59 before 18 – The Book

After many years our American Family National Park Adventure book is finally finished and available for purchase just in time for the holidays. What a gift to give to inspire another family to spend quality time together as they explore our amazing country.

59 before 18 is a true story about our adventurous family that set out on a quest to explore all 59 American National Parks before our kids turned 18-years-old. Bears, bison, snakes and more were seen as we hiked deep into the wilderness. The wildlife and journey all over America created a family bond that grew stronger as each national park was visited.
