Adventures

The Next 24 Hours

We woke up on Sunday with our boats still rafted together... and wet carpet. When we had first arrived at Decatur, the carpet was slightly damp, but I thought it was from Tucker spilling his water. That wasn't it. The carpet had proceeded to get soaked over night and...

Maiden Voyage

There was a meteor shower scheduled for Saturday night, so I decided it would be a good time to take Tosca out on her maiden voyage. Destination: Decatur Island. I finally felt like I had enough done that I could safely take her out.  I had new chain, new anchor line,...

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...
