The Road

A week before we left Portland I took two cooking classes (bri took one ) . My lovely dad had given me them as a gift for my birthday. So I learned how to cook some SE Asian food and Seasonal Fall yummies.

This is Josh and Brent, the own Beekman 1802   . We had the pleasure of hearing them speak in Portland at PastaWorks. Bri and I knew them from the Amazing Race ( Loved them! ) What we didn’t know is they have a lifestyle brand that is based around their farm! They are goat farmers! Checkout their website and amazing goodies (blaak cheese will be in the mail to our house ASAP!) Also, they signed my cookbook for me, which since I was only able to bring Four cookbooks! I can’t wait to make some delish meals from the Heirloom book.

Beekman 1802 and the cookbook we bought was the Heirloom Vegetable .

This is our trusted (very trusted with 160,000 miles on it! ) Xterra. We were able to fit six Tough Boxes, one dog and her bed/food, two sets of snowshoes, one tent, two sleeping bags, one foam rollers, one yoga mat, two succulant plants, a case of coconut milk ,one beer growler and two humans! On the roof all of our clothes are vacuumed sealed in Ziplock space saver bags and stuffed in a Thule cargo bag.

When you have those friends that would go to the end of earth for you, you keep them very close. These are our boys (stay tuned for when they come to visit on the road! ) We had breakfast at our favorite spot ( Jam on Hawthorn ) before we hit the road.
