2017 ANNUAL UPDATE
As We Travel These Miles
We started this year with only the slightest idea
of all of the places we would go.
South and then east was our plan
and that was to avoid the snow.
Who would have known
that by chasing good weather
we’d drive over thirty one thousand
We went coast to coast twice
across twenty five states
to a third of the four corners
and still so much awaits.
From islands and waves and deserts and caves
to mountains and fountains and forest and arcs
we visited 33 of 59 National Parks.
Realizing our journey is not yet through
what we thought would be one year
we’ve decided to make two.
The most common question we’re asked
is how do we do it?
So if you’re curious to know
here’s how we get through it:
We built our own house, a tiny home on wheels,
we use solar for power, a gym to shower,
and always cook all our own meals.
Two plates, two forks, two spoons, and two knives
we don’t have stuff we don’t need
to clutter our lives.
We work in the mornings
it takes some hustle and grind
but we always have fun
and make time to unwind.
But that’s about it!
That’s all that it takes,
most all that you’ll need to travel the States.
And oh, the people you’ll meet!
family and friends, strangers and rangers
campers and hikers and long distance bikers
Hitchhikers and scriptwriters alike,
they all have a story to tell.
Stories of history
and theories on mysteries of the earth.
It’s worth the risk and even some rejection,
to make a new friend and lifelong connection.
We could go on and on
but we don’t want to bore you.
See our websites below
with projects to explore through.
We thank you for you, for all that you do.
For all of the laughs and all of the smiles
for sharing your story
as we travel these miles.
Love, Christopher & Damaris
