Hello! I had the pleasure of meeting Dan and Lindsay McKenzie back at Glacier National Park. When I heard about their new budgeting program I asked if I could share their story with my audience.
Dan and Lindsay McKenzie are full-time traveling RVers from Colorado. They have been seeking adventure together for 10 years now and have done a lot of international traveling, including living in Costa Rica. Before starting their blog, Follow Your Detour, and taking the leap into their dream lifestyle, they first made it a priority to get out of debt and save money. Through their detour, Dan and Lindsay have grown more passionate about pursuing their dreams and leading a fulfilling life. They created a budgeting program called Finance Your Detour in hopes of helping others achieve their own dreams. They love that RVing allows them to bring along their two dogs and be in nature as much as possible. You can usually find them on the river fly fishing, hiking to sunset spots, or at the local brewery. Below is their story. Enjoy!
