Working our way east, to take care of some business (those pesky health things that just don’t go away) we rushed through most of the entire west-to-mid-west. we ticked five (yes FIVE National Parks off our list in under two weeks (can you say exhausted) and stopped in at some tourist-trappy gems like Wall Drug and the […]
our trip to alaska was a learning experience. we realized a lot about what we need to exist. number one on that list: our car = our freedom. without it we were trapped in a cycle of bad food choices, nothing to do that didn’t rely on the shuttle schedule and ultimately a scary health […]
hey friends. I’ve been the worst at blog-updating, but with good reason. we’re in alaska, as I might have mentioned in a previous post and we’ve been working six days a week. on the seventh day we try to get in adventures, laundry, internet time and rest. *try being the operative word. we’re seeing most of […]
months and miles.
today marks the day. the sixth month anniversary of loading up the car, waving goodbye to lake erie, cleveland, ohio…..and heading out on the great adventure. we honestly had no idea what we were doing. like, no clue. I mean, sure we’d plotted out a general course…looked at a million blogs about how […]
finding life in death valley.
my son needed a little break from the winter doldrums back in grey-skies-will spring-never-arrive-cleveland, so we sent him a ticket to fly into las vegas and planned a few days of camping and a visit to death valley national park. now the name death valley conjures up a desolate, barren wasteland of nothingness. a mad […]
a long time ‘bucket list’ item was seeing the beauty that is white sands national monument. we headed into new mexico to make use of the warm-ish weather and avoid the rain that was pummeling the west (including parts of arizona and nevada, where we had been…) and so it seemed we were finally going […]
it’s been a while. updates are hard when the internet is spotty. it’s not that we haven’t had things to update! we’ve been to many places since my last post: we left the california area and headed back through nevada. but not without seeing some fabulous graffiti and abandoned things along the way. stopping at […]
driving across the country, the landscapes and landmarks fly by the window, and just like in life, you don’t really know what you’ve missed until you sit back and contemplate the memories (or in this case….scroll through iphoto) also, just like in life, being on the road has it’s ups and downs as we’ve learned. […]
kindness of strangers.
we woke up friday morning all kinds of stressed: would the radiator arrive? would they get it installed today? how much is it going to cost? all things running through our head, and making it impossible to focus on anything else. we left the hotel at 11 (after the kind lady at the front desk did […]
the long road out of texas.
we had no idea how much time we would spend in texas, or, honestly, how much we’d enjoy that time. frankly, I was amazed at the beauty. we’re now stuck so close to the far west border of the state, waiting out a car repair. we’re in a perfectly comfortable hotel (120 channels! free wifi! free […]
