Do you like to be barefoot?


Our minimalist sandals are all handmade and fully customizable. We don’t even do sizes but instead, start with a foot tracing to ensure your feet fit perfectly on the footbeds. We use repurposed climbing webbing for each pair of sandals. Design yours here.

If you have some climbing slings that you should probably retire, we are always taking donations and can hook you up with a discount on sandals to thank you.

Nomadic Family


This bus is our family home.

We spent 3 years and $27,000 converting our 1994 school bus to a family home and we didn’t leave anything out. We were thrifty in many areas, and splurged on the things that are important to us like a full kitchen, tiny wood stove, composting toilet, and 1500 watts of solar to power our off-grid home on wheels. Learn more in our What We Spent blog posts and Our Bus blog posts.

Go adventure together!

Since 2018 our family of 4 has been living and travelling full-time in a self-converted school bus. We are seeking, adventure, connection, and education for us and our 6 and 8 year old girls.

Our travelling focus is climbing and backpacking, always looking for the next adventure to challenge us and our kids. We want to inspire others to give their kids opportunities to get outside their comfort zones and develop confidence and tolerance for adversity.
