  • 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 […]

  • Thanksgiving On Eastern Shores

    Thanksgiving On Eastern Shores

    As much as I love to cook, the idea of having someone else prepare Thanksgiving dinner has become more and more appealing these past few years. My mom and I reprised our trip from the previous Thanksgiving (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it) and headed out to Rehoboth Beach, DE, early Thursday morning.  On […]

  • Seattle – September 7 – 10

    Seattle – September 7 – 10

    Excited to finally be on my way to Seattle, I spoiled myself with a delicious breakfast at the Leavenworth Golf Club before hitting the road. The trip to Seattle was a blissfully short one, with just one stop at a place called Deception Falls, and I arrived around 1:30 PM. Deception Falls runs directly under […]

    Leavenworth, Washington – A Pleasant Surprise

    When I last left you, readers, I was cranky because I woke up in Steamboat Rock State Park believing I would end the day in Seattle. I was tired of cold food (due to the campfire restrictions caused by the wildfires) and ready for a couple days of no driving. But instead, I needed to […]

    September 5, Part 2; The Most Extreme Grilled Cheese

    After spending an hour amongst the Buddhas, I continued west to my first real taste of mountain driving in the tiny stretch of Idaho between Montana and Washington. I suppose I’d been meandering up in elevation without too much thought, but as soon as the “Welcome to Idaho” sign appeared, it was straight downhill along […]

  • September 5 – Part 1; Garden of One Thousand Buddhas

    September 5 – Part 1; Garden of One Thousand Buddhas

    September 5th was a long day. I wasn’t going to leave the area without going to the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, an hour north of Missoula. I found my breakfast spot through some research, Paul’s Pancake Parlor in Tremper’s Shopping Center in Missoula. The decor amused me, all decked out in Jamaican colors. If […]

  • Missoula, Montana

    Missoula, Montana

    Before leaving the Towsend / Canyon Ferry Lake KOA, my new friend recommended I stop at the Avon Family Cafe on my way to Missoula. She said they took good care of her, and the food was delicious. A warm home-cooked breakfast seemed like just the right thing since this is what I woke up […]
