Appetite for Life

Our family set out one year ago to experience America’s wilds, its cities and everything in between. We’ve found ourselves basking in the silent beauty of the Redwoods, sledding the dunes at White Sands and shucking oysters in the Carolinas. Join us in our adventure as we downsize to backpacks and set out to see what the rest of the world has in store for us!
