Well, to be honest, there isn't a lot going on in the Northern part of the states that attracts us millenial city-slicker types. Don't get me wrong, we definitely enjoy a good National Park every here and there and long stretches of mountainous drives have been awe inspiring and great for our Snapchat stories, but … Continue reading Traveling across the northern states.
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 decided that we just couldn't get enough of Summer. Our friend, Summer, that is. Which is why we ended up back in Seattle for a second weekend of adventures in the city. After a week of frolicking through the Olympic National Forest, we made our way back onto the ferry and across Puget Sound … Continue reading Seattle: Part 2
From Seattle, we hopped on a giant ferry with our van house and made our way to the next destination: Olympic National Forest The ferry between Edmonds and Kingston was a crazy experience.

It is work day in the Greene/Nichols van household so I am finally taking the time to update you all on our current shenanigans as I finish my breakfast and morning tea under the cloudy Washington sky.
