Once we admitted that Going To The Sun Road wouldn't open in time, we finished up what we could in Glacier and abandoned the quest. I was getting excited to introduce Brooke to some more of my family, a particularly hardcore half of the bloodline that we're very proud of. We dropped down the southern … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park
We left Yellowstone on Sunday. It was amazing and we'll have a post about it soon, with some exciting new photos. Since then, we've gone through Cody, Sheridan, and are currently in Gillette. We've got some hiking to do today but then we'll get to Rapid City and make a sprint for Souix Falls by … Continue reading Mini Update – Gillette, WY
Life from June 17th to June 20th was chaos for us. We were left physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted with a lot still on our minds. Even more upsetting was the forced realization that the cause for our total exhaustion, a short stay in a homeless community, was an inescapable reality for a massive number … Continue reading Superior, MT – A discussion about homelessness.
We're getting breakfast as our last stop in our exodus from Olympic National Forest. We chose a popular and delicious place in Sequim, WA called Oak Table Cafe, coffee compliments of White Cup Espresso, both of which are locally famous. The weather this week has, for the first time since Nevada, been less than ideal. … Continue reading Mini Update – Sequim, WA
We've made it safely to Seattle and have a friend we're staying with who's showing us around. We're gonna dig into Seattle and the Olympic National Forest and hopefully have something to show for it when we come out next week. Current status: having a blast!
This is our view today. We decided it was time to wash all our clothes, blankets, sheets, towels, pillow cases, and seat covers. Brooke has busted out the art supplies and I am breaking from work to write this post. Looks like we'll be here for a while...
Although it seemed like Brooke would never want to leave the redwoods, there was much still to be seen. Having traveled through only one of thirty-something states on our list, we knew that we would need to keep moving if we wanted to have even a chance of getting through it all. With that in … Continue reading Oregon
After we said our goodbyes to Lance, Jed, and all eight of their pets in Chico, we climbed back into the van and headed up the Skyway towards another cousin of mine in Magalia. Magalia, California I hadn't seen that part of my family since around 2009 or thereabouts so we had a happy reunion … Continue reading Magalia, Subway Cave, and Burney Falls
After leaving Yosemite, Brooke and I acknowledged that we were woefully behind on our blog-and-photo duties. We agreed to take a short break in a safe area of Merced so we could catch up. We spent Monday and Tuesday in the parking lot of a TA Travel Station in Livingston where I had enough cell … Continue reading Monterey, California
Shortly before our last update, we said goodbye to my family in Redlands and departed to visit some of Brooke's relatives instead. We couldn't get enough of the scenery and accidentally left late as a result but the two hour drive put us into La Jolla in the early evening. After introductions were made, Brooke … Continue reading La Jolla, California
