Saved by a Flat Iron

There’s a first time for everything. This morning was cold. Just about everything was frozen. When I went to start the bus, the gas pedal was as hard as a rock. I’ve never had this happen before. So, what freezes on a gas pedal? Nothing. After a little poking around...

Bugs.

We’ve both been bitten by mosquitos before, and sometimes had several bites that were annoying. AJ lived in Alaska on and off for five years where the mosquitos are as big as hummingbirds. But nothing prepared us for what was in store for us in Mexico and Belize- and...

All I want for Christmas is… camping gear!

All I want for Christmas is… camping gear!

Bethany here, the other half of this dynamic duo. Like Ike said, we are in trip-prep mode. Hard to go back to our jobs after taking some time off in December and knowing that our trip is only 4 months away. In the mean time, here are gifts that our awesome family gave...

How to find a hot shower?

At home we used to take a shower every day. We both really love the long, hot showers and before we left for this trip, the ability to take a shower all the time was one of our worries. We did not have the illusion that while on the road we would still be taking a...
The blue table is dead!

A few years ago on a long road trip, Roseann and I opted for convenience over our usual preference for solitude, and stopped for the night in a developed campground: picnic tables, barbecues, flat sites, perfectly symmetrical pine trees—actually quite nice as such...
