About Us

Hi! We are Shannon and Ken, a couple of average white collar workers who spent years trying to make the most of our weekends. From our most recent home base in Miami, we visited natural and historic areas in South Florida and around the country as business travel and vacations allowed. We used the blog to document our experiences and motivate us to seek out interesting places and people.

In February 2018, we made adventure the centerpiece of our lives, embarking on an ambitious plan to travel the country for several years in our Airstream travel trailer to visit as many national park units and other points of interest as possible. The tally of experiences keeps growing as we hike, visit botanical gardens, take photos, and figure out what awaits us down the road. Check out our travel maps (links in the header above) to see where we’ve been.

About Shannon

I was previously a lawyer at a large international law firm. I write the blog and take most of the photos. My interests include cooking, history, kitsch, science (especially botany), do-it-yourself projects, and all manner of interesting trivia.

About Ken

Ken was a finance professional who thinks just about anything useful in the world can be accomplished using Excel. Ken is a fan of virtually all sports (sorry, baseball), SQL databases, any place with an ocean view, art, and dogs that follow commands.
