On the rode

welcome to

travel with us

Hi! We are Krissy & Ben Harclerode (pronounced Har-cul-road)

we are adventrepreneurs, PHOTOGRAPHERS, outdoor athletes, & environmental advocates, sharing our time on the road. whether we are living in our self-converted 4x4 sprinter van, luther, or on top of a mountain in another country, we are happy to share the adventure.

Our individual lives & life together have been incredibly enriched NOT ONLY by experiencing other cultures around the world, BUT BY using our experiences as inspiration to capture & create. In an effort to provoke adventure & fulfillment in others,  We share our discoveries of the world with the world.

we also guide small group adventures to multiple continents, cameras in hand.

Who we are &
what we're About

As you know, we are Krissy & Ben.

We are dog parents to Keaton & Ernie, who are the reason we keep our international travels under two weeks long.

When stateside, you can find our little family in our self-converted 4x4 van, luther.

WE ARE NOT HOME OWNERS, AS TRAVEL IS STILL AT THE FOREFRONT OF OUR PRIORITY LIST.

WE ARE NOT PARENTS to any humans & DON'T PLAN ON HAVING any human KIDS. And that's ok.

We are newbie mountaineers with big climbing goals & aspirations.

We are remote nutrition coaches, as nutrition is nature's OG medicine & we like feeling good on our strenuous adventures.

We are the founders of "Go the fuck outside", an eco-friendly brand that inspires & protects.

we prefer sunrises to sunsets.

Our first date was a 45mi backpacking trip through Glacier National Park backcountry in 2016. We tied the knot two years & one day later.
