    My Mom’s 3,000 Mile Drive: Jackie Hughes

    My Mom’s 3,000 Mile Drive: Jackie Hughes

    This episode honors the mom figures in our lives who inspire or encourage our dreams of road travel by paying tribute to one mom in particular: our host Laura Borichevsky’s mom, Jackie Hughes. Before #vanlife… before Instagram… before she could even drive: Laura’s belief in her ability to do road travel was shaped by her mom’s experience driving across the country when she was in her early twenties, and it stuck with her because Jackie’s journey was full of purpose, bravery, and quite a bit of fun packed into a handful of days and a tiny 1975 Camaro.

    Britany Freeman’s had a problem for a few years. She wanted this one van. And not just one kind of van. But this one van, which she named Alice years before it was even hers. Alice has slipped through Britany’s fingers more than a couple times, and through it all, she could easily have given up. But what makes this story good news is that she didn’t. And what makes it great news is that as of a couple weeks ago, that van is now sitting in her driveway, undergoing a lot of TLC and do-it-yourself renovation projects.

    Pushing Through: Becca Foss

    Pushing Through: Becca Foss

    Becca Foss, long-term road traveler and outdoor guide, knows firsthand through the loss of her husband that sometimes you just have to find ways to push yourself through. It might be climbing a steep hill on a loaded up bike, sending a rock wall, or facing unexpected tragedy and learning how to meet it head on. Being strong doesn’t always look like pushing past your limits. Sometimes it simply looks like showing up regularly and sticking it out. Because when we keep pushing through, even just a little bit at a time-- eventually we do reach the other side.
