Where We Decided to Live!!!

I can't believe it's already been 19 months since we originally set out on our journey back in June 2014! Thank you for following along with us this entire time and enduring my delayed blogging! In my last blog post, I mentioned that when we finished our initial road trip through all 48 contiguous states,… Continue reading Where We Decided to Live!!!

Back on the Road!

After accomplishing our goal of traveling through all 48 contiguous states, we returned to California, coming full circle with our journey.  We spent 4 months in Temecula, CA (from December 2014 to April 2015), contemplating life and where to live, what to do for work/income, and basically where to go from there. We stayed at… Continue reading Back on the Road!

Shaving My Head!!!

A year ago, I did something rather drastic.  I shaved my head! Before our road trip, my hair was long (almost down to my waist), and I had a lot of it.  The thought of washing my hair with just 6 gallons of water in a tiny shower and then blow-drying it in an equally… Continue reading Shaving My Head!!!

Day 190 (12/7/14): Elk City, OK | Amarillo, TX | Albuquerque, NM When we rolled out of bed this morning and began preparing to leave, it was still dark out.

Days 184-185: Louisiana (New Orleans!!!)

Day 184 (12/1/14): New Orleans, LA Today is the 6-month anniversary of our trip! And what better place to be celebrating at than New Orleans?! We got an early start to the day and revisited the French Quarter. The streets were eerily quiet in the morning, a stark contrast from the lively night before.  For… Continue reading Days 184-185: Louisiana (New Orleans!!!)

Days 182-183: Florida, Alabama, Mississippi & Louisiana

Day 182 (11/29/14): Pensacola Beach, FL For our final day in the Pensacola area, we didn’t venture too far from our campground in Pensacola Beach, FL.

Days 180-181: more Florida

Day 180 (11/27/14): Orlando, FL | Pensacola, FL | Gulf Breeze, FL If our trailer hadn’t developed a colossal leak, we would have been done traveling by now.

Days 159-176 (11/6/14-11/23/14): Hilton Head Island, SC At this point, we had visited as many places in Florida as we could before we would be working our way back towards the West Coast.
