Reminiscing about Being on the Road

I took a look at my drafts and found this written in October 2017. Not sure how I didn't publish it, but it's worth a read! This week included the Minnesota Education Association (MEA) days, October 19th and 20th. So, I loaded up my car, and Kenobi and I hit the road in the early... Continue Reading →

Evolution of Camp Food

When we first set out on our cross-country road trip in the summer of 2015, the cooler was full of sausages, cheese, eggs, condiments, meat, and I don't remember what else. After my morning fail with coffee, it was difficult to get the cooking going. Even after purchasing the Coleman Bottle Top Propane Stove, I didn't... Continue Reading →

Making It Happen

It's time. What seemed to be a catastrophe is really an opportunity.

To avoid Memorial Day weekend, we'll be heading up Wednesday afternoon and driving back into the city on... Continue Reading →

Thunderstorms were predicted, so I was anxious to get the tent up and fasten a... Continue Reading →

Upcoming Trip

We made the move from NYC to Chicago at the start of July, went for a short hike in the Indiana Dunes where Kenobi figured out that he can swim, and took a road trip with my father to Kansas City where Kenobi was not welcome. Other than these short excursions, we haven't done much... Continue Reading →
