Guess who just finished their first-weekend hosting guests?!
These two...well...technically three, are the newest members of the Maple family and will be your guides over the next nine months.
Like everyone who lands on our river bank for a season, Clint Gingrich and Michaela Chamings bring with them an unwavering trajectory of journeying through life on roads much less traveled. And they also bring Summit, a tiny pup who will grow up right alongside us all.
These week-old newlyweds met while Clint biked around in Australia, which Michaela calls home. What was supposed to be a few months of peddling has turned into a life that has been taking them on a ride ever since.
With backgrounds in seasonal hospitality work, guest service training, cafe management, and solar power installation, these two bring with them a calm and steady presence that seems to symbolize our collective approach to what feels like our first sort-of-normal Summer season!
Living the Van Life around through the last year of the pandemic in California, I think we all feel at ease with them now calling Maple home!
Put your bike helmets on, you two. It's gonna be a wild ride!
