Recreating outside of Vegas: Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead and Lake Mojave

  In end of February, we were headed to Las Vegas for a job, so we decided to see what there was to explore in the area. Red Rock Canyon: Within 30 minutes of downtown Las Vegas, and its a national conservation area, so our America the Beautiful pass covers the entrance fee. The area is a 13 mile one-way […]

October/November: Crater Lake and Cerro Gordo

After Canada, we made the drive back to LA for a few jobs. It worked out extremely well that we weren’t as busy with jobs during August and September when we had several friends visit and spent two weeks in British Columbia. But after all that play time up north, we were bound to get called back to LA for […]

British Columbia

We crossed the border into Canada and headed into Vancouver, even though it was completely pouring the entire time. Since we had done a lot of hiking lately (during our week in Glacier), Blake had an extensive list of places he wanted to check out for dirt biking across BC. Unfortunately, since it rained for two weeks straight, we didn’t […]

Seattle and San Juan Islands

After Glacier, since we were already so far north, we had to visit our friends in Seattle. I gave Mary and Danny about a years notice that we’d be visiting them at some point along our journey. I guessed that we would be visiting them in April or May, so I was only about 4 months off. They live in […]

National Park Road Trip – and visitors from Germany!

In August, Blake’s friend Toby and his girlfriend, Annika, wanted to visit us from Germany. They knew we were living on the road, so we planned a road trip with them. We started in Denver and they said they wanted to visit Yellowstone and Seattle, which meant a 1300+ mile road trip. Before you wonder how the heck we slept […]

Sierra Nevadas: Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Yosemite

We hit the road from Denver at July 4th and made the drive west for a film project in California. Here’s how our lives typically go while spending time in LA. We drive out to whatever film project we’re working on, which normally means parking the camper at the client or studio site (and often sleeping there). We try to […]

NEW CAMPER!

The process of switching to the new camper was a much longer process than we expected and we ended up staying in Denver for about 2 and a half months (also due to staying pretty busy with work during those months). We spent the next week taking everything out of the old camper, (storing most of it on Clinton’s lawn […]

Spring in Southern California

  It’s been a while since our last blog post, and we realized that the last three months have flown by! We left Baja with so many good memories and stories to tell well as the 20 tacos we had in the fridge from the Baja Burro, Ensenada MX. We also smuggled bags of grapefruits and limes that Blake thought […]

Baja Adventures 4: Bahia de Concepcion, Ojo de Liebre, Bahia de Los Angeles, and San Felipe

When we were finally able to leave Loreto, we drove an hour north to the Bahia de Concepcion. This is a beautiful finger of water on the Sea of Cortez side that we had noted on our drive south back in December. It was full of little inlets of water that looked super calm and blue, and we couldn’t wait […]

Baja Adventures 3: Tecolote, Balandra, and Agua Verde

For our third flight from Cabo, we went to New York City to film a music video. Luckily we were able to pack light for this one since we would be walking around NYC. Flying to NYC from Cabo though is a full travel day, and we didn’t get in until midnight, but we did find Chick Fil a in […]
