The Time that Jerk Bear Ate a Part of my Truck.

     We were camping in Tennessee along a forest service route near South Holsten lake. At an overgrown camp site called Low Gap. The drive itself was a long and windey climb up to the ridge, the road was pretty rough in most parts. There was a grave near the top as well, NOTHING…

Virginia Part 3. Who Knew Virginia was so Large?

I sure as hell didn’t. Here we are sitting in Mojoe’s Coffee in the town of Damascus, Virginia. Stealing wifi and sipping on some iced coffee, apparently no one in the south has considered putting ice in coffee as an option (Mojoe’s being the exception). This is the only iced coffee I’ve seen in a week….

EMERGENCY: Open When Hungry

BIG BIG Thanks to our sponsors at Rise Bar for hooking us up with their protein and breakfast bars.  We keep the A’Snax Box under our seats for quick release action.  It’s especially helpful for whenever we get a little lightheaded in our altitude climb, and the ingredients and flavors are everything you could ask…

Days 2-9: Part 2. Virginia Forever

(The featured picture is of Rob & Ronan walking in the dried up Mountain Lake, VA)  Rob was the one who introduced me to whole nature thingy.  I’ve always loved being outdoors, but besides Central Park (which has been my frame of reference for everything) and the adventures we’ve had together, everything is pretty much…

Days 2-8: Part 1. Everyone Waves in Nature

Sorry all about the delay in posting! It is very hard to get enough service and power to sustain a blog post, but we hope the snippets on our Instagram and Twitter have kept you satiated. We took the time we had in the town of Shippensburg to do a little bit of vehicle repair…

Day One: Home Base Meg

Welp, here we go!  Today we loaded up Bumi and headed to Shippensburg, PA where Rob’s sister lives only a mile away from the trail head.  This was the practice test for us to see how the car, the dogs, and us would hold up.  The original plan was the take backcountry roads and break…

We Made It!

We successfully funded our Photographic Journal! Woah, that is weird to say.   Not too long ago we were deliberating whether or not this was even a good idea, and now, people are telling us about how excited/inspired by us they are.  At first I was skeptical because I feared “who would care?”  You all…

Backpacking Mentality and Applying it to all Things. Pt 1

Sell All of Your Things.   We are going to cram our gear, our dogs, and ourselves into a little suzuki samurai we have dubbed “Bumi.” There’s a reason that we picked such a small vehicle to do this trip in. Both Chelsea and I are avid backpackers, we’ve gotten used to narrowing down what…

Do Not Resuscitate

Being that this is my first post to this blog I guess I should introduce myself: Hi, I’m Chelsea and today I made the decision to not bring back Locke in case his heart fails. Every night around 9PM Locke likes to piggy snort and hover around his food bowl to remind us that he…
