We are Rodney and Dianna Wehr.
Together we have decided to live our life in a way so that when we’re ancient:
We will look back on the past with huge grins on our wrinkled faces!
We are pursuing a satisfied, healthy, long life. In this complicated, contradictory, consumer-driven modern world, we’re devoted to modeling a life we are proud of to our daughter. We may not always succeed at this goal because we are, after all, imperfect humans. But we’ve decided to make choices towards the life we want instead of stagnating in a settled existence that … just … happens.
We both grew up in Alaska. We met in 7th grade, went to the same high school, and we even danced together at senior prom. Nonetheless, our paths lay along divergent trajectories – or so it seemed. For about 10 years, we made our separate ways through the world, with marriages, graduate studies, oceans and continents between us. And then, in 2010, our paths intersected again … right back in the same small town where we first met. Since then we’ve forged our way together.
We don’t know exactly what lies ahead; we’re continually adjusting our short and longterm goals. Currently, we plan to leave Alaska in August of 2018 to pursue the lifestyle changes we’ve been dreaming of. We’re planning for an indefinite period of slow travel with the goal to live fully and deliberately.
