#flightofthesnowbirds – The Map From Canada to Mexico

The plan: leave Canada and head south for the winter.

Here’s our Google map that we’ve been working on. If you’ve been following our journeys you’ll see a difference in this map – we’re differentiating map markers using coloured icons. You’ll see bike markers for mountain biking trail heads; picnic table icons for places we might overnight that are public spaces such as picnic areas or beaches; parking icons for stop overs such as Walmarts and casinos; and other icons such as libraries or wifi spots where we can work. We’ll probably add water and sani-stations as we find them.

Feel free to use this map to plan your route along the west coast to Mexico!

We welcome all suggestions for places to see, places to boondock, free or inexpensive campsites or even parking spots that allow overnight parking! Reach out to us via social media or through our email contact form.

Learning to Mountain Bike in Moab – #Back2Van

In This Video

We checked out the mountain biking in Moab! We rented a dual suspension bike and Gee rode it on the Captain Ahab trail, Cee rode it on a trail in Dead Horse State Park. Cee starts learning to mountain bike in Moab, Utah.

This was a turning point for us. From now on, we’re chasing not only the sunshine, but also the mountain bike trails.

Where We Stayed

Free dry camping at Willow Springs Road BLM near Moab, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park, 38.696832, -109.6981

For details from the entire route and to get GPS coordinates, check out our map.

Greg rides the famous Slick Rock!

Things You Might Like

The helmets we love, for style and safety!

We both have these Bell Super helmets now that we are mountain biking – all. the. time. It’s comfy, looks cool, and the jaw bone is detachable which makes climbing much better.

Things You Might Like

Gee’s grandfather’s Buck Knife used to gently halve peach tartlets and to baton wood. it’s a slimmer, more nimble alternative to the chunkier classic 119.

Whiskey stones which are GREAT in a van when you don’t have an ice cube tray. They also don’t melt into water when the freezer isn’t cold enough!

The fire striker Cee uses to make campfires like the Survivor fan she is.

 Cee’s Nut Case Helmet to look styling on the trails.

Intex Inflatable Kayak K2 – used to kayak around Lone Rock but not seen because we had no GoPro at the time of filming.

Touring Sedona and the Grand Canyon – #Back2Van

In This Video

We headed up through New Mexico to Arizona where we visited Sedona and then toured the Grand Canyon.
While in Sedona, we tried out the biking trails and there was a short bit of single track at the end of the Bell Rock trail that got us excited for Moab.
Sit around the fire with us for a recap of the adventures before this…
There is amazing free camping only 10 mins from the Grand Canyon gates!
Now this is how to live the van life.

Next Up

Cee gets hooked on single track and dual suspension biking at Moab, Utah!

Tales from Texas – #Back2Van

Special Note

Our thoughts are with the folks in the path of Hurricane Harvey. We traveled through Corpus Christi and Padre Island on through Louisiana back in March and these were some of our favourite places to visit.
Visit here for updates on the hurricane’s path: http://google.org/crisismap/2017-harvey.
And it’s always a good idea to donate to the Red Cross to help those in crisis: http://www.redcross.org/.

In This Video

From the shores of Newfoundland, we tell our tales of traveling through Texas. From New Orleans on to Padre Island and then over to Big Bend National Park where we contemplated swimming over to Mexico!

Next Up

Arizona and Cee’s first taste of single track mtb trails!

Return to the Big Easy. Loving the #vanlife. – #Back2Van

We wrap up our Florida trip and head on a fast track back to New Orleans to meet up with great friends from Newfoundland. We shared an Airbnb and ate our way through the Big Easy. The kayak tour was amazing but since we hadn’t replaced our Go-Pro yet, you’ll just have to take our word for it.

Next up – Big Bend & the Rio Grande!

Exploring Vancouver in the Winter. VLOG 18.

Filmed Dec 30, 2016
We are currently hanging out in Vancouver before we hit the road again for a few more months of #vanlife. This is our old stomping grounds so we thought we’d be tourists for the day.
