In this episode of the Zero To Travel Podcast you'll hear how one family has been living their nomad dream and how you can plan a longer bike trip with your family.

In their words, here is how Francois, Cécile and their daughter Emma describe their nomad dream:

"Living a family adventure around the world, at the slow and active pace of our touring bikes. Living our passion for climbing and outdoor activities. Being outside in the rain, the wind, under the sun and the stars. Meeting and knowing people from everywhere and sharing their daily life. Speaking spanish, french, english, russian. Stepping out of our comfort zone, forgetting our habits, putting back things into perspective. Living simply, with the bare necessities, ecologically. Reading all the pages of the book. Living our dream."

Why did they choose to do an adventure cycle tour?

"Because we just don’t imagine any other way of traveling. Simple, convenient, active and ecological, cycle touring is for us the perfect way to travel at a human pace to take time to embrace sceneries, atmospheres, silence. Exposed to all winds, bike touring is also a wide open window to the world and a unique visa to meet other people."

[Tweet "Listen to this family's amazing adventure cycling trip! #travel #podcast #epicbikerides"]

Give this podcast a listen now and you'll learn:

What it is like to settle into a trip like this
How to deal with taking your kids out of school to travel
How traveling with kids can make it easier to meet locals along the way
What they did to prepare for this trip
Why cycle touring with your family is accessible
Why this type of trip is safe for any family

Why they decided to go home after 15,000km

Have you ever had the urge to leave it all behind and go long distance hiking?
Living for months out on the trail and getting reconnected with nature is a dream come true for many people.

Although a long distance hike itself can be physically and emotionally challenging, figuring out how to find the time and money to go on this type of adventure is not as hard as you think.

In the summer of 2013, en route from Taos, NM to Boulder, Co. I pit stopped in Salida, CO. A small, and disgustingly charming mountain town.

Salida (pronounce Sa-Lie-Dah) packs gorgeous Colorado scenery, and an in town whitewater course. This gem of a place lacks pretension and maintains a somewhat gritty, off the beaten path feel. Needless to say, on a beautiful summer day, it's hard to resist.

Which is why is was an easy decision to spend the night at the Simple Lodge & Hostel, crack a Dale's Pale Ale and relax.

What I didn't know at the time was that the hostel was packed with a small group of some of the most accomplished hikers in the country.

Enter Estero, Soft Walker, Don't Panic, Turbo and Papa Smurf, five hikers who were on a break from hiking the Continental Divide Trail from Mexico to Canada and spending the night.

As if this weren't enough, most of them had also completed the 'Triple Crown', which means they have already hiked the 3 main long distance hikes in the USA, a combined 8000+ miles of trail walking!

To put this accomplishment in perspective, it's been said that fewer people have completed the triple crown than have gone to outer space.

Salida is located just off of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) and this group of thru hikers were taking a rest day in town.

Thankfully, they agreed to a group interview to share their expertise on long distance hiking.

You may have to crank up the sound as the interview was recorded in the backyard of the hostel which was not optimal sound wise, but trust me, the knowledge of tens of thousands of trail miles packed into this podcast is well worth a listen.
In this session you'll learn:

How to structure your life to accommodate the thru hiking lifestyle. (Hint: this essential advice go work for any experience driven lifestyle choice)
How much a 4-6 month hike will cost and specific ideas on how to raise the funds so you can start your quest
Long distance hiking subculture, social life in the wilderness, trail names, trail angels, zero days and other terms to know
The one piece of equipment that can save your life
How to put your career on the side and make hiking the priority instead of the other way around
The two best 'shorter' long hikes to take if you have limited time but want a real thru-hiking experience
How to minimize your life for the trail
What a 'shakedown hike' is and why you should consider doing at least one
