Welcome! We’re Brooke & Buddy!

Sharing Extraordinary Outdoor Experiences for Ordinary Adventurers.

In 2017, we quit our office jobs and set off on an often-challenging, always-interesting adventure to find a new life path. After some trial and error (including a year in an RV), we enjoyed international pet sitting for about three years as digital nomads. Now we plan our future travels out of our home base in Hawaii!

We LOVE nature and wildlife, and we are passionate about sharing extraordinary outdoor experiences for ordinary people like us (who won’t be base jumping or hiking across a country in the near future). Come trail away (and likely get lost) with us!
