About Us

Kayaking in Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park

Welcome, and let us take a minute to introduce ourselves. Jeff is a former travel agent and veteran teacher now working in ed tech. Erin is a professional photographer and experienced school librarian. We live in Portland, Oregon, with our adorable cat, Bonkers, and we’ve spent nearly every summer of the last 30 years traveling. We’ve also squeezed in a lot of travel weeks and weekends in between!

Our top travel goals are to visit every continent and every US national park. So far, we’ve been to five continents (Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America) and 50 of the US’s 62 amazing national parks.

We love to meet new people and explore new places. We believe that traveling makes people better stewards of our planet and better citizens of the world. We also know that traveling can be expensive and that most Americans have limited time for travel. We hope this blog will help you maximize both your time and your money as you travel and explore. We’d love to learn from your experiences as well, so be sure to comment on our posts!

Enjoy your next travel adventure, whether it’s for a week or a weekend!


Bonkers loves to pack, but rarely gets to travel!
