Is Violence Too Widespread To Enjoy An American Road Trip?

Tera Bucasas and Spencer Norris had a dream.

The Seattle-based married couple sold their possessions. They bought a 2014 Dodge ProMaster and converted it into a camper van. They put their mountain bikes on the back and stuck a surfboard and a stand-up paddleboard on the roof.

In April, they drove down the west coast of the United States, taking a circuitous route through some of America’s best-known national parks. “We don’t have a defined timeline for our trip,” says Tera.

The 30-year old quit her job as a yoga teacher before taking her life on the road.

Thirty-one year old Spencer created Wanderman Media. He’s a freelance videographer, often flying to specific locations for work, before meeting Tera back at their home on wheels.
