About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    Loved the video. Even though it was cloudy at times, I can just imagine what the Rockies look like on a beautiful sunny day. Have been keeping some of your math students at MHS up to date on your travels. Wishing you safe travels as you continue your journey.

    Thanks Evelyn!! How is everything back at MHS? There are days when I miss the kids – and other days when I don’t at all!!

    What a great vidio!! Hurry on south, snowed on top of the rockies this week, 3 inches at Breckenridge. You will be a hop, skip and jump from me when you reach Moab, if you have any special needs, let me know and I can find you there. It would be a great adventure for me…..road trip…..

    Wow! I just stumbled onto your blog via a “rabbit trail” and just had to say this- we live in the BC part of the Canadian Rockies and my husband is pretty sure he saw your family pedal by in Jasper National Park when he was there a bit ago!

    Your adventure sounds fantastic – the world is a classroom!

    May you be safe and have fun.

    Wow! I am so impressed with the kids doing this, and as a family, you must be incredibly close. My husband and I are currently cycling Mexico to Argentina and are in Nicaragua, getting ready to go to Costa Rica tomorrow. DonĀ“t worry about skpping any Central American countries, they are safer than the guide books would have you believe!

    Any words of wisdom for us, Jacqueline?? I have nothing but fond memories of Central America from my Peace Corps days, so can’t wait to get back down there!!

    Bobbie-Jo – We’re pretty noticeable on the road, so I bet your husband did pass us. What a beautiful area you live in – too bad it was rainy and yucky when we passed through!

    Judi – I’ll give you a holler if we need anything when we get down there!!

    This video brought tears to my eyes! The beauty you’ve seen up close is breathtaking! Thank you so much for sharing your adventure with us (22 mo. old DS loves to watch, too). For as much as I love travel, you’re doing something I will never offer my son. Thanks for giving him the virtual adventure!
