Hello and welcome to COASTPINE, a blog dedicated to sharing stories of self-discovery found through travel, adventure, and slow-living. I started this blog as an experiment and as a way to document my commitment to living a different and better life, but built with the desire to engage others that are living a life of intention and quality.
The point is to consciously engage with nature, with life, and with the world around us. When we find ourselves out in nature, the trivial falls to the side. Nature right sizes us. It reminds us of how small we are in comparison. It realigns our priorities on things that matter. In turn, allowing us to focus on what we truly care about and giving us the freedom to live a life with intention.
The hope is to become a source of inspiration to others, encouraging them to actively seek and explore the outdoors and slow-living. The vision is to engage.
Not only will COASTPINE be a place where I create and share original content, but I will curate content from contributors from diverse backgrounds. COASTPINE will be an extension of the things I’m passionate about. The content created here will be inspired by mindful outdoor pursuits, open fire cooking, locally sourced goods, makers dedicate to purposeful and crafted living and more.
