On the rode

welcome to

home is where our plants are, in reno-tahoe

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

we are outdoor athletes, environmental advocates, & adventure photographers, sharing our time on the road. whether we are on a road trip in our self-converted 4x4 sprinter van or on top of a mountain in foreign lands, we are happy to virtually take you with us.

Our individual lives, & especially our life together, have been incredibly enriched NOT ONLY by travel, BUT BY DOCUMENTING OUR ADVENTURES & sharing stories. We want nothing more than to show our discoveries of the world to the world,  so we use photography to share BOTH THE JOURNEY & THE DESTINATION in an effort to provoke adventure in others.

Who we are &
what we're About

Above, you learned about what we "do". Now we would like to "formally" introduce ourselves.

As you already know, we are Krissy & Ben.

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

When home, you can usually find our little family in our converted van, luther.

or tending to our 64 house plants in our rental home.

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 human KIDS.

We are newbie mountaineers.

We are the founders of "Go the fuck outside".

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.

In between those dates, we built a business  (and a van) together, which has created the freedom for us to see the world.
