About Us

As empty-nesters who have left the working world, we have vowed never to check baggage again when traveling. Our motto: Take Less and See More. Our neon-orange 21-inch carryons served us well in the fall of 2012 when our first retirement trip took us to Italy for three weeks.

Since then we have further honed our packing skills, trekking with backpacks along the Camino de Santiago in Spain and the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way in Scotland.  Most recently, we completed the Tour Du Mont Blanc, a 110 mile trek around Europe’s highest mountain.

Where will our next adventure take us?  We’re not yet sure, but we hope you’ll join us as we continue to experience the simplicity of traveling light!

    Reg and Sue, I LOVE that you discovered a covered bridge! Covered Bridges are very special to my family. When my grandmother (on my father’s side) was growing up in Ohio, her family lived near a covered bridge. When company came to visit, as they were leaving to go home, instead of saying, “drive safely”” my Great-grandmother would say, “Watch out for the covered bridge!” My Dad carried on that tradition, as all my siblings do now! When we visit each other, as we leave to go back home, we say, “Watch out for the covered bridge!”
