The Dusty Vagabond

Blog profile

Thom lives by one very simple motto: “Go Play Outside!” and this he does for most of each year. You’ll find him driving the back roads to destinations unknown in search of adventure and inspiration. He continues to find both as he heads down the blacktop to somewhere new. Come along for a ride – the scenery is awesome.

    Thom – came across your blog here and enjoyed reading your latest adventures driving I-90 across the northern U.S. I’ve made that drive several times from Seattle to Chicago but never in winter. Nice pics in the sub-freezing temps, I like the frosty shots a lot. You’ve chosen an interesting path, a different kind of travel than I do, but variety is what makes life worth living. My site is, like yours, a synthesis of stories and photos of the places I’ve been. Don’t know which I enjoy more, the writing or the photography. The good thing is being able to do both. Happy trails!

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
