Hauling home for the holidays

In 2020, more of us hit the road than ever before. We cleaned out the country’s stock of RVs, iced our coolers, gathered up our pod, and escaped into the great outdoors to connect with family and take in a much-needed breath of fresh air. With the approach of the holidays, it was time to haul ourselves home...but we won’t stay there for long.

To celebrate this newfound love of the open road, and to bring the great American family road trip into the modern era, Matador has teamed up with the brand behind all your road-tripping essentials: YETI. Together, we talk packing tips, off-road destinations, traveling sustainably—even how to home-school your kids on the road. Whether you’re looking for a week’s worth of adventure or planning to make it a lifetime pursuit for you and your crew, start here.



This series is proudly produced in partnership with YETI.

Hauling home for the holidays with the Picketts

A family of four. A 1971 Airstream. 14,000 miles across the US, three oceans, in just three months. Just those stats tell you something, but it’s really the memories, the motivations, and the moments out there on the road that mean everything.
