Hoppin on instagram this fine day to re-introduce ourselves! . We are the Jurgy Fam, family of three! We sold everything we had, bought and renovated a class A motorhome, and have been traveling the past year, doing ALL 50 states! We didn’t want to just do this as a family, but we wanted to provide and inspire other families to get out and spend time together! That’s when we started burying treasures! We hide treasures that are good for a free adventure, stay, or product/gear that will help you with an adventure! We are doing this in every single state! . We love the outdoors a ton and always seem to be our happiest there. If you want to check out our adventures or get inspiration for your own, we do have a YouTube channel where we share more in depth what we do in each state! . Thanks for being a part of our journey with us. It means the world to us and we love you! ❤️ .

Bryce had a pretty big surprise up his sleeve after having a recent chat with his father. His dad mentioned in a conversation with Bryce that he always tried to provide his kids with enough experiences that would help them in their life, and he was hoping that he had done a good job of that. 

Bryce said the following:

With Father’s Day coming up, I really wanted to do something special for my dad. A while back we were talking about fatherhood, (after our daughter Avalyn was born and made me a father) and my dad made a comment that has stuck with us. He said that he hopes he’s done his part as a father in providing his children with experiences that will help them make it through the rest of their life.

One of those key experiences happened for me on MT Borah and ever since I’ve wanted to go back and summit it with dad. We went when I was 9 and it was one of the most difficult things I had done up to that point, which set a pattern in my life. I wanted to take dad there to show him that, ‘Hey look, you’ve done it. You’ve given me some solid experiences that will stick with me forever.’ A way of saying thanks.

Hopefully, by sharing this experience, it motivates others to reconnect with their fathers and mothers.

Hey look, you’ve done it. You’ve given me some solid experiences that will stick with me forever.

What a beautiful way for a son to show a father that some of the lessons he tried to teach him had, in fact, sunk in. Every father wants to know that things which were important to him, are also important to his family.

Seeing Bryce’s father glide through the sky in the helicopter and say, “This is an experience of a lifetime,” was a fitting way for a father to pass the baton onto his son and say, “Son, you got it.”
