Bourn Adventure is a veteran owned and operated business based in Southern Louisiana. We focus on traveling, both domestic and international and sharing the adventures with you. We also sell some rad stickers, patches, and t-shirts, if you're into that kind of thing.
Bourn Adventure started as Bakes FJ in 2012 as a small business built around our Toyota FJ Cruiser. While owning the FJ, we traveled to all lower 48 states and parts of Canada, attended several off road events, and met thousands of people.
Our Toyota FJ Cruiser was simply named "The FJ" and gained popularity in the off-road community due to our travels, pictures, and a few silly videos we put out. Sadly, the FJ was totaled in January 2017 after I put her belly up on a snow covered road in Oregon (read article here).
Ashlie and I decided we did not want the roll over to be the end of our story or the end of Bakes FJ. In fact, we wanted to start a new chapter! Bourn Adventure is just that. We now have motorcycles, a MINI Cooper, and a Lexus GX470 that we use as our adventure vehicles, with additional makes and models to follow later on. The name has changed, but the adventure remains the same!
One of the definitions for Bourn is, "a goal or destination." We figured that paired well with our adventurous spirit and desire to share experiences with others.
To date, we estimate we have traveled about 95,000 miles just on road trips. Our main hope and goal with Bourn Adventure is to encourage people to get out there and explore, then share their stories with others.
The world is a large place, and life is short. Together, we can accomplish much more than we ever could alone.
