Jeff and Nikki or Jeffiki (when we spend too much time together)
We are: wanderers, love to learn new skills, have short attention spans in cities and real patience watching wildlife.
We have worked in: outdoor education, trail building, as naturalists, as wranglers, as horsepackers, farriers, in ski racing, photography, editorial writing, graphics design, professional cooking, construction and as warriors with wrenches and sewer thawing equipment for jobs as caretakers.
We are responsible for : a welsh corgi and a gimpy red heeler, two mustangs, two quarter horses and a thoroughbred (pasture pet anyone?) who have often worked with us whether or not they always wanted to.
Our families are awesome, and have been support, pit crew, rescuers, editors and always there for us.
Our favorite places are: often the ones that few people want to visit (the deserts of Nevada for instance), or places without trails, or places we haven't seen yet in person.
We are suckers for: Pixar movies, good audio books, our own elk steak and chocolate (Nikki is the chocolate fiend)
