Our Home Away From Home

Welcome to our website!  It is wonderful to meet like-minded people who have a yearning to get outdoors with their families.  There is nothing better than sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows, listening to bird song, or picking up pine cones with our kids.

We love spending time in National/State Parks, earning Junior Ranger badges, hiking, and immersing ourselves in nature.  We also like exploring small towns and large cities; seeking new experiences, activities and learning opportunities.

The Fletcher Family

Our Story…

We are Laura and Troy Fletcher, native Californians who now call Charleston, South Carolina home.  We are parents to twins, Drake and Mia, who were introduced to travel at a young age and now have the travel bug just like their parents!


Roasting marshmallows with my dad and sister – Kings Canyon National Park, CA 1974

Troy and I both grew up camping but hadn’t thought about camping with our family until 2012 when we gained access to a 19’ Mallard travel trailer.  After our first RV trip (which was 3-weeks!) our family was hooked.

In 2015, we purchased a used Jayco 27’ bunkhouse trailer to take us across the United States to our new home in the Southeast.  We even lived in our trailer for two months once we arrived in Charleston!  It now feels like home.

We take our trailer out as often as we can; exploring the Southeast and beyond, creating lasting family memories with our family.  We hope to see you on the road.
