King of the Road

And so it’s here where we begin our 14 month journey. What started nearly 4 years ago as “what if one day…” has turned into reality: a trip across, through and around the western United States.

We’ve put our careers on hold to explore, experience, but more importantly, grow closer as a family.

Our kids have been pulled from school in exchange for an immersive education on the road. They’ll keep journals and “guest write” about their adventuress on our blog. Along the way they’ll learn about the states we visit, their state parks, our National Parks and Monuments, and if we’re lucky, they’ll see the World’s Largest Ball of Twine. By the end of this trip they will literally be “Road Scholars.”

Follow us as we load up the truck, shine-up our Airstream and travel west. And, be sure to follow our Instagram account for all of the great pics along the way.

In the immortal words of John Muir, “The mountains are calling and I must go.”

We plan to shoot a ton of pics while we are on the road (once we’ve come to a complete stop) so be sure to check out our Flickr gallery. It should be chock- full of high-res goodness, and as much as we love the Insta, it will give us an opportunity to break out of the square.

“It is an incalculable added pleasure to any one’s sum of happiness if he or she grows to know, even slightly and imperfectly, how to read and enjoy the wonder-book of nature.”
