Welcome to the adventure blog of Jon and Rachel Lanman. We are adventurers, lovers of nature, exercise enthusiasts, and the proud owners of 2 Chiweenies. What’s a Chiweenie, you ask? Just the apex of the canine form.
Meet Toby & Frieda
Lover of adventure. Coder extraordinaire. Hero to Chiweenies and her husband, alike.
Rachel lives her life in constant pursuit of adventure, and awe. She’s sweet, kind, and is tough as hell.
Rachel is often accompanied by two chiweenies, who love to chase her around the house.
When she’s not outdoors, Rachel’s reading about the outdoors, and planning the next adventure… a hike, a climb, a ski… whatever the season can provide.
She’s a master of the backcountry. And, a lover of maps. She also recently took up knitting.
Spirit Animal: The Wolf
Goof ball. Chiweenie fanatic. Lover of movement, nature and sound.
Jon prefers not to take life too seriously. Yet he’s often overwhelmed by the seriousness of life. At which point he must disappear into the wild with his favorite adventure partner, Rachel.
He may not be the expert planner that Rachel is, but Jon’s always ready for adventure. Just point him in a direction. He prides himself in making an excellent backcountry burrito, and often travels with a margarita shaker (weight permitting of course).
When he’s not hiking, skiing, or climbing he can be found at home doing pull-ups or playing guitar. He’s also an Exercise Physiologist, and Registered Dietitian, and has a health blog here.
