With nine months of tiny living under our belt, we feel like it’s finally time to reveal who exactly Mr. and Mrs. TCP really are. Considering the people who read this blog already know our real identity, this won’t come as a huge surprise.
Our real names are Brandon (Mr. TCP) and Liz (Mrs. TCP) and we hail from the great state of Texas. Well, we thought it was the greatest state in the entire country, until we visited Montana. And let me tell you, Texas has some competition.
Brandon is the brains of this operation, just don’t ask him to do any math equations. He is the website builder, the graphic designer, the videographer, the photographer, the dump station extraordinaire, and the “roll up his sleeves to fix all of the things that break” guy. He is also the pilot of this adventure and has mastered maneuvering the Airstream in and out of some very (very) tight situations.
Something people might not know about Brandon is that he is quite the musician. He was in a band before we hit the road so he had a real chance on rock stardom at one point. Not only can play a ditty, he writes some pretty fun songs. His topics range anywhere from his affection for the dogs to songs about living in a trailer park. Watch out Nashville!
Brandon’s favorite form of outdoor activity usually includes pedaling or paddling. Hiking isn’t something that really excites him, however, most of the awesome hikes we went on really did light a fire in him.
Liz really is just along for the ride. She doesn’t really have much to offer in the skill department, wait, she is the one who keeps the blog updated. But if it wasn’t for Brandon, the misspellings would be even more rampant than they already are on this thing.
Her greatest skill is just convincing Brandon to do things he isn’t usually 100% on board with. Such as to live full time in an Airstream and convincing him that we just “have to save this dog or else it will die”. But in the end, he really ends up loving the decision he is forced to live with.
Liz is the “worker outer” between the two. She is the reason they have a rower jammed in the back of the truck, along with other various workout gear rolling around that could potentially knock one of us out if we ever get into a wreck.
In reality, she is just a 90 year old lady in a 28 year old’s body. She is in bed by 8PM most nights, loves to quilt, and is constantly yelling at people to get off the lawn.
Oh and she is also the reason we have four dogs. The first one was inherited, then second one was a trick, the third one was another trick and then the last one was a “life or death situation”, so another trick.
We are just two people living and loving (life) in less than 200SQFT trying to figure out the best life for us. Together, we love our wonderful families, our entertaining friends, and the endless adventures we encounter together.
