raechelannh 58 days ago my friend & I left Montana to set out on a car-camping adventure across the US. 48 days spent on the road, 10 spent flying to different states for the holidays. 10,670 miles, 17 states and surprisingly 0 speeding tickets. Our journey brought countless memories and lessoned learned. I am beyond grateful for this experience but also thankful to return home to the people and state, I love the most. // Until the next adventure-- Home Sweet Home, Missoula MT 19h

raechelannh We arrived well after dark last night in Springdale UT, just outside of Zion NP. In need of a real bed, we decided to cheat on our car-camping and splurge on a cheap motel.

raechelannh We have learned that there is pretty much nothing physically attractive about living out of your car for weeks on end. We have no shame, we left that behind somewhere around mile 873. We wear way too many hats and the same outfits two days in a row // Praying for a shower somewhere in Cali, Day 41. 1w

raechelannh Last night I laid on the beach, closed my eyes, and tried to quite all of the noise within. I tried to be still and just take in all that surrounded me. I am learning. This trip has been quite the journey in more ways than one. “The best thing you could do is master the chaos in you. You are not thrown into the fire, you are the fire.” // Big Sur CA, Day 39 at Sunset. 1w
