End of a Journey

Sitting on the hardwood floor of a downtown posh apartment, it does not feel like home, I have to admit, not because the lack of furniture, I am used to that. Instead, I could not help but thinking of my favorite rock from Alaska, which I fished out of a ice-cold river recommended for gold [...]

Badlands Ranch and RV Resort

We found these guys through the Passport America site. The badlands being a national park tends to mean that the campgrounds are a little pricey, but the $14 we paid for this campsite is a bargain. As we are constantly living on the road we have to keep the campground cost down. This means [...]

Chicago Chilling

Lived in Chicago area for quite some time before. In fact, Chicago is one of my favorite cities. Yet, I have always felt the chills in this area. Guess memory is selective, I had hoped that this time, it would be different. With the spring, with a home, I would not feel it. But guess [...]

You Have Deer Tick in Your Eye! – First Encounter

Did not know of deer ticks till I was warned when I bid farewell to my life as an “indoor cat”. Since then, I heard stories about it, read about it, saw a cyclist’s socks covered with ticks. But I had been lucky, as I hiked in woods, kayaked in streams and rivers, backpacked [...]

Home on Wheels with No Comprise – Haier HLP21E

Have been on the road for almost a month now, we are still learning. From time to time, I still find myself getting suprised by out little home. Well, this is the first home we own, not just the shell, but also the appliances and furnitures. Washing machine was the only thing that was missing. [...]

Rocket Scientist and Airstream

Today our good neighbor Rodger stopped by while he was walking his dog. He offered to check out our non-functioning furnace. The other day, when he invited us over to watch race and cooked us dinner, he learned our airstream is not heated by furnace. He was worried and offered to check it out. We [...]

Blue Grass of a Spring

It was another beautiful day today. When we almost randomly picked the campground, just by the fact it hosts blue grass festival. It is not the season yet, but why not? We climbed up the hill on an one-lane gravel road, it was a sunny day just like this. The camp site is on the [...]

End Of An Era – What We Do In The Name Of Love

Yesterday was the last day we made a trip back to where we lived for the past year. Just when we moved out, the up-coming small town started to tear down a bridge which connected us to the town center. Now it is half gone. I have to say it was an impressive sight, seeing [...]

Amish Country and Space Icecream

Our last day in Amish country, when we were sorting out some of our things, we found a packet of space icecream we got during our trip to the space center. Took a break, we sat outside, bathing in the warmth of spring sunshine, we tore apart the package, the dehydrated icecream sandwitched between two [...]

The Ebay Saga

Well, we have been on the road for couple of weeks now, yet the Ebay saga of our decluttering stage follows us still. The returned package, the nonresponding ebayers, the buyer remorse, the penny cruncher… it has been a learning curve.
