59 Parks in 52 Weeks

Last spring, we shared a blog about National Geographic photographer Jonathan Irish’s epic road trip to visit all 59 U.S. National Parks in one year. Jonathan and his travel partner Stefanie undertook this journey in honor of the National Park Service’s centennial. And they did it all with an Airstream travel trailer named Wally in tow. At every stop on their route, Jonathan and Stefanie set out to discover the best of what each park has to offer. Hitting all 59 parks in 52 weeks was a challenge, but the duo pulled it off. And it’s all documented on their

Endless Caravan: Making Masterpieces

There, they cohosted a Family Art Workshop with Amber Scardino of Figment Creative Labs.

After Paul completed American Farmer, his publisher asked him what his next project might be. He immediately thought of the centenarians. He wanted to meet more of them, talk with them, and photograph them.

Endless Caravan: Schillers in the Sunshine State

The Schillers’ Endless Caravan is well underway and off to a strong start. The family recently wrapped up a trip around Florida that included a very successful event with a homeschool community in Ft. Lauderdale. Already, the Schillers have made some great memories together. One of their favorite stories from the first leg of their trip started off with a bit of a challenging situation: in Miami, they couldn’t find anywhere to park their Airstream. A random stranger noticed their struggle and kindly offered them his driveway. The Schillers ended up enjoying a cookout with the man’s family, plus a
