10/13/22 I had intended to write this post as soon as we finished the record, but I found myself needing a social media, blog, internet, and technology break as soon as the journey was over. We were completely overwhelmed by endless support and encouragement during the entirety of the journey. Words can't express how grateful… Continue reading A Guinness World Record ✅
7/23/2022 As I write this, we are at a campground in Troy, Montana on the Kootenai River. Tomorrow we enter Idaho, and on Monday, Washington- our last state of the journey! Today is Saturday, and one week from today, we will be reaching our "finish line". On Saturday July 30th, we will hit our 7,000… Continue reading A World Record, The Rockies, and Less Than a Week Left!
6/14/2022 Yesterday afternoon we hit 3,500 miles! Which means that for our 7,000 mile goal (in order to beat the world record) we are officially halfway! This was a huge milestone for us, and we are feeling very excited to have reached the second half of our journey. We have given ourselves 90 days to… Continue reading Halfway Day! Yay!
5/27/2022 The days really do blend together. I keep telling myself when we get to camp at night, I am going to spend some time writing. But then we get to camp, log all our details for the record, set up camp, shower, make dinner, relax and enjoy our surroundings, and before I know it,… Continue reading 2,000+ Miles & Now We’re Having Fun!
5/13/2022 As I write this, I am sitting at a table at the Best Western in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. The air conditioner is buzzing and the room feels a bit stuffy- I am drinking cheap red wine out of my camping mug. Our bikes are pushed against the far wall, and Kyle is currently… Continue reading The First 1,000+ Miles
5/6/2022 Well, the time has come for our next expedition! And this time, we headed away from the water, and chose a more land based mode of travel: two electric bicycles. We teamed up with DŌST electric bikes, and on May 1st, we left from Key West, FL in order to attempt to beat the… Continue reading A World Record Attempt
3/24/22 The sailing season is coming to an end for me and Kyle and we are already preparing for our next adventure. The season didn’t end quite as we anticipated, but it was a lovely season, nonetheless. It was actually one of my favorite sailing journeys we have taken. I loved all the countries we… Continue reading An Ending, A Beginning
1/23/2022 When I really think about it, think about what makes up our lives, it seems that it is a series of moments. Moments that add up to minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days, and days to years. Years and years of life, filled with individual moments. Sometimes these moments are amazing, sometimes they… Continue reading A Series of Moments

1/5/2022 We made the decision to leave Cayo Culebra around noon on Thursday December 16th. That way, we would hopefully arrive in Honduras by dinner time on the 19th, three days later. Originally we had planned to go to Roatan, but then we saw a small island about 20 miles West of Roatan called Utila.… Continue reading A Difficult Crossing
