“Not all those who wander are lost”, by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Our goal is to travel the country, see as much of its wonders and beauty, and share them with you. While much of our travels will involve pavement to get us to our destinations, we  look forward to leaving the blacktop and hitting the back-roads, dirt roads, and trails.

According to Merriam-Webster:


 1  a :  to move about without a fixed course, aim, or goal
     b : to go idly about
2      :  to follow a winding course
3      :  to go astray (as from a course)

We are Scott and Michelle.  We have traveled on and off our entire life and look forward to many more adventures.

I have had a diverse career over my 40+ years. From the distinct honor of serving in the United States Marine Corps, in law enforcement as a Deputy Sheriff, and education as a Executive Director over Technology.

Each one of these careers has been a challenge, and each have built upon the other in experiences, influence, life goals, and how I view the world.

With that, I have been able to travel the world and see some places most would never plan to go to.   Now that we have a means to explore off the beaten path, that’s what this site is all about.

Me and the Jeep


My career has provided me an opportunity to teach a multitude of adult on-line learners in technical education over a period of several decades. I am a life-long learner of technology and enjoy learning how to stay connected and be more efficient in life.

Outside the classroom, I get very excited when I get to experience a new adventure. I enjoy taking pictures and sharing them with my friends and family.

I have been fortunate to travel the country with Scott.  Since we started our travels, I have a new appreciation for National Parks and the beautiful scenery that God has provided for us to enjoy together. I have been amazed where a Jeep has taken us that no other vehicle can.
