I Hate Running

That title is a bit extreme. I dislike running. I like having run.

I’ve been running for years, on and off. I’ve completed several 5Ks. I get bored running longer than 5K, so that’s my limit.

But I need some form of exercise. I appreciate the simplicity of running, and it can work well with our travel lifestyle.

Recently I had a gap. I hadn’t been running in months. We were new to being...

Is a Rally of RV Families Worth Going To?

Attending a rally might just be what you need.

We attended our first RV family rally last week and lived to tell you about it.

Is There An App to Find Other Families?

Smartphones. Googlemaps. Location-detection in web browsers. Seems like there should be a technology-based solution to finding other traveling RV families? There have been. They have all failed. Here’s why.

Goats, Cattle, Sailors, Purses, Summer Plans

It’s been a winter for introverts and extroverts, with little in-between.

It’s a rainy, windy, stay indoors sort of day - so I thought I’d throw an update on the blog with details about how we’ve been filling our days in this new year.

Goats to Cattle

Just before the holidays we wrapped up our WWOOFing stay at the goat farm. It was a good six weeks and the girls both learned a lot....
