About Us


We love traveling and exploring our fabulous USA! Therefore, we are “Adventure Nuts!” We are a family of 8…Mom, Dad, and 6 crazy kids.  I am Shelli, the mom and ring-leader of the adventures! My husband, George, is our driver and loves exploring as much as I do! I have two children from a previous relationship, and my husband also has two kids from a previous relationship. We also have two little kids together. So, sometimes we have two kids on our adventures, and sometimes six! The age ranges are VERY diverse, and somehow we make it work. Nothing holds us back!

There is a catch to our adventures.  I like our adventures to have some sort of educational focus. The kids tease me that having an ex-teacher for a mom is torture sometimes, but I know they are gaining so much that can’t be learned from books! 

Our adventures consist of day-trips, activities, projects, hiking, long trips, and whatever else comes our way! People are always asking me where to go and what to do, because they know we love to explore. So I decided to start a website to share all of our knowledge about the great places we have found and the fun things we have done!  My goal is to help others find fabulous educational, fun adventures expand their knowledge and their world.
