We’re Eric, Brittany, and Caspian Highland, and we’re driving around the world! We’ve already been traveling full-time since February 2014. Yes, that means our son Caspian who was born in 2016 doesn’t know anything other than life on the road!
In 2018, when we found out people actually drive around the world (we didn’t know that was a thing) we instantly decided we wanted global overlanding to be our next adventure. We fell in love with the overlanding lifestyle during two trial runs in Mexico: 2,000 miles in interior Mexico (2019) and 2,000 miles in Baja (2020). We went ALL-IN, actively getting ready to leave everything we knew in the United States.
On October 9, 2021, we crossed the border into interior Mexico once again. But this time, our home on wheels isn’t returning to the United States for 10 to 15 years.
Our family mission statement is:
Love. Explore. Study. Share.
Everything you see through Hourless Life is designed to fulfill that mission statement.
We don’t allow the media to influence our views of people we’ve never met. We believe people all over the world are very much like us. Each person has infinite value, deserving love and respect.
We’re going out of our comfort zone to explore this beautiful, wild world we’ve been given. Our vehicle will be our portal, our home. On roads and off roads, through water crossings shallow and unfathomably deep, our explorations will take us to every habitable continent over the next decade of our lives.
Along the way, we will earnestly study everything we encounter. We’ve learned that when travel is about us, it becomes empty and meaningless. But when we turn our focus outwards, especially to the people around us, we find fulfillment and joy. Caspian will be homeschooled, roadschooled, worldschooled (pick your term), with teachers of every language, religious belief, political climate, and gorgeous color.
All of our experiences converge here. As we love, explore, and study, we will come back here to share it all with you. We hope you will be empowered, inspired, and encouraged. Perhaps you will follow in our tracks. Or perhaps you will blaze a new track–the one you were born to follow.
You won’t want to miss this journey! And the best part is your ticket is free. All you need to do is sign up below, and you’ll receive fancy emails at each stop along the way. We can’t wait for you to join us.
You may recognize us from our previous travel blogs, RV Wanderlust and Jeepsies. When we opened a new chapter into full-time overlanding and driving around the world, we combined the best resources from both websites into one new platform: Hourless Life. We launched the Hourless Life brand in November 2020.
