Take Time to Smell the Roses

Then take time to process the pictures! Our summers are so precious to us, filled with wandering, wonder, resting and lots of love. I see so much during these times and strive to capture as many memories as possible. I see the new world through my husband’s sense of excitement, my son’s careful considerations and… Continue reading Take Time to Smell the Roses

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

Chennault Aviation and Military Museum

Stayed overnight at a really cool Harvest Host. Chennault Aviation and Military Museum. Took tour this morning. The docents were amazing and so passionate. Kaye and Roy were so kind and really knew their subjects. And, yes, Kaye you made me tear up a little. You watch a short video that makes you understand what… Continue reading Chennault Aviation and Military Museum

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

Sadler State Park South Carolina June 4th 2017

Sadler State Park turned out to be quite a gem, 395 Acres of beautiful forests on a peninsula of Lake Hartwell (56,000 acres).  We stayed on Loop #1, site # 1, a pull through that abutts up to the water. After quickly setting up, little man and I took a walk down to the beach… Continue reading Sadler State Park South Carolina June 4th 2017

Boondocking and Internet

Current Temperature:  57 degrees Current Location: Ellsworth, Maine Current Campground: Seawall Campground Acadia National Park I will keep this short as we are sitting in a Laundromat waiting for clothes to dry.  One of the problems with camping, especially boondocking, is the lack of internet opportunities.  No, we do not have a hotspot.  If we… Continue reading Boondocking and Internet

Quick note:

Due to data limitations my blogs for the past 2 days will come later.   However, I did want to note for any boondockers out there that the Walmart in Cromwell, CT (i84?) is RV friendly.   We arrived approximately 9:00 last night and as a courtesy called to ask if okay to stay.   At the point… Continue reading Quick note:

Boondocking Reality #1

One must have water!   Part of boondocking (which is cheaper than upscale campgrounds) is giving up electricity and water.   Fortunately our campsite is near a water faucet. Jim came up with a clever way to funnel the water into the water inlet of the camper.  Jim figures that he carried 108 pounds of water on… Continue reading Boondocking Reality #1
