About Us

Welcome to CrossCountryCoyles.com, where our passion for exploration, storytelling, and the great outdoors converges into one grand adventure! We’re the Coyles – a family that decided to swap the conventional life for one on the road, traversing the vast landscapes of our beautiful planet. Our journey is not just about seeing new places; it’s about experiencing life through different cultures, cuisines, and communities, sharing those stories with you, and hopefully inspiring you to embark on your own adventures.

Our Story

Our journey began in a small, cozy home filled with maps, globes, and travel books that whispered tales of far-off lands waiting to be explored. We, Mike and Sarah, along with our three kids, Emma, Luke, and Zoe, and our loyal golden retriever, Buddy, made the decision to take the road less traveled – quite literally. We sold our house, pared down our belongings to the essentials, and set off in our trusty RV, affectionately named “The Wanderer.” CrossCountryCoyles.com is our digital canvas, a place where we document our travels, the lessons we learn, the people we meet, and everything in between.

Our Mission

Our mission is twofold. Firstly, we aim to share our journey in a way that brings the world closer to you. Through our stories, photos, and videos, we hope to offer a window into the diverse beauty of the landscapes we traverse and the wonderful mosaic of cultures we encounter. Secondly, we aspire to inspire. Whether it’s a weekend getaway to a neighboring town or a journey across continents, we believe in the transformative power of travel and adventure. We want to encourage families, individuals, and anyone with a hint of wanderlust to explore, to step outside their comfort zones, and to discover the magic of our world.

What We Do

  • Travel Journals: Dive into our detailed travel journals, where we share the highs, the lows, and the unexpected twists of our adventures. From breathtaking national parks to bustling city streets, our journals are a mix of personal reflections, practical tips, and vibrant photography.
  • Gear and Guides: Over the years, we’ve learned a thing or two about what makes travel easier, more comfortable, and more enjoyable. We share honest reviews of the gear we use, along with comprehensive guides on everything from packing lists to navigating different terrains.
  • Workshops and Speaking: We love connecting with our community! Join us for online workshops and speaking engagements where we dive deeper into the art of travel, storytelling, and living a life filled with adventure.
  • Community Engagement: Our journey is not just about us. It’s about the community we build along the way. We feature guest posts from fellow travelers, host Q&A sessions, and actively engage with our readers through comments and social media.
