One year ago today we were pouring liquid into the fog machine and spreading out the cobwebs on our retaining wall, hoping that we had enough candy for the hoards of kids sure to come our way. Our house made for the perfect haunted house and we made sure it looked amazing every year. This … More Happy Halloween!
We thought it might be fun for those of you who haven’t seen our RV yet to be able to take a virtual tour. This way, you can get a little idea of how we manage two adults, two dogs, two cats, a bird, and a fish in 300 square feet. This is our driving … More A Tour
I remember walking down the halls of my dormitory, carrying my towel and basket of toiletries, my shower sandals flip-flopping on the ground, passing hoards of girls on the way to the bathroom. I remember how weird it was the first time I had to shower there, pulling the curtain shut carefully so I didn’t … More Dorm Life 2.0
On our last day in Sioux Falls we took the dogs hiking around Falls Park. It was beautiful out and was the perfect day for a walk. We were fortunate enough to be able to enjoy the nice weather at our leisure. The dogs enjoyed some much needed exercise time and we enjoyed soaking up … More Nature is Pretty Neat
When you decide to live in an RV, one of the first things you have to do is downsize. We went from 1500 sq. ft. to 300 so we had to get rid of at least 1200 sq. ft. worth of stuff. Another consideration is the weight limit that RVs have; they call it “total … More Storage Wars: The Battle Between Humans and Their Possessions
Yesterday, while having a nice and relaxing movie day, we were awakened to our phones screaming about a weather alert. Being the rainy day that it was, we felt ok about not doing anything (but hey, we successfully organized our DVD collection, so that’s something). The screaming alert woke us from our naps with a … More Let’s Hope This Ark Floats
When we decided to venture out on this journey, we had a large family of animals living with us at the time. At one point we had: two cats, two dogs, a gecko, four fish tanks (including one with a turtle), two snakes, a rabbit, and two birds. We were a full house while we … More Meet the Family
We had a great day in Sioux Falls today. We went for a tour of McKennan Park, which was beautiful on this gorgeous fall day. We saw the “Pillars of the Nation” monument which has rocks that were collected by each state and sent to Sioux Falls for display to show our solidarity as a … More Steep Learning Curve
Our first stop was in Sioux Falls, SD. It took us a lot longer to get in last night than we imagined it would. I guess that’s what you get when you only drive 55mph. We decided that the best way to look at it was in terms of time vs. money. We have all … More You are now leaving Minnesota
And so it begins… Last October we came up with the idea of selling our house in St. Paul, quitting our jobs, buying an RV, and traveling the country. Today, just over a year later, we have said our goodbyes and set off on our grand adventure. It felt like this day would never actually … More Here we go!
