Show 207… The Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike: Renee Tougas



Greetings, I am Vivienne McNeny and I believe homeschooling to be a unique experience.

I am excited this week to be talking to Renee Tougas who lives on the side of a mountain in the Gaspe Peninsula of Quebec in Canada.  She and her husband, Damien, who has a site featuring barefoot and minimalist footwear, homeschool their three children ages 15, 13 and 11.  They are location independent, which means they can both work from home wherever they are.  Together they are a family of outdoors enthusiasts, artists, adventurers, programmers, homemakers, and followers in the way of Christ.  Renee is self confessed creative spirit with a practical perspective and down-to-earth approach.  She excels at getting things done and managing the details but doesn’t forget to smell the daisies by appreciating and capturing the beauty around her. However, that’s not why I’m excited to feature Renee on my show this week.  Last month I managed to record a conversation we had before things got too busy for her to take a break in her local café to chat with me.  Too busy doing what you may ask?  Renee and her family are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime, thru hikingthe Appalachian Trail and making a video series for us to join them virtually!  I’ll let Renee tell you all about it herself this Friday so bring a cup of tea to my show and get to know this fascinating woman whose blog is an acronym for Fun in My Back Yard.
