This morning I woke to the beach of Coronado near San Diego. Taking a moment to do my am yoga and mediation, it hit me. Alice and I have been on the road for 5 WEEKS! How far have we traveled? Are we turning into Thelma & Louise?
“The 8-mile, modernly strenuous, trail system offers expansive views of Seminole Canyon and the Rio Grande, which forms the international boundary between the United States and Mexico. Whether riding a mountain bike or hiking, be sure to take a moment and reveal in the world-class scenery.”
The universe has spoken, and when it speaks you can’t help but listen. Longing for something, not really an answer more of a salvation or a type of healing, I piss poorly put out the intention that I needed that something. I needed help, that healing and I needed to get away.
The road has many bumps, twists, and turns. One thing I love (and sometimes dislike) is the unexpectedness of it all. But what we may think is a wrong turn ends up being the path we never thought to take. In todays email, I've included a few of those 'off the beaten path' folks and the love they share with others.
Last year, I had the great honor and privilege of being the first recipient of the Big Agnes Bob Swanson Memorial Grant. This grant is in remembrance of a true person of the outdoors, "The Tent Guy" Bob Swanson.
Thanks to this grant, and all its support, I was able to travel to New Zealand and bike 1900 miles across both islands, solo. Above is the latest episode of Case of the Nomads that documented this epic event! Here is my latest episode of COTN, enjoy!

When I stepped out of the airport, I didn’t see her. We had been texting so I knew she was picking me up. Realizing that her RV was probably too big for the underpass, I went to the outer edge of the pickup area where the hotel shuttles and buses pick up passengers. And there she was! I excitedly waved to get her attention. Rays of desert light flickered off my blue coat warming my flagging arm.
“Welcome to New Mexico”, Alice greeted as I open the RV door, throwing my bag in the back. After hopping in, we were off.
A 1500 foot long coil that was created at the peak of the land art movement in the 70's by the legendary Robert Smithson is probably one of the RADDEST things I've ever seen.
I'm moved. I'm touched. I'm inspired. I'm in love. I'm grateful. I'm in awe. All because of one man’s life work. He heard a message and had to create. He had nothing, yet everything.
