Hiking Angels Landing in Zion National Park

In today’s video, we hike the iconic Angels Landing Hike in Zion National Park and we take you with us. This hike is rated strenuous and involves using chains to get to the top. We would say it was actually less strenuous then the Picacho Peak Hike we did a couple of weeks ago, mostly because up until the chains the entire path is paved. Once you get to the chains this hike is SCARY! Or at least it is for those of us with any fear of hikes. However, the payoff is unbelievable. One bucket list hike checked off!

Boondocking in St. George, Utah

In today’s video, we chat about the crazy few days we’ve had. We moved 3 times in 4 days but we’ve learned a lot in the process! We share our experiences plus a small look at our new spot (which we hope to be in for a while). Now that we’re settled into St George, expect some adventure videos to come.

Stay tuned for Thursday’s video for when we hike Angels Landing in Zion National Park!

Valley of Fire State Park – So Gorgeous!

In today’s video, we’ll show you are boondocking spot on Sand Mine Rd right outside Valley of Fire State Park. We loved this spot…except for the crazy wind, we had for a couple of days. Being on a bluff makes for exceptionally windy nights. We also take you along on a number of hikes in the gorgeous Valley of Fire State Park. We highly highly recommend this park to anyone coming into the area. It’s not far from Vegas and exceptionally beautiful.

Stay tuned for Monday’s video for more about the wind and our departure for St George Utah a couple of days earlier than planned.

First Night Boondocking & Heading to Valley of Fire

After a few nights parked outside Courtney’s parent’s house in the Phoenix area, we embark! We’re heading to Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada but decided to split up the 6-hour drive into 2 days. We spent the night at a boondocking spot on BLM land on Signal Rd off of Rte 93. It was a quiet uneventful night before we hit the road again and made it to another boondocking site outside of Valley of Fire State Park. Boondocking (for those who don’t know) is camping without any hookups (electric, sewer, or water) often in a remote location and often for free!

Stay tuned for Thursday’s video where we hike all over Valley of Fire State Park. It’s gorgeous!

Hiking Picacho Peak

We’ve passed Picacho Peak close to a hundred times in our time living in Tucson. We had heard great things about the hike and so we knew that should be our first hike of our full-time Airstream travels. We had no idea what we were getting into! We made it but that hike kicked our butts. We made it all the way to the top of the tallest peak! Pretty awesome hike but when they say difficult they mean it. Hope you enjoy!

Leaving Tucson (Finally!) & Heading to Picacho Peak State Park

For any of you who didn’t make it through our last video, don’t worry! We’re still in the Airstream and we’ve hit the road! We hitched up the Airstream and got going the whole hour to Picacho Peak State Park. Thought we’d take it slow and we’ve always wanted to camp there! I think our first spot on the road is pretty nice 🙂 Checkout our next video for the hike to the top of the peak!

vLog Day – vLog #41 – Girls’ Day at the Phoenix Flea

We’re going to try and give you a sneak peak into our lives through our vLog series. Expect these to be full of out-takes and the random going-ons of our Airstream life. Eventually, when we start traveling you’ll get glimpses of our campsites, and the gorgeous places we’ll be exploring. For now, it’s life in Tucson as we get ready to hit the road.

In this week’s episode, Courtney has a girls” day with her mom and brother’s girlfriend at The Phoenix Flea. Courtney described the event as Pinterest + Instagram threw up, Steve described it as dangerous to the wallet! It is an AZ focused flea market with mostly local artisans selling their wares and it happens 2x a year. We highly recommend it to anyone in the area in October or March!
