Giving Thanks From Minnesota

As I sit here, looking across the slowly freezing lake to the leafless trees along the other side, I think about what I am thankful for from the past year. I am thankful for the wonderful friends and family who have supported us on our crazy journey.   Many of you have stuck with us…

Sending Prayers to California

It is 26 degrees outside as I write this. As I huddled in my motorhome yesterday morning, Andy asked me, “Did you go for a run today?” “Are you crazy? It’s 5 degrees outside this morning. I did yoga,” I said with an eye roll. As I griped about the cold weather, thinking about the…

Taking in Northern Minnesota

With fall truly settling in, it was high time for a trip up North. So, we packed up the Forester and my dad’s truck on Friday and headed up to Menahga for the weekend last weekend. Saturday was deer hunting opener, so my dad and Andy were preparing for the big day. The house in…

A Minnesota Autumn

The Wandering Dolphin crew has been busy adjusting back to Minnesota temperatures. But we’ve been having fun in the process of welcoming autumn. Since the location of our motorhome was unlikely to receive trick-or-treaters, we stopped by my parents’ house for an evening of Halloween fun. Hocus Pocus, pumpkin carving, Halloween decorations, and delicious food…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday from the Wandering Dolphin crew! Between work, prepping for Halloween, and celebrating with friends, it has been a busy month! More updates coming soon…

Motorhome Travel: Reminiscing Over Three Years

Three years ago today, we were pulling our motorhome out of the driveway of my parents’ house. We stopped by the gas station to fill up our propane and gas tanks before heading off on what would become one of our most amazing adventures. We had quit our jobs, said farewell to friends and family,…

It’s a Motorhome Thing

“Did the toilet work alright for you?” Andy asks from the bathroom. I can hear him messing with something in there. “Yes,” I call out, having just come from there maybe 30 seconds before. “Well, it’s not working now.” When he went to flush the toilet, the pedal fell straight to the ground. Water still…

A Rainy Season in the Midwest

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow That seems like pretty sound advice considering we can’t do much about the rain! It is still beautiful, and the sound of rain on the roof of the motorhome is relaxing in a way that only rain…

Living, Loving, and Losing

A lot has happened since I last wrote. It seems easiest to start from the beginning. At the end of September, we took a trip to the cabin for the weekend. Andy and I wanted to get away for a bit and celebrate our wedding anniversary early. So, we packed up the Subaru and headed…

Minnesota Nature Tour By Water

When we were traveling the country and living in California, I felt like I was constantly taking pictures of the awesome nature surrounding us. And the other day, I realized how much I missed that. Just because our Wandering Dolphin is stationary right now, and we’ve lived in this state for practically our entire lives,…
