At the beginning of March, we left Joshua Tree to head to Los Angeles. There we caught up with our dear friends Mel and Zenobia. We managed to find a fun hike that took us up to the “Wisdom Tree” and the Hollywood sign!
We hope that you all had a great weekend! About a month ago, we were camped out in Lone Pine, California when a good looking Adventure Wagon Vanagon pulled into the spot next to us. Naturally, we needed to go over and say hi! The owner of the van, named Desert Rose, is Barry Vogel. He’s a civil rights lawyer with a long time "radio habit".
The new year found us in south Florida. The holidays as a whole were great, because we finally had time to see and catch up with our families. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we stuck around all the way until the middle of the month. Taking advantage of our time off from the road, we tackled some nagging van projects.
This year has been a total whirlwind for us, thinking back to where we were at the beginning of 2016. Though this has not been the most amazing year on record for the world, for us we can honestly say this year has been increadible. We have experienced, grown, and learned so much. To reflect on our year and the first 8 months on the road we each picked out each of our top 5 favorite photos of the year and some details about how they came about.
The theme of November was friends. We spent most of the month with people and a lot of them we haven’t seen since we moved into the van in April. We started the month around Salt Lake City but quickly moved south to a bouldering area called Joe’s Valley. There we met our friend Thomas who was on his own road trip.
