shot of the Zs on the beach

On the beach near Jacksonville, FL

We’re Heidi & Jeff Zapotoczny (hence that whole “The Zs” thing) and we’ve been living on the road since December 2016.

If you want to read the story of why we decided to hit the road, check out our We Did It post, and for the details of how we managed our transition out of owning a home and into living in an RV, read It Came Down to 5 Crazy Weeks.

We aren’t retired. People ask us how we afford this lifestyle all the time! Heidi runs a business as a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, spreading the word about the benefits and applications of essential oils. Jeff works full-time as a software engineering consultant, leading software teams that develop custom solutions for clients.

We prefer state, county, and city parks over private RV campgrounds since they tend to feature more nature, bodies of water, and walking/hiking trails. Taking our dogs, Auggie and Hal, out for multiple daily walks is a big part of our overall fitness routine. Otherwise we do a lot of outdoor workouts, hiking, and stand-up paddleboarding. Health, wellness, and paleo/primal cooking are big topics for us that we plan to write a lot more about, so stay tuned!
