Becca & Alex. We work a little, we travel a lot, we spend a little, we love a lot. We are unconventional, tradition blasters who love to roam, wild and free.

Becca – I am a former marketing and advertising professional who used to love wearing suits and heels until my eyes were literally peeled wide open when I saw the vast, Wyoming sky. I dropped out of college the day before I was supposed to start my final semester to embark on an adventure that would change my life with no future plans, only freedom. I took the huge pay cut from the professional world knowing I’d never be happy sitting at a desk to actually live my life! Along the road, I picked up Alex who captivated me with his endless bear phobia banter and constant promise of a fish fry. I fell in love with him when I saw him following his own stars and hopping along cliffs without a care in the world. We’ve been together ever since, laughing our way through each and every day, always looking for cheaper and simpler ways to live. Read our love story here!

Alex – Im just a guy who fell in love with a beautiful women and a wonderful lifestyle. Once I realized that I would never be satisfied living in the concrete jungle  and the 9 to 5 grind there was no turning back. Lucky for me captain, Becca, has been riding the waves of life with me for several years now and we’re loving the trip together! I find that life is much too short, I want to spend my little time here in earth doing what I love with the people I love. The mountains are calling and I must go climb something.

      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!
