Summer in the Badlands

March 31, 2013 | 42

So it’s official, I’ll be working at Cedar Pass Lodge in the Badlands starting on April 22nd, and will be there through early-mid October. I’m excited! Original plans were to stay east of the Mississippi this year and do the Carolina Renaissance Festival with Julie in the fall, but after a couple weeks of job…

Savannah, GA

March 5, 2013 | 11

Since I came back down to the southeast in January there hasn’t been much time for sightseeing and getting to act like a traveling RVer. My days have been filled with work, looking for better paying work, keeping the blog updated, keeping up on e-mail, forums, other blogs, and the weekly girl’s night with friends.…

Warmer Climes

January 15, 2013 | 10

A goodly amount of fun was had during my 16 days in Wisconsin. After a two night pit stop in Madison for sledding and other shenanigans, it was on to my parents house in Rapids to spend Christmas with the family. The granite outcroppings pictured here are located in Powers Bluff County Park, located near…

Holiday Update

December 27, 2012 | 20

I hope everyone had a good holiday, I know I am! The trip up to Wisconsin was uneventful. Google thought it should take 9 hours and 48 minutes to drive the 640ish miles from Coffeyville to Madison, so I figured it’d be 12 hours pulling the RV since I go a maximum of 60 mph,…

Caroling Through the Snow

December 20, 2012 | 22

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,…

The Places You’ll Go

December 17, 2012 | 18

It looks as though 8th shift won’t be having overtime this week and my last day will be Friday night, meaning I’ll be leaving Coffeyville once I wake up on Saturday. This gives me more time to make it to Wisconsin before Christmas, woohoo! But since I had overtime this past Saturday, that only left…

Music For The Road

November 8, 2012 | 45

Whenever I get a post comment from someone who links to their blog using CommentLuv I make a point of peeking at it, I’m nosy like that. Last time I updated, it was Tricia over at Geeky Explorers who commented and unknowingly subjected her site to my prying eyes. One of the first things that stood…

Now With More Video

October 17, 2012 | 10

So I’ve been recording little bits of video since I took off last month, and now the first set is available for your viewing pleasure! I can write and write about how my first days on the road went, but some things are best experienced first hand. Now you can be a passenger and watch…

Winding Down from Travel Mode

October 6, 2012 | 20

9/29/12 – Saturday Today’s hike was called Devil’s Kitchen, named for the interesting rock formations that can be seen from the trail. There are three distinct layers of rock that make up the cliffs of the Ozarks area. Dolomite is the bottom layer, it’s more impervious to rain. Above that is a thin layer of…

Roaring River State Park, MO

October 4, 2012 | 16

09/26/12 – Wednesday Well, I did have one leak this morning, discovered at 4:30 am when the thunder woke me up. It’s the missing microwave rivet again, the gray putty that the previous owner had put around the screw on the top cracked to the point where water could get underneath it. At least it…

3 Lessons from Driving 1,228 Miles in 3 Days

September 30, 2012 | 18

There is a lot of discussion in the full-time RVing community over what the optimal pace to travel at is. How much time on the road versus how much time parked in one spot. How much driving to do on any given day, and what the best time to arrive at your destination is. Often,…

Harry S. Truman State Park, MO

September 25, 2012 | 15

The journey South on Saturday continues until I find myself nearing Kansas City again, to avoid running smack dab into it a merge East onto I-70 is in order. Consulting my laptop back in St. Joseph earlier in the day I have discovered that Harry S. Truman park isn’t far from Kansas City, and it’s…
