Come adventure with us!

We’re Steve and Noelle from Portland, OR, USA. And we’re taking a few years away from full-time work to backpack and travel the globe. No more corporate jobs, no house, no cars…no real income.

So who takes a sabbatical in their 50s?  Well, as it turns out, we do.  Life’s too short, so we live in the moment for as many moments as possible.

At the beginning of our adventure, we chose to thru-hike the 2,653-mile Pacific Crest Trail.  As avid hikers and backpackers, the PCT topped our bucket list for many years.  What a fantastic experience to get out there and backpack!  Our hiking took several twists and turns, but the adventure proved terrific.

Our 2020 adventures changed because of Covid…just like the world’s plans changed. So we returned to the United States from Southeast Asia, where we enjoyed a couple of months in Thailand and Vietnam.

We adapted by buying the perfect quarantine RV! A huge Dodge Ram 3500 dually and an Arctic Fox Truck Camper became home for exploring our country. Since we only get about 10 miles to the gallon of diesel, we make every one of those miles count!

And now that worldwide travel has opened, we returned to SE Asia to finish the year and ring in 2023!
