WHO ARE WE?

We are travelers and adventurers – in our 1988 Ford E-250 Cobra Conversion we travel the USA in search of beautiful sights, immersive culture, research contracts, and anywhere good food can be found.

Calleigh

Eccentric by most definitions of the word and a full-time narcissist, Calleigh spends her days designing websites and developing web solutions for major nightclubs and Michelin-star restaurants across the road. Outside her main job, she is the director of web and communications for a long distance skateboarding non-profit, SkateIDSA. On the side, Calleigh works to build passive income through both dropshipping and web-based classified listing business ideas.

Calleigh was the first woman to attempt to skateboard across the United States solo, and became a self-published author in September 2018 with “Carrion, Carried On.” She stands in the worldwide rankings for women globally in distance skateboarding, and breaks barriers by pioneering and advocating for transgender women in endurance sports.

Caroline

Caroline is a comedian at heart with a passion for nature and wildlife. She leads the charge in the van by dictating where we lay our temporary roots to make way for her next contract job in the field of wildlife research. Her continued drive to work collecting hands on data for major conservation and wildlife research sends her around the world and to increasingly remote parts of the country. With a wide background in ecology ranging from outreach programs with state and national parks to collecting data for population and diversity of wildlife for climate change studies, Caroline is well equipped to take on any job the van can drive to.

Outside of her amazing work, Caroline humbly works with linoleum blocks to create beautiful inked projects from holiday post cards to tote bags sporting her art. With her style of thick outlines and use of white-space, she only continues to grow as an artist by working in other mediums, from anything between drawing and redesigning the interior of the van. Her drive to explore the world through her work in the wild has given way to an untapped knack for taking photos of the beautiful places it has to offer.
