↟ Break Away Tale NR 157 // @autumnabailey

Hi I’m autumn bailey. My husband Rusty, myself, and our two sons Oak and Bear (with another on the way) originate from the mountains in California, and travel around the country in a remodeled toyhauler trailer for my husband job. Our journey into tiny living was kinda like getting pushed into an ice cold pool fully dressed.⠀

Rusty is a welder, and was coming off of a 6 week maternity leave after we had our first son, when we got a call from his job saying they were sending him to a brewery in Richmond Virginia and he needed to be there in 10 days. We pretty much decided to commit to trailer living that day, went out bought a trailer, threw out all our stuff packed the rest and hauled across the country to Virginia that week.⠀

It was a whirlwind of nerves and excitement and although it’s calmed down and isnt stressful anymore, the excitement hasn’t stopped. We’ve been lucky to get sent to some cool places, Rusty’s gotten to work on mainly breweries the last 2.5 years, and it’s been a blessing that we get to do this together. Our children get to see that the world is bigger than their backyard and we get to raise our babes together as a family, I couldn’t be more grateful for this amazing lifestyle.⠀
