Highway to Hoeftland
Highway to Hoeftland is about Kristin and Mike’s experiences and opinions while exploring in the American West and beyond. Essentially, this site is a personal adventure blog.
In October, 2014, the couple purchased a 17 ft Casita travel trailer; Kristin wrote regularly about the experience of buying and traveling in the Casita until they sold the trailer in late 2015, after moving to Oregon.
Kristin shares stories, tips, discoveries, personal happenings, a lot of new adventures, joys, and sometimes trails and tribulations on this blog. Highway to Hoeftland is about life, travel, food, and fun.
Everyone is encouraged to subscribe, take part, comment, and add advice on this site.
Kristin and Mike are friendly and polite and will try to respond kindly to all questions and feedback.
“A dominant impulse on encountering beauty is to wish to hold on to it, to possess it and give it weight in one’s life. There is an urge to say, ‘I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me.”
— Alain de Botton
I am currently based out of Central Oregon. In the past, I’ve also lived in Southern Nevada, the Pacific Northwest and the South. I am married to my best friend, Mike, and we have one dog and two cats.
I’ve created this blog to share our travel experiences, feature writing pieces, to practice writing, to network with other creative types, and to meet new people who have similar hobbies (travel, exploring, RVing, writing, reading, blogging, food & entertainment).
Essentially, I enjoy sharing what I find beautiful and meaningful, through my travels and personal journeys, by way of photography and writing.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies.
Aside from obtaining a plethora of formal education in Liberal Arts, I believe my personality type, an INFP, makes writing a worthy endeavor, both personally and professionally.
