RA Natural Way

Let the Road Trip Begin!

Finally!! After 6 months of planning, we are On The Road!

The car is packed, the bikes are hitched on the back, and the new roof bag is loaded up!  We are more than ready to begin our summer adventure out west! We even spent the night in the back yard to test out our new camping supplies.


Testing out our new GoPro at the beach!

This map shows the first half of our trip. From June 12th till July 2nd. This part is thoroughly planned out. The rest of July is still up in the air… We will be doing more research because there are so many great places in California to visit! But for now, we are going to try and enjoy one day at a time!

1st Stop: Pensacola, FL!




Grand Canyon training phase 1!

I’ve been kicking this lighthouse’s rear end!ImageI went up and down 5 times and I plan on doing a whole lot more of this on a weekly basis! I have a lot of work to do if I am going to hike the Grand Canyon this summer! We plan on hiking to the bottom and camping. Therefore we will have packs on our backs! Phase 1 is only the beginning of my training, getting strong enough to carry a pack! Eventually I will load a little weight at a time into the pack and begin hiking with it. Since I live in Florida, it isn’t like there are mountains to climb… we must get creative!Image

The view from the top makes it well worth the trip! Even after the fifth time! I stopped to take in the view, walk around and take a few pictures.


 Not too shabby… I look forward to coming back and picking up the pace!
