A high functioning minimalist (whatever that means), I seek to live by the core values of love, contentment, humility, gratitude and generosity. Each month I take to the road to explore the best biking, hiking and camping spots in Central Oregon and beyond.


Armed with a Subaru Outback, one paddle board, two bikes, four solar panels, a rooftop tent, solar shower,  mini-fridge (I think this is what they call gamping?) I explore the realities of living and working off-grid, be it for a few days or a few months.
