Hi there! I’m Marsi: Traveler, Visual merchandiser, Designer & Home Renovator, Vintage dealer, and Amateur film photographer.
After a year of researching and loosely planning an itinerary for an epic western U.S. road trip, my husband Robert and I sold our house in Tennessee and embarked on a grand adventure.
Our 2018 travels included thirteen national parks plus several dozen state parks, national monuments, national forests, national historic areas, BLM sites, big cities, tiny towns, and everything in between. (You can check out our list of parks visited here. ) Instead of a making a set schedule, we had a very long list of destinations in mind, allowing ourselves the freedom to wander rather than be locked into a fixed itinerary. Traveling and living out of our Subaru Outback and our REI Grand Hut tent for months, we adopted a dirtbagger lifestyle that became so engrained in me that it inspired a shift in my career path. Since settling back in one place in 2019, I’ve been working in the Outdoor industry.
I created this blog to chronicle our 2018 western road trip. From time to time we’ll flash back to prior vacay and adventure spots we’ve enjoyed over the years, with some “what we’re doing now” posts thrown in too. We adopted Juniper the Wonderdog (or Wanderdog!) in 2019, and she has since been our almost-constant travel companion.
I also post some of my favorite film photos. If you would like to see more of my film photography, please check out my instagram feed.
My prologue provides a bit more backstory, so that’s a great place to begin.
Thanks for reading!
