Idea to become a blogger was born.

Late this year, after traveling and visiting several locations, several followers on our social media started telling us we needed to blog about our adventures so the idea was born and we eventually came up with the name based on the beautiful backroads in the south and delicious burgers we found along the way.

2019
Almost disbanded because of COVID-19 and burnout

Almost disbanded because of COVID-19 and burnout. It was so hard to do what we loved the most during the pandemic. After being left with the business alone, Brandi was not sure she wanted to continue.

2020
Rebranded with the help of Dori Lowe

After approaching Dori and discussing the issues with Backroads, we decided mutually to rebrand it and focus more on Destination Bloggers and after filing the appropriate paperwork, we were literally off to the races. Dori and I became co-owners and the success since then has been unmatched to the previous years.

2021
Dori became co-owner

The Backroads Team is now averaging 8-10 trips a year, working with CVB’s, Tourism Bureaus, and private businesses, in addition to being full-time public educators.
