About Adventures On The Rocks

Adventures On The Rocks (OTR) was created by Bill Widmer, a man with a passion for overlanding and adventure. Bill has years of experience traveling the States in RVs and recently switched from campers to his 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and rooftop tent.

Our goal is to help you get out in the woods, mountains, deserts and lakes to spend more time adventuring in nature and less time trying to figure out how!

On our site you’ll find overlanding guides to help you buy the best gear, build your rig, and find awesome places to wheel, camp, and explore. We share most of our adventures on Instagram, so be sure to follow us!

About Bill


Bill Widmer is an adventure seeker and explorer. He’s road tripped most of the United States in a motorhome, fifth wheel, and his current child, a 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.

He started The Wandering RV, a site all about RV travel that teaches people how to live in an RV, like he did for over a year, which has gotten millions of visitors over the last four years.

His latest passion is overlanding and his goal is to help people like you get out in nature and enjoy the world the way it was meant to be enjoyed — in it!
