Helen, GA

There is so much meat in Helen, GA. Meat (Jake + in front of Jake). Spaetzle. It’s pretty much the only thing there is to eat. That, and buttered soaked noodle dumplings, otherwise known as spaetzle. I don’t eat meat, although Jake does. But, I completely agree with everything about spaetzle. After nearly two weeks of spaetzle, however, I was probably sweating out butter on my runs.

On our inaugural trip to the little city, we felt the limitations that being a 15-minute drive into Greenville imposed. We often…

We are coming to terms with the idea that maybe we actually like Dirty Myrtle. We seem to end up here at a frequency that would indicate this actuality, especially since Myrtle Beach (#dirtymyrtle) is not on the way to anywhere. So our ‘Nashville’ excuse (we have stopped there a few times too – but Nashville is usually ‘on the way’) doesn’t elucidate the fact that we have now spent over three months of our traveling life parked in Dirty Myrtle over the span of 5.5 years. If I was Jake, I would give you that in percentage form, but…

Carolina Beach, NC

We’ve been a bit rudderless in deciding where we want to be, and where we are going to head to next. A few days before deciding we were ready to relocate somewhere, we decided the ocean sounded nice. Carolina Beach State ParkCarolina Beach State Park We hadn’t stayed near Wilmington yet, so we set about snagging a campsite at the state park in Carolina Beach, which is just outside of Wilmington. We rolled in on a Friday afternoon before the park’s gates were to be locked. The powers that be at Carolina Beach State Park lock the gates at curfew…
