A Family Adventure

Tyson, Emilie & Isaac


We are avid outdoor enthusiasts. Our most common pursuits are hiking, back country skiing, bicycling, and sea kayaking. We live on a small airport and enjoy flying all over southern New England.

Visit our website every week to learn where we went last weekend, or to get advice on going on your own adventure.

Send us your questions at contact@j3.org.

Being outdoorsy folks, we try to do well by the environment and so we built an energy efficient house in 2010 and have been living there since.
