Family winter roadtrip was amazing. We skied above Silverton - neither of us could keep up with doggo who kept us going with his promises of "deep powder stashes just ahead." We still managed to climb some ice, despite forgetting a harness. And we really enjoyed getting to know and hang with some locals around Ouray. Always a pleasure to run into @truckgirl99 ! Boomer even met his dream dog girlfriend on a trail to Ophir pass. Sigh. We have to go baaaaack....

The most valuable things I’ve learned since being on the road for almost 2 years?
1. I’m always going to be okay
2. Life is beautiful; even when it seems scary
3. Human energy is priceless
What are your favorite life lessons?

It's been a very busy year so far and rather than keeping you all posted on the regular, I can't apologize for living instead and catching you up after!
This here is my first camping trip! Eva! Wait, what? Yes! First ☝️ Feb. 10-11, 2018.
First time in a tent (and I don't know why I always thought one could stand up in a tent.) First time getting up in the middle of the night and having to walk in the darkness (with headlamp) to the toilet or .... outhouse?🤔 I don't know much about camping but I am learning!
It was our first overnight trip to Joshua Tree through the Wilderness Travel Course (WTC) and it has all been new to me from day one.
Goal was to summit 4377' class 3 scrambling - yes new to me too and from what I was told it was about a 3-4 mile hike from our starting location.
In the spirit of transparency, almost everyone was able to summit. Almost as in except for me. I was tired, hungry (as usual) and frustrated and I made it to the base which was maybe just a few feet below? I don't know exact distance... maybe someone can post it and I can update the post.
Maybe I'll try it again... maybe I will not. At this time I don't really know. What I do know is that it was a great learning experience and I am proud of having attempted it and giving it my all in that moment, as I always do.
You win some, you lose some but if you give it your all, listening to your body and respecting your limitations is a good thing and I encourage all of you to go out there and try whatever your heart pulls you towards and you will certainly win some, but there may be a time or 2 where you lose. Please don't beat yourselves up for those moments. Instead enjoy the fact that you tried. You have to respect your limitations and always, always, always listen to your body so it can always take care of you!

#latergram back in Arches national park. It was freezing so got lazy on the hikes but it was a great park. Canyon lands was better though, imo. Now, after a couple weeks of having a real kitchen, there's a tiny part of me that missed car cooking. My set ups changed a bit since I went through Utah but I'm excited about exploring Oregon and Washington in April and getting to use this again.

We’ll start reposting a photo every week - tag us in your travel photos for a chance to be featured! Bryan also wrote a guest blog for our website, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Coming soon ✨
Everytime I meet my friends and family they will be amazed and ask how can the 3 of us fit in the back of the car! So here in these 3 pictures shows how we position ourselves. It doesn't seem that cramp after all isn't it? It's a good time to be petite. 😂

I get many questions asking does Elisha sleep well in the car? The answer is YES. 😄
For some reason she really liked sleeping in the car, even in such a small enclose space. And she slept so soundly that even when we talk, it didn't bother her at all. Unlike at home where even the slightest noise can get her flipping. We were pleasantly surprised. 😍

Our first night sleeping in the car for this road trip!
Since the first road trip we stayed in the car, we have been looking forward to more car camp sessions this time round. Our car is a Subaru SUV. When we lay down the back seat, the whole space can fit the 3 of us just perfectly and I get to stretch my legs fully. This is the only time I'm thankful that I'm not that tall 😂
I have always been dreaming of staying in a caravan and doing road trips. I blame Enid Blyton for this. Since young I'm a huge fan of her books. I could seat and read her book all day. Her series on The Carvan family is my favourite and I still remember some of the stories from it. Anyway so this is probably the closest and financially sound thing for us to do for now. Hopefully we get to own a caravan of our own someday.
