On The Road Again

15. September 2008


So we eventually we had to leave Glacier National Park. A reader of our blog had suggested that we travel to Bozeman hot spring and Butte. I was pretty psyched about taking the advice of a complete stranger, and I was surprised that CM seemed to be going for it as well. [...]

Last One, I Promise *wink*

11. September 2008


We were at Glacier National Park for only 3 days, but so much happened. I just need to share a few more things and then I will move on to the calamity that struck us after we left.

Unintended Consequences

10. September 2008


I had really been feeling like the trip was a bust. I had wanted to show the kids all of these different things and they really weren’t too interested. CM and I were feeling that we spent more time with our back on them (because we were driving) than we did when we [...]

Ode to Oregon

10. August 2008


This trip never ceases to amaze me. CM had told me that Oregon has the only rain forest in America, so we decided to go and check them out. We looked a map and decided to spend a few days at Silver Falls State Park. Before we even got to the park [...]

So I Must Be Cheap

6. August 2008


So how cheap am I? Well I have a really hard time paying $40 for a campground. We have yet to purchase any membership in any association, and we have not bought a book on free campgrounds. I still have trouble with full price campgrounds. We are now in northern California and the first campground [...]

Our Trip to White Sands, New Mexico

15. July 2008

1 Comment

Yesterday we went to the White Sands National Monument. I had hoped to go early in the morning before it hit 100˚, but CM had read that it is best at night. So we ended up entering the park at around 7pm and we stayed until 10pm. Last night was perfect and [...]

Made It To The Desert (CM)

13. July 2008


No post for a few days. Sorry it has just been really busy. So here is a long update. We went to the lower ninth ward and then on to the French quarter while in New Orleans. There was a very stark contrast between the two areas. I am sure this has been true throughout most [...]

Another Long Day

Another Long Day

I didn’t get to make a post last night. By the time we finally pulled over for the night CM and I were both exhausted. We parked at a truck stop and had to open the windows for air. It was hellacious!! All of us were pretty much sweating in our sleep [...]

First Few Days (CM)

4. July 2008


So our trip has begun. Well almost. Even though we have left New York, we are sitting in New Jersey getting the RV down to a respectable amount of stuff to travel with. We were in such a rush to finish getting out our apartment that we started throwing stuff in the RV to try [...]
