Watchman Trail

Monday, August 25 I’d like to go hiking today, but I’m just not feeling ambitious enough to drive anywhere. Luckily, I live at a national park, and good hiking with amazing views can be found right here with next to no effort. My first stop is to park at the visitor’s center and walk down [...]

Something Old, Something New

For today’s new blog post I present you with… a bunch of old blog posts! Okay, let me explain. It’s come to my attention that I have now been blogging for closing in on three years(!), and I regularly get e-mails and comments from newer members of the IO community asking questions I’ve addressed in [...]

The North Rim

  Monday, August 18 I’m excited! It’s time to cross half of the last big local destination off my list: the Grand Canyon. It’s a 107 mile drive from the campground to the north rim, the south rim is even further and one has to detour far to the east to make it around, making [...]

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, UT

  Thursday, August 14 I stayed up much too late last night reading and overslept this morning, oops? But hey, it’s a day off and I’ve got no place I need to be, it’s nice to sleep in on occasion. It’s mostly cloudy out and temperatures are holding in the 70′s with little to no [...]

A New Resource

I’d like to start out this post with a shout out to Russ and June, and Debbie, members of the IO community here, and the couple traveling in the Casita (if you gave me your names, I’ve forgotten them, sorry) who while not devout blog readers still knew who I was. These folks have all [...]

Cleaning Day

A little humor for your midweek. I present to you: Cleaning, a drama. Day 1: “Hmm, it’s starting to look kinda bad in here.” Day 2: “When’s the last time I did anything more than sweep the floor? Before I got to Utah.” Day 3: “Ugh, I hate cleaning. Well, maybe tomorrow.” Day 4: “Now [...]

One Bad Day

Yesterday was one of those days. You know, days where things just don’t go right. Yes, it’s true that even after the happily ever after of achieving the big dream of life on the road, those days still happen. I left bright and early from Zion, zigging my way north on 89 and then east [...]

Lake Powell, UT

I’m over at the Trading Post typing away on e-mails and RVillage messages bright and early in the morning when click, out goes the power. Lightning damaged something somewhere, and it’s going to take an estimated two hours to get it back online. Well, there’s no point hanging around here any longer. Supplies for a [...]

Interviews

On Thursday two interviews I did at other sites went live, so today I thought I’d share those with you. The first was featured on Do It Yourself RV, and it asked ten full-timers the question: If you could change one thing about your full-time lifestyle, what would it be? To see my response and [...]

Cedar Breaks National Monument, UT

Monday, July 21 Today’s goal wasn’t actually to visit somewhere awesome, it was to take my laptop in to get fixed. So let me say now that I love Utah, where “taking the long way home” after a mundane run to the city can so easily encompass awe inspiring scenery. Instead of turning back south [...]
