For the past few weeks, Tiny Pond as has been gradually getting more and more ice on it. We hadn't yet ventured out for fear that it would not be thick enough yet to hold us, but when we had some ice fisherman show up last week asking to fish on it, we knew it must be safe. So yesterday, after several below zero days and a snow storm, we headed across the lake with our snow shoes. I don't think I've ever walked across a frozen lake, pond or river before and it was very fun (and very cold)!
After one of our earlier snows ... only a little ice around the edges.

How we got here ... with a couple babies!
We first met on July 7, 2006. We'd both quit our jobs and gotten rid of nearly all our possessions. We had joined the Peace Corps and were heading to the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific. We thought we were prepared for whatever lay ahead ... neither of us had a clue.
Just over 10 months after we first met, we were MARRIED! Since then our adventures have included:
- a year in New York City, living in a Harlem brownstone apartment - going off-the-grid & into a tent-cabin on tiny Angaur island in Palau - living with a bunch of teenagers in Shanghai, China while working as dormitory parents
- off-the-grid again & into a barn on 400 forested acres in Vermont
- at the base of volcanos in beautiful Panajachel, Guatemala
And now ... on the hunt for a new career, we find ourselves in IDAHO!
We love to experience this great big world and hope you will join us for the journey!
