About the Author

My goal in life is to fill my family’s passports with stamps, creating buckets of memories along the way. You’ll find me writing about realistic ways for normal people to travel the world, whether you’re on a budget or enjoy luxury. I also enjoy taking us on the occasional detour to explore the inner workings of the travel industry.

The RV Day From Hell

I kinda missed a day 10 update.  With the lack of quality sleep in a trailer and the myriad issues with the RV, suffice it to say my production has dropped a bit.  🙂 If you want to see previous updates on our trip, links below: 9 Hours of Driving Gilmore The Merrier One of The Greatest Roller Coasters I’ve Ever Ridden Moving Our “House On Wheels” To New Hampshire Mount Washington Auto Road Cog Railway To The Peak of Mount Washington Hiking, Time With Friends, And A Broken RV(Of […]

Summer Vacation Day 7: Hiking, Time With Friends And A Broken RV (Of Course)

Thanks for stopping by to see how our family camping trip is going.  I haven’t sold the RV yet or left the keys in the pickup truck to see if someone would take it off my hands, so I guess we’ll call that a win.  The kids are having an incredible time, which, at the end of the day, is 99% of what matters.  If you want to read about the first six days of our trip, I’ve included those links below: 9 Hours of Driving Gilmore The Merrier One […]

Summer Vacation Day 4: Moving Our “House On Wheels” To New Hampshire

If you’re just checking in, I’m trying to get back into the habit of writing every day.  That means brief daily updates on our summer camping trip.  If I’m being honest about our camping experience you should be amused by my misery.  Here’s the first few days of our trip: 9 Hours of Driving Gilmore The Merrier One of The Greatest Roller Coasters I’ve Ever Ridden Yesterday was mostly a driving day.  We were relocating from Connecticut to the White Mountains in New Hampshire.  One of the upsides of a […]

Summer Vacation Day 3: One Of The Greatest Roller Coasters I’ve Ever Experienced

I’m trying to get back into the habit of writing every day, so you should see frequent updates on our summer vacation in the RV.  If that’s not your jam, I get it.  I’ll be posting about the rest of the travel world from time to time as well.  If you do want to follow along: Day 1 Day 2 Lake Compounce may be one of the best amusement parks you’ve never heard of.  I sure hadn’t heard of it, and we only ended up here by accident.  Nestled in […]

Summer Vacation Day 2: Gilmore The Merrier

These posts are meant to be quick updates about our summer vacation with the RV.  Day one found us driving…and driving…..and driving.  Day two would start out a bit rough and have some annoying stuff in the middle, but turned out mostly okay. After a long day of driving yesterday, I was in a hurry to get the trailer setup.  Once it was level and the electric and water were hooked up I went inside to sit down and catch my breath.  I didn’t bother with the sewer pipe hookups.  […]

Summer Vacation Day 1: 9 Hours of Driving

Hey, guys.  I’m trying to get back into the habit of writing every day.  Blogging is absolutely like a muscle.  If you don’t use it regularly, it will atrophy over time.  Where I used to write twice a day now I look at the keyboard sometimes and can’t even figure out where to start.  Some of that is due to medical issues I’ve been dealing with the past few months.  I discussed them at the end of this episode if you want to know more. Mostly, it’s just not being […]
