Well hey there!  Thanks so much for joining us over here in our little corner of the internet.  Here is a little about us: we are a family of four based in the San Francisco Bay Area.  We try to escape from the confines of traffic and concrete as much as possible. While you will mostly hear from me, Yvette (aka “Mom”), the rest of the clan will pop up from time to time on here, our Insta, or our YouTube to share the perspective of a kid, a teen, and a husband who most of his wife’s nutty ideas.  We have an infatuation with all things related to travel, adventuring, and exploring. I also happen to do a extended road trips with the kids while my husband (Todd) stays at home and holds down the fort. These trips have taught me volumes about solo traveling with kids and I am happy to share with other moms how we do this and how they too can hit the open road.  After years friends introducing me as “My friend, Yvette, the one I told you about that stayed in a treehouse/tipi/etc” and receiving questions galore about our travels I decided to create a site where hopefully we will continue to inform and inspire others to travel. We love receiving questions so don’t be shy; send us an email, introduce yourself, and share your questions.  The one promise we make is that we will always be honest and authentic about our experiences.  That means sharing the laughs, the joy, and all those ugly meltdown moments too because no travel experience is all rainbows and unicorn farts.  Please grab a cup of coffee or a cocktail and give us a follow. To quote Jack Kerouac, “Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”
