Likely, you have found this blog because you are our friends and family. This blog is being created for you, as well as for us, so we can share and document our year of “early retirement.” Having spent the majority of our 20’s in school, we are ready for a break!
We have been lucky enough to find each other in Juneau, Alaska, a place where our love for the mountains and adventuring has been continually nurtured. Now that I have finished up a Master’s degree in Fisheries, and Gabe has not only completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics but mastered the role of desk monkey for 3 years, we are ready to break away and adventure our way around Alaska, Canada, and the Western half of the United States. We have loaded up the Prius and invite you to follow our journey as we climb, ski, and adventure across North America!
