We made it to Alaska. The Alaska trekker has a bible called The Milepost. It is a guidebook that outlines mile-by-mile the routes through and around the most northern reaches of North America. Some things to note about The Milepost:
With any luck we will see the salt flats and that great big salty lake in the north part of Utah in the coming weeks. But for now, here are some pretty pictures of one of the Beehive State’s hidden gems: Goblin Valley.
Miracle loves New Orleans and was elated to get back to one of her favorite places to wine and dine. Fortunately, we had a driveway stay in the city, making it both convenient and affordable to stay within the city. We did eat at a couple of restaurants and grabbed some beignets to make sureContinue reading “Louisiana in review”
It feels like we have been in Mississippi for a long time. Perhaps it is because the weather changed so drastically over the past week that it feels like we must have crossed several biomes. But here are some observations I’ve made:

And indeed the beach looked fun… except we had our dog, Jolene, who was not welcome on the beach. Or on most any other beachContinue reading “Assateague Island, Delaware”
If you’ve owned a Vw Bus for any length of time, you’ve probably got a tale of roadside breakdown woes. We met a woman, Lynda Hardman, who had more than her fair share. In fact, she swears her bus had a curse. She’s seen everything from flaming stoves to the crunchy demise of her not-so-beloved ASIContinue reading “Podcast: Lynda”
Our dog, Jolene, goes everywhere we go. She’s a rescue and still a bit skittish, so we don’t like to leave her and we don’t know exactly what will spook her (although the list now includes butterflies, gravel, and chipmunks). More than once, she has bolted out of the van before we could grab holdContinue reading “Retractable dog run”
