Welcome to The Home That Roams.
This is a place to break free from your “stuff” and live small to experience more. Whether you want to RV or live on a boat, we’ll help you navigate the lifestyle and embrace minimalism so you can travel with your home.
Who We Are
We’re Ross and Morgan Youngblood. We quit our jobs in the Colorado Rockies in search of something new. A chance to get out of our comfort zone and lead a more fulfilling life of travel.
In five years, we have traveled full-time in an RV and on a sailing catamaran. We created The Home That Roams to offer an online resource for traveling full-time in an RV or boat. In addition to insights into the lifestyle, we’ll provide guides on downsizing and minimalism. We hope you’ll join us on the ride!
The Decision to Travel With Our Home
The story starts with an evening on the couch in snowy Colorado. That’s when we stumbled across an article that would change our lives — an article about a couple living and traveling on their sailboat.
Don’t get us wrong. We had good jobs, and great friends, and worked in a beautiful ski town with a wonderful community. By all accounts, our life was pretty grand. But something was missing.
Not too long ago, we had been happily paper-pushing our way to the next powder day. Then we looked up one day and realized we needed a change from the 9 to 5. And not just a change of scenery, we needed a new lifestyle.
What Were We Looking For?
- A chance for a new perspective
- Inspiration to ditch the junk that was cluttering up our lives
- Motivation toward a goal that would help us grow
- A journey to challenge us as individuals and as partners
So that was it. After three years, and countless hours of planning and daydreaming (and some minor freakouts), we set a date. We quit our jobs, downsized in a big way, and started this adventure.
What You Can Expect from Us
