Working my way up the East coast from West Virginia, I wasn’t entirely sure where I wanted to stop along the way, but one goal was clear: get to Maine. No specific reasoning as to why, just an unmistakable gut feeling that I NEEDED to get there.
“I wish I could do what you’re doing, you’re so lucky!”
Lucky? Me? Maybe, but not in the way I think this phrase (that I’ve been hearing quite frequently as of late) is meant. Continue reading
Three years ago, I told my supervisor at Navy Federal I wanted to travel around in a van. Jokes were made (as is only fair), and my spur of the moment wanderlust-fueled dream faded… for awhile.
One year ago, something changed: instead of talking myself out of this crazy idea, I simply decided to run with it. Full steam ahead. From that moment on, I was committed.

Tucked away in California’s corner of the Sonoran Desert lies Slab City, aka ‘The Slabs’ – frequently referred to as ‘the last free place in America’.
Now, I haven’t visited enough of America to back that statement up with facts… but based on my recent visit, I would venture to say it’s a pretty accurate description. Continue reading
Sometimes I try to avoid the over-populated touristy spots- the locations you see plastered all over Instagram, thousands of similar pictures showing the same (admittedly awesome) waterfall or mountain or sandstone arch.
