Bobby and Maura Marko currently live in Excelsior, MN with their 3 year old son, Jack, 1 year old daughter, Rowan, and 7 year old Golden Retriever, Latigo. They have been adventuring together since meeting in 2007 while working at Tomahawk Scout Reservation in Birchwood, WI. For the past 10 years they have explored together participating in numerous types of outdoor recreation. Some of their trips include hiking the 133 mile Kerry Way in Ireland, rock climbing in Chamonix, France, Horseback riding through the remote wilderness areas of the Sierras in California, and paddling through the Boundary Waters.
Now parents to two beautiful children their adventures have taken on different parameters and meaning. On their most recent adventure they attempted a 21 day trip across the arrowhead of Minnesota by bike, canoe, and foot.
Maura and Bobby are extremely passionate about encouraging other parents to take the plunge and continue, or begin, an adventurous lifestyle with kids along for the fun! They write a blog, We Found Adventure, where they provide everything from trip reports, to gear reviews, to some of their best tips and tricks for bringing kids along on various types of adventures.
