It's hard to show you the tough moments, the winter nights when it's dark at 4pm and the water bottle's frozen and we're sitting in the bus for hours in our sleeping bags discussing what we'll do next or where we'll go next and we're unsure of what tomorrow will bring. Usually we thrive in the thrilling state uncertainty, but on nights like tonight it's as though we've accumulated too much of it, and this whole state of existence we constructed might shatter soon.
I won't go into it any more than that, because these aren't the moments I like to dwell on. Thoughts are energy. But I did want to stand up here and say no, this isn't perfect. I've learned in these dark moments that you should never hit the road to run from something, because problems are wonderful trackers. They follow you wherever you go. Just like you, they have no reason to stay in one place. Winter can be a dark season, and a very beautiful one. It's like Merle Haggard sings in one of my favorite old country songs. I look over at J.R. and quote it to him "If we make it through December, we'll be fine.”

Free speech involves a speaker and a listener and this communication loop is violated when a third party intentionally blocks this exchange of energy. Censorship and throttling of our ideas, which may come as a result of today’s FCC vote to repeal net neutrality, is a direct assault on our human rights, consciousness and future generations. We stand for net neutrality. We invite you to ask alongside us how we can help, and how we apply censorship within all of our relations including self. When does it cause harm and when does it help? #netneutrality
The closer we get to the east coast the stronger of a pull we feel while leaving the west coast. We both grew up in Maryland and although we love being close to family and friends, something about the west feels like home to us. Not a specific state, not a specific view--Maybe it's all the open space and free public land or solidarity and freedom that sweeps over us. One day we'll be able to put it into words. #slowcarfasthome
Come to Freo they said.... It will be warm... This is the only blue sky's we will be seeing today 😎 looks like it's a Tour De Dog Park kinda day 🐶🐶....

We move into our house sitting place tomorrow, so we will be around Perth for a while, anyone keen for a 🍺 let us know!

Hello there, I'm Maddie and am currently 15 years old. I'm part of #thatnaturefamily . I'm here to give you a teenager's perspective on travel and adventuring throughout my posts. Here's a few random facts about me:
1. I enjoy photography because I can see people's thoughts and actions in a different way when looking through a lens.
2. I am a nature enthusiast. I'm pretty convinced Nature is a part of who I am.
3. Through travel the places I have been to have taught me that every little thing in nature counts. Nothing is too small to have an impact on our environment.
🇵🇹 📍 ÉVORA 〰☞ Lisboa >>> 2018
🇫🇷: Nous rejoignons très bientôt notre famille à Lisbonne, histoire de se poser pour les fêtes de fin d'année. On voulait prendre le temps de vous souhaiter à tous plein de bonheur, des voyages, des sorties en dehors de votre zone de confort, du lent, du beau, du vrai, des sourires, des bonnes discussions qui font du bien, des bons petits plats, de l'amour, de la santé et puis tout ce qui vient avec.
On sera peut-être moins actifs les prochaines semaines, histoire de décrocher et de se revoir en plein forme en 2018. Tu attends quoi de cette nouvelle année, curieux?
🇬🇧: We will soon be joining our family in Lisbon, just to settle down for the end of year festivities. We wanted to take the time to wish you all happiness, trips outside of your comfort zone, slowness, smiles, good meaningful discussions, tasty homemade dishes, love, health and all that comes with it.
We may be less active in the next few weeks, in ordet to settle down and recharge, so we can meet again in good shape in 2018. What are you waiting for this new upcoming year?
This is @gooddogvincent he is the newest member of our band. He is a service dog in training. My wife picked him up on the 14th. If all goes well he will become a Autism Service Dog. #autismawareness#autismservicedog
Did you know, dogs of all shapes and sizes can be a service dog. It just depends on what service is needed. Obviously a tiny dog could not be a mobility dog and help people stand up etc, but tiny dogs make great service dogs for people suffering with P.T.S.D. #learnaboutservicedogs
“ The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change: Yet at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly all right as it is.
Cooking is one of my favourite things to do, and since Michael has enjoyed being the main driver I have happily become head chef!
I must admit before coming out here I was a bit daunted by the lack of space, equipment and not having my mum's amazingly stocked store cupboard! But as the days have gone on I have learned to work with what I have and create some simplified dishes.
Curry is one of my go to favourites, you just need a few spices and some good veg to make a good one!
Expect a few more foodie shots from me 😃

Was good to be back in the old stomping grounds riding with friends!! No day on the bike is dull even when it begins to sleet then downpours rain for the last half because we found a antler and laughed the whole way home. It became soggy and floppy so it won’t come back to Colorado. What was the oddest thing you’ve found on the side of the road?? • I’ve been wrapped in a burrito of blankets, downed two cups of tea and finally feeling my toes but I’d say it was worth all the fun!! @onyxracing • @hyperthreads • @rideshimano • @stansnotubes • @shimanomtb • @osmonutrition • @esigrips • @kendamtb • @swiftwicksocks
