We are Val Weston and J. Brandon, the folks behind Propane and Bourbon. We’re happy you found us.
We’ve both been traveling extensively since we were kids. In early 2016 we bought a 26-foot toy hauler travel trailer and took quite a few trips with it around the western US.
In December 2019 we sold our house with a vague plan to live full-time in our RV, traveling and working from the road until we got around to building our new house. We joked that our little adventure might last for six months, or six years. We didn’t know.
Then, in the first couple months of 2020, the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic arrived. Our vague plans suddenly needed to change, drastically.
These are our stories.
Maybe it was growing up camping, canoeing, and fishing that turned Val into an outdoor and nature nerd. Whatever the cause, this former geologist, sometime naturalist, but all-the-time adventurous spirit, has criss-crossed North America, camping by car, motorcycle, and foot; solo and family; backcountry and front-country.

It’s a big leap from family camping trips in a vintage canned-ham trailer to living full-time in a medium-sized toy hauler with an awesome partner and a big, lovable dog. Add in travels in tent trailers, truck camping, and minimalist cross-country motorcycle adventures and that’s J’s roadtrip—and off-road—experience.
