Karin Thul, Adventure Enthusiast

Two adults, three kids, one Airstream, 14 states, two provinces, 8,000 miles, and six weeks later, this epic trip created a lifetime of memories.

Associate Partner Karin Thul and her family are nothing if not adventurous. In June 2023, they packed the family Airstream and set out on a six-week expedition from Fort Lauderdale to Canada and back.

Trip highlights (that we could fit on one page) included: hiking long, isolated trails through eight National Parks; a multitude of animal sightings from bears to wild horses; canoeing through the glacial Bow River waters in Banff; introducing the kids to snow (and fireflies) for the very first time; and finally hitting their 100th game of I Spy. Life lessons were learned by all, including how to do elk calls using a blade of grass in Alberta, how to ward off bears in Glacier, and what to do when you’re driving near a tornado in South Dakota.

The pictures speak for themselves, and we cannot wait to live vicariously through the next great Thul Family Adventure!
