Since we must have internet access in order to work, we just walk across the parking lot to the Rice Lake Public Library. We've met some very friendly … Continue reading »

Quiet on the Homefront in Wisconsin

You've been wondering what we've been up to since we haven't posted in several days. We spent last Wednesday and Thursday all day each day on the road. Wednesday was driving from Colorado through Nebraska. I've always wanted to go to Nebraska since my maternal grandma grew up there. I don't know where though. We … Continue reading »

Coming Back Home - Where is Home?

Yesterday I read a post at another traveler's blog discussing where home is. Being a nomad means we have no home in the traditional sense of the word.

Montreal 7th Leg: Rice Lake to Fremont (Part 2)

Our second-longest drive (after the Roseville-Phoenix jaunt) went well, overall. We kept hoping we'd arrive early, and it looked like we would until the left headlamp went black an hour from Fremont.

Montreal 6th Leg: Sioux Falls to Rice Lake

Another short driving day, but boy we could stand to get out early. We woke up at 7 despite the 4 days of driving and the time change. Bedrooms are downstairs, kitchen et al up, so we went upstairs and watched Mimi make bread. Whole wheat with other grains, honey instead of sugar, specially shaped … Continue reading »
