After attending my Dad’s retirement party in Washington DC, we returned to Tin E in Oklahoma City.  It was anticlimactic to be back in the trailer.  Trips to National Parks, the Pacific Northwest, Wyoming, Montana, Canada, California, Arizona and New Mexico were all in the rear view mirror.  While there are great spots back East, […]

Pretty Woman II

It’s hard to talk about San Diego without talking about the weather – it’s perfect.  We initially thought to spend 2-3 days here, but decided on 7.  Taking it easy, we continued to knock off the travel fatigue by way of pool time, Mexican food consumption, and workouts on the beach.  Switching it up a […]

Russians & Rednecks

Leaving Banff was hard.  You can spend a month there and touch very little of all the amazing trails, bodies of water, mountains and sights that the area has to offer.  With that said, we were excited to get Tin E back in the shop in Spokane, fix the water tank and finally enjoy the […]

The Return of the RVers

Houston to Las Vegas to Spokane.  When traveling for business, you probably wouldn’t be too excited about this route.  When traveling with squirmy wormy Lil D, this route includes one too many flights.  Imagine carrying something for over 6 hours that you can’t have touching the floor or leave the space of three airline seats.  […]

Home for now

For those of you who have been worried we fell into a geyser or into a den of Grizzlies, fear not – we’ve actually been back in MD.  When you (forcefully) have to sell a business, you unfortunately need to spend a lot of time with your attorneys.  Thus, we have been back East for […]

Young Spuds

Leaving Glacier was tough, but we were excited to visit a state none of us had ever been to – Idaho! Idaho looks like an upside down hatchet and we are in the little skinny handle part in the north. Interesting fact about this section is it’s in the Pacific time zone, whereas the rest […]

Our Superheroes 

Yesterday started off really well, we woke up and took the morning super slow at West Shore State Park where we had camped for the night. With that said, we take every morning slow. Traveling with kids and trying to get much done before 9am is a recipe for a full on war complete with […]

Easy Livin in Livingston, Missoula and Walmart

I can’t say we did much shopping at Walmart before this trip, but it is quickly becoming one of our most frequented stores.  I’m writing this post from the west-end of the Missoula Walmart. You’re only supposed to “camp” one night at a particular Walmart, but the boondocking and rv park options in Missoula weren’t […]

Payday

Up until our arrival in Jackson, WY, I’ve been questioning our decision to do this trip a decent bit. Like starting any new venture it takes awhile to settle into things and get comfortable with the new surroundings. Taking a long term trip with your young family, in close quarters, is no exception. Doubt for […]

Peaks and Valleys

After being on the road for a little over 3 weeks (and having a previous month long rv adventure) we feel somewhat qualified to talk honestly about what it’s like to travel across America with kids. Before becoming fired and free, D used to use an anology for what it’s like to be an entrepreneur […]

Mount Rushmore and the Border Blizzard 

We weren’t super excited to see Mount Rushmore, thinking it was a “manufactured” National Park.  We were wrong. Mount Rushmore was crazy cool and impressive.  The sculptor who pulled off the feat of putting presidential faces in granite deserves an award for tourism creation ingenuity.  North Dakota what are you waiting for!? Time for another […]

Sleeping in a Walmart Parking Lot

Little did we know before getting an RV, but at certain Walmarts you’re allowed to park there overnight and catch some Z’s. We put this to the test and stayed at a nice Walmart parking lot (as far as parking lots go) in the bustling town of Peru, IL on our way to Wisconsin. If […]

Cinco de Mayo in Ohio!

Having two great friends in Columbus, makes this our favorite midwestern city. Spent a lot of time catching up and trying to take care of “problems”. Oh yeah, our amazing beautiful Airstream doesn’t hold water in the fresh water tank. Disappointingly the Columbus area airstream dealer couldn’t fix the water problem but they were able […]
