TEAM QUILOMENE, #110

VEHICLE: 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser

Naomi and Amy were raised by fathers who passed along a love of adventure and nature. Naomi spent her childhood hiking the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific Northwest. She is happiest exploring new paths and breathing fresh air. Amy grew up in a house in Colorado whose backyard was a nature park, dragging her brother up rock walls and into mysterious caves. Her father was a devoted road-tripper, pledging to get the family to all U.S. states west of the Mississippi (she’s only missing Oklahoma).

Today, Naomi translates her love of outdoor adventure into her life as a stay-at-home Mom, homeschooling 3 girls, ages 13, 11 and 5. She believes in teaching her children not to learn just for school, but for life. She’s a textile artist and chronic DIY-er. Amy spends her time working in and enjoying downtown Seattle. She has a grown stepdaughter and son. She works hard to maintain a deep, meaningful connection with her kids, watching them blossom into healthy productive adults.

Both women are committed to fit and healthy lifestyles. Naomi and her family hike and backpack together, while Amy is a devoted yoga practitioner and bike rider.

Team Quilomene is our name, and it comes from the Quilomene, which is the wilderness area and wildlife refuge in Central Washington, where we met and camped together multiple times at the beginning of our friendship. It’s near and dear to our hearts, and is composed of sage steppes and pine, with beautiful animal and plant life.
