We have reunited in sunny California! After a week in Lake Tahoe we have traveled back to the Nevada City area for the annual cleanup along the river. We decided that we should camp down by the river since the cleanup was the next morning near the Bridgeport Crossing. We pulled up a steep, dirt […]Read more "International Coastal Cleanup Day"

Before arriving in Hawaii I would have never guessed it to be the wettest place on Earth. Logan telling me so and reading the sign at the lookout was just not enough clarification. Much to my dismay we got caught in daily downpours on what would start as beautiful sunny days on Kauai. The […]Read more "The Wettest Place on Earth"
Day five at the sanctuary and we sadly woke up lacking motivation. We are tired. We are not accustomed to the manual labor and harsh heat. You can imagine how we are lacking some inspiration when our morning routine usually includes shoveling massive amounts of smelly poo . Today’s session was especially festive when I got […]Read more "Spirit of the Elephant"

You […]Read more "Kòp kun mâak (thank you)"
