Hello, We Are Colin & Kayla!
We are just a couple of kids from a small town in Michigan and are trying to see the world! As a kid, Kayla spent some time in Minnesota, but eventually moved back to Michigan, in 1st grade, and has been here ever since. Colin was born and raised in Michigan, before spending 8 months in Arizona in 2018 (where he cheated and visited a couple parks on his own).
We both graduated from Central Michigan University and love to show our pride everywhere we go! Fire Up Chips! Our 2019 New Years Resolution was to visit somewhere new each month. Whether a day trip to a small town in Michigan we have never been to, or a week-long National Park adventure, we are pushing to get out and see somewhere we have never seen before.
Box Office / Event Ticketing
I graduated from CMU with a Sport Management degree and began working with an NBA box office. When the season ended and I started working more concerts, I began to fall in love with the event side of things. I ended up moving across the country and spent some time working with Live Nation. After moving across the country and back, I returned to my original team. After a couple cross-country treks, I now have an even bigger urge to travel. Thankfully, I have Kayla by my side who is just as eager to see new places and try new things!
Dare To Everywhere
National Park Geeks
We have a goal to visit all 62 US National Parks and the 419 NPS Sites. We want to see all of America and as much as the world as we can! We hope you enjoy following along with us, as we #DareToEverywhere
I graduated from CMU with a Biology of Natural Resources degree. I am a project manager in IT (clearly putting my degree to good use LOL). My role keeps me really busy, both with physical time and mental energy. Traveling to new places, exploring areas I have never been and experiencing adventure is my happy place. I love being outdoors, hiking, swimming, and seeing any and all animals. I am so blessed to have Colin, who plans the majority of our adventures and keeps us on schedule. Together we get to enjoy so many new places and try new things...it’s our favorite hobby together.
