Welcome to the day-by-day snapshots of our life as we dive into new experiences, learn some lessons, suffer a little, grow, and explore new and interesting places.

7,223 Miles, 123 Nights, 63 Destinations.

Our West Coast journey is complete! Lily and I reluctantly returned home just in time for the tail end (we hope) of the rains that will produce a typical stunning Seattle spring and summer season. Bring on the allergies!!!! Before we sign off for the summer, here’s a look at our travel map: the route … Continue reading

Fire, Death, and Parachute Shields.

Lily and I wrapped up our month in Utah and prepared to head into Nevada for the final stretch of our West Coast trip. Alas, the snow caught up with us and we woke up to a winter surprise on our last morning in Kanab. The day before it was super windy with dust and … Continue reading

Dramatic Canyons, Famous Valleys, and Crimson Spires.

We are wrapping up our time in Moab and still exploring this fascinating area. It’s quite a small town but I actually found a little local grocery store that carries all my favorite organic food brands that I regularly enjoy back home in Seattle. Canyonlands National Park Next on the list is Canyonlands and I … Continue reading

Majestic Rock Faces and Natures Architecture.

At last, we arrive at the mightiest and most spectacular of the National Parks. This is probably the highlight of our West Coast trip and our first time camping inside a National Park. It was awesome in every sense of the word. Zion National Park What can one say about Zion except it is simply … Continue reading

Red Rocks and a Sandstone Wonderland.

We are back in Arizona after a week in Albuquerque wrapping up errands. ABQ treated us well altho the temps dropped well below freezing every night. The truck is serviced, Amazon packages collected, Trader Joe’s stocked, and now we are ready to get back on the road and see more amazing stuff. Petroglyph National Monument … Continue reading

Tombstone, AZ Before … Continue reading

Wind Farms. A Saline Lake. The Green Desert.

Lily and I are very much enjoying the desert winter as everyone back home in Seattle endures snow and rain and gloom. I’ve worn shorts everyday since we arrived in the desert just before the holidays. Anyway, here’s what we’ve been up to while most everyone was taking down decorations and thinking about getting back … Continue reading

Anza-Borrego Desert, and Rainbows!

Lily and I arrived in the desert just before Christmas with much anticipation and curiosity and we were not disappointed. The drive over on Hwy 8 was really cool. The geography of the area is super rocky, hilly, and barren. We came pretty close to the Mexico border and even saw a glimpse of the … Continue reading

California Coast, part 3.

Our time on the Malibu coast was interesting. We had two major rain/wind storms and then just the wind which caused my allergies to explode. I was miserable for several days. But, it was undeniably beautiful where we stayed and I got to visit with friends while we were here. It was a good week … Continue reading

California Coast, part 2.

Lily and I spent a low-key week in Ventura at the vintage Airstream park. It was some good down time to get stocked up on groceries and collect some deliveries from Amazon. In case you were wondering how I get Amazon deliveries on the road, it’s really easy, you just select a location nearby that … Continue reading
