From scuba diving to backpacking, I love new outdoor adventures, especially those that include my family. I have a four year-old daughter and one year-old son who I spend most of my time with. My husband and I love to travel and would do so more if it was in the budget. We also love to go camping and enjoy fun bike rides as a family. I love to write and do so in my free time.

Summer Weekend Backpacking…With Kids

Summer Weekend Backpacking…With Kids

What better thing to do on a hot summer’s day than take a hike with the family?  Not just a short hike, but a weekend-long backpacking-type hike.  Backpacking again (for our fourth time), almost a year after our first time, feels like a piece of cake (for the most part).  We have gotten smart with how much weight we are carrying (or NOT carrying, for that matter) and have adequately adjusted... [Read more]

Getting Ready to Head Out? Don’t Forget the Final Check on your RV!

Getting Ready to Head Out?  Don’t Forget the Final Check on your RV!

Have you ever forgotten to do the final check on your RV before driving away from your house or campsite? I have an uncle, whom I love dearly, who drove out of his driveway with his RV still plugged into the wall of his house.  As a fairly new RV-owner and having felt rushed for time when departing, he enjoys amusing  his listeners with the retelling of this story… They were headed to New Mexico... [Read more]

Life’s Seasons

Life’s Seasons

Are you feeling stressed out by the mad holiday rush and last minute Christmas gifts you still need to get?  It is usually around this time of year, with less than a week to go before Christmas, that I really start to feel the pressure.  I feel it all month long, really, but it’s especially bad in the last home stretch, with less than seven days to go, that I really feel the stress.  Really, I... [Read more]
