But why tho...?

I'm a hopeless wanderer obsessed with planet earth and all of her wonders, and I'm here to share them with you.


Born and raised off the beaten path in Alaska (a big portion of my childhood was also spent living and travelling Canada and the continental USA in a van); through a series of serendipitous events I now find myself living a very good life in the Scottish Highlands ..again, in a van. 

I am incredibly passionate about the great outdoors and am keen to share everything that a life of travel and adventure has taught me with others, either so they can live serendipitously or get some inspiration for their own adventures. 


Hiking and trekking for as long as I can remember, I have traversed mountains not just in the UK, but across the globe as well. I'll be using this platform to share all the skills and experience acquired from a lifetime of adventuring.

As a side project, my wolfdog Chinook and I are on a mission to bag the 282 Munros (highest peaks) of Scotland ...we're about 40% complete presently.

When I am not in the great outdoors, I can probably be found either travelling, painting or singing off key to my piano/guitar.

Here's us...
