Three Ordinary Work Days

Today I’d like to share with you all the flip side of the coin, the side of full-time RVing as a person of working age that you don’t hear as much about. You read a lot about what my travel days are like, what my exploring days are like, but very seldom do I post […]

A Walk Around the Neighborhood

Training time has come to an end, the summer season officially starts tomorrow – Memorial day weekend. I was intending to have this blog post up yesterday, but there was a special NPS sponsored training program up at Mammoth, almost two hours away from Old Faithful with all the road construction going on, so I […]

Only Scratching the Surface

Yellowstone is big, very big. In my five days here so far, I’ve come to the tentative conclusion that as a visitor, you’d really want a good seven days or so to do this park justice. Some national parks you can catch the highlights in a day. Badlands was one, and even Zion you could […]

Road to Yellowstone

Tuesday, May 5 The weather is promising: mild temperatures, a cornflower blue sky adorned with wispy white clouds, a beautiful spring day. A good day for driving. By 10 am I’m rolling down my parent’s driveway, it’s a right turn from there to get to Yellowstone. The biggest journey starts with but a single step. […]

Pedernales Falls and Friends

Sunday, March 29 Originally, Julie and I were going to visit Pedernales Falls State Park on Thursday, but when I heard Cherie and Chris of Technomadia were going to be arriving there today, well, we quickly changed our plans. Their blog helped me a lot when I was preparing to hit the road, and we’d […]

Revolution Day

Hey everyone, this is a continuation of the story of ‘what came before Interstellar Orchard’ that started on Tuesday. You’ll want to read that first if you haven’t yet! February 20, 2010 Wake up before dawn. Get ready in a haze. Drive 40 minutes in the dark still half asleep. Trudge through eight and a […]

A Wish For Something More

September 5, 2009 My roommate and I stand in the campground at Hunting Island State Park, only a half-hour drive from our new apartment. We’ve just moved down to South Carolina from Wisconsin this summer, and are enjoying the change of scenery. My parents didn’t think I’d actually do it. I don’t think they get […]

Dreaming of Spring

Tuesday, March 3 Today is both a work day and a jogging day. In the morning, Julie and I head out to clean the Clevis Multrums – the back country composting toilets. The park has just acquired a brand new gator, only one and a half hours of run time on it. It’s green and […]
