Michelle and her husband are working their way through the national parks with their two children, now ages 15 and 9. They travel in a truck while towing a pop up and spend an average of 70 nights a year camping. Currently they have visited 51/63 national parks, which represents the entire lower 48 US states. Michelle grew up traveling the country in a camper every summer with her parents (both teachers) and three siblings, all of whom still travel and camp. She loves trip planning for her family, both epic cross country adventures and regional weekend excursions, and has a passion for equipping other families to get on the road.
