Best of 2011

One year spent zig-zagging from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean across two continents. Traversing over the varied landscape of Central and South America depending our on appetite: white-sand surf break or a crisp mountain morning? A wild dream turned reality, we still wake up some mornings forgetting our location and laughing with the sunrise at the day’s potential.

Recently we were asked about “the highlights” in an interview. We quickly reeled off the top ten starting with beachside camping in Baja and concluding with off-roading the Bolivian altiplano. Only after a small pause for consideration do we both realize we exchanged vows in Costa Rica back in March. You know you’re having a good year when a beach-side wedding, your beach-side wedding, sometimes slips your mind.

2011 was all about execution and exploration. It’s been a year of highlight after highlight. 2012 will be a change of pace. We sense a year of reconnaissance and foundation pouring. We’re just as excited for this challenge as the day we put the last San Francisco sunset in our rear-view mirror.
