Airstream Updating

We rolled out of Georgia, through a bit of Alabama, and into the Florida panhandle. One of those places that we’ve always missed. In part, because we generally can’t stand Florida. But hey, we’re just passing through, we can give it another shot. Another swimming hole we couldn’t enjoy. Gators, … Read More

Devil Went Down To Georgia

Here’s the problem with Georgia—there are all these great State Parks with camping right on the lake, or on the river, and then there are the alligator signs. Oh, how I wish I could dismiss those signs. I mean, look at that water. Think of the hours of play my kids … Read More

Macon Halloween

It’s starting to feel like we’ve been in Georgia a long time. We just sort of bounce around from one state park to another, spending a couple days in each exploring what they have to offer. Lately there has been plenty of lakes to swim in. From the looks of them, … Read More

North Carolina Mountains

A cold snap hit, just for a couple of days, but enough to bust out the winter clothes and convince us it was just about time to get moving south. Max Patch is a bald mountaintop along the Appalachian Trail, and would no doubt be a wonderful place to spend … Read More

Carolina In My Mind

Driving around West Virginia we seemed to constantly get ourselves going on narrow roads with no sure sign that we were headed the right way or that they wouldn’t simply dead-end at some point. No big deal in a car, but when you’re pulling your house behind you, it suddenly … Read More

Back to Nature

Moving into a new home always takes us a few days. Day one we just load everything inside, and then Ali spends a couple days finding a place for everything. About day four she starts pointing out projects for me to do. And by day five we’ve got hooks hung, … Read More

Up in the Air… Airstream.

Long about the middle of our recent stay in New York we decided that renting places to stay in for a month at a time wasn’t going to work for us. We enjoyed visiting new places, but we didn’t enjoy the places we were living in. In New York our … Read More

Columbus Day

It’s been a hectic couple of weeks. We visited D.C. in a bit of a whirlwind, because Ali had to fly back to MN for a few days to take care of some family stuff. I spent that time hunkered down to do some other work. Then our latest foray … Read More

Touring D.C.

There aren’t many things more cool to a five-year-old boy than a truck that turns into a boat. After a couple days of museums, he earned it. We toured the Natural History museum, the Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Spy Museum, The U.S. Capitol, the … Read More

Washington, D.C.

D.C. is kind of like New York for us, in the respect that it is chock full of things that we’ve seen our entire lives, but never in person. It’s nice to finally see these places with our own eyes. Washington is an exhausting place to see on foot. It’s 2 … Read More

Lucy the Elephant

We had a few quiet days in Ocean City on the Jersey Shore. Clouds rolled through, the boardwalk more or less closed up, and restaurants in town were nonexistent. After the hectic pace in New York, this was just about right. Then the sun came back out. “Yeah, yeah, beach, … Read More

Ocean City

Ocean City. Do you know how many towns are named Ocean City? I don’t either, but I’ll bet it’s a bunch. We’re in the one in Jersey, for a bit. Our friend, Charlotte, whipped these drapes up for us right before we left. Makes leaving the back of the truck … Read More
