  • One Year Later

    April 2020 And just like that…it’s been a year since we arrived in Spokane. A year since the whirlwind of arriving in our new city, making an offer on a house 5 days later, and starting my new full time job the day after that. The most shocking thing about this one year mark is […]

  • 6 Months Later

    October 2019 And just like that…it’s been half a year. Since I last wrote, we sold our beloved 5th wheel, Stumbo, to a sweet couple from Cashmere and sold our truck to a contractor in Western WA. We bought 2 Subarus and got library cards with our real address. Brad started his full time Occupational […]

  • What’s Next

    April 12, 2019 Three years ago today I responded to a Craigslist ad: “Hello, I’m very interested in the 5th wheel you have for sale. My husband & I & our 2 young daughters plan to downsize this year & move into an RV for 1-2 years and travel the country. Your RV has all […]

  • Not Our Cat

    August 27 – September 2, 2018 Perhaps the event in Pocatello that will have the most lasting impact on our family is the introduction of Ginger. During our last week at Cowboy RV, a sweet little orange kitten emerged from a shrub and came to reside outside our camper door. I couldn’t resist giving it […]

  • Pocatello

    August 5 – September 3, 2018 Pocatello, Idaho We spent a whole month in Pocatello, Idaho to explore a part of Idaho we hadn’t seen before. For a rather quiet little rural town, we ended up having quite the month. Our RV Park was also a Mobile home community, and early on the girls befriended […]

  • Wyoming

    July 31 – August 5, 2018 Medicine Bow National Forest, Wyoming After spending every dollar we had on truck repair in Colorado, and staying longer than expected in a $50/night campground to wait for that, we were feeling even more ready than usual to get back out into the country. Brad found us a great […]

  • Loveland

    July 15-31, 2018 Loveland, Colorado If I had written this blog post during the beginning of our stay in the Loveland/Fort Collins area it would have been different.     If I had written this blog in the middle of our stay, my words would have oozed with joy when I shared about our week […]

  • #RoadLessons

    We recently celebrated 700 days on the road. By “celebrated”, I mean I wrote “Happy Day 700” on the white board the night before, but we left the house early the next morning and returned late, so no one else saw it until the day after.  “Oh, it’s day 700?” Coral asks.  “Um, yeah…it was […]

  • Crested Butte

    Crested Butte, Colorado July 2-15, 2018 Crested Butte was 12 days worth of boondocking in an idyllic mountain meadow, reveling in wildflowers, hummingbirds, and friends. I mean, it wasn’t all grand theatrical numbers from The Sound of Music. There were also rainy days of cabin fever, bad attitudes about finishing up our school year, and […]

  • Kanab, UT

    Kanab, UT June 1 – July 2, 2018 We haven’t stayed an entire month in very many places. We spent one winter in Arkansas with my family, and one in Arizona with Brad’s family. Besides that we have only done the “month stay” in 3 locations…Wenatchee, WA, Pahrump, NV, and now Kanab, UT. Since we […]

    Bryce Canyon, Utah May 25 – June 1, 2018 In our first loop around the US we only visited Bryce Canyon National Park and the surrounding area on one quick day trip.  And like so many parts of Utah, it demanded a second more thorough look. We found a wonderful boondocking spot right between Red […]
