Currently Wandering » Outdoor Family, Adventure Travel, Simple Living - Family of 5 Traveling the United States in an Airstream.

For anyone that hears “coast” and immediately dons their swimming trunks, the Oregon Coast may come as a bit of a shock. There are beautiful beaches, but the vibe is definitely more rugged than its southern California counterpart.  Crashing, intense waves, cold water, and wind can make swimming a less than ideal activity, but no […]

  • Michelle - Great blog and post! We got to enjoy some of these places ourselves a couple weeks ago, including the Tillamook Factory. Love the Oregon Coast, can’t wait to explore more some day 🙂ReplyCancel

Over the last three years, our family of five has explored the United States while traveling full time in our Airstream trailer. We’ve been able to experience many different climates, adventures, and expand our outdoor adventure capabilities. We camp, rock climb, mountain bike, backpack and paddle whenever we can in addition to just living regular […]

When we originally left our sticks and bricks house in July of 2013 we had no idea what was in store for us. I woke up that morning and knew we were on the brink of something amazing, but the reality has been far more grand than either of us imagined. Today we have officially been […]

We turned up the winding canyon road and our excitement mounted with every foot of elevation we climbed. We turned off the main rode and drove the last few hundred feet up a dirt road to the very top of Powder Mountain Ski Resort. We crested the final hill and were in awe of the view that […]

  • Arah - Way to rally after a crummy night’s sleep – that takes some moxie! As does willingly going to a foam-rolling class. Love this review & the summit looks like fun! Thanks for posting!ReplyCancel

  • Pam - Thanks for posting the review! I love a photo heavy post! It looks like you had an awesome time even though the first night was a bit rough. How cold did it get that first night? What type sleeping bag did you use and do you think you’ll go again? I hope they do it next year. I’m game on flying across country for some fun like this!ReplyCancel

    • Jess - You know, my phone said it was only 40 or so, and I have a 32 degree down bag but that wind chill was unreal. They are making modifications for next year and absolutely I’m planning on going!ReplyCancel

  • Nate - I have a lot of respect for anyone who can make wise decisions after sleep deprivation. Way to go!ReplyCancel

Pre-travel I worked as a professional wedding and lifestyle family photographer. About twice a year I would attend a conference or a workshop for personal and business development. These ranged from 1 day local seminars to weekend long retreats where I would board a plane and travel to wherever the workshop was located. I loved […]

  • Pam - Sounds fun! I’m headed to a similiar (smaller) event next month here in Alabama that is hosted by Alabama Dept of Conservation. I look forward to hearing all about your weekend at the Outessa Summit! I’d love to do this one year!ReplyCancel

While attending college at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, I worked as a rafting guide for Outdoors Unlimited on the daily section of the Green River. I spent many a weekend in the summer sleeping out under the stars by night and navigating or swimming the rapids by day. I learned to soak up the sights, smells, […]
