About Us

Pippi & Oscar


Pippi & OscarPippi and Oscar are our unconventional, non-staid, grandparent names! One of our life goals has been to travel, particularly seeing all that North America has to offer. Through the years, we, along with our three children, have crisscrossed this continent exploring and having adventures along the way. We have preferred the less-traveled routes and have usually focused our treks toward national parks or wilderness areas.

Our three children are now grown and married and we have one very sweet grandson! We are retired educators–Steve (Oscar), a former teacher/high school principal and Marie (Pippi), a former teacher/school psychologist. We enjoy bicycling, farming, reading, and lots of projects.

People constantly ask us what we are doing to fill our time since retirement. We hope that by creating this blog, people can share our experiences through our descriptions and pictures. Our goal is to keep the blog simple and to update it during or after adventures and projects.
