Coming Home

Coming Home

We are, of course, always “home”. When you live in a tiny house on wheels, home is, literally, wherever you park it. However, among all of the amazing places we have visited around the world, Puerto Vallarta is our most often visited, and one place we...
Taking it Easy in Salt Lake City

Taking it Easy in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City, the high-elevation capital of Utah, draws visitors from around the world. With its close proximity to both snow for skiing and the Great Salt Lake for water sports, this Western city’s scenic setting is matched with world class activities. Whether you...
The Reality

The Reality

Yesterday someone commented on a blog post I did, telling me, in effect, that I was a whiner. I spammed his comment, not even bothering to engage in any sort of dialogue with such nonsense,  but it was actually a perfect setup for this post, which I’ve had in...
Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree

We had to escape. San Diego was sucking us dry emotionally and financially and with the addition of a rainy weekend forecast, we knew it was head out or lose our minds. The answer: Joshua Tree. We had heard of Joshua Tree National Park, of course, and Ken and Wendy...
Circling San Diego

Circling San Diego

These days our life has become consistent in it’s inconsistency. Our days are mostly spent circling San Diego. We have been here for 12 days. We have spent nights in 7 different locations. Our nomadic lives have taken on an even greater transiency . At this...
The Symphony of Mexico

The Symphony of Mexico

The crowing woke me first. Soon after the garbage trucks begam to rumble by, the dogs began to bark, the birds to chirp, and the music to play. Ahhhh, the symphony of Mexico. Recently someone in one of my facebook groups posed the question, “Are their a lot of...
Leaving La Ventana

Leaving La Ventana

La Ventana ~ a conflicting mix of emotions will forever come into play when we hear that name. For La Ventana is perhaps both the best and worst of our time in Baja. It is fair to say that the town itself was not our favorite, yet our two weeks there were two of our...
Camping Baja

Camping Baja

We spent 87 nights in Baja, camping at 19 different campgrounds (4 of them multiple times) 87 nights. Nearly 3 months. Here is a list of where we stayed so match up with the stories of our time that have been flowing as we traveled. I’m working on a follow-up...
Living Los Barriles

Living Los Barriles

Never fear. We are not actually living in Los Barriles. We did, however, end up spending more time there than any other place in Baja. More than three weeks during three different time periods. So I guess, basically, we were living in Los Barriles! It has been quite...
Searching for Solitude

Searching for Solitude

We were in Los Barriles. Still. We ended spending more time there than anywhere in Baja, for several reasons. But right then, as much as we were enjoying the town, we were searching for solitude. Throughout our journey so far we are often inspired by Erica &...
And Now there are Three

And Now there are Three

We stood sobbing on the sidewalk in the blazing heat. Hugging each other tightly, Aspen pressed against my leg. We had gone in as four….and now there were three. Porter came into our lives almost exactly three and a half years ago. We had just lost Maddy and...
Searching for Cool

Searching for Cool

After a wonderful weekend free camping with friends, followed by a scorching hot walking tour of lovely Todos Santos. We only had one thing in mind. We were searching for COOL. Enter Pescadero Surf Camp. A mere eight miles south of Todos Santos, Jaime runs a fantastic...
Todos Santos in Pictures

Todos Santos in Pictures

Founded as a mission in 1724, Todos Santos has long been admired as an artsy community. Perhaps best known in modern times as the home of the Hotel California, this Puebla Magico retains her original charm. Sadly, due to the lack of great camping options and super hot...
The West Side

The West Side

We have spent little time on the West Side of Baja. The reasons vary but it seems like the pounding waves of the Pacific Ocean, making for often unswimmable beaches, is just a bit too familiar. Too much like our much loved beaches of the Pacific Northwest. Instead, we...
The Appeal of the Old

The Appeal of the Old

San Ignacio, that lovely oasis of date palms. A wonderful respite from the surrounding desert landscape. It is easy to find you have lost several hours in the streets of San Ignacio. We wandered the grounds of the town plaza and Mision, once again extremely...
Finding Beauty in Unexpected Places

Finding Beauty in Unexpected Places

I am now fully certain I am not a dessert person. Although I can appreciate the stark beauty and dramatic contrast, a more lush foliage speaks to me and is where i feel at home. Driving down these many miles of dusty roads, with only cactus for company, I have begun...
Beer and Loreto

Beer and Loreto

BEER. We had been dreaming of beer. Now, don’t get me wrong. Obviously Mexico has plenty of beer. But we hail from the land of the brewpub, from a city with more brewpubs per capita than any other. We were dreaming of craft beer and we were not to be denied!...
