Hello travelers, we’re Summer (she/her) and Bill (he/him). We love to travel with our kids and dogs, and sometimes write about it here. Most of our travels are spent on the road checking out national parks and avoiding tourist traps. If you are interested in slow travel, outdoor adventures, and eco-friendly living we just might have something for you.

Summer and Bill are amateur outdoor adventure bloggers with a passion for family-focused exploration. Our blog is a celebration of our love for camping, hiking, and travel. We aim to inspire families to discover the great outdoors together the way that we do.

Our journey into blogging started as a simple desire to share our outdoor adventures. We have both been spending time outdoors and traveling most of our lives. It’s something that we have a passion for, something we know, and something we want to share with everyone.

Our small blog is now growing into a resource where readers can find beginner guides on camping and hiking, expert travel hacks, and eco-friendly travel tips. Our content is intended to be accessible and engaging, encouraging families to embrace the beauty of the world around them. We write about a wide range of experiences, from camping under starlit skies to adventurous hikes through lush trails.

We also focus on the importance of sustainable and responsible travel. As lovers of nature, we emphasize the need to preserve the beauty we enjoy for future generations. Our blog features eco-friendly travel tips and guides on how to minimize one’s environmental footprint while exploring the outdoors.

We believe the great outdoors is an incredible classroom, and we aim to be a resource and inspiration for families looking to explore it. Whether you’re planning your first camping trip or seeking new hiking trails, we’re here to guide you.

Join us as we traverse mountains, forests, and beyond, sharing stories, tips, and inspiration. Let’s embark on a journey of discovery and adventure, fostering a love for the outdoors in every family.

About Our Values

We grew up in the Midwest so family, friends, and community are very important to us. So are honesty, integrity, taking care of each other, and protecting the environment. Hopefully, that comes through in our writing. One of the things we are super passionate about is the Leave No Trace Philosophy. If you only read one thing on our blog, read that.
