Camping in the Caribbean

Since this past Friday was Earth Day, we thought we'd tell you a little about our trip to the Virgin Islands Campground in Jan 2010. The campground is located on Water Island, just off the coast of St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.

You might think that going to a campground in the Caribbean is weird, but it was actually quite wonderful. It's eco-friendly with many of the comforts of a more standard resort.

Plus, sunsets like this can't be beat!

Happy Earth Day 2016

From all of our hiking and time spent outdoors, we hope it's pretty obvious that we love the Earth! We even chose an eco-friendly campground/resort when visiting the USVI back in 2005.

Of course, there is a lot more we can do, but we're always trying to find new ways to live just a little more sustainable. A little more green.

How We Ended Up in Las Vegas

As we mentioned on our Who We Are page, we ended up living in Las Vegas by total accident.

Here's the story.

Back in the Spring of 2012, Clarinda was finishing her Master's of Arts in Teaching, and Jeff was in his final semester of undergrad. It was time to ask the big question of What's Next?

Our answer was to go for a long-ass road trip covering much of the country, circling the Gulf of Mexico, and finally ending up in Belize. We were going to travel through the U.S. & Central America - volunteering on random local projects; working with organic farms; dumpster-diving; and interacting with local communities. We were going to document the whole experience via written journals, photography, and videography.

Here's what the planned route looked like.

Road trip from Minnesota to Belize with stops in the Pacific Northwest; Las Vegas; the Grand Canyon; The Mammoth Cave National Park; Alabama; Weeki Wachee, FL; Teothuacan, Mexico; and Cancun.

6 Ways Runners Can Help Save the Earth

With Earth Day coming up next week, and in our reflection of the Earth's beauty, we thought it would be a great time to take a moment to share some very simple ways that runners can do their small part to help save the Earth.

Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Remember when we got lost in Wyoming by following our GPS? Well, the first stop of the road trip was in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The first stop of our road trip from Minnesota to Washington was in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Clarinda is a sucker for waterfalls, so when planning the big road trip of 2009, we simply had to make a stop at Falls Park in Sioux Falls.
