Waking Up From a Dream Come True

Over 12,000 miles, 22 states, 3 countries, numerous National Parks…that’s what the end of our journey looks like. Our plans seemed to change as often as our road, but that’s life. This last month has held an unexpected trip back to the east coast to spend a few more weeks with my parents (and gave […]

Perspective

Update Number 3

I had grand ideas of writing extraordinary stories of our journey.  I imagined having hours spent perfecting a fascinating travelogue…I don’t know where I thought those hours would come from and instead I’m covering a lot of ground really fast…but for those who are really interested…here is part 3 of our journey. We’v passed 10,000 […]

Road Trip

Another Update

Coming up on 10,000 miles traveled I thought it was time for another update… I left off last time in the Badlands and record high temperatures and storms.  The plan was to head for Grand Tetons National Park, but we had a quick trip through Mount Rushmore on the way to have a look at […]

Mangawhai New Zealand

There is nothing like a 3 year old with a stomach bug to make you suddenly miss home. After cleaning up a car seat with socks (because that’s all we had)…then cleaning up someone else’s bed… I was reminded how much easier it is to deal with sick when you are in your own home […]

First Leg of the Journey

First Leg of the Journey

With the first leg of our journey nearly done, we are enjoying a few days of NOT driving.  We’ve made it to Brisbane where we can relax  before we head to New Zealand for two weeks. We spent the first day of our departure – Easter Sunday – with Milla Milla Church on Hockey’s farm, […]
