Open letter to the internet

Dear Internet, When I decided to buy a boat, I thought you would have my back.   Seriously. Anytime I need an answer or at least part of an answer to a question, a problem, a recipe, or to prove someone wrong when they state what is obviously BS with authority. you've...

Epic FART 2017: Day 8

Day 8. We finally arrived at our final destination, Anacortes, WA. We drove 2,650 miles and had many adventures along the way. The first half of this road trip has been truly epic. A life changing experience. Or life changing for me at least. I'll talk more about that...

Epic FART 2017: Day 7

Day 7 of our Epic First Annual Road Trip and we finally crossed the border into Washington! We left our RV park in La Grande, OR midmorning. We stopped for groceries and got lunch along the way--these kids eat so much!! We were initially going to stay at an RV park in...

Epic FART 2017: Day 6

Day 6. We have almost survived one week of living on the road. That's pretty spectacular if I do say so myself. The days are running together and I never know what day it is. If it weren't for me writing in the blog regularly, I wouldn't even remember what we have...

Epic FART 2016: The Jack Debacle Part 2

You can read the first part of this story here. The morning of day 5, we drove through Salt Lake City, UT and stopped at a Camping World to get a new jack. Chris had already called ahead to ensure that they had what we needed. They also had a service bay so I could...

Epic FART 2017: Day 5

Day 5. We woke up early so we could get on the road. We wanted to make it to Oregon, so we had a long drive ahead of us. Also, we had to stop at an RV store to get a jack since ours broke. You can read all about that here. It was pretty unfortunate that we had to wake...

Epic FART 2017: The Jack Debacle Part 1

Oh man. On day 3, we unhitched the trailer when we were in Cameron so we could drive to the Grand Canyon without it. When we got back to the campsite, I hooked everything up (all by myself for the first time ever!) so that we could travel to our next destination. When...

Epic FART 2017: Day 4

Today was fairly uneventful, though as I type this I'm feeling exhausted--like we just had the most adventure filled day of the entire trip! Our day began at the RV park in Panguitch. Since we had a good internet connection, we decided to have a lazy morning and hang...

Epic FART 2017: Day 3

On day 3 of our Epic First Annual Road Trip (Epic FART), we woke up early and headed to the Grand Canyon. I had read that it can get pretty crowded with long lines at the entrances, so we wanted to get out there early. We were unhitched from the trailer, so we left it...

Epic Fart 2017: Day 2

We had an easy morning around the trailer on Tuesday, the second day of our epic road trip from Dallas, TX to Anacortes, WA. I worked on blogging our first day (and enjoyed some coffee and peace and quiet) while everyone else slept in. It was nice!  Once the crew was...

Epic Fart 2017: Day 1

Epic FART 2017 began on Monday, June 12 at about 5 am-- and in case you're wondering, Epic FART stands for Epic First Annual Road Trip. We had to get clever for our hashtag, haha! Anyway, the kids and I along with my Life-Wife, Julie, hit the road for the first big...
