Oregon: Bend & Mt. Hood

  Bend, Oregon:  Well we picked a fantastic time to head to Bend, Oregon, right in the middle of the July PNW heat wave. Record temps of up to 115 were forecasted in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. Bend was only supposed to get to 108. As we left California, we drove all the way to Klamath Falls because we needed […]

Eastern Sierras: Mammoth Lakes, Tahoe Basin, and Lassen National Park

Since northern California is an area where neither of us have spent time, and we ultimately wanted to start making our way north for the summer, we decided to spend a few weeks exploring northern California on our way to Oregon/Washington/Idaho. As always with our lifestyle, our timeline also gets dictated by work, so although we explored Mammoth, Tahoe, Sierra […]

Spring Cleaning

We came back to Denver for part of May to scout for and shoot a commercial for Sena Technologies, and then stayed to see family for a few days. While in Denver, we took the camper off of the truck, TWICE in a week. Which seems like more than we normally take it off in a year. We hadn’t even […]

St. George Family Trip!

Blake’s family came to visit us in St. George for a week of camping and riding in the Sand Mountain OHV area in the end of April. We headed into St. George from Kanab to restock the rig and get a head start on finding a good camp spot since we’d be staying for 6 nights in one spot. We […]

5 Day Roadtrip through Kanab, UT and Page, AZ

Even after all the times we’ve been to southern Utah and even driven through Kanab, I didn’t know Kanab had so much to offer in terms of hiking and canyoneering. I started seeing a lot of people post about Kanab and it piqued my interest in planning a trip there.  There’s some real hidden gems near Kanab that are definitely making […]

St. George and Central Utah Hiking and Dirt Biking

  We’ve mostly been in Utah since returning from Hawaii with a couple days dipped into Colorado and Arizona. First we drove to St George to meet up with a couple friends during their spring break and did the following activities:  Elephant Arch in Red Cliffs Conservation Area: A short 4 mile hike mostly through a flat, sandy wash. It ends […]

Ridge Hiking to Ka’au Crater

  Our major goal of going to Oahu was to complete one big ridge hike. Oahu is famous for hikes along the skinny ridges on the tops of the mountains. I wanted to find one that wasn’t too dangerous in all the rain Hawaii had got recently. I’d read a lot of blogs and reviews on AllTrails that made some […]

Aloha from Hawaii!

I’ve never been to Hawaii, and Blake has only been to Kauai for work. We’ve been wanting to go for so long especially since Southwest Airlines started flying there and between islands. Our friend Sean reached out to see if we wanted to do a trip in March because he needed a break from work, and his own Hawaii trip […]

New Old Truck!

We left Utah in May 2020 when we got a few real estate film projects in Colorado, and went to go see family afterwards since we were so close to Denver. Blake and his brother and a couple of their friends are always casually looking on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace for new trucks, and Blake found one that he thought […]

February 2021: St. George, Mojave Desert and Lake Mead

  We visited our friends in Phoenix in the end of January (and to pick up all our packages!) right when a cold spell came through the area, and Phoenix ended up being cold(er than normal) and rainy. We were supposed to all go on a camp trip, but instead decided to do a day trip to Payson, AZ where […]
