About Matt & Cheryl

25K Subscriber Special! Q & A [Disasters, Future Plans, & Wildlife Encounters]

We’re Matt & Cheryl, and we’ve been married for over 20 years and we have 4 kids. We love road-tripping in the West and seeing our national parks.

We were both raised by parents who took us on many vacations. We met at Weber State University in our beloved home state of Utah. We still live near our parents and travel with them often.

Matt worked for the federal government for 16 years and taught adjunct American history classes at Weber State University. He loves baseball, golf, books, friends, and writing.

Cheryl has taught special education for 25 years and loves her students as well as her summers off. She loves teaching Zumba to her students, anything Disney, and making lists.

Of course, we love hanging out with our kids and watching them do their sports or hobbies.

We have enjoyed meeting so many of you in person and online. It’s been our pleasure to help you travel to the West!
