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 [...]

Why This Blog Died In Montana

8. September 2008


Two words: Pure exhaustion. At the time of my last post, we were having terrible problems getting any kind of internet signal and we were headed to Glacier National Park in Montana. Well, when we got there what we thought was a 1.5 mile hike, turned out to be a 4.5 mile hike [...]

First Few Days In Hawaii

5. August 2008


So, Hawaii was … interesting. On our first day at the beach we learned that Widget was deathly afraid of the ocean. I mean, Midget wasn’t too happy about getting in the water either, but at least she tried and she didn’t cry. The first time we walked Widget to the water [...]

OOps I (okay, we) Did It Again!!

29. July 2008


You would think that we learned our lesson last time. But no, we didn’t! We’re still making plans and counting on money that we don’t have on hand. We did it with the RV and we got burned. We didn’t learn our lesson and we did it with this trip and [...]

Honolulu vs. NYC

28. July 2008


So, CM and I had an “animated discussion” yesterday about moving to Hawaii. I asked him if given the choice to buy a house in Hawaii or buy a house in New York, which would he choose. Believe it or not, the cost of living in Hawaii is slightly higher than it is [...]

We have just been on the go since our last post. I can’t say what we’ve been doing a lot of sightseeing. More than anything, we’ve been doing a lot of driving. We were on the this little road, I think it’s called US-58, and it took us up, down, and around [...]

New Ways of Doing Things

17. July 2008


CM and I had dreamed about life on the road. Just picking up and going to see new places at a moments notice. Well, we’ve officially been RVing for over two weeks now, and we realize that a life on the road isn’t as sweet as we initially thought it would be.

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 [...]

1997 Called, They Want Their Internet Speed Back

14. July 2008


I’ve been meaning to write a post about this subject for a while now. The day CM told me we were taking the cable modem back, I freaked out! I hadn’t made any arrangements for Internet access, so I was worried I was going to have to go without for a couple of [...]
