Part 1: Over On the 20th of May we blasted across the top of the USA as fast as we could in order to make it back to Wisconsin for a family get-together over Memorial Day weekend. Our starting point was Vancouver, Washington (think Portland, Oregon) where my brother lives. Google gave us the bad … Continue reading Over… and Out
Oh! The life of a rubber tramp is but a time warp. Entire months go by without us noticing. If I wasn’t wearing this plastic Timex watch (that I found) that displays the date, I honestly wouldn’t know that it’s April. In fact, we are surprised that it is April. It’s hard to muster words … Continue reading California: we hate you, we love you
Now that you know our Rules of Four, you will understand that even if we arrive to camp just in time for sunset and the place is disappointing, we can't actually leave--we just have to suck it up. It was Friday night in Sedona, a popular place this time of year and our options for … Continue reading Crap camp? I take it back!

I'll spare the blogging on this one--here's Big Bend, an amazing National Park that we hadn't heard of before.
We landed in Albuquerque, NM to visit friends and were immediately surprised by the temperature outside. From inside The View, outside looks no different. It's definitely sunny here. But once you fling open that door--whoo!, grab the winter coats! We were having such a fantastic time in the sun we forgot what cold means for … Continue reading Baby, it’s colder than we anticipated.
Ok, ok... we're really going this time! We keep saying that we are headed west to Big Bend National Park but we have been taking our sweet time since the weather has been so dang glorious! This is what we've been up to and as soon as Alex changes the transmission fluid, we will leave … Continue reading The Texas Coast
Life on the road is a true gift if only for the amount of reflection one is allowed whilst driving the vastness of Texas. The grandeur of the space eventually evokes sensations of loneliness and vulnerability. Every now and again Alex and I turn to one another and ask "What are we doing out here?" … Continue reading How the Trump did that happen?
