The Who We Are

Who are these two ne’er-do-wells embarking on such a ridiculous quest? Dani and Lance are life partners who live for adventures together.


Stalwart adventure partners and your hosts.

Stalwart adventure partners and your hosts on this wacky journey!

Dani: “Still becoming.”

Restless and wrestling with interminable questions from day one, Dani enjoys talking about herself in third person (not really), the concept of the ever-evolving person, just doing you, and occasionally making up silly songs about the mundane details because even the tedium of responsible adulthood can be made fun.

She is also rather fond of all manner of word nerdery, especially pun-iness and alliteration, and is an aspiring bird nerd. Additionally, she favors audacious cooking maneuvers, all things eclectic and funky, and undertaking feats of ridiculous proportions because stagnation is a fate worse than death in the mind of a born nomad.

Dani was once logistics professional in a sergeant suit. Now she is HERSELF. Huzzah!


Lance: “Life is too serious to be taken seriously.”

I’m a freethinker and a free spirit. My passions are writing, playing music and seeing good things grow in people’s lives. I was an engineer for almost 15 years until I had my “Office Space” moment and quit in February, 2014. It’s been a non-stop roller coaster ever since!

I’ve studied investing and finance since I became self-employed and the biggest lesson I’ve learned is: I really don’t care about money. A person needs to cover the cost of living, of course. But amassing great amounts of wealth seems to me to be a complete waste of time. Time is life; I want to spend my time actually living.

The pursuit of sustainability works towards so many wonderful goals: a high quality of life, increased well-being in the world around me, even less need for money! The Ambling Full Tilt journey is a way to jump start this new chapter in my life.
