Tuesday, July 28 All day at work customers are coming in bundled up and the mood is subdued. A cold front swept through Yellowstone yesterday and even in the afternoon the temp is only grudgingly pushing 50 degrees on the thermometer. Sluggish clouds hide the sun, and people spend more time in the buildings at […]
About BeckyForget about what the world tells you your life should be like. At IO I teach people how to ditch the status quo and go full-time RVing before retirement. Included at no additional charge: seizing your dreams, living boldly, and making a difference.
As I was perusing my photo albums yesterday I realized that in many places I’ve camped, I had a picture with a black frame around it: a photo taken from inside Cas looking out. I made a sort of mini-album of these pictures and others with one big rule in mind, the picture had to […]
Friday, July 24 Today starts at the end. Well, let me refine that. The end of the hike. Jayne and I are doing Mount Washburn today, a famous Yellowstone hike that typically starts at Dunraven Pass, about five miles north of Canyon Village Junction at 8,859 feet. From the parking lot at the top of […]
I’m not a material girl, as I’m sure you’ve all deduced by now. I don’t need a lot of stuff to be happy and when it comes to clothes I’m more about what’s comfortable than what’s stylish. But every now and then I get the desire to dress up, either for special events or because […]
Thursday, July 16 After two months of living in Yellowstone, I finally make it into Grand Teton National Park. I have no excuse for not coming earlier, since if you head out the south entrance of Yellowstone you hit the edge of it almost immediately after a small chunk of national forest land. It’s an […]
Thursday, July 9 Three coworkers and I roll on up the road through a morning fog. Because of the hour, the traffic hasn’t gotten bad yet and we make good time, heading north from Old Faithful to Madison, northeast from Madison to Norris, east from Norris to Canyon, and then north from Canyon over Dunraven […]
Lately there’s been a lot of comments and e-mails from new readers who are just starting to look into the RVing lifestyle (welcome!). Back in March I wrote a guest post for another blog (CheapRVLiving), and it occurs to me I’ve never shared that content with all of you here at IO. I thought it […]
I arrive back to Cas Friday afternoon utterly exhausted, but deeply satisfied. My class at the Institute exceeded expectations, but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me explain the program a little more. As everyone who’s been following me this summer already knows, I’m working as a sales associate for the Yellowstone Association (YA). The […]
This post was written on Tuesday, as while you’re reading this I’m on day two of a three day class at the Yellowstone Association Institute in Lamar Valley. There is no cell reception, TV, or even electrical outlets at the rustic cabin I’m staying in so I am quite thoroughly out of touch. It’s one […]
For three years living in Cas I relied solely on public WiFi and mooching off of friends for getting online, a pretty impressive achievement considering how much I use the internet – for updating this blog, responding to comments and e-mails, keeping up with Facebook Twitter, and other bloggers, and doing travel research. It was […]
