This is a guest post by Christina Pate, who travels full-time with her husband and dog Ted and documents her RV life lessons learned at TravelsWithTed.com. There is a common misconception that you have to be an entrepreneur in order to travel full time. While being your own boss may make the transition […]
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.

Walking through Venice feels like you’re inside one of those beautiful paintings you often see hanging in Italian restaurants and cafes. It’s picturesque and beautiful, but somehow it doesn’t quite feel real. The pastel colored buildings, flowers in window sills, bridges over the canals, and narrow walkways are breathtaking. It’s all so amazing that it […]
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…
