What’s the Plan?

Recently, we've had several people ask us, "What is your plan?", or "Where are you going next?", or "Do you have an itinerary figured out?" It's such a straightforward, simple question. Why is it so difficult for me to answer? (long sigh) The short answer is, no. I sure wish we did though! We have … Continue reading What’s the Plan?

Bend, Oregon – Spring Visit

On our first visit to Bend, we had an eye exam scheduled for S at Elemental Eyecare. I mentioned in a previous post, that making medical appointments is difficult when we are living a nomadic lifestyle (see How you doin’? - After 4 Months of RV Living). I called several eye doctors in Bend, and … Continue reading Bend, Oregon – Spring Visit

Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Deschutes National Forest, Oregon

As part of B's 5th birthday celebration, we visited Newberry National Volcanic Monument in Deschutes National Forest, Oregon. *Fun fact: Deschutes means "falls" in French. Like Fancy Nancy says, everything is fancier in French! B says, "I'm the guard of my birthday and we're not doing school or taking showers and daddy's not working on … Continue reading Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Deschutes National Forest, Oregon

Bend-Sunriver RV Campground, Oregon

Today we are leaving Bend-Sunriver RV Campground and headed East. Lake Siskiyou is a tough act to follow. There are no sewer hookups here. That's bad. We shortened our stay from 3 weeks to one because it's just too inconvenient for us. Kudos to everyone who boondocks! We packed in some fun activities and hikes … Continue reading Bend-Sunriver RV Campground, Oregon

Roadschooling: Homeschool on the Road in Our RV

Today, I'm excited to tell you about some of the curricula we are using for our homeschool turned RV-school. I'm not being paid or compensated for these recommendations. I just want to share what seems to be working well for us, in case you want to check it out. *If you aren't homeschooling I hope … Continue reading Roadschooling: Homeschool on the Road in Our RV

The City of Mount Shasta, California – Spring Visit

A few days ago, while we were "glamping" at Lake Siskiyou we went out to breakfast at "Yaks Koffee & Eatery", in The City of Mount Shasta, California. It was good food. Really, really good! Inside, none of the furniture matched but somehow it all "worked" together to create an instantly welcoming atmosphere. All of … Continue reading The City of Mount Shasta, California – Spring Visit

Lake Siskiyou, California

Happy Mother's Day everyone! For the past few months the kiddos have been begging us to take them camping. Hmmm... camping... Camping!?! Wait just a minute now. Don't we live in an RV traveling between campgrounds? Are you kidding me!?! Aren't we camping right now? Apparently, the full-time RV lifestyle doesn't count as camping. Apparently, … Continue reading Lake Siskiyou, California

“The Life-Changing Magic of Losing Our Stuff” or “Six Months After the Camp Fire”

I'm going to qualify this post with the fact that we didn't lose "everything". We have friends who literally lost Everything. I know we are very lucky because the kids and I were able to grab a few things when evacuated from the Camp Fire: A pre-packed emergency bag with toothbrushes, one change of underwear … Continue reading “The Life-Changing Magic of Losing Our Stuff” or “Six Months After the Camp Fire”

Joshua Tree National Park

We visited Joshua Tree National Park 3 times in February & March while we were staying at Sam's Family Spa in Desert Hot Springs, CA. Do you know how Joshua trees got their name? I didn't. My google-research indicated that the name came from a group of Mormons who thought that the unique trees looked … Continue reading Joshua Tree National Park

Onwards and Northwards – San Benito RV Resort

We're leaving San Benito RV and Camping Resort today and headed North again. We were spoiled by Sam's Family Spa in Desert Hot Springs so this campground had some big cons for me. The laundry facility was almost 1/2 mile from our site. Too far to lug bags of laundry, so we had to drive … Continue reading Onwards and Northwards – San Benito RV Resort
