We’re on a mission to share the idea of full-time RVing with the world! It’s an amazing experience that has opened our eyes to the beautiful world we live in. Join us on this mission to spread the word!

Meet The Team

Justin Lewis & Joelle Phillips, Founders and Editors

Open Road Chronicles began as a personal travel blog in 2014. It chronicled the travels of Justin Lewis and Joelle Phillips as they sold everything, bought an RV (2005 Coachmen Chapparel 271RBS), a truck (2008 Ford F-250 6.4L), and packed up a motorcycle to travel the country with their dog.

In 2016 they sold their RV and truck and traded them in for an apartment in California, shortly after they moved to Oregon and then Florida.

As of 2018 they’re now parents to a beautiful girl, Emma, and have two new cats found while traveling. Their journey is continuing as they’ve repurchased a new truck (2011 Chevy 3500HD), fifth wheel (2017 Forest River Sierra 377 FLIK) and hit the road once again!
