  • The Maiden Voyage of Rosie, Baby and Me

    The Maiden Voyage of Rosie, Baby and Me

    Call it a maiden voyage, or a shake-down trip, depending on who you ask. This is the story of the first adventure with my travel trailer, Rosie. In August 2019, I made the craziest decision. I was going to pack up my home, rent it out, and become a nomad. In October, I bought a […]

    Week 1 – The Great Road Trip

    I don’t know if this will be a long post or a brief one. I’m currently at a hotel in Sioux City, Iowa. I’ll start with what I’ve learned so far. 5 hours of driving daily is a bit excessive. So, I’ve cut out the Colorado sites and set up a more relaxed trip across […]
