Twins Separated at Birth- The Jimmy Van Coach

Wednesday, 06 November 2013 by

A funny thing happened while I was driving through Central Oregon (just before Madras, to be exact)… we spotted our twin! I’ve been told that there were just about 100 of these Jimmy Van Coach made, so running into another one is certainly rare. And it made me very glad we found the one we

Let The Sun Shine In

Sunday, 03 November 2013 by

I’ve been wallowing. It’s not pretty, but it is what it is. Another good reason to be traveling alone, sobbing eyes aren’t very attractive! The gloomy weather is adding to my mood (or taking away from it, as the case may be!) so I’ve decided to move along, heading up to Seattle where I’ve got

Not every day is wonderful

Today is a down day. There, I said it. I know I’m usually perky and upbeat and all so enthusiastic for this life I’ve chosen, but today… I’m sad. I went to bed last night with the deepest heartache missing Purl. Sometimes it just comes out of the blue and smacks me and I crumble.

October (Birthday!) Update

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 by

I’ve not been as regular with this blogging as I’d like- too busy adventuring, I guess. So I decided to treat myself for my birthday and update all my own websites, launch a new product and put my own digital house in order. Why not? Allow me to indulge in some updates, longish post ahead,

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

Friday, 11 October 2013 by

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

Hot Rod Car Show Swoon in Fairfax, California

Tuesday, 17 September 2013 by

Meandering north from San Francisco and Sausalito to visit friends in Sebastapol, I happened upon a hot rod car show in Fairfax, CA. Rt 1 on a Sunday morning… don’t take it if you mind traffic. DO take it if you want to discover something beautiful, fun or interesting. I always prefer the slower, more

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

Wednesday, 04 September 2013 by

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. Jay Schafer, originally of Tumbleweed and now Four Lights was one of the biggest sources of information. Yet, I had actually yet

Vintage Swoon

Tuesday, 03 September 2013 by

It’s pretty obvious that I have a “thing” for cool rides, of both the two- (three!) and four-wheeled variety. I’m not the detail-oriented type that can give you all the specs on any given vehicle. I just know fabulous when I see it. And, I did. I was filling up Ms Piggy (oh, that takes
