St. Louis, MO – II

St. Louis style pizza. A reason to live. St. Louis can be made to be on the way from NY to Denver, in case you are wondering. Pizza creation palace And in St. Louis, there lives a magical edible likely non-nutrient fare called: pizza. But don’t be fooled. This shit is not pizza. It is its own creation. Which sort of resembles pizza. And I have craved this stuff on the regular since the first time I bit into that crackery, salty-weird-cheese delight. And you know what? It is nutrient dense. Nutrient dense for my soul. St. Louis has a…

Indianapolis, IN

We’re massively interested in cities that offer a place to plop Dyna’s levelers down within city limits. We’ve found that not enough cities – major or minor – offer this convenience. And convenience is almost always what an RV park/city park/parking lot in a city offers. When we roll into a place within city limits, we aren’t expecting a solid night’s sleep without employing some sleeping aids. EARPLUGS GUYS. SOUND MACHINE. Not drugs. Usually. Indiana State Fairgrounds Indianapolis permits RV docking at their State Fairgrounds, which is nice of them. And also you have to pay them. Which is not…

Erie, PA

Presque Isle, Erie, PA Regroup. After spending months either rolling around with guests (which we love to do!) and then parking longer than desired back ‘home’ to take care of some family business, we three really needed to regroup. And regrouping is what Erie, PA provided us. We rolled out of Owego, NY with no firmness about where our wheels would take us. After a pitstop for lunch with Jake’s family in Olean, NY, we ended our day in Erie, PA. When Erie popped into our brains, we figured we’d just park overnight at the casino again, and then head…

Owego, NY

We found ourselves back in Owego, NY in early August. And by ‘found’ ourselves… I might mean ‘lost’. Or something. Anyways, I woke up one morning in Owego after being there for a few days and thought to myself: “how did this happen?” I love Owego. I grew up in this area – and every time I get to come back, I’m grateful. But this was definitely an unexpected visit – especially knowing that we’d probably spend at least a month this go round. Dyna’s Owego Yard at Hickories Park Luckily, our local ‘front yard’ really is lovely. We pulled…

4 Day Haul: Bozeman, MT to Owego, NY

In early August, we decided that we needed to leave our Montana adventures and return to my (Liz’s) hometown area of NY. We had some family issues boiling up, and finally, we realized we just needed to be in my family’s area of residence to help. A perk of having a house on wheels… we can just bring it with us. And then we have the comforts of home, wherever we need to call home at a given time. Which is highly comforting when you are working through a stressful situation. We spent 4 days hauling 2,075 miles across the…

July 2019: Idaho & Montana

Our summer month of July was jam packed with free front yards, little boy farts, amazing hikes, wildlife sightings, awe causing natural features, and the occasional evening spent watching Nat Geo. Our group of Chortlers for the summer We were busy – in the best ways. The outdoor from dawn past dusk kind of busy. The kind where you’re exhausted, but still want to keep on going. The sort of busy where you finally give up telling your nephew he has to shower because holy hell he smells like a rotten turd and just bribe him with the promise of…

Moose, WY

Holy shit, guys. THE GRAND TETONS. This place is unreal. We rolled into the Moose, Wyoming area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest around 3pm on Father’s Day Sunday in June. The undeveloped camping areas on National Forest land here are pretty damned popular amongst the free camping faction. We scouted ahead to assess our comfort level with the access road and the availability of space for us to plop our big butt up on Upper Teton, then we slowly hauled ass up a steep, narrow dirt road and docked in a postcard. The view at Upper Teton View is mythical.…

Long Haul: 1-90/Hwy 26

We spent more time than we ever desired in Sioux Falls. Because we’re a couple of idiots and broke Dyna. But as soon as we remedied that tribulation, we took a poop dump, filled our diesel tank, and booked it 900 miles. This took us around 16 driving hours. Because Dyna. She’s a synonym for ‘slow’. And I am not a very talented long hauler. I require naps. And diet cola pitstops. “But Liz, can’t you just store some diet cola in your wheeled house’s fridge and nicely ask Jake to retrieve the diet cola for you when you need…

Sioux Falls, SD (& a ROC Trip)

As I sit here at the second truck repair shop we’ve slept at in less that a week, I still can’t get over what a great month+ we’ve had in Sioux Falls (with a 10 day trip back to ROC sans RV). Our home address! We made it ‘home’! Even sitting in this repair shop, with our broken drive axle & jacked up differential – I just feel so happy about so much of the stuff that we got to experience over the past little bit. Waiting for her day with the Dr. Repair shop? Yeah, we screwed our axle.…

Sioux City, IA

Sioux City sits on the border of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. We parked Dyna at the city park in South Sioux City, Nebraska, which was across the river from the actual Sioux City, Iowa. The city park where we parked was highly parkable. We picked a riverfront site with water and electric. We decided a view of the river was more important than being able to dump our nasty water tanks. The view of the river was great, until the view was hijacked by a person climbing a crane across the river, and having to be talked down by…
