Bourn Adventure started as Bakes FJ which was a small business built around our 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser. While owning the FJ, we traveled to all lower 48 states and parts of Canada on several different road trips (some more than 10,000 miles long), attended numerous off-road events, and met thousands of people along the way.
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 of 2017 after I put her belly up on a snow-covered road in Oregon.
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. Since the rebrand, we have expanded our travels, website, and are working on new and exciting places to visit. 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. If we can influence just one person to explore the world around them, we accomplished what we set out to do. If someone can not physically take an adventure, then we hope they can see the world through us.
To date, we have traveled about 110,000 miles just on road trips within the United States and many thousands of miles more internationally. Some of our adventures include seeing natural beauty at places like: Grand Canyon National Park, Arches National Park, and Acadia National Park. We have also visited man-made areas like Petra and Jerash (both in Jordan) that date back thousands of years.

I just stumbled upon your site after looking up some FJ content and I have to know, are you related to the Bourn family from the NW Illinois area? My dad is Bill Bourn, his father was Eldon Bourn.
