Hello, we are Shane + Amy

Otherwise known as Shamy to our family and friends. These days we are nomads living and working on the road in our class-C RV, named Ralphie.

About Us

On April 1, 2021 we hit the road as full time RVers and haven’t looked back. Turns out the nomadic lifestyle suits us well. It was a bit of a rough road getting to this point but worth it in the end. We named our RV Ralphie, hence the website name Ralphie Rough Road.
