Wide Open World


About Us


Ruby, co-founder
Writer, Photographer, & Website Wizard

Starting a family has been the best thing to ever happen to me. I am a realist though and recognize that *sometimes* just getting out the door is difficult, let alone going on some grand adventure. That’s where Wide Open World comes in.

Back when Gaia was 2 years old and we were planning for a month-long camping across Alaska I found a serious lack of family travel information. Since then, I’ve been passionate about sharing my adventures and misadventures in the hopes that I might make it easier for just one other person.

By spending time outdoors, I am able to free myself of the daily distractions. Our family is able to connect on a deeper level, and I am able to be inspired and grounded. Plus- it's really really fun.

So about me? I love storytelling, traveling, anything to do with playing outside and eating good food (although I don’t write about food, I just like to eat it). I am scared of a lot of things, but I always find a way to push past my fears. I’ve visited several different continents, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends, and nowadays, with my family. I’m raw and unfiltered and try my best to be ridiculously positive. When not traveling, I spend most of my time in Valemount, B.C with my husband, daughter, and pup.

So grab a cup of tea, sit down, and plan your next adventure with us.

To say that Tamey has a taste for adventure would be an understatement. Rarely will you meet someone with such an infectious appreciation for life. Unique to Tamey, is an indomitable spirit of positivity. She has a way about her, that brings out the best in people she meets in her travels. Growing up in a small town in the Rocky Mountains infused her with a passion for nature and an admiration for outdoor activities. Her daring spirit radiates and one can’t help but want to follow her adventures.

Over time, Tamey started receiving messages from friends with questions on how to find the locations that she explored. With this blog, she aims to make accessing the great outdoors as uncomplicated as possible.

She currently resides between Valemount, and Kamloops B.C. with her boyfriend Matt, a perfect compliment to her chaotic lifestyle. When not touring solo, she can often be found flying with him (literally, since he’s a helicopter pilot).
