Hi! I’m Bailey, a thirty-something small-time American adventurer based in my hometown of Lodi, California. I used to think being “Stuck in Lodi” was the worst thing that could happen to a grown-up Lodian. After stretching my legs for a few years around California, Colorado, Washington, and Louisiana, I wheeled my suitcases back home in 2015 to take a stab at the simple life. It won me over quickly. I have learned to keep plants alive, married an excellent human, and raised a good dog–look at me go! I look forward to sharing my homeward discoveries and other adventures with you and you and you!
