About this Trek

Welcome to our Pacific Northwest Adventure!

The short version of our story is that, like many people during the pandemic, we got a little stir crazy and bought a camper van.

But there’s more to it, of course.

In the fall of 2020, devastating wildfires crept closer and closer to our house. Thankfully we didn’t have to evacuate, but as we looked at a sampling of our worldly belongings stacked by the door and looked at the space in our little hatchback Subaru, we realized that a camper van might be a practical purchase and not just a fun one.

A Chronicle

After months of research and Craigslist alerts, we bought our little van, and very quickly, I said to Debbie, “I want to buy a journal to capture memories of all of the trips we’re going to take.” When I said that, I was thinking of the little Milepost journal that we bought for our trip on the Alaska Highway. It’s not something that I turn to regularly, but it has been fun to revisit that trip through the pages of the journal. Debbie’s response was this website.
