Come adventure with us!

We’re Steve and Noelle from Portland, OR, USA. We’re taking a few years off work to backpack and travel the globe. No jobs, no house, no cars…no income.
Just like it has for everyone, the world-wide Coronavirus pandemic radically altered our 2020 adventure. We scuttled plans and returned to the United States from South East Asia due to the spreading virus.
Now we’re semi-homeless, unemployed and very restless. We’re about to embark on a new adventure, exploring our own country. Whadda say? Ready to hit the open road?

Our first night on the PCT
