Karen and Mike Sliwa are two former high school teachers who decided to get off the treadmill of consumption and return to the road of durability. After participating in the education system for a combined two decades these educators felt it was time to become students of life. Since life depends on the natural world Karen and Mike thought it may be a good idea to learn how to live and thrive without such a large carbon footprint.
Our goal is simply to learn the necessary skills in order to consume less and connect more. Connect more with people and the natural world is where we hope this road leads. We will become part of the HelpX and Couchsurfing communities in order to achieve our goal. Eventually we will pare down our belongings to our backpacks.
Buckle up it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
