We both enjoy exploring new places, especially in wild, untrammeled areas.  We also feel the need to occasionally break out of our normal routines.  We find that living for a while on a yet simpler level challenges our ideas of what we really need, and makes us more appreciative of the comforts of the more settled life of home.

At first glance, it may seem out of place on this website, but adventure does involve "living outside the box" and doing so with relatively simple technologies.  Below are links to some of our trip journals and technologies.
