I am about to embark on a road trip through New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah with one of my dearest friends, Samantha. Samantha and I have always loved the outdoors and she has motivated me in too many ways to count. She is a Montessori school teacher with a passion for children and the outdoors. She is a master fly fisherwoman and a great rafter and kayaker. Pretty much one of the most amazing women I know. I called her up because I am working on a new series, Woman, which started while I was on a solo cross-country road trip.
