About Us


I’m Jenny and that handsome man next to me is my husband Brandon. I am the writer, decorator, trip planner, navigator, and cook. Brandon fixes everything. I may have more job titles than Brandon, but his is arguably the most important.

We met in high school and started dating when I was a freshman in college. A few years ago Brandon was crazy enough to move halfway across the country with me so that I could go to law school in Portland, Oregon (we’re originally from Texas). Then he put up with me through three years of law school and one very long summer of studying for the bar exam. Law school turns just about everyone into a neurotic ball of stress but he handled it like a champ.

Brandon previously worked in laser engraving but he’s done all sorts of things over the years. He’s worked on cars, been a welder, a ranch-hand, a fire-fighter, a furniture-mover, and he even worked on railroad cars for a while. He’s a pretty talented guy and there’s a reason he’s in charge of fixing everything.

We were married on April 23, 2016 and plan to spend the next year traveling the country in our RV, which we have named the Alpha 1. This blog will chronicle our honeymoon adventures as we explore the United States, enjoying all of the culture, history, and varied cuisine this huge country has to offer, as well as dealing with the inevitable roadside repairs we encounter along the way.

We hope you enjoy following along! We always appreciate your comments and feel free to contact us at Alpha1ontherun@gmail.com. You can also follow us on Instagram @alpha1ontherun.

  1. I’m confused about the name of your blog. Alpha 1 (short for A1AD) is a disease that affects the liver and lungs. Is your blog in any way related to that? Thank you.


    1. Hi Nancy! Thanks for the comment and sorry for the confusion. The name of our blog is not related to the disease called Alpha 1. The name of our blog comes from the name of our RV. We named our first RV the Alpha 1, a name we got from a song written by a good friend of ours. Click on the tab for “The Alpha 1” at the top of the page and you can read more about our RV and how we came about the name.
