So We Went

We are Ash, Margaux, and Mar, a family of three living in San Diego, CA.  We grew up as a couple exploring the outdoors, fishing, backpacking, hiking, camping, and stand-up paddle surfing.  Now as a family of three, adventuring fuels our spirits and immerses our daughter into a lifestyle that we know will enrich her development.  In 2018, we bought our custom campervan, and we affectionately refer to him as “Bruce.”  We love that he has expanded our adventures into #advantures!

If you are like us, you may not always plan ahead and book designated campsites.  Plus campsites can be crowded, noisy, and don’t offer solitude in most cases.  If you aren’t familiar with dispersed camping, it basically means camping outside of a designated campground.  Keep in mind this means no services are available like trash, potable water, bathrooms, and so on.  If that doesn’t scare you away, here are some pointers for finding spots that are peaceful and available, even up to the last minute!
