Journey Monkeys our travel blog.  It’s about our journeys around the world, and through life, and is written by  Louellen Coker and Duane Coker, your official Journey Monkeys! In the 30+ years we’ve been married, we’ve consistently held that life is best lived in motion.  This blog is our reflection on that movement.

Our goal is to share our adventures with family and friends, as well as anyone who is venturing forth on a similar journey of their own. Additionally, we’ll include thoughts about places we’ve stayed, restaurants, and other attractions, we visited, and discussion of gear we used.  The information you find in this blog is totally our opinion and perspective. Though we sincerely hope your adventures are as fun as ours have been, we offer no promises, warranties, or other such stuff that your experiences will be similar to ours.

Oh, and by the way, there were no monkeys harmed, injured, or used for testing in any way during the adventures that contributed to the making of this blog. 😉

Duane L. Coker is an attorney and the founding shareholder of Coker, Robb & Cannon, Family Lawyers, a family law firm with offices in Denton, Frisco, Little Elm, and Fort Worth, Texas.  He married his high school sweetheart, Louellen, way back in 1990 and they’ve rarely stopped “journeying” since.  Duane is an avid outdoorsman, who enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, snowboarding, and backcountry split boarding (and pretty much anything else outdoors).  He is a triathlete and has competed at every level, including the 2019 ITU World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain.  Duane likes to play hard, and is hard on his gear, so has no problem “telling it like it is” when writing about the gear he’s used during his various adventures.
