Our family of five paused suburban life to travel the country in an RV full-time.

Hello! We are Jess and Josh, a photographer and an epidemiologist from New England.  Lifelong explorers of public land, we took a break from school, sold it all, and hit the road to show our three kids the country.

This space is created for families looking for unique adventure travel that encourages an expanded worldview and builds on traditional schooling.  We do this primarily through the exploration of National Parks, public lands, cities and small towns across the US.
