Parsons, WV

Lion’s Head Knob, Dolly Sods Wilderness, WV Almost heaven is right. Confederate rags pocking up the place If heaven was heavily laden with racism flags. And no, I don’t wanna hear about your ‘heritage’. If you’re flying a Confederate flag, I know what your heritage is. But other than the Confederate rags and Trump flags, West Virginia is a panty droppingly beautiful place. I never dropped panties. That isn’t my style. But I did get down to the bare minimum to swim in a West Virginia waterfall post trail run one Saturday. The waterfall may have been gushing poison mine…

Fries, VA

It’s pronounced ‘freeze’. Might as well get that bit of disappointment out of the way early. Fries, VA Fries, VA functioned as our soft place to land when the world felt as if it was locking door after door on us. The closures that prohibited us from moving about the U.S. did eventually taper off in late April, and then began to reverse themselves in mid-May. We initially booked a month in Fries, but in late April, extended out through the end of May. The looking glass into the future of campground availability was too foggy for us to trust…

Kicked Around Florida: Vero Beach & Melbourne

After being non-physically forcefully ejected from Jonathan Dickinson State Park due to Coronavirus induced closures of all Florida State Parks, we ended up at a private RV park in Vero Beach, Florida. No fun at Sunshine Travel RV Resort. #thankscorona We were able to snag a spot at the RV park due to the plight of Canadian snowbirds, most of whom had to end their trysts in warmer weather in order to get back across the Canadian border for fear of further border restrictions. When we called, we were quoted a $60/night price point, and guaranteed a campsite for the…

Gainesville, FL

Florida. We’ve been hesitant to steer our wheels towards America’s penile projection since we first set out on our nomadic journey. It’s the kind of phallus that you have to make reservations in to exist between the months of January and April. And, well, we’re not big on making reservations any more than a week in advance of our arrival. Because then we can’t do what we want. And we do what we want. But, we wanted to explore Florida – even though I was pretty convinced that it was just a smelly, clammy, gator ravaged cesspool. So, a few…

Limon, CO

There are no things to do in Limon, CO in early November. I’m not even positive there are things to do in Limon, CO at any time of year other than early November. Limon, Colorado We’re pretty good at entertaining ourselves, though. We used the barren two laners for some decent out-and-back long runs. Jake – 8 miles out. We found a Colorado welcome sign. We love us some Colorado. Although I would argue the Western portion is a bit more exciting. We hunkered down, and waited for the foot of snow that was still covering Dyna’s parking spot in…

Salina, KS

We’re rolling towards Denver… but Denver is currently frozen. And, well, we don’t really want to roll into Denver when it’s frozen. Because I am not personally indestructible to cold (my nephew apparently is, and has informed me of this fact on multiple occasions). And when we do arrive in Denver we will have a 15A hook-up. Which is enough to run possibly one space heater. I am a two space heater type of girl. Three if you really want to make me happy. So, we stalled a bit. Hung out in Salina, KS. Salina, KOASalina, KOA We secured a…

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…

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…

Farmerville, LA

We left Jackson, MS without much idea of our next stop. But, when we happened upon an RV park in Farmerville, LA that looked like it sat directly on an expanse of water, we decided to drive on up there and take a look. D’Arbonne Point RV Park We pulled into D’Arbonne Point late on a Friday afternoon, and after struggling valiantly to figure out how to claim a site and pay for that site, we took the Jeep out for a drive to check out the area. Pretty quickly we realized that the area is a giant fishing pond.…

New Orleans, LA (2)

With our stockpile of MoonPies from Mobile dwindling, we pulled into the French Quarter RV Resort in New Orleans. And no, it’s not shameful to eat 3 to 5 MoonPies per person, per day during Mardi Gras season. Or ever. But especially during Carnival/Mardi Gras season. So go on and dismount your MoonPie consumption high horse if you had mounted it. Or stay there. I’m actually jealous that you’re riding a horse and I’m not. French Quarter RV Resort (FQRV) is a swanky little place surrounded by high brick walls on the backside of the French Quarter. It’s clean, maintained,…
