That Adventure Life
Have dogs, will travel: How the unintended adoption of two stray pups charted new territory for one itinerant adventurer
In December 2016, Jordan Kahana was cruising down the highway in Arizona on his way to the Grand Canyon when he was forced to nearly drive off the road by what looked like two black dots. Jordan pulled over to discover those black splotches on the road were in fact a pair of eight-month-old puppies. Jordan took in the adorable “hitchhikers” and Adventure Squad was born!
The pups, which he named Sedona and Zeus, instantly took to the adventure life and in 2017, Jordan decided to quit his job to travel full time with his dogs. To date, the trio has travelled together to 35 states and 12 National Parks, as well as to a host of tourist hot spots, such as Times Square and Yellowstone National Park, all captured in photos and video. Also, the trio recently embarked on an exciting trip across America, which, as always, was documented in its entirety on Jordan’s social platforms.
Beautiful scenery is highlighted, of course, but what is really showcased is the wonder and fun of travelling with your pack.
While Jordan has had to make some adjustments due to travelling with his dogs—think early starts, itineraries based on dog-friendliness, and having to switch out international travel for road trips across North America—he says the high from new experiences and being able to travel with his awesome furry companions makes it totally worth it.
