The Quick Back Story...

Just before beginning our “Vagabloggers” experience of full-time travel a few years ago, we saw a documentary called Blood Into Wine. The documentary chronicles the up-and-coming wine industry in Arizona. More notably, the documentary features the story behind the wines of the ubiquitous musician (and now winemaker) Maynard James Keenan. For those who may be unfamiliar... in short, Maynard in an individual who has had a resounding impact on my life through the music and lyrics of the bands he fronts: Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer. Shortly after seeing said film, we found ourselves inspired to experience this Arizona wine scene and taste the wines for ourselves. So… we planned a road trip to Flagstaff/Cottonwood/Jerome with a couple of friends and off we went. The experience, however, was incredibly short-lived and we, well… made mistakes. Like not even buying or tasting Maynard’s artisan line of wines: Caduceus. If you’re super curious about those mistakes, check out our older Jerome blog post here.

Now, after having lived the nomadic lifestyle for over 3 years, we were presented with the opportunity to meet up with some friends (one of whom joined us on the previous trip) for a redemption visit. This time, we had all the time in the world, a van to stay in, and frankly, better access to the wines.   Read more

Exploring Bryce Canyon National Park

After a winter in Utah, we started the next leg of our never-ending journey by heading south to Bryce Canyon National Park.  After all the years we've lived in Utah, we'd never actually BEEN to Bryce!  Naturally, we made it a mandatory stop on our way out this time.

I could go on and on here describing the magic this place can instill, but words cannot do a place like this justice.  Instead, we'll leave you with a few enticing photos and a video.  Experiencing the rest will be up to you.  Enjoy.   Read more

Reawakening the Inner Nerd at Salt Lake Comic Con Fan X

Interestingly enough, we never fancied ourselves as "comic con goers".  In fact we'd never really taken much interest in any comic con ever.  Which is exactly why we were open to it when a family member suggested that we apply to be on Salt Lake Comic Con's Fan X Media Team.  We're always open to new experiences and given the fact that we travel slowly on a low budget, people watching is certainly one of our fortes.  That being said, Salt Lake Comic Con's Fan X has some of the best people watching on the planet!  Ok... maybe this is a little more down our alley that we knew.   Read more
