Hipcamp Craziness

It saddens me that one of the first post for this summer’s trip is going to be a sad one. But, unfortunately, that is the way it is sometimes with this way of life. Can’t all be sunshine and Kumbayas. We have had many days of point A to point B travel. We’ve stayed at… Continue reading Hipcamp Craziness

Time for a Change

Finally figured it out. It was time for a change. I have changed the name of our site domain. Although 2bikes1boat.com served us well for many years, it’s just not as relevant anymore. Yes, we still have 2 bikes, however, we just don’t get to use them as often as we used to. We do… Continue reading Time for a Change

Rainy Day blues

Boy will be doing online classes again this year, so he will need the extra connectivity. In addition to the booster,, he also… Continue reading PLAN (PREP) PRAY

(Plan) Prep Pray

Planning for a normal camping trip can be daunting. Planning for a two month adventure is beyond intimidating. So many things to do. Months before a trip, Capt’n Jim will haul out the navigational charts (Google Earth and Allstays) and plan our destination. This takes hours and days, months even, of careful contemplation. Virtual field… Continue reading (Plan) Prep Pray

Wanderlust

Wanderlust settles in me like a too tight favorite jacket.  I’m excited about wearing it, but it pinches all the same.  School wraps up this week and the countdown begins.  With that comes intense anxiety.   Can I get everything done in time?  What will I forget?  I’m adding to and amending my packing list constantly. … Continue reading Wanderlust
