Day 9 – Time to Move On

Our last day in Montana was relaxing and wonderful. We spent most of the day doing the things that we love to do when we are camping and it is rainy ; hanging out, talking, and playing games. Olivia was able to do some fishing this morning, although she only lasted about 10 minutes before … Continue reading

Day 8 – They Call the Wind Moriah

Today started off with a nice visit to the local farmers market. On the way home we received alerts of an incoming wind storm. You could see it coming over the mountains. The wind was pretty intense, it knocked big branches off the trees and we had to batten down the hatches. It only lasted … Continue reading

Day 7 – A little dose of reality

Today we had to spend the morning catching up on real world things. I had a few hours of work and John had some homework. Then I had an online meeting that lasted a few hours. The meeting was difficult because there were many who have been quarantined for months and needed some human interaction. … Continue reading

Day 6 – I Ain’t Sayin’ She a Gold Digger

Today we took on a whole new challenge- Be gold diggers. But not really. We went sapphire hunting! It took about two hours to drive up a steep and winding 30 mile road. The scenery along the way was fantastic. The sapphire mine was fun for something that forced all of us to sit and … Continue reading

Day 5 – Woods in the Woods

Day 4 – Into the Sunset

The four legged friends had a rough time getting up this morning. Chippy was very lethargic and tired. Toby, well, he simply wouldn’t get out of bed. We were all very excited for this section of our adventures. The drive along the Salmon River up to Montana was truly breathtaking. We played a game with … Continue reading

Day 3 – Slow and Steady gets the Pesos

We took a while to get up and running today. We spent most of the morning doing work and catching up on emails. I looked up to realize it was time to check out, and we hadn’t packed yet, It was a mad dash throwing everything and everyone together. And, I think I lost my … Continue reading

Day 2: Pleasant surprises

This morning started with one of those rights of passage for all traveling families. We told Olivia to watch Toby and keep him in the room while we packed the car. While loading the car, we turned around to see her standing outside the door, with the door closed. And what of Toby. He was … Continue reading

Day 1 – All the reasons we hate (and love) road trips.

2 a.m. – I woke up in a sweat after having a nightmare of being homeless and the “ladies of the night” were being mean to me. LOL. But seriously, I felt like I was having a panic attack because I was leaving my home for who knows how long. 8:00 a.m. We are finally … Continue reading

#Coddiwomple 2020 – Here We Go. . .

Why? When 2020 started, we posted a little something on Facebook that went like this; I don’t remember ever being this excited and nervous for a new year. 2020 is going to be big and scary for our family. Lots of adventures and big changes. Let the roaring 20s begin! We couldn’t have been more … Continue reading
