Saturday, October 4 With departure from Zion and a return to the open road imminent tomorrow morning, time for updates is limited tonight, but I’ll do what I can. Well really, there should have been plenty enough time to prep for travel and update the blog, but Julie and I got a bit distracted. We [...]
Last Saturday the 27th, the park closed down for the second time in three weeks due to flooding. It rained somewhere in the neighborhood of two inches that day, which is a huge deal for a desert. Again, the Trading Post flooded and the mop had to be kept handy all day for repeated clean [...]
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 [...]
It’s now been over four weeks since I crossed a line that put me in the desert. The last time I visited a desert, it was for only a week at spring break, and I was 14. This is the first time I’ve spent any considerable amount of time in one. It’s another check off [...]
Monday, July 14 Today’s mission: Bryce Canyon National Park, located 73 miles from Zion. I make a sandwich, gather up snacks and my water bottle, and hit the road. The drive is very scenic. Route 9 meets highway 89 and there you turn north towards Bryce climbing through the White Cliffs of the Colorado Pleateau. [...]
After three days of working at Trading Post (pictured) I finally get to go inside Zion, although it teases me from the bluff overlooking the campground on a daily basis. On my first day I took a quick hike up this bluff and get a shot of park of the campground from above, and also [...]
Last week was for relaxation and reconnecting with family. After festival last weekend, I drove the short 20 minutes to the Atlanta Airport where I reluctantly left Bertha to the mercies of long term parking and hopped a plane to Minneapolis, MN. No really, it was as easy as that, I’ve never had a flight [...]
Despite what it might seem, my time here in Fairburn hasn’t been all job applications and festival merriment. I have managed to sneak away a time or two around preparing for the next adventure to further explore the Atlanta area. If you should happen to visit, here are two things I might recommend. Last week [...]
This week I have sent in five applications to various National Park concessionaires as temperatures start climbing into the 90’s and humidity levels inside the RV hit 70%. June 8th and the end of the renaissance festival is coming up fast. I’m positively giddy. You see, to me working these kinds of jobs hardly feels [...]
Ka-boom! Thunder rattles the Casita and I am wide awake, it’s 4 am. A thin line of strong storms pushed through yesterday evening as night was falling, a hint of things to come. Julie and I were hanging out with some of our fellow rennies and we all joked around, wondering if Student Day would [...]
