We are huge fans of adventure travel and getting out and really exploring the world around us. National parks, state parks, a random trail through the mountains, a swim in the creek up the road…you name it, we’re in love with it. There’s just something wonderful about disconnecting and communing with nature. To date, we’ve driven our packed-full Chevy Suburban through 36 of our 50 states, most of which we’ve been to, through, and thoroughly enjoyed several times. Call us crazy if you want, but it’s something we truly enjoy. I’d love to have taken the kids to all 50 states before we send them off on their own.
We come from a middle-of-nowhere town and I like to take every opportunity I can to show the kids that there really is life outside of here. I think that’s important.
