Heading Out West in 2014

It's been nine months since we've traveled out West. Last May we went out to Phoenix, San Diego, and the Sacramento area. We were able to visit lots of friends and family. We've been feeling the itch to travel some again and see our very good friends in Phoenix and my married daughter in Sacramento. … Continue reading »

"Enjoy Your Vacation"

People keep saying that. "Enjoy your vacation." I've stopped correcting them. Sue has already commented on all the work going on while we travel. I wanna talk about this whole "if you're traveling it must be a vacation" mindset. It's wrong.

It's Not a Vacation! We're Working When We Travel

So we took this whole month of May to travel from our home in Wisconsin down to Phoenix, out to San Diego, up to Northern California, and end up back up June 1.

It's About Time for Something New Here!

Since moving to Rice Lake, Wisconsin in April 2012, we haven't done a whole lot of traveling that we've written about. I'm going to try to make sure and write about our travels this month though in May 2013. This month's trip will take us out of the snow we just had on May 2 … Continue reading »

What Is Your Source of Income?

Families who want to travel or are traveling often get asked this question. We have multiple streams of income and the one that's been around the longest is Spinhead Web Design. In paradoxical leap worthy of Dr. Who, the Spinhead website has reverted to our design from September of 2002, based on Joel's favorite Dr. … Continue reading »

A Year Ago Today We Left Roseville California

A year ago today we left Roseville California to head to Montreal. It's been quite a year. We've driven through a lot of states and stayed with lots of interesting people. What have we learned? For one thing, I don't want to live in a big city ever again. I don't want to move back … Continue reading »

Morning Tea Routine - A Little Taste of Home

Joel and I are not coffee drinkers usually. We do have a morning cup of tea - every morning. It's our daily morning routine. It was reinforced in 2005 when we went to Ireland and had Irish breakfast tea every morning. Actually throughout the day. Since we've come to Minnesota I'm finding I want tea … Continue reading »

Leaving Colorado and Heading Back to California for a Short Visit

We've enjoyed house sitting again for Rita in Colorado. They are coming back one day early so we're leaving a day early. That's okay. Nomads must be flexible! We're so flexible that a week or so ago we changed our plans entirely and decided to head back to California for a short visit. Fiona hasn't … Continue reading »

The Long Haul: In Retrospect

A year ago I wrote about the beginnings of our adventure. Then I wasn't sure exactly where we'd be in a year or if we'd even decide to leave behind a home and travel. I did know I wanted to do something different. So we packed up, drove up to Vancouver and spent a glorious … Continue reading »
