Here are the ramblings of a family of four as we make our way across the country with our dog Lucky, a “Big Red” truck, and a trailer named “Ollie” that we stole from my parents.

After a final round of beignets, we rolled out of New Orleans on Tuesday around lunch and headed North. We travelled caravan style with our friends who had rented a nice car for the trip home and settled on our next stop – Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This would not have normally made the list of placesContinue reading ““Rooting Around” in Tennessee”
Long post coming, but even the PG-13 version of our New Orleans adventure is worth the read. When you see us in person, and after you sign a non-disclosure agreement, then we can share the unabridged version. We made the drive to New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday morning covering the nearly 500 miles before noonContinue reading “The Big Easy”
A little delayed in this posting but we have been adventuring and making sure there is plenty of content for the blog. We stayed at the Armadillo Ale Works Wednesday night, which doubles as a coffee house so the morning work and school sessions were made easier with some really good local coffee. This wasContinue reading “The Stars at Night…”
We woke on Sunday and enjoyed a leisurely morning that included a nice breakfast and some downtime. Eventually we made our way over to Carlsbad Caverns National Park to see what the park held. So far, we have covered a lot of land hiking and even some aquatic exploration on this trip, so it wasContinue reading “Everything is Bigger in Texas”
We managed a campsite late on Thursday night about 10 miles up a well-kept dirt road in the Dragoon Mountain range just outside of Tombstone, Arizona. The drive up wasn’t too bad, even in the dark and we found a secluded campsite that was recommended by a local. The place was perfect, and we hadContinue reading “I’m Your Huckleberry”
You know that feeling you have when you wake up in a place and you aren’t exactly sure where you are? We have gotten used to that feeling as we seem to wake in a new state more often than not. Honestly, I kind of like it since it is scratching an itch to exploreContinue reading “Finally, that Southwest Feel”
After a few days of chilling in San Francisco and Seaside we decided it was time to move on down the coast to Southern California. As it was a Sunday there was no real rush in the morning and we decided to spend our last few hours with our host, Emily. What better way toContinue reading “The Golden Coast”
We were up well before the sun again and squared away the morning school and work sessions before getting some errands completed. This included an ambitious project for me that included a trip to Autozone and some Youtube research. I decided to change the air filter for the truck but also decided to change outContinue reading “Sequoia Sunsets & California Beaches”
I have found that the weekday posts can be somewhat lacking for material. This is primarily due to the fact that we are pretty occupied from 5am to just past noon is occupied with the mundane activities that are associated with school and work. There is only so much I can say about our endlessContinue reading “Viva Las Vegas”
We left the Sand Dunes early on Saturday with hopes of making an old silver train in Durango at noon. We called ahead and they had seven seats on the train, but they let us know that trailer parking was going to be a problem. They gave us a spot to drop the trailer andContinue reading “The Wild West”
