Staying in Fort Monroe was an overall great experience. We paid a 30 dollar fee to stay over night at The Colonies RV park. The grounds were filled with friendly folks and the staff was delightful 😊
The 30 dollar site was a dry camping site. We did find in other research that boondockers arent bothered much if they camp in the outer parking lots. It was pouring out so we just went with the paid option for extra security. °
If you are willing to spend the money the park offers access to the beach club which has a pool and it even has it's own little private beach area. Its walking distance from the National Monument, which is the largest stone built fort in the U.S. It was nicknamed Freedom Fortress during the civil war and has amazing history behind it. It's also really cool to explore 🇺🇸😎
We would have loved to stay somewhere for free rather then pay but we didnt see much free camping in Virginia outside of Walmart's 🤷🏻♀️ If anyone has any good free spots let us know 😁
Time alone in the Van... It doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s a tiny piece of heaven! ✨🚐
We hope everyone is having a great weekend no matter what your doing! ☺️🙌🏻 •
P.s Can you tell what @afl team we follow! 😝🙌🏻 Fun fact: The wall was built specifically for this poster! 🤣🐯
Wind Cave National Park, SD.
One of America's oldest national parks. Wind Cave is one of the longest and most complex caves in the world. Named for barometric winds at its entrance, this maze of passages is home to boxwork, a unique formation rarely found elsewhere in the world.
Sadly, when we were there, the elevator system was broken, denying all public access to the cave. Besides for walking around in a prairie above the cave, we were available to look at the cave entrance, learn from the rangers and feel the winds giving the park it's name. Although different than we wanted, it was still good to be there!
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Let me hear a “hell yeah!” 😂😜
That, my friends, is a @yakimaracks Skybox FILLED to the brim with giant @ziploc bags filled with @merrell shoes. I'll be wandering throughout the Upper Midwest over the next two weeks photographing for Merrell and @hikeitbaby. If you see our big ol' Jerry Lee chugging along be sure to give us a wave! Also, I have enough shoes to add an extra kiddo or two to a couple of my shoots: 9/4 in Two Harbors, MN and 9/6 in the Bayfield/Washburn area of WI. Know any small kiddos (toddler size 7, 8 & 9 and kids 12, 13 & 1) who might like to join the fun? Shoot me a message with the preferred location, your child's shoe size and a recent photo of them to email@example.com.
Also. I now how an IMMENSE amount of respect for all the backend work that @hikingmyway helped me with the last time I shot for Merrell! She's a badass and I miss her help (and company) this time around!
Very unique van tour with @movinalexa to try and help show what real van life can be sometimes. You get to see her beautiful van but also a quick glimpse into how infectious her personality is.
The vans/tiny homes we live in are extensions of who we are. For the most part they are our designs and layouts. Alexa didn't have power for 8 weeks and has been having van problems since April, but by the end of the video you'll see it all works out. The link to her video is in my bio and it's a must watch!

A yearly trip to little river— who am I kidding we come way more than that. Oddly enough I never spent time amongst the trees growing up but outdoors is now where I feel most myself. We’ve been waterfall hopping all day, throughout Mentone. If you haven’t been to Mentone— go!!
Back on the road! I spent the last three weeks with the family in Colorado, welcoming baby Rylen into the family. Now that I’ve been reunited with the van, it’s full-swing right back into it.
Colorado changed the direction of my compass. I didn’t realize how much I missed the west coast. I’ve decided to head west first, looping back around to the east coast. I’ve spent the majority of my life on the east, so this direction excites me more right now. Heading north at the tail end of summer probably isn’t the best idea anyway.
I’m spending the weekend at Chatuge Lake, right at the border between Georgia and North Carolina. I’ll be spending the weekend here, and heading to Chattanooga, Tennessee right after. I’m excited to get this thing moving. No plans, no direction, no idea what I’m getting myself into.
One of my goals for this trip is to finally take this guitar seriously. It’s been staring at me, collecting dust for the last seven years. Hoping to make something out of it!

Everyone always asks where our favourite destination has been on our trip and we always say Tofino. Even though it was at the beginning of our trip we really got to experience it in many different ways between surfing, hiking, and doing some amazing excursions with our friends. As the summer is winding down for us, we’ve been reliving some of these moments together through some of the old footage we haven’t had the chance to see yet. We are so grateful for everything we’ve been able to do.
Even though we had some unfortunate events getting to the waterfall today(Mossy Cave Trail). We Made It!!!
We also got to see the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon. Beautiful stop!
Lesson #(I've lost count) we need to update our first aid kit.
P.S. Alaina is ok 👍
