    The Detour

    Lightening, and fires, and bears, oh my! Sometimes life gets in the way of your plans. No, not even your meticulously calculated excel spreadsheet plans can stay perfect. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the West has been having more than a few wildfires recently. Sadly, our plans had to change because of the fires last month at Glacier National Park and current fires in the North…

    Yellowstone & The Tetons

    We’ve reached Wyoming! The Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks actually border each other and are two of the most popular parks in the country.

We’ve been through 8 states now (Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana) and looking forward to being on the Pacific Coast for pretty much the next month. Here’s a few things we’ve learned along the way.…

    A Day in the Twin Cities

    When Oprah asked Prince why he chose to keep his home in Minneapolis, he said that is was so cold it kept all the bad people out. I think he might’ve been on to something because our time here was nothing short of perfect. I can’t say I was really expecting much from Minneapolis, just looking for a spot to take a quick camping break. Now, this is one place…
