Ugh, and having held out for so long against the steady barrage of colds that I’ve been exposed to this season, I have finally fallen sick. There will be no long and thought provoking piece for your reading pleasure today I’m afraid, but I couldn’t just leave you guys hanging in the wind, so how about this:
Four places I’ve traveled to in the U.S. That I really like (in no particular order):
Glacier National Park (Montana/Canada)
My family took a road trip out West when I was 15, and this was one of our destinations. Even back then I was impressed by the view on Going to the Sun road. This was also the first and last time I did a horse riding tour, more expensive and restricting than I would pay for myself now, but the countryside the trail went through was so beautiful.
Smoky Mountains National Park (Tennessee)
I finally got to go here this past September for a quick weekend of camping (this is where the picture in the post is from). There was a lot of hiking around to be done in my new fancy shoes, and yes, I got to see a black bear. Once I have my RV, I definitely plan to come back for a longer stay.
Badlands (South Dakota)
Another stop on our out West trip. I was definitely a tomboy when I was younger and loved getting to search around for fossils.
Clear Lake (near Minocqua, WI)
The state park and campground where my parents took me tent camping when I was growing up. The lake is aptly named, you could see the bottom up to 30 feet deep. Not a great place for fishing, but a lot of fun for snorkeling.
And now I’m going to make good use of the first sick day I’ve taken in over three years and get some rest. Whether you’re RVing yet or not, do you have a favorite place or destination you’d like to share?

Yellowstone is big, very big. In my five days here so far, I’ve come to the tentative conclusion that as a visitor, you’d really want a good seven days or so to do this park justice. Some national parks you can catch the highlights in a day. Badlands was one, and even Zion you could…Read More
Yesterday’s unexpected overtime has left me with less time that I planned on having to get Cas ready to roll on Saturday. It’s an interesting logistical equation. I’m not going to be living in Cas for the 2-ish weeks I’m up in Wisconsin, due to the climate. This means I needed to get Cas winterized,…Read More
On the morning of the 28th I’m on the road by noon, having said goodbye to the good folks of Little House Customs. The next few days are driving days with no stops other than overnights. I’m on a mission and nothing will derail me: ringing in 2014 on the shores of the Atlantic with…Read More
