Live Lightly Tour Featured in New York Times

We are featured today in the New York Times…check it out here! It’s a great article that covers several “green RV’s”, including Ty Adams and his bioTrekker Tour. We had the chance to spend a day with Ty when we were in Portland (watch the blog for photos and journals from our West Coast journey soon). He’s a great guy and he definitely knows his stuff.

Have a great day!

Live Lightly Tour Featured on RVTV

This spring when we were in Tybee Island, Georgia, we met up with RVTV. Here is the segment that aired on the Outdoor Channel this summer. Sorry about the delay…it took awhile to get the DVD and upload it. This is probably the most thorough coverage of the tour so far…they did a great job!

New York Times

We were mentioned very briefly in the New York Times over the weekend…you can read the entire article, “Chasing Utopia, Family Imagines No Possessions” here. You may have to register for free account with their site to read it. The article features several families who are headed down the same path of living lightly…including our boat-dwelling friends in Annapolis, Cindy and Doug. Be sure to check out the featured family in the article, Cage Free Family, the choices they are making will inspire you!

Apartment Therapy Tour and More!

Greetings from sunny Arizona! Yesterday, we were featured on Apartment Therapy as one of their house tours for 2008. Be sure to check out their fun “Small Cool 2008” contest as well…there are so many amazing entries this year! I’ve also added a few more TV spots on our press page from recent stops.

We are headed to California tomorrow…and I will be slowly working on getting more photos and blogs up from the last 6 weeks. It has truly been a whirlwind, and when I do have a spare moment to breathe, I have chosen family/friend time over blogging time :) So, thanks for your patience! We have lots of amazing adventures to tell you about!

Savannah, GA: RVTV

RVTV contacted us several months ago about doing an interview/filming while we were on the road for their upcoming eco-travel segment. Of course, we were thrilled to be able to spread the love and branch out to a wider audience! Our schedules just happened to align perfectly to meet up near Savannah, GA. We did the interviews over 2 days and we had a blast getting to know Rob (the host) and Paul (the cameraman extraordinaire), and can’t wait to see the show, which will air sometime this summer (stay tuned for details!). During the shoot, I made some green smoothies and raw chocolate brownies for them…I think they were surprised and delighted that they tasted really good! :)

We spent 3 days on Tybee Island…enjoying the beach (which was just 3 blocks from the campground). It was a very relaxing stop…time to catch up on some family time (of just the three of us!) and to enjoy Savannah. We didn’t spend too much time in town, however, because it was also St. Patrick’s Day, and Savannah has the 2nd largest celebration in the U.S. after Boston. It was a little busy out there! We were able to check out the Brighter Day Foods (tiny, but fabulous!) and Kao Thai Cuisine. Be sure to check out both on your next trip to Savannah!

Live Lightly in the News

We in currently in Virginia…enjoying more beautiful fall colors and great hospitality! We made a stop yesterday at Lynchburg College and had several news outlets come to chat with us. One in particular, WDBJ7 in Roanoke did a great job…and we wanted to share it with you. Click here to go to the main page, and then click on the individual videos along the left side.

More photos and entries coming soon…Philly, DC, Annapolis, Richmond, Lynchburg, Roanoke. Phew! I better get busy :) Thanks for your patience!
