Becca: I am just an average 20 something woman who fell in love with the outdoors and the freedom it provides. My days are spent rock climbing, laughing hysterically, hiking, splashing around in alpine lakes and reading crime novels as the sun sets. I have a tendency to spill hot beverages, am a downright terrible driver but an excellent navigator, love taking a thousand photos and somehow get stabbed by cacti more than I should. I am an Outdoor Guide at Explorer Chick Adventure Co where I travel to rad locations guiding small groups of women on the adventure of their lifetime and fall on my butt more than one should for being an outdoor guide.

Alex : I like to climb rocks. A lot. I also like to pet hairless dogs. A lot. I’m allergic to furry dogs. A lot.

In all seriousness, I’m just a normal dude pursing what I love with those that I love.

Becca keeps me around because I fix the van when it breaks down. Lucky me!

We live and travel in a 1983 18 ft “shorty” Toyota Sunrader. For the past 4 years, we have lived without a permanent address. Our unnecessary possessions have long since been sold, most everything (except snowboarding gear) fits in this little roaming box. Alex is an exceptional Youtube mechanic and can fix just about anything that goes wrong on our simple little engine!

JACKSON & BANDIT: Our pride and joy, these are two American Hairless Terriers. They are every bit of the family as the humans. These boys can hike 15-20 miles/day, scramble up rocks humans struggle with and are master treat beggars! Being hairless, our boys need sunscreen, puffy jackets and just as much love as a “normal” dog.

We fell in love on a short 3 week roadtrip where we explored Yellowstone and Glacier wondering how we even knew of a life lived without eachother. Ever since, we have been devoted to a life together where we will always be free. Always be loved. Always be content no matter our place in life.

      1. Ohh you’ve caught the wrong sibling here. My brother is a climbing instructor here so he’s always out and about.

        Indoor climbing – we have “Ratho” which is the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena in more official terms, Glasgow Climbing Centre in the Ibrox area of Glasgow, Alien Rock 1 and Alien Rock 2 in Edinburgh for climbing and bouldering respectively and other walls in schools, sports centres etc. The Universities usually have their own clubs too, which seem to focus more on the sport climbing side of things.

        Outdoors, Scotland is mountainous with plenty of crags and climbs that my brother does fairly regularly – he’s out most weekends so there must be enough to keep him busy! and the Highlands around Glen Coe and the beaches, although usually freezing, are worth the roadtrip anyway. If Scottish climbing were to stand out for anything in particular, I think you would come to Scotland particularly for sea cliff climbing. The MCofS site has listings of routes but really, as with anywhere and climbers, you’d be best speaking with climbers (tight knit community) to find out “the good routes”.

        If you have a specific question though, I can put it to my brother and get back to you. Sorry I’m a novice!

  7. Thanks for liking my blog post “We Glorious Bastards.” I enjoyed your Yellowstone post and hope to get out there one day. Would like to do a multi-day winter backpack trip, possibly through Lamar Valley. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks again!

    1. Hey there! I personally haven’t spent a winter in Yellowstone, friends tell me they’re pretty brutal. Considering the snowfall levels, I may recommend renting/packing xc skis or snowshoes. Other than that, I would advise calling a Yellowstone Ranger Station to ask their advice on trail conditions, wildlife, best time to go etc. Good luck!
