This blog is about me and my family and our crazy months-in-a-camper-van adventure. Nobody knows what made my dad think of it, but now we’re all about to be squished in a camper van – five people and a dog- for a few months. What could go wrong?

  • Bend, Oregon

    December 2, 2019 by

    This time, I’m taking a break from National Parks for a blog post about another city. During our time in Bend, it didn’t snow (but there was snow on the ground). We had fun throwing snowballs, at least, until the wetness finally hit us and we scurried into the warmth of the camper. We parked… Read more

  • Where would you go?!

    January 13, 2020 by

    Well, we’ve seen a lot of places in these two months, and we thought we’d do a reflection on all of the cities we’ve been to. Each city has either one word or a phrase or sentence of some kind. Try to think about what place you would live in based on these words. Thank… Read more

  • Santa Fe, New Mexico

    January 6, 2020 by

    So, for whatever reason, we’re here in Santa Fe for a month. This was the first pick (of the parents, not the kids), so we’ve got a month here. Christmas and New Year’s were celebrated here. On Christmas Eve, it was obvious we were going to have a snowy Christmas. We woke up to snow.… Read more

  • Albuquerque, NM

    December 27, 2019 by

    This is one of the last few posts; this one is about Albuquerque. Albuquerque is a pretty large city; about 1 million people live in it. We stayed at a hotel for a night to see how good it is. We went downtown, drove around and saw that it was a normal big city; with… Read more

  • The lowest we’ve ever been.

    December 16, 2019 by

    This blog post is about Death Valley. It is about 5 hours from Carson City, and 5 hours from Prescott. We stayed here for a night. An interesting fact is that Death Valley is below sea level, so we camped at about 200 feet below sea level, though the lowest we went was 266 feet… Read more

  • Arizona’s Christmas City

    December 16, 2019 by

    Guest Post by Mom If cactuses, red rocks, and HOT come to mind when you hear the word Arizona, this area in the northern part of the state will surprise you.At an elevation over 5000 feet, Yavapai County and its county seat Prescott occupy a very different climate than Phoenix or Tucson. Prescott is known… Read more

  • These trees are so tall, you can’t see the tops!

    December 11, 2019 by

    This is a giant National Park filled with giant trees! It’s called the Redwood National Park and it stretches very far (although it’s mostly all in California). This National Park is so big that we spent two days touring it. On the first day, we stayed at a campsite in the woods. There were so… Read more

  • From sea to shining sea

    December 10, 2019 by

    We made it to the West Coast! All the way from the East Coast to the West Coast in less than 6 months! We are now driving through California as I write, with three spots left to check out! After that, it’s just the elimination process to determine where we’re going! A bonus fact is… Read more
