It seems like people have jumped on the full-time travel bandwagon in recent years. Individuals, couples, and families embrace the lifestyle as remote work and learning become widely adopted by many.
However, some have been doing it long before it was popular. If you’ve not discovered Eric, Brittany, and Caspian Highland of Hourless Life, we’re about to introduce you to an incredible family. Let’s take a closer look at them and see how their story can inspire you!
The Backstory of Hourless Life
Eric and Brittany hit the road full-time in 2014. Then their son, Caspian, was born in 2016.
That means their son has spent his entire life on the road. That’s a pretty epic way to spend your childhood!
It wasn’t until 2018 that the Highlands came across the idea of driving around the world. They had two international overlanding adventures to Mexico and fell in love with everything about the lifestyle. On October 9, 2021, Hourless Life crossed the US border into Mexico to start their epic international adventure.
As a family, their mission is to “Love. Explore. Study. Share.” Everything they do as a family and on their channels is to help fulfill their mission.
They want to love people while exploring and studying the world around them, and they want to share their experiences with others. They seek to inspire and encourage others to either follow in their tracks or create a whole new path for themselves.
What Type of Vehicle Does Hourless Life Travel With?
While many travelers hit the road in RVs, Hourless Life travels in a Jeep Gladiator they’ve named Dauntless. However, this isn’t just any Jeep Gladiator.
Over seven weeks, the couple visited a handful of different shops to get their Gladiator ready for a 10 to 15-year journey around the world. They upgraded their suspension and electrical system and added an auxiliary fuel tank, among other mechanical upgrades.
They have a solid understanding that you’re never really done upgrading a vehicle of this sort. However, while they may have had less money in their bank account after the build, they had everything they needed to hit the road.
The Future Travel Plans of Hourless Life
They plan to travel the world as a family for the next 10 to 15 years and see every habitable continent. They plan to raise their family on the road and share their adventures with their followers.
