An Ode To RVing Diversity: Some like the comfort of big rigs, some like the agility of small rigs. Some are in motion all year long, some are stationary all year long. Some enjoy the boonies and being off-grid, and some enjoy resorts with all the amenities. Some RV for a reason. Some RV because […]
Hey everyone, this is the conclusion of the story of ‘what came before Interstellar Orchard’ that started last Tuesday. The first part is here, and the second part is here. You’ll want to read those first if you haven’t yet! December 17, 2010 The past four months since Revolution Day have been full of ups […]
Sunday was my birthday, woohoo! As you may have guessed from my last post, I’m more for quiet and simple celebrations so there was no big party. But I did have a good week. On Thursday Julie and I went out and saw a movie in Kerrville – Jupiter Ascending. It had a decent plot […]
Tomorrow, America celebrates thankfulness. Before I started traveling, I would take a little time on Thanksgiving to celebrate everything I had. Now, I like to practice thankfulness regularly, because I’ve discovered it leads to a happier life. There will always be another mountain to conquer, milestone to reach, dream to make into reality, but never […]
Never get so busy making a living that you forget to have a life.
Tuesday, October 7 (continued) After the lake visit, I hook up and it’s back on the road.

For me, it’s the epitome of the camping and vacation experience. Much of the fondness for them likely stems from my childhood. I have very good memories of family camping […]
A full moon hangs low in the west, playing through wisps of cloud left over from the rain earlier in the night. In front of the truck, huge black sentinels jut up into the heavens, indistinct and back lit. The truck rounds a bend, and the here the sentinels jump into detail where the moonlight […]
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 […]
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 […]
