The podcast:

Off the beaten path

but not lost

Welcome to “Off the Beaten Path but Not Lost,” a podcast hosted by Tony, Kristen, Kylie, and Lexie. We are the Faiolas, a family who traded conventional life for a full-time RV lifestyle in 2019. Our podcast is an audio chronicle of our journey.

We share stories from the campgrounds, National Parks, Jeep trails, homeschooling experiences, and off-the-beaten-path adventures.

Buckle up and prepare for a journey as we take you “Off the Beaten Path but Not Lost.”

Hey adventurers! 🚐 

Did this episode spark some wanderlust, or did it remind you of one of your own off-the-beaten-path stories? If you felt that campfire friendship while listening, we would be super grateful if you’d take a moment to pop over to Apple Podcasts. Please leave us a rating, maybe say hi in the review section, and don’t forget to subscribe. It’s like giving a friendly nod to a fellow RVer on the open road.

Do you have a hidden gem of a location you think we should explore next? Or maybe a practical tip for full-time RV living? Leave us a message—this journey is all the richer when shared with the community.

🏞️ Safe travels, and see you down the road!
