We left bright and early Sunday morning at 4:55 AM to be exact, and we were on the road. 400 miles almost exactly and we got to Liberty Lake by noon. It took us seven hours to go 402 miles with one gas stop and one rest stop. Liberty Lake Regional Park is a beautiful… Continue reading Liberty Lake, WA – We’re here, we’re watching the solar eclipse and Henry will never be the same.
Where we're going, and what we're doing for the next 38-40 days or longer.
So, we are feverishly getting ready for our epic road trip, which means my "checklisting nerdiness" is in full glory (or perhaps rearing it's ugly head is a better description). I've got 4 checklists that I'm working with, and that doesn't include what I'm doing for meal planning and grocery shopping. I've got a Packing… Continue reading Making a list, checking it twice – the blessing (and the curse) of checklists
Not sure if I've mentioned it or not, but we're getting ready to go on an epic (at least epic for us) road trip. We're looking at being gone at least 38 days and perhaps 40 or more depending on how things are going. And we're hoping we've got all of the kinks worked out… Continue reading We’re going where? and when? How are we getting there? Planning our adventure.
It happens to everyone, you're driving down the road and you see that sign with a big arrow! "Stop here to see the largest ball of twine in the world." How can you pass that up? Of course, you have to stop. OH NO!!! As you pull up, you see a sign that says "no… Continue reading How about a portable AC for Fido? (MacGuyver would be proud!)

And so far in 2017 from January thru May 57,585 fires burned 2,763,464 acres burned which are 48.0 acres burned per fire.… Continue reading How much wood could a woodchuck burn if a burn ban wasn’t in place? And the beauty of propane fire pits.
Electric bikes - they're all the rage now and Thom and I jumped on the bandwagon early. We were on a vacation in Hawaii and decided renting electric bikes would be a good way to see the island. And we were hooked but a little intimated by the prices. The bikes were pretty expensive and we… Continue reading Let’s talk E-bikes
How many of you get tired of poor quality items on your motorhome? Today, for us, it's CLIPS! You know the ones that hold your basement doors open for you? We have gone through numerous clips. It seems like we always had one that was broken and we always kept extras "just in case." I… Continue reading Just clip it!
Whew ... yes, we finally finished stripping the striping off Myles, our DTV (Dog Transport Vehicle). Remember what Myles first looked like when we bought him? The striping Myles has was making him look old and aged, so we decided to remove it and went through the process in Myles – Dog Transport Vehicle (DTV) –… Continue reading No more stripping!!!!
We've thought for a while now that Myles' faded and cracked striping made him look a lot older than he really is, especially with Larry looking so young and vibrant. ... so it's time for a facelift. And it's been quite the project. It took mainly three types of products to accomplish this task. 3-M… Continue reading Myles – Dog Transport Vehicle (DTV) – getting a face lift
