This time of year, everyone’s sharing their favorite gift ideas for RVers. We’ve done it, too. If you’re interested, you can read our post, 10 Holiday Gift Ideas for the Traveler (or RVer) in Your Life. We understand how difficult it is to get a gift for a traveler who collects experiences other things. But […]
Hey there! We’re Dan and Lindsay McKenzie.
We’re just an ordinary couple living an extraordinary life…
We’re full-time adventurers, who are crazy about life and each other. Our goal is to share tips and resources that have helped us follow our detour in hopes that they help you follow yours!
Follow Your Detour is about creating your own path in life.
It’s about embracing change and taking risks in pursuit of a life you love.
Whether you’ve come to a dead end or are seeking an alternate route, following a detour is about the journey of self-discovery and growth … not the destination.
If where you’re at isn’t where you want to be then it’s time to follow your detour…
Enjoying the Sunny Shores of San Diego When you think of San Diego, you may not immediately think of RVing. But, with nearly perfect weather all year round, beautiful beaches and plenty of family-friendly activities, San Diego is a great destination for an RV vacation. What to Do in San Diego Visit Balboa Park and […]
To be honest, we never thought we’d be here. We never imaged adoption as the way we’d grow our family. In fact, we find ourselves envying the couples who say they’ve always dreamt of adopting and knew in their hearts that it was their calling.
That’s not us.
We feel compelled to begin sharing our story with full transparency because it really helps in telling the incredible journey we’ve been on that has led us here today. And we’re really proud of where are.
We’ve found confidence in our story and don’t want to pretend to be anything we’re not or feel or write/say anything just because we think we “should”. We (okay, Lindsay still struggles) are becoming more comfortable with imperfection. Life is messy. Nothing is perfect.
More than anything, we have a deeper faith than ever and fully believe that everything works out just the way it’s supposed to in God’s perfect timing and according to His perfect pan. We love opportunities in life that push us out of our comfort zone because they typically lead to the most beautiful rewards and incredible growth either way.
So being here today…ready and eager to accept a child into our life in a way that we’d never imagined feels so, so right.
But again, it hasn’t always been that way…
Badlands National Park in South Dakota is known for it’s dramatic landscape, steep canyons, and unique rock formations. Parts of the park can feels a bit bizarre, like you’re on a different planet. It is desolation at its finest, and there are areas where you can’t see any signs of civilization for miles. This is […]
The Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and one of the most-visited monuments in the world. Although the iconic landmark is beautiful from afar as part of the Paris skyline (especially at night when it shimmers and sparkles with over 1,000 bulbs), no trip to Paris would be complete without experiencing the breathtaking views […]

*Disclosure: Thank you to River Run RV Resort for hosting us during our stay in Granby, Colroado. While we received complimentary services, all opinions in this post are our own. There are so many different styles of camping. Sometimes we prefer to take our RV off grid, where no one else is around and boondock. […]
There were many destinations on our bucket list when we moved into an RV and started traveling full time. Excitement filled our hearts as we dreamed of sunsets in the Florida Keys or seeing the alpine lakes of Glacier National Park. The thoughts of sipping chardonnay in California wine country or eating fresh lobster in […]
We have to start with a moment of honesty here. Iowa was our 36th state to visit and like most people, we considered it a “drive through” state. It was completely off our radar as an actual travel destination. With that being said… Iowa was truly a pleasant surprise… We initially made plans to visit […]
