Since it is my @ashbreden birthday I'm going to rant about the killer early birthday present my parents got me for our trip. Thanks mom & dad!
Let me start out by saying that no one asked me to write this & I'm not getting paid. I am just genuinely happy with these boots.
@cwayneday has had @merrelloutside for years and had been trying to convince me to ditch my running shoes for actual hiking boots. I'm prone to blisters on the back of my heels.
These MOAB's are perfect for my wide feet and all the rain we endured. They were comfortable and cute, extra bonus that they came in my 2 favorite colors grey/blue.
I recommend anyone in the market for new hiking boots to go out and buy these!
Heading North from 'The Dales' on your Queensland Coastal Journey?
When asked by our international and interstate guests which places they should consider including in their itinerary...
..We tell them that they cannot go past the laid back towns of Agnes Water/ 1770 in the #gladstoneregion .
#visitgnes1770 is a must! Rich in breathtaking beauty, outdoor adventure, and historical significance - most notably, Lieutenant James Cook's landing on 24 May 1770.
Pictured in our first post of a series is the beautiful 1770 Headland, leading into Round Hill Creek and Bustard Bay.
Cook wrote in his journal "Upon the shore we saw a species of the bustard, one of which we shot, it was as large as a turkey, and weighed about 17 pounds and a half. We all agreed that this was the best bird we had eaten since we left England; and in honour of it we called this inlet Bustard Bay."
I @ashbreeden can't wait for the next time we go to Idaho. ⛺
Like with much of our trip, @cwayneday & I only had a short amount of time in Sawtooth and so we had to soak up as much as we could as fast as we could.
Even with the cloud cover & rain chasing us the colors around sunset at Alturas Lake were breathtaking.
We camped right on the lake's edge and walked along it at sunset before retiring to our hammock back at camp.

Day 9: Kings Canyon National Park
We have arrived at home back in San Diego. After awaking to rain this morning and packing the van we visited Grant Grove.
Chuck did a Singing in the Rain impersonation for me as we walked among the giants, it was FANTASTIC.
Happy first day of fall!
When picking a wedding venue, think about the ambiance you've always imagined when you think about your wedding day. For Elsie and Dilphe, those daydreams included dancing outdoors with friends and family. Casual and intimate with a whole lotta love. Whatever your wedding daydream is, make it happen!
Day 8: Sequoia National Park
Oops I did it again!
In case you don't know, I have a HORRIBLE fear of heights. I couldn't have done it with the support & encouragement from Chuck.
He was so excited by all of the geological information he learned from the plaques along the way.
What a magnificent view, and a victory for me over my fears!
You can do whatever you put your mind to!

No, - really. Everyone should eat out once in a while. And when we say "out", we mean real out. Not a 'fancy restaurant downtown' out. We also got gluten free, lactose/milk free and vegetarian (and a few vegans) meals. Mild or spicy. Cold or warm. Chunky or smooth. Chances are you'll find something you like.
BTW: If you need help to find a retailer in your country - just ask us.

Day 7: Crater Lake National Park
Visibility was zero this morning along the rim. We had tried to go along the East side when we first arrived last night, but it started to snow and we felt uncomfortable driving in it so late.
Chuck & I had to get on the road before the visitor center opened, so no stamp for our National Park Passports 😕
No matter, we enjoyed the snow and Oregon as a whole. I'm glad to have an excuse to come back.
Happy #TrailTuesday from a lucky day of sunshine on #Flattop mountain! As one of the most popular trails in @chugachstatepark Flattop has many visitors each day. This summer, Alaska RTCA worked with @alaskatrails, @akstateparks, and some incredible volunteers to reroute and create sustainable trails in the area. Head over to @alaskatrails to find out how you can get involved for National #PublicLands Day!
We've designed the best safety light that this world has ever seen, with our first responders' bravery and safety in mind. Check out the #MilwaukeePolice using the #GuardianAngelDevice to keep our streets safe at night.
More from our roving traveler (Campmor retiree) Back Roads Bev. Wild places and open space are a necessity, as John Muir declared 100 years ago. It is very disconcerting that 10 national monuments have just been identified for significant reductions in size and scope. Wild and open space are more critical now than ever. We hope the tradition of conservation and preservation continue amidst significant challenges ahead.
