About Us

We are Scott and Julie. We are so happy you found our blog, Miles with McConkey.

After nearly 30 years of working in the corporate world, we decided to go into semi-retirement October, 2021 at ages 51 and 48.  Our 4 adult children, 3 dogs and 2 cats are very supportive of our journey.

COVID-19 and life’s challenges have given us a different perspective on life.  We did not want to risk working until age 70 before traveling.  We decided to take a leap of faith and to enjoy more adventures now while we are a bit younger and have more energy.  We realize this is not a traditional path.  We are blessed to have the opportunity to spend time together, traveling to places we always dreamed about.

Come along with us as we go to most of the national parks, Disney World, Alaska, Hawaii, Disneyland and as many states as we can.

Unlike others, we will not be getting an RV.  We love our house and will use it as our home base.  We plan to go somewhere every couple of weeks.  Life is short and the world is wide.  Join us as we travel from coast to coast.  We hope to inspire you to have more adventures of your own.
