Living on the Road in North America

2016 Life on the Road!

[countdown date=”2016-05-05″]


Its approaching quickly – Life on the road in North America! We’ll be embarking on our 3-4 month journey. We’ve decked out “The Great Escape” with a bed and under storage. We’re planning to camp, hike, and backpack everywhere from Colorado to Arizona, California, up to Washington into Canada all the way to Alaska and back!

Here’s a rough idea of the road trip map with some of the planned destinations. Of course, some of this will surely change along the way and we’ll leave days up to chance, but these are some of the high priority spots on our route.
