THE STORY OF SHORE TO MOUNTAIN
Living Life the Way We Want
Long story short, or long, I will tell you a bit about our life and how traveling came to be.
Josh, my partner, and I were living the 9 to 5 life: our kids went to preschool, we both worked, lived in a modest house in Minnesota, went on a couple family vacations, but as most of our friends and family know- that is not like us at all. We never wanted to live the "typical" family way. I also know that life is too short, I lost a brother aged 19 when I was only 16, and my mom who was only 58 years young.
We planned on moving to Texas, but nothing was lining up for us. It was hard for me to find a job there as a Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT). One day while I was at work a coworker mentioned she knows someone who was a traveling MLT and said maybe I should try it out. I did not think Josh was going to go for it, so when he was open to the idea I was shocked. A few short weeks later we moved to Missouri, sold our house, and said good-riddance to a life that wasn't making us happy.
We then moved to Iowa and back to Minnesota to take care of my ailing mom. After she passed we took on an assignment in Wyoming, Washington, and currently in Vermont!
I hope we inspire others to do what they want during their short lives on Earth.
