Hello, stranger. My name is Luke. This site is about the random and often stupid things I do with my life.

I love a good adventure, traveling, road trips, hiking, camping, photography, reading, building things, and not knowing what tomorrow will bring. I do programming for a living, but you’re probably a bigger nerd than me.

I spent a short time in March 2015 hiking part of the Appalachian Trail. After that, I built a custom camper van and spent the summer driving around the country, mostly out West, visiting National Parks and doing a lot of hiking. I also finally drove Route 66.

My most recent project was building a tiny house with the intention of living an off-grid lifestyle. I bought some heavily wooded land out in the country and will be moving the tiny house there sometime this year (2018).
