I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on the first round of videos going live on the 14th, so enjoy some photos from my summer in Wisconsin. Have a good week, and see you all on Thursday for the big reveal! It’s good to share:

Peninsula State Park, WI

August 21, Monday For having grown up here, there’s a ridiculous amount of Wisconsin I’ve never seen. Case in point: Door County. Door County is the ‘thumb’ of Wisconsin that juts out into Lake Michigan. It’s touristy in a small town way with a lot of vineyards and stores selling premium jams and cheese out […]

Sea Hunter II is on the left, Voyager II on the right (we ride on both on this trip). The man in the black hoodie is one of the Ferry Guys.

Now With More Ferry Rides

July 21, Friday By about noon, my best friend Julie and I have loaded all of the backpacking gear into her car and are leaving Madison, WI for Grand Portage, MN. With stops for gas and food, it’ll take us about nine hours to get to our hotel. It rains for the first couple hours […]

International Trip Prep

After the Minocqua trip with my parents last week, I got into Bertha and drove two hours south on Friday to Madison, WI, where I went to college. Saturday morning I ran (well, jogged really – I’m not a runner) a 5k fun run with my best friend Julie, and I’m staying with her until […]

Trip to the Northwoods

June 20, Tuesday At 10 am this morning, my parents and I pile into their van and drive two hours north on 51 to Minocqua, WI. We depart Rapids in the rain, a soaking kind of rain that threatens to last all day. But while the band is wide it’s not all that long, and […]

Small Town Fun and Upcoming Adventures

As a benefit of visiting someone with a house, I currently have access to a heavy duty vacuum cleaner, something that would be very impractical for me to carry around in my little RV. On Tuesday the 13th I do a thorough dusting and cleaning, using long attachments on the vacuum to get the carpet […]

On the Lake

There’s nothing like a change in scenery to break a person out of their routine and allow new ideas to flow. This is probably one of my favorite things about traveling full-time, I never get caught in a rut of going through the motions without really paying attention and living. There are always new things […]

East to Wisconsin

My days at Buffalo Gap National Grassland continue to delight. I take walks along the rim and soak in the sights and sounds. There are a lot of birds out here, it’s unusual not to hear their calls. One in particular likes to perch on the sign near camp and will sing a majority of […]

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. […]

The Less Glamorous Side of RVing

In one week I’ll be leaving Wisconsin and heading out to Yellowstone! Some tasks are hard to do or frowned upon while in an RV park, so instead of doing a lot of sight-seeing or day trips during my time parked in my parent’s driveway, I’ve been pretty busy making good use of this time […]

Camp-Inn Teardrop Factory Tour

Last month, while Julie and I were volunteering in Enchanted Rock State Natural Area in TX, a couple pulled into the park with the neatest teardrop trailer I’d ever seen. It was aluminum skinned like an Airstream, had panoramic windows in front and old-fashioned white-wall tires and fancy curved fenders. I pulled the golf cart […]

Visiting Family

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 […]
