Currently living/working in: The Superfeet Supervan!!! Only 6 stops left on our NZ speaking tour and 4 weeks!!  Current mood: I’m a little overwhelmed these days. Road life is blissfully chaotic and though we stay on top of most of it, being disconnected and on the go poses challenges. Road life is equally carefree, so…

California Tour Recap

Are you tired of hearing about California??? This is it … the last post with a quick recap of our New Zealand Speaking Tour stops, I promise. When we were planning our tour—which has been primarily West Coast-based—we debated how many stops to do in California. Do you guys realize how big of a state…

Meet the SuperVan!!

It is time to unveil the innards of our summer home on wheels. Reminder: this van is BORROWED and we have to return it to Superfeet in late July after our NZ speaking tour (sniff sniff). But I digress. We have traveled more than 2,000 miles in Superfeet’s converted Sprinter van for since picking it…

Currently living/working in: The Superfeet Supervan!!! We are 1/3 of the way through our summer speaking tour around the US (2000+ miles) in our borrowed Sprinter van. The van is awesome and I can’t wait to share interior pictures!  Current mood: This road trip/speaking tour is totally our jam, so I would say happy everyday!  Currently excited…

Pacific Northwest Tour Recap

First of all, can I just tell you how much I big puffy heart the Pacific Northwest? Our time in Washington & Oregon has been full of presenting and playing and almost immediately, I said to Justin, “we need to move back to the PNW one of these days.” From the moss-covered hemlock and douglas…

Southwest Tour Recap

We’ve done 6 presentations–2 in New Mexico and 4 in Arizona–thus completing the Southwest leg of our road trip. All the events were at smaller stores, but it’s always nice to ease in with a more manageable crowd. Incredibly enthusiastic listeners nonetheless, and it is awesome to be standing up in front of people again…

Currently living/working in: We just wrapped up our 5-week spring teaching session at Fenton! It went so, so fast, but was so, so busy and tiring. We had kindergartners, 1st graders and 3rd graders this go around. Nonstop from Monday late morning until Friday at 1pm. Chock full of: campfires, tree identification, Leave No Trace,…

Cars Vans Cars Vans.

It’s been a whirlwind of vehicles for us this month. In case you didn’t hear about some of the excitement—and also because my head spins sometimes—I’m here to do a recap. We sold our beloved “Wanderer” 1995 Chevy Roadtrek. We only owned it for 8 months and put 10,000 miles on it, but we knew…

Back On Tour

Try to contain your excitement … our 8-stop New Zealand Te Araroa speaking tour is picking back up! We only have 3 stops left and they are here in Colorado (for now … future continuation of speaking tour is a possibility). These last 3 stops are pretty significant. The registrations show that 280+ people have…

Currently living/working in: Well, we made it to Colorado! And right now, we are in the midst of getting our Wilderness First Responder Certification (more on that in another post) Current mood: Busy and tired! Who knew a daily schedule of 8am to 5pm (our 10-day class schedule) could be so brutal???  Currently excited about: Winter…

Midwest Tour Recap/Visits

Our Te Araroa speaking tour took us through the Midwest, somehow magically without any winter weather. All 4 stops–Columbus, Indianapolis, St. Louis & Kansas City–were awesome. We both love, love, love standing up in front of people and educating them about our passions and adventures. But I think the thing I enjoy even more is…

Thanks and giving

Cliche or not, I would like to jump on the bandwagon (albeit a few days too late) and tell you what I am most thankful for this year. Well, besides the obvious thankfulness for surviving my blood clots in my lungs, that is. I am most thankful for y’all. This summer while we traversed the…
