An RV-Sized Hobby

Life in a motorhome or tiny house puts your lifestyle on a smaller scale (obvious, I know). It can also decrease the size of your activities because the amount of "stuff" you have has been downsized. Living and traveling in a motorhome has been amazing for countless reasons. But part of me misses the perks... Continue Reading →

The Happiest Place on Earth

After our wonderful whale watching experience was over, there was still more fun to come for the rest of Anita's visit. On Sunday morning, we took the dogs for a hike around the grasslands. Then we went to a hockey game in Anaheim. It was my first-ever live hockey game. On Monday, her last full... Continue Reading →

An Amazing Ocean Adventure

With our friend Anita in town, we decided to take advantage of our chance to have a little extra fun. And one thing that I find exciting is going out on the ocean (no surprises there).

With temperatures hovering in the 80s,... Continue Reading →

When Wildlife is Your Passion

How do you know what you want to do with your life? Since I was a child, I have loved animals. My first real job was animal-related (PetSmart, Pet Care Manager, survived for 12 years). My favorite part of the job was working with and discussing the animals. I knew that my career, my life,... Continue Reading →

To the Top of the Mountain

We've been in California for two years, and nearly that long in Ramona. So, it was about darn time that we tackled the hike to the top of Iron Mountain. Iron Mountain is one of the most popular hikes in San Diego County — and it just so happens to be a mere five minute drive... Continue Reading →
