Gwyn and Ami

A civil engineer and a Ph.D. student and researcher on an adventure-filled trek around the west coast in their superb campervan this summer. Together, they are Big Gay Advanture and share quite a beautiful story. They exchanged vows in June 2021, not only for the beautiful weather that time of year but also as a nod to Pride Month and the values which it represents.

If you follow them on Instagram, you know of the bright, colorful light they emit to their followers. If you don’t follow them, then you should!

Amiana is from Sacramento, California, and Gwyneth is from Cherry Hill, New Jersey; both live full-time in their campervan together on the West Coast while creating unforgettable memories and working and studying remotely. The pair combine their passions for the outdoors, preserving public lands, learning, and spreading love wherever they roam. Theirs is a journey we can all be proud of.

"We are both passionate about exploring nature together while treading lightly and leaving no trace wherever we go!" In fact, they often consider the quote by the fifth Oregon State Park superintendent, Samuel Boardman, "By retaining the natural, harming as little as possible, you better serve those who are to follow." That sentiment rings truer by the day as we face major global challenges. Setting a positive example of how to best appreciate and respect the Earth while enjoying it are apparent aspects of their mission.

What is your favorite MPOWERD product and how do you use it?

We love our Luci string lights! They are perfect mood lighting in our van, at our camp spots, and setting up outside when hanging out with friends!

An ideal weekend for Gwyn & Ami?

Our ideal weekend involves some epic alpine hikes and soaking in some hot springs! We love ending our days with good, healthy, homemade food in the van and drinking a local brew.

We all want to change and improve our world. What is the most important thing that you would change or fix today with the snap of your fingers?

This is a no-brainer for us - we would snap our fingers to fix the climate crisis our world is experiencing. It's so apparent from our van travels that our world is suffering, and we want to ensure the Earth is healthy for future generations.
