On The Porch

  • NHK, a TV Station from Japan came to film a documentary on American RV’ers back in 2001 when we were getting ready to hit the road. It’s when we met the Nodlands (founders of They were the featured family that had been doing this. We were the newbies getting ready. There was another retired couple featured. The video link here is our section edited out.
  • ABC Nightline talked us into a piece in 2006. This is in 2 parts on Youtube because they used to only allow 5 minute uploads.
  • Wandrly Magazine, Nathan wrote one of our favorite articles.
  • Jim Swift from KXAN, ‘On the Porch’ did a couple of segments with us on our Austin, Texas life.

BNF 1.0 Picture Book A 2001 to 2007 website we’re too lazy to rebuild. Follow the gif flames…
yeah. That lame.

Barenakedfamily started as a family travel site back in 2001. We left a job, hit the road, and changed our lives for a lot better and some worse.

We’ve lived all over America.

Since 2001, we’ve been working to work together and have earned a living in tech, publicity, events, construction, and coffee.

The original site, developed with Microsoft Frontpage and html with a lot of frames and tables, documented our lives on the road in a monthly format with ‘experience’ excursions. We stopped updating it in Jan 2007.

Since 2007, we haven’t much kept up with the site, rather worked on various projects and sending the kids out into the world.

A bunch of traditional media happened with us – WandrlyKXANABCNHKThis; and this.

After 2007, Greg half-assed the site into a family album for the kids; we moved into WordPress, and went through design changes and random posts.

Around 2013, we went our different ways as kids started adulting, and Greg and Jenn started figuring out empty nesting.

Jenn wrote books about it, and enjoys keeping up with people on Facebook and Instagram. We also uploaded stuff on YouTube here and here.

Good luck with all that and trying to figure us out as we try to figure us out.
