Summer 2018: Settling in to our home after a 3 year road trip around North America in a Sportsmobile Van. During that time, #Vanlife became a life-style and we were riding the crest. Now, it's time to find out more about the Olympic Peninsula, and Port Townsend/Chimacum.

Spring 2018: Back in Port Townsend for a month or so, then off to Vancouver Island for some much needed spring kayaking. The Sportsmobile sold in a week of our return and we are now thinking about what comes next.

Fall 2017: We're headed back to New Mexico, but this time in the southern part of the state. Our route will follow Hot Springs along the east side of the Cascades/Sierras, then looking for more in Death Valley before spending a month in Faywood Hot Spring, NM. We will stay in the high desert through February of 2018 then head back to the Pacific Northwest.

Fall 2016: After a summer in Europe we ended up in the Four Corners where we have been learning about the Pre-Puebloan and Chacoan culture and visiting the remnants of the great houses.

We are on a three-year road trip around North America. Beginning in Juneau, Alaska and taking us across Canada to the NWT, Labrador, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Fall 2015 will move us south along the US east coast where we will spend a few months in North Carolina. We've been kayaking and backpacking using tarps and bivies for a long time, so the luxury of a Sportsmobile Sprinter Van is a novelty.

The Sprinter is called the Cabin.
