Welcome & Thanks for Stopping By!

We're happy to have you! We are Chip, Lindsay, Reid, & Bennett and in 2017-2018 we set off to discover new places, meet and re-connect with people, and help spread kindness while enjoying a family gap year together. Since then we have embarked on another journey - 10 weeks this time - for more time together. We are sharing our experiences, memories, photos, and tips on our website. We hope you enjoy! And please, we LOVE hearing from you so don't hesitate to drop us a line or comment should you feel up to it! Start at the beginning of our journey: HERE!!

Meet Our Family:


We are Chip, Lindsay, Reid, and Bennett. A Family of four who recently hit pause on our life in Durango, Colorado by jumping in Spud, our '86 Westfalia van to explore North America. We are back home after an amazing family gap year on the road visiting family & friends, soaking in the beautiful places, and spreading positive vibes through random acts of kindness. Read all about it on the blog!
