Erica Ness and her husband first bonded over their love of tiny homes. In 2012 and 2013 they built and moved into their own tiny home. In reality, tiny home living is much more complex than what we see online in the fancy photos or on the television shows.

Erica brings to this podcast her practical knowledge gained from living in 280 square feet of living space with a husband and a large dog. She talks about the process of designing, building, and living in their tiny home.

Erica is a self-proclaimed packrat and she and her husband are both avid outdoors people. Learn on the show how to manage a lot of gear in a small space and why Erica says to not just get rid of everything at once when you move into a tiny space, which is different from many of the shows you see on television.

She talks about moving their house from Northwestern Montana to Northwestern Washington over the Cascade range. As well as moving the house in Montana and a funny story about why you should make sure your doors are always properly latched in a tiny home.

On a side note, Erica is my youngest sister and joined the podcast from her neighbor's house. If you ever wanted to learn about how to live more simply take a note from my youngest sister and her husband.

Britany Felix sold practically everything to spend two months exploring the Western United States. She hosts the Living Unconventionally podcast where she interviews people who’ve ditched their traditional life to chase their passions around the world and she hopes to inspire others to live a life that truly fulfills them.

Britany joins the podcast this week to talk about her experience downsizing from a two-thousand-square-foot house into a small pull behind camper to travel the western United States. She talks about how friends and some wine and Facebook Garage Sales helped her declutter her life.

We talk about how you handle the sentimental things that you have inherited over the years from friends and family. Britany tells us a bit about her two week period of life on the road and her podcast Living Unconventionally helped her to make the final push to start creating a life she wanted with her husband.

Britany answers a few of my questions on how to get started on your own journey. She also gives us information she has gleaned from over 100 interviews with people who have gotten off the 9-5 track and now find themselves living unconventionally. Take a listen to this week's podcast and enjoy learning about Britany and her podcast (and ebook) Living Unconventionally.

Mandy Baskin found her love for Hot Air Balloons after a disappointing date. One ride would drastically change the direction of her life. She is the founder and owner of Monticello Country Ballooning, mother of one, and is the only woman to have competed in all six years of World's Toughest Mudder -24-hourr obstacle race. 

Baskin joins the podcast this week to talk about being a female Hot Air Balloon pilot and how she is one of the very few women in the industry. We chat about how one becomes a Hot Air Balloon Pilot, the process and how she went from working in the restaurant industry to becoming a pilot.  

We chat about how it feels to be up in the air in one of the original forms of flying and I ask how the industry has changed in the last couple hundred years and what has remained the same. Mandy talks about the challenges as a small business owner in her industry and what it was like to first go to safety conventions being one of the only females in the room.  

She chats about being a single mother and how her daughter already wants to work for her mother and currently helps out as a chaser for the balloon. We dive into her other job as a nurse and she gives advice on how NOT to do nursing school.

Finally, we round out the episode talking about her six years at World's Toughest Mudder and what she has learned from each year of racing. Baskin continues to be one of the quiet competitors each year at the race. She shares her wisdom and advice for those interested in trying World's Toughest Mudder.
