Cabot’s Pueblo Museum – Part I

In the last blog post I shared a couple pictures of Cabot’s Pueblo Museum in Desert Hot Springs, an incredible place that happened to be just 10 minutes away from our RV park. I’m kind of obsessed, and went back more than once to take the excellent guided tour, and a lot of photos. The…

Desert Living

  We’ve had an unusually social few weeks in San Diego and Palm Springs, with family and friends in town from the East Coast and local friends visiting the area. It’s been wonderful to spend time with everyone, and good for all of us to have so much social interaction. Especially for Chris and me….

San Diego Has a Beach?

  Jan 27 – We’ve been staying in San Diego County since January 1st but hadn’t been into the city yet. I had to tell Rita and Charlie that San Diego is on the ocean, and we will get to go to the beach! The main reason we’ve been holding off is to wait until…

Falling in Love with an Unlikely Place

Just a few weeks into our full time travel adventures, before starting this blog, we found ourselves in the town of Likely in the northeastern most county of California. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and it was wonderful. Read about our experience and see more photos of this underexplored corner of…

The Joys of Reading

January 11, 2017 – I had to leave behind daily hot pool soaks to get motivated to write my next post. We’ve enjoyed the relaxed pace of staying put for a month at a time, first in Desert Hot Springs and now at Santee Lakes outside San Diego. The campground is part of a state…

Exploring Family History

  December 14 – We are settled in Desert Hot Springs, CA for one month (with a little side trip to Santa Cruz). After traveling around so much since August, never spending more than a week at a place, more often 3 or 4 days, it feels good to stay put for a little while….

Back Where it Began

  October 28 – We’re back at Flying Flags RV Resort in California’s Santa Ynez Valley, the first RV park we stayed at when we started this adventure in August.   It feels good to be at a familiar place, and get to enjoy the great pool and playground and dog park (and laundry room!)…

Distance = (Rate x Time) – Mental Fatigue

Chris here. Creating this blog was Michelle’s idea and she has done such a nice job capturing the spirit of our travel so far. I thought it might be an interesting change of pace to share a series of logistics info and some of what we’ve learned from being on the road full time in our…

California Coast to Gold Country

Oct 9 – After Eureka, we drove further down the coast to Fort Bragg in Mendocino County, where we stayed at the Sportsman’s RV Park, one of the most memorable so far.  It was small, only a few sites, but with a unique location on the docks of Noyo Harbor, close to where the Noyo…

The Lost Coast

Oct 3 – At first this post was going to be about our few days in Crescent City, back in California again.  Our campsite was right on a beach at the harbor, where the kids and dogs ran around and explored; we got to go up to the top of a lighthouse; we took a…
