Idaho Summer of 2021

We spent the entire summer of 2021 in Idaho. We didn’t have a lot of work lined up for this summer, as big film shoots were still canceled with COVID, and we honestly just didn’t seek out a lot of work so that we could actually enjoy our summer and get to experience a new place fully. We had a […]

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 […]

Bringing Back the Friendship Cruise

  Overloaded mini-jetboats, 170 miles of remote riverways, a portable Traeger and a crew willing to stop at nothing- this Memorial Weekend we set out to resurrect “The Friendship Cruise”, a river trip that used to be ran through Canyonlands National Park starting in 1958. We ran 122 miles downriver from Green River State Park to the Confluence with the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cactus Touring: Anza Borrego, Yuma, Organ Pipe, and Quartzite, Arizona

After a change in previous plans, we had to figure out where to spend the month of January, and ended up flocking to all the popular spots for full-time RVers (“snowbirds”) that spend their winter in these warm southern areas. CALIFORNIA:  Joshua Tree Joshua Tree National Park and the BLM land at its south entrance is a mecca for RVers […]
