Welcome to our Log. We started this blog in 2012 to chronicle the adventures of a family of six as we sell everything and move onto a converted bus for a while. The house finally sold and we are on our way!
Our family made the decision to do away with most of our ties to “normal” life. We scaled down, sold off nearly all our stuff (including our house) in exchange for freedom. Changing our paradigm (and maybe yours too!) of walking in faith, the meaning of ‘success’, and what we want to pour into our children. Focusing now on what is most important to us–loving and serving God and people. We have been blessed with the opportunity to take a bus that has been converted into a mobile living space and adventure for a while. Trusting that God will lead us as we learn to slow down, simplify, and enjoy the scenery as we meander along in all that we do.
After leaving the Grand Canyon we had no idea how we were going to spend the next three days before we could check into the RV park in Las Vegas. The girls needed to catch up on virtual school and … Continue reading
The first time Sean and I went to the Grand Canyon was in 2001. I was with Delta, so we could fly anywhere for free and we only had baby Bertle at the time. It was February and even though … Continue reading
Desert, I love you. Your myriad of cacti, your beautiful flowers that I never imagined were in you. Rocks…I never knew they could be so breathtaking…so inviting. Exploring you has been thrilling. I find myself pilfering pebbles from your surface … Continue reading
Almost every RV full-timer will tell you that while it’s an amazing lifestyle, it’s definitely not for everyone. Most people like to have an expectable (and yes…that is a word!), predictable and schedule based life. For the most part our … Continue reading
We are loving it here in the West. The different colored dirt, cool rocks, mountains sprinkled everywhere, odd wildlife like javelinas (never even heard of those before we came out here). It’s so beautiful. We’re going to have a very … Continue reading
This is all that separated us from Mexico while we were in Big Bend. We almost let them cross all the way but then thought the better of it. We would wait til the next day when we planned to … Continue reading
When we set out for a hike, we followed the advice of some fellow campers who have been coming to Big Bend every year for the past 12 years. (That’s how awesome it is.) They told us where to … Continue reading
I’m not going to save the best for last. I’m giving out dessert first. This was our favorite place in Big Bend. Santa Elena Canyon is a magical place. It took us just over an hour to drive to it … Continue reading
Now we are traveling into a part of the country where we have never been. This is the first time since we have been on this trip where I have truly felt that we are on an adventure. Into the … Continue reading
*NOTE: Sean and I are both writing about this leg of the trip, which we will take in chunks because there’s just so much. Consequently, there may be some overlap. I don’t know if this blog is big enough for … Continue reading
