JK and Kim

We’re JK and Kim!

We are husband and wife road trip lovers, camping lovers and parttime “#vanlifers” based in south central Minnesota!

We have been camping since we first dated in the early 2000’s, starting off in the California Sierra Mountains with a tent and basic old school gear stuffed into the back of JK’s vintage K-5 Blazer.

We now travel and discover all the beautiful places North America, and our home base region, has to offer in our 2019 self-converted Ford Transit high-roof campervan.

The quest for comfortable and affordable sleeping cots for tent camping led us down a crazy and pricey rabbit hole into RV life!

We have owned three different campers so far – A 19-foot Salem towable travel trailer, a 27-foot Thor Four Winds Class C camper (above), our mini Class A RUV Thor Industries Vegas 24.1, named Elvis.

(Seemed like a logical name with the brand Vegas!)

JK and Elvis!

We enjoy the room, twin beds and ceiling height in our Transit camper van and dream of someday being a part of the fulltime #vanlife movement.

Here’s how our story goes.

If you are new here, thanks for following our page!

It’s our goal to create a community of campers, travelers and dreamers.

Since JK and Kim’s paths joined in 2003 in CA, we have taken many road trips…from small day trips to long road trips out west to see the kids/grandkids.

We have decided not to fly anymore and just see our country from the ground in our camper. There is so much to see and we try not to go to the same place twice.

Nowadays, Kim is a busy and successful REALTOR® following her 35-plus year career in radio broadcasting. JK is semi-retired, which means he’s down from three professional careers to just one. He hung up his apron as a longtime professional chef a couple years ago and just recently retired from more than a decade in radio.

As a matter of fact, we had a very popular morning radio show together (called JK and Kim in the Morning, go figure!) for over five years on a 100,000-watt FM station in southern Minnesota before calling it quits. JK now focuses on his first love and longest career path as a photographer and freelance writer to help pay some of the bills.

We have many travel dreams on our bucket list that we will try and do as work schedules allow.

We have a YouTube channel (scroll down the page for the link) and a new blog on the way. We’ve been on this page for a little bit, so we invite you to scroll back and catch up!

We thank you for being interested in our journey-thanks for coming along!!!
