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 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.

Mostly, it’s just not being […]

Help Us Plan Our Summer Trip AND Do Some Good At The Same Time!

I’ve got $500 burning a hole in my pocket.  Can you help me with that?

In case you missed it, our family bought an RV last summer.  While we love to travel to far away places the COVID-19 pandemic definitely got in the way of that.  We started out by renting RVs, which I highly recommend before buying.  […]

Mistakes In Camping. Why I Ended Up Purchasing Two Pickup Trucks In 30 Days.

It’s the best laid plans, they say, right?  Like most of you, we’re jonesing to get back out on the road to travel.  My wife and I knew that any plan to get back to travel would have to involve a few key points.  First, it would have to check the boxes for our daughter’s anxiety.  She’s dealt with anxiety since she was quite young and has developed some pretty amazing tools to keep it in check.  But, germs are absolutely one of her major hot buttons.  As she said […]
