Spare Tire On the Back

It happens. After spending a week in what we thought was an overrated and overpriced park in New Orleans, we happily left a day zcwearly to get to our next destination a day early. Yippee! Life then happened and then said "Well, not so fast, geeks!” While we were anxious to leave New Orleans, it was on the very infamous I-10, notorious for construction and potholes. We caught a shredded tire on the road, aka “road gators”, with our tow. No, we didn’t have the TPMS system (we have it but the one we bought wasn’t that good) but a…

New Year’s Day

We’ve kind of dropped off the face of the earth, so it seems, and don’t worry - we haven’t. We could use the same old excuses - we’ve been busy with work, we’ve been busy traveling, the holidays were crazy, the dog ate our posts - but in actuality we’ve just been lazy. Two months is an awfully long time but also a blink of the eye. For New Year's we like to keep it low-key. When you travel all the time and have excitement year-round, it’s a blessing to say "we're enjoying the quiet". We experimented in the kitchen…

Long Strange Trip

After we said goodbye to Breckenridge, we had a choice: take our time getting to Florida or power through. Powering through meant taking at least a week off of work and not ever taking time to see things. Taking our time meant we may need to stay a week in a place where we had no interest in staying and no relief of "we're here for a while, let's relax". It is one downside of working from the road is you actually work during the day, so you can't explore the biggest ball of string in the world because at…

Firewood

Chris was in Las Vegas for a conference at the Mandalay Bay. The night the conference was set to start, he met with clients and about to leave after just paying the bill. They started to head out around 10:15 pm. As they attempted to leave they were locked in by police. Everyone inside knew there was a gunman but no one knew how completely tragic the events would become. This is our second brush with an American tragedy that was too close for comfort. Kim was on 34th and 7th in New York on 9/11. Chris was in the…

The Hills are Alive!

Sometimes when you retrace your steps and return to places you've been before, you have your eyes on doing things you meant to do the first time around but didn't. For us, in returning to Central City for a quick stop. We liked the view from the KOA there (spots 1-10 only, if you're looking) so decided to spend half our long weekend there. There was a path where we saw bikers and hikers the year before so decided to check it out.

Buh bye!

After spending 4 months in Breckenridge, CO, the time has come to leave to our long trek back to Florida for the winter. We’d love to stay, but there’s this thing called “snow” that we aren’t too fond of. And in the mountains, snow is abundant. It’s not you, Breckenridge, it’s us. We had no intent on visiting Breckenridge last year when friends we met in Red Bay, AL (Tiffin campground, where hopeful sad broken Tiffins go to get fixed) said, “Oh, you’re going to Colorado? You must do Tiger Run!” We were late to the game and only were…

There Goes the Sun

We kind of argued with ourselves in regards to the eclipse. We were in Breckenridge which was supposed to have 90% totality. Having been to Wyoming and not itching to get back there, do we stay? Do we go? We didn't really have equipment to capture the eclipse so even if we were to be there in person, just our memories would need to hold us through. We opted to stay in Breckenridge. Prime eclipse viewing was scheduled for 11:45 Mountain Time. We headed out around 9:45 to search for the prime viewing area. We found it - a field…

Fire on the Mountain

There is no better time to do a review of a firepit right after a fire ban, no? You may have seen our area on the news (our families certainly did with people coming out of the woodwork ensuring we were safe...we are!) that there have been some forest fires and evacuations as a result of some careless people. So do as we say, not as we do. Start a fire. And do it without much muss or fuss. What: Flame Genie Wood Pellet Fire Pit Where to Buy: Amazon or direct from manufacturer Price: Around $100 If you're like us,…

Blue Sky Challenge

We were challenged The Blue Sky Challenge by Chickery's Travels. Challenge accepted! For those of you who don’t know, the Blue Sky Challenge is issued by fellow bloggers to some of their favorite blogs. The Rules As part of it, we must answer 11 questions from my nominator, then nominate 11 blogs that I love and give them 11 new questions. Our Answers 1.
