OOPS! I've Been MIA for Nearly Two Months

The other day I realized it had been nearly two months since I wrote a blog post. There are always so many things to take care of when I come home for a while. I thought I'd say Hi and recap my Winter and Spring 2019 trip. 





Please don't try to make sense of my crazy route. I just followed my heart and the weather and flew by the seat of my pants. There were days when I'd get up and decide where to go on the spot. I used to have to plan very carefully, but now I can just wing it. Winging it is not natural to me, but I kinda like it. Perhaps a combination would suit me. 

According to my trip planning app, this trip consisted of;
18 weeks duration,
10 States,
5 National Parks,
41 stops of at least one night,
111 hours of driving (just towing Bridget),
6,955 miles (just towing Bridget), and,
1,000,000+ "Watch for Rattlesnakes" signs.

I loved it and hated it all at the same time. I guess that's to be expected when you have such a significant change in your circumstances. It's a learning process, right? 

I started a whole new visited states map when I got Bridget. It's filling up nicely. I'm also adding National Park stickers when I visit one. 

That sticker under the door handle was given to me by Jonathan of TinyShinyHome who I was camped next to in Winslow, AZ. What a lovely family and a beautiful vintage Airstream. 
For now, Murphy and I are just hanging out at my Brother's place in the lap of luxury. Murphy loves it here! 

What's not to like? When you can hunt rabbits from the comfort of your mom's bed, you've got it made, right?

  1. I admire you. I just couldn't do it alone. If something happened to my man the RV for sale sign goes up. It's more work than play at that point. I'm glad you are doing what you want to do.

    1. Thank you! I often wonder what in the world I'm doing out there all alone but I just keep going. I don't think I could stand just being stuck somewhere all the time. To each his or her own.
