We were rock climbers before we were overlanders. Our passion for exploration stems from our love for climbing. Climbing takes you to the most remote and beautiful places in the world. Now we access those areas overland, taking our home with us.
Kelsey was born in Southern California, but raised in Arizona and found a love for the outdoors and exploring seldom seen places. Tim was raised in California and had a love for the Ocean and deserts that’s only grown over time.
Adventure has always been a great part of my life. As a kid there was lots of off-roading, fishing trips and road trips. When you come from a family of aviators, adventure seekers and explorers, it’s natural to carry on that legacy.
Sandy and I are firefighters. We are therefore fortunate, through that training, to have acquired skills, particularly medical and navigation. Sandy studied aeronautical mechanics and she has car mechanics skills too. But we just start and discover what the 4x4 trip is!
I really can't remember a time I wasn't exploring. My best childhood memories are camping in my grandfather's Westfalia van, sometimes just at local campgrounds, but for a five year old that was an adventure!
When we first met we were backpacking travelers for many years. Since 2006 our Anni was born, we have rented motorhomes and toured Canada and Alaska. This is where the desire for our own vehicle arose, to be able to travel independently. We have had our Unimog since 2017 and are on the road with it in Europe, because Anni still goes to school.
We aim to learn at least the basics of each language for the countries we travel to, we find locals appreciate that you’ve made an effort and it can be hugely beneficial when shopping at local markets. We also have a windows down policy (weather dependent of course) when travelling through most areas who do not see a lot of foreigners.
We have never visited somewhere that sucked. Our suggestion is to go anywhere that is new to you, go with an open mind, and try to meet as many people as possible and do as much as you can while you’re there. Anything that gets you out of your comfort zone will be an amazing and fulfilling experience.
Our first international trip together was to Japan in our early twenties. A friend of ours took a teaching position in Fukui, and we happened to come across a set of cheap plane tickets around the same time. Japan was very different from other places we had travelled to, and really sparked our love for travel. We experienced a world completely different from the one we lived in, and couldn’t get enough.
