I’m basically a turtle. I carry my home on my back! Which also means I have no set home, except for the mini-rv we live in. I’m really enjoying living a mobile lifestyle, but there are some aspects that need to be taken care of in order to embark on this “unconventional” lifestyle. (Actually, I

We drove into Oregon in the wee hours of the morning with the goal of spending the day at Crater Lake National Park. I had seen photos and heard of this National Park and was also celebrating being able to use my America The Beautiful pass now that the government sequestration is over. The only

Odometer Flipping

What a pleasure to be back on the road! We flew back from NYC to San Jose, where Ms Piggy Motorhome had been parked waiting patiently for us for 3 weeks. She was totally fine, if just a bit dirty, and ready for adventure. I had been worried about the front end alignment, and after

California’s Central Coast on a Vespa

Friday, 13 September 2013 by

Traveling from Los Angeles northward was only going to happen one way. PCH. Legendary for a reason. This is a road that should have been experience on two wheels, but the quandary is I also needed to keep moving, so I put the Vespa on the hitch and hit the road. One day soon, I

Tiny Town

Tiny house, mobile lifestyle, small space living. These have all interested me for quite a while. When I downsized from my house to small apartment, I was inspired by many blogs and articles.

With the arrival of Ms Piggy in our lives, we now carry our home with us. As a fully self-contained unit, we can live off the grid (I like “Off the Cord” a term I first read on Gone With The Wynns). Add in my love of solar power and most of my needs are

Joshua Tree

  While I had few plans on the Vespa trip, it was always intended that I’d ride through Joshua Tree National Park and toward Los Angeles. The “Arizona” segment made this not quite possible, but I was intrigued with the famed national park nonetheless. It did not disappoint. By the way, would any kid of

A Greater Range

Thursday, 18 July 2013 by

There are times when I can hardly even stand the beauty that has surrounded me. There is a feeling of expansiveness that can almost be painful. And yet I don’t mean this in a negative way at all. I consciously choose NYC as a home base- part for family, part for accessibility. But the limitations

The 2 lane highway between Santa Fe and Albuquerque was a delight full of natural beauty, art studios and some of the best coffee I’ve ever had (Cheers to Java Junction!)   Can’t wait to return and spend a few days in Madrid.

A Classic 66 Day

Friday, 12 July 2013 by

The kind of day that has me in awe from the very start. Can’t believe it is only mid-day. THIS is what happens when you open yourself up to the extraordinary…     Packing up in the wee hours to catch first light, I was sent on my way with a pleasant “That is quite
