This site is about us, Josh and Abigail Van Gelder, and the adventures we find. We are a husband and wife marketing team, we travel the country year round with mobile exhibits. It is a very unique job and unique lifestyle. We are joined by our little Scottish Terrier, Pippi, who has fans of her own. If you like travel and strange adventures then you’ll enjoy us.
More about our job, it’s not really a job, it’s a lifestyle. We are not truck drivers, but we live out of the semi-truck. Don’t fear, we stay in hotels. We work as a team, sharing the job tasks and responsibilities. When I say we travel I mean it; we are gone more than 320 days of the year. We call a few places home. We are both from Illinois originally and choose to spent time off with our families there. The company we work for, is a Detroit based firm. Lastly our mail goes to Southlake, TX. All are home to us.
Josh and I are college sweethearts who met at Western Illinois University, a love of Rugby and adventure brought us together. We are quite opposite in personality but that is why we work so well together. Our little fur baby Pippi brings us so much joy and makes us a family. After spending six post-college years in the Twin Cities, we struck out on this adventure. We’ve not looked back since. The work we do is challenging and rewarding.
What we write here is simply our perspective and experience, not that of MRA or our clients.
