About Us

The Open Road Project exists to spread kindness and meet the needs of strangers. We travel in a 1979 GMC Vanguard named Lily. These are our stories.

Porch Smoothies

Seven and a half hours into the New Year, Lily was packed up and pulling out of Jer's driveway in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and onto the Open Road. When we caught wind of a breakfast offer from some of our friends, Kayla and Karissa, we knew that our adventure would begin before we even left Niagara! We later found out that Jordan had essentially invited himself over, but the girls were surprisingly happy to be waking up at the crack of dawn to make us breakfast.

Jan 1, 8:00am: the one time of year when you can expect almost every human to be sleeping. Traditionally, blenders and sleep haven't jived well, so we enjoyed our first meal of the New Year outside, and accidentally invented the sure-to-catch-on "porch smoothie."

It seemed very fitting that we spent our first meal of the New Year outside (in the cold), and it was also nice that Kayla and Karissa joined us in solidarity.
