Our Journey 

On January 1, 2015, we left our lives in Boston behind for the opportunity to live and work at Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in the high desert mountains of rural New Mexico. We worked hands on with wolves, wolf-dogs, coyotes and other wild canines every day for two years. 

On January 1, 2017, we set off on a new mission, traveling for six months throughout Southeast Asia. We studied various forms of meditation and yoga. We explored ancient cities and lost temples. We swam with Manta's and came face to face with Kimodo Dragons. We also had a life-changing experience volunteering at Elephant Nature Park in northern Thailand. Throughout our time traveling the fertile ground,  we were planting seeds, brainstorming and planning the creation of what would become KSU. 

After returning to the States, and traveling more still, we eventually settled on a quiet river in central New Hampshire, and on January 1, 2018, we officially launched Know Stone Unturned.
