Mountain Bound.

The Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains

A Road Trip With Meaning


Summer is here and the mountains are calling! Join us for a small group, guided, caravan adventure through the beautiful Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. Clear your head, connect with nature and share some memorable and  meaningful experiences.

Upcoming Summer Trips:



Learn more about yourself and connect with fellow travelers through a discovery program involving daily journal prompts, gratitude circles, discussions and more. Together, we can dig deeper into what it means to be human and live a life of meaning and joy.



Enjoy guided hikes and adventures that will take you out of your comfort zone and leave you awestruck. The true internal adventure could mean sitting along the shore of a lake, watching water flow down stream or moving meditation on a hike.  It’s your journey.



Enjoy van life for a few days with cozy amenities or learn to pitch a tent and be one with nature! We can accommodate all types of campers and will work with you to find the best option to fit your  needs. 

The Itinerary

5 Days / 4 Nights in the Eastern Sierras

We'll begin each day with coffee, a gratitude circle, meditation and breakfast! Then we'll hit the road for a day of sightseeing and adventure in the mountains with a roadside lunch. We'll be enjoying hikes in the mountains, sightseeing, swimming in lakes, soaking in hot springs and ending each day with a healthy and hearty supper and communal campfire activities and conversations.

Discovery Program

We believe that nature not only provides us with adventure, but also a space for growth and connection with others. This is why each road trip includes a discovery program with journal prompts, group discussions and gratitude experiences that will help us to grow personally and together as fellow travelers.

The Pursuit Is Happiness


We all want to be happy - but what is happiness and how do we find it? We’ve all heard the cliche that life is about the journey but what is the journey and how do we find contentment in the moment? We’ll explore all of this together as we dive into our collective pursuit of happiness.

Why Us?

Traveling can be daunting, especially when it comes to spending time in the outdoors. It's difficult to know where to go, what you will need to bring and how to get the most out of your adventure. That's where we come in! We'll take care of the details. Everything from reserving camp sites, picking out activities and supplying healthy hearty gourmet meals for breakfast and dinner is taken care of. 


Our guided experiences offer tangible teaching moments and discussions with epic natural settings. With a focus on gratitude, we'll start and end our days together by diving into the heart of what it means to be human and live a life of fulfillment and joy.

Travel creates an opportunity to bond with fellow travelers and experience new places, cultures, and people that are outside of our comfort zone. The opportunity to transform is inherently possible in every journey. At TWM, we provide the foundation for openness, knowledge, growth, and happiness to accompany each of us while experiencing inner jounrey and outter adventures.

But it's not only about the deep stuff! Our trips are packed with fun!  We'll enjoy adrenaline pumping activities, games, share stories around the fire and as many s'mores as you can eat!


"I have never taken a trip like this before, but I am so glad I did because it was such a memorable experience for my wife and I. The outdoor adventures were amazing, meals were delicious and easy to cook, and there is nothing like ending the night under the stars and around the campfire. Mike and Jack were so welcoming and helped show us a new appreciation for nature, each other, and what it really means to travel with meaning."
