About us- Mike, Geneva and the dogs.

Mike and Geneva and Alta

In October 2014, Mike and Geneva Saint-Amour packed up Seri, Zeb and Mango (the dogs) into Alta (the van) — and  departed from Arizona to travel……. indefinitely.

Seri looking

Seri- the wise, old, Catahoula She left us in May ’17 in Hidalgo, MX.  Adios, Seri

Zeb long

Zeb- director of security.  Generally found sleeping on the job.


Mango- Custom chi-weenie car alarm, greeter  and attention seeker.

Alta is the Volkswagen, Vanagon, Westfalia, AdventureWagen, high top, Bostig conversion, tall, VW bus.  She has been through some changes and modifications.  All designed to make her a more reliable home for us for now.

Destinations remain undetermined. Targets include points East, North, and then South…. far South. We will do a loop of the USA with some Canada, too.  Then on to Latin and South America!  After that…….we will see.


UPDATE 2017- Life is full of unexpected changes and we learn to adjust.  We have made a change in our travel rig.  We are now building out a frame/chassis mounted truck camper.  The latest post will chronicle the stages of that custom build, just as we documented the build of the van.  Watch for updates!

  1. Are you ready for your epic road trip yet? Don’t you want to take some students with you? I just picture you flying down the highway tossing all your worldly possessions out the window and laughing hysterically. Good image 🙂
