Completing our circumnavigation of the USA

We’re back in Reno, 3 months ago we left Reno to celebrate Easter at Grandma’s house in San Diego, and took the VERY scenic way home.  But Reno isn’t home anymore, our new home is going to be in Southern  California for the next year or so.  With our traveling adventures coming to an end […]

Meanwhile, back on the ranch…

Uncle Rich and Aunt Pam run a small farm on the outskirts of Medford with Sheep, chickens, barn cats, dogs, a horse and a HUGE garden.  We spent a little time doing the daily chores, including mucking out the stalls, knocking down the cob webs, and watching Booger heard chickens and lambs.  We had perfect […]

Northwest Coast

Traveling down the Washington and Oregon coast is wet, cloudy, green, and beautiful.  The rain forest on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula gets about 9 feet of rain per year which translates to abundant waterfalls, plants with HUGE leaves, and muddy shoes.  We stopped at the Sol Duc Hot Springs so we could warm up, the hot […]

A little family time

Its all about family in the Northwest.  While driving though Coeur d’Alene we were happy to stop in Sand Point to see Becca’s father, Russel and his wife Christy.  We were only able to visit for one day because of our schedule, so we promised to come back soon so we could spend more time […]

Pic-a-nic baskets at Jellystone

We bolted through the rest of Canada and then through Michigan, Wisconson, Minnesoda, North Dakota, and half of Montana to get the first national park in the world, Yellowstone.  There are quite a bit of tourists but there is SOOOO much room to move around the park that you don’t notice it that often.  Coming from Reno […]

What New Orleans wishes it could be

In stark contrast to the nasty streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Montreal’s French Quarter is stocked full of eclectic eateries, funky clothiers, exotic chocolatiers, playhouses, fantastic breweries and actual French speakers.  It really is another country though, so don’t go thinking crossing into Canada is a walk in the part.  There is HEAVY security, passports are required, and […]

Nor’easter

An interesting tidbit learned during our visit to Boston was that Justin’s great grandmother, Elsie, used to tell the Boston relatives  how much she missed the seafood on the east coast.  Naturally, we pointed the motorhome to the sea and made a b-line for the first fishing town we could find.  About an hour later […]

The infamous Boston relatives

For years growing up I remember hearing about an entire branch of our family living in Massachusetts.  My Great Grandfather, Arch Angelo, came to Boston from Fratiminore, a suburb of Napoli (Naples) back in the early 1900’s.  It was here that met whom was to be my great grandmother, Elsie Tarantino, a beautiful Italian girl that just so happened […]

Jersey and NYC

The thought of living in New York has always made us cringe…8 million people crammed onto a little rock playing king of the island is not our idea of fun…but we had the wrong idea.  We’re not saying we want to drop the idea of living on our own healthy slice of land, but we finally understand […]

Vote for planning ahead

Everyone should take a trip, at some point in their life, to see our nations capital.  The surrounding symbolisms are captured in every glance in every corner of your eye.  Whether that’s a good thing or not, I don’t know, but it does force you to ask many important questions to yourself, some that you might […]
