Hello New Hampshire – Another Amazing Driveway Surf

Southern New Hampshire was a bit of a diversion, but totally worth it! We pulled up stakes in our amazing private driveway in Warren, Vermont with excitement in our eyes for our next stop. As many know, we pretty much route by serendipity, and don’t make too many advanced plans. We listen to our instincts, take opportunities as they present themselves and just trust we’ll end up where we’re meant to. It works awfully darn well for us. Our next stop, came precisely …

Exporing Burlington, Vermont – Post-Escapade

Just the two of us, post Escapade. The 56th Escapade wrapped up on Thursday afternoon, however the Champlain Valley Expo center offered attendees to stick around a couple extra days. Which we gladly paid the $25/night dry camping fee for the opportunity to not be rushed and a chance to explore the area a bit before moving on. While the expo center is located in Essex Junction, it’s …

A Day at the Beach: Gamble Rogers State Recreation Area – Flagler Beach, Florida

Ok well, maybe more accurately four days at the beach. My brother happened to be in the area with his plane, and snapped a shot of us from the air. We’ve crossed paths with the oceanfront campground at Gamble Rogers State Recreation area many times. We actually have stayed at other parks in the area, Tomoka and Faver Dykes, and very much enjoyed them. As we would pass by via A1A, I wasn’t quite sure if beachfront camping …

Friends & Vacation Preps in Clermont, FL: Lake Louisa State Park

With a week left to go until VACATION (not that we were excited or anything), we had one final stop planned before getting the bus ready to put in storage for a few weeks. And that was a visit to the Orlando area to catch up with some long time friends who live not too far from Disney. Final Central Florida stops. Lake Louisa State Park – Clermont, FL We&#…

Re-Charging at Hillsborough River State Park – Thonotosassa, FL

After a week of awesome family time in Spring Hill, and two back-to-back social dates with dear friends in the Tampa area  – we were ready for some serious re-charge time. With an upcoming vacation, we desired being some place where we could super focus on getting work projects caught up, and get some peace & quiet to…

Trials and Tribulations of Getting a Spot at Fort De Soto Park – Tierra Verde, FL

I’ve talked before about campgrounds that have a legendary feel to them due to how many in our RVing community have shared amazing things about their stays. Fort De Soto Park at the tip of an island chain in the Gulf of Mexico just south of St. Petersburg, Florida is one such park that has been on our bucket list for…

Family Time in Spring Hill, FL – Barrington Hills RV Resort

Our goal for getting to Florida on this time scale all started with wanting to meet up with Chris’ folks before they ended their snowbird season in Spring Hill. The time had finally come to put down the landing gear, stow our tray tables and put our seats in their upright positions (we did not however turn off our cellular devices) to make our final approach to our destination after a 6-week 2000 mile cross country repositioning. The final stretch from Santos Campground in the Ocala …

Eastward Bound: The Florida Panhandle During Spring Break

We love the Florida panhandle, and I had dreams of some time on the beach at one of the many fabulous state park campgrounds on our way across. Times in the past we’ve stayed at Grayton Beach and St. Andrews State Parks, and would have liked to check out some of the other coveted spots along the shore. But options for the time we’d be passing through were exactly… well.. nill.  Why? That thing we full timers often forget about &#…

Eastward Bound: Seminole Canyon State Park – Comstock, TX

Highway 90 – Lovely Drive! We don’t often think too far ahead in our routing, we prefer planning things a day at a time. On this particular repositioning, we know we need to keep ‘heading east’ and we’ll likely eventually make it to Florida. (You do start to learn these complex navigational things after so many …

Eastward Bound: A Visit to Davis Mountains State Park

Last we checked in, we had just left Arizona to start our eastward trek to Florida. We’ve done this cross country repositioning many times over the years, and are always looking for new-to-us routes across the great state of Texas. Beep beep! Fun roadside art at a Las Cruces rest stop. One place we’ve never been is Big Bend, and we really had it in our intentions to explore it this spring. However, with the book re-write taking longer than anticipated &#…

Boondocking Nirvana at Saddle Mountain BLM – Tonopah, AZ

We are blessed to have so many magical experiences in our lives on the road. It seems it’s one right after another sometimes. Amazing people, glorious views, wondrous experiences and great connectivity. It’s why we’re quickly sneaking up on 10 years on the road soon (10 Years?!?!) and still see no end in sight for us. One of our challenges is not growing …

On Hiatus: A Quick Thank You & FAQs

Ok, first of all, we know it sounds pretty silly to be making a post about being on hiatus, while on hiatus. I’m really not sure what to call what we’re doing right now. But we couldn’t just let all of the outpouring of support we’ve gotten over the past few days just sit there. We never ever imagined so many were reading along so closely, and the number of first time commenters is quite humbling (thank you for de-lurking.. each and…

Hot Water, Stillness & Friends – A Perfect Stay in Desert Hot Springs

It seems like it was last year when we arrived to Desert Hot Springs. Oh wait. It was! Blogger meet-up in Desert Hot Springs. We pulled in as neighbors to our buddies Nina & Paul of WheelingIt in early December, and we set down the landing gear for at least a couple of weeks. Our return was to…

Kicking the Year Off – Setting Intentions

Ahh.. new years. Opportunities to reset, start anew. Like most everyone else on the planet who recognizes this particular arbitrary date on this particular calendar, we too are looking ahead. We thought we’d share some of our intentions going forward in our travels, business life and personal life (including blogging). Some might call these resolutions, but that sounds way too formal for us. More Work, Less Play – More Play, Less Work We have not set a good track record with this whole work/life balance thing. In 2013, we intended to go into a bit…
