Dan and Kate met while working at the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries.  Our love of the outdoors and interests in hiking, mushroom hunting, rock hounding, and exploring new places brought us together….oh yeah, and let’s not forget hoppy beer 🙂   We planned this trip for over a year and saved every penny possible.   We left our jobs, sold most of our belongings, and stored the rest at our awesome friends and families houses. One of the hardest things to part with was our dog, Cooper. We are very fortunate to have family in Wyoming to love and care for him while we are gone. We leave February, 2015 for an incredible year-long adventure abroad. Thank you to all our friends and family for your love and support and come visit us along the way!

  1. Tilly! That’s really exciting – we are really looking forward to meeting you and Tammy in San Sebastian. We just fund a few colorful chunks of New Zealand jasper down here….too bad we can’t take too much of it in our luggage. 🙂


  2. Do you still have my address in your phone, or elsewhere? If so, you are welcome to ship stuff back, like the NZ jasper, excess cloths, kick-knacks, etc., etc., to my place in the USA and it will all be waiting for you when you finally arrive back home. If you don’t have my address, let me know and I’ll send it via a text message or email to your phone. The costs and how to ship from over there I’ll to you two.

    Any pictures of the New Zealand jasper posted yet? I’ll poke around and see what I can find.

    Cheers, and Have Fun!
