The Blue-Collar Wanderers are married professional firefighters who love our family and are passionate about discovering the world in our own way on a blue-collar budget.

We often alternate tropical excursions with hunting expeditions in order to satisfy all of our adventure goals. Sometimes we can even convince our adult children and parents to come along.

We have learned to ask lots of questions, to believe that Forced Family Fun time can actually be fun, and that living below our means has allowed us to begin to see the world instead of wallowing in the straw of our empty nest.

We hope this blog will give other couples and families ideas and vision for their own blue-collar wandering!
