A Family Adventure

Tyson, Emilie & Isaac


This blog chronicles the adventures of our family. Most weekends we do something fun and we post stories, pictures, and video from our trips. All posts are back-dated to the day of the trip they describe, so the listed dates may be out of order in the main feed.

We are avid outdoor enthusiasts. Our most common pursuits are hiking, back country skiing, and sea kayaking.

We live on a small airport and enjoy flying all over southern New England.

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.


Emilie Phillips


I lead ski trips for the NH Appalachian Mountain Club. I am a Professional Ski Instructors of America certified level 1 instructor for telemark and for cross country. I am an avid sea kayaker. I enjoy surfing, rock play, and long distance races. I also have passed my BCU 3* certification and am working towards the next level. For motorized sports, I fly an RV-4 and I occasionally find time to ride my motorcycle.
Professionally, I work as a software engineer in robotics. For full details, see my resume.

Tyson Sawyer


Tyson needs to add his own bio. He does most of the same things as Emilie. And here is his resume.
