We’ve all had that moment. The “what if I gave up everything and just…hit the road” moment. While our day jobs can sometimes seem overwhelming, monotonous, or less-than-inspiring, simply quitting and taking on a dream adventure just isn’t realistic for most people. Mark Christy and Nives Riddles aren’t most people though, and the Philadelphia couple have done exactly that.
After becoming fed up with their jobs, they decided a change was in order. The couple has a passion for the great outdoors, getting lost in the wilderness, and paving their own path. They decided to quit their jobs, sell everything they own (expect the camping gear, of course), and explore the path less-travelled for as long as it takes for them to get sick of it.
The couple bought a small military trailer and converted it into mobile living quarters. Towing the trailer is a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, a critical element in their ability to travel the kind of terrain they’ll encounter on their journey.
“The truck has gotten us everywhere we have wanted to go,” said Christy in a news release. “It’s completely stock, and has yet to be bogged down or leave us stranded. We end up in places where it could take hours to walk to a road to flag someone down, let alone get someone out to the truck for help,” she continued.
