Husband and wife team of The Grit and Polish, Garrett and Cathy Poshusta join us as we talk about being an Airbnb host, how they feel about strangers in their home, and some small tangents of dinosaurs and D.B. Cooper.

You can download this episode from your favorite podcast listening app (how?) or listen to it below. Check here for links, photos, and any video talked about during the show!

Drink of the Day

Blood Orange flavor didn’t help Dasani Sparkling Water taste any better for hosts Ren and Ashley, even though Ashley loves water. Perhaps another flavor? Perhaps just plain Dasani?

Guest Spotlight

Garrett and Cathy join us from the Seattle area for our podcast episode. They renovate historic old homes to rent long term and short term. Several of their homes have been listed on Airbnb and they share their knowledge with us of what it’s like to be in charge of one rather than renting one.

You can rent the gorgeous Dexter House in WestLake by visiting their profile here. Reach out to Garrett through Airbnb and be sure to mention GoneTrippin Podcast for a discount! (Thanks Garrett!)

When not working on a renovation or The Grit and Polish, Cathy and Garrett share with us how they travel with kids: lower your expectations, be on the kids schedule a bit more, and integrate the travel around what the kids like. They are headed on some fun road trips coming up so be sure to follow along on their adventures!

You can find out more about The Grit and Polish and see their awesome renovations by visiting their website, following them on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, or YouTube.

Bucket List

Our guests have been able to knock a few of these items off their bucket list already thanks to their young boys. If you love dinosaurs, try:

The Poshusta family’s favorite places to camp are Orcas Island, Wenatchee National Forest, and North Cascades National Park (don’t forget the North Cascades Highway in the summer!).

Movie Madness

Is it possible to mention Astoria, Oregon and not mention Goonies and Roxanne were filmed there?
