Saying yes

by Kim August 12, 2014

I don’t know how it started but in the months since Brian and I came back to the U.S. and began our 7-month trip around the country we’ve developed an unspoken agreement. We accept any invitation that comes our way.

My essential car camping gear

by Kim July 21, 2014

It’s hard to believe that Brian and I have already been on the road for 4 months (only 90 days left!). I’ve put together my list of essential car camping gear. This is the stuff I’ll never camp without again.

Life is fluid

by Kim July 13, 2014

One of the best things I have taken away from my study of Buddhism is the knowledge that life is fluid. Obviously, I knew this on some level, but it has been important for me to realize that I am predisposed to think that once something is a certain way it will be like that forever.

Lately. Scenes from Acadia National Park.

by Kim July 3, 2014

This time, I have tried to face the stress head on, to meet the discomfort, concern and the anxiety at the door, to swing the door wide open before it even knocks. I am trying to do the brave thing, to ask the hard questions. But I am filled with doubt.

It is all real life

by Kim June 24, 2014

We drove and drove. The traffic thinned. The trees grew dense and billowing, so green and alive in the sunshine. Hours passed. We got hungry and pulled off at the first exit we came to. It was the exit for Sandy Hook, the home of the 2012 school shootings, where 26 people, mostly first grade children, were gunned down in their classrooms during the morning announcements.

Little Talbot Island, Florida

by Kim June 11, 2014

Some cities/towns/campsites/shit holes we love and others we can’t leave fast enough. And we never really know what we’re getting in to until we arrive. Sometimes that works against us and sometimes, like now, we are delightfully surprised.

Searching for the manatee

by Kim June 8, 2014

Searching for the manatee. In the saltwater marshes that surround Little Talbot Island there is only one subject, one star, an elusive manatee.

The things I did(n’t) do in Nashville, Tennessee

by Kim May 15, 2014

We might not have done Nashville the right way but it was good enough for me. See, when you live in a tent an overpriced hotel by the highway feels like The Ritz. It’s all about perspective my friends.

A stake on the map: 1 month in a tent

by Kim April 20, 2014

It’s been about a month since we left on this adventure and I’m happy. I love sleeping in a tent and waking up to the sunshine streaming in and the birds singing in the trees.

Enough about you, let’s talk about me

by Kim April 10, 2014

When we travel internationally and meet other Americans they are travelers too. They tend to understand why we are out exploring the world. Now that we are back in the states there are less people who get it and more who ask us how we are surviving. They want details.

Stuck on Wasatch Mountain

by Kim April 6, 2014

The plan was to visit Bryce Canyon National Park. But, friends, we are still in the midst of The Never-Ending Winter and it is cold outside. Camping in below-freezing temperatures and snowstorms does nothing for me. So we’ve changed our plans.

Reporting from the other side of our first presentation (WE SURVIVED!). Plus, a visit to Arches National Park.

by Kim March 31, 2014

It’s been just over a week since we hit the road. We’re at the beginning of a brand new adventure and I’m not sure how I feel. On one hand I feel a bit crazy because of the driving, the camping, the packing and unpacking, the wild moving around. It’s a bit of an effort to find my chi.

On the road again

by Kim March 23, 2014

We said our goodbyes to our families and our dogs. We shed a few tears. And then we started driving. Driving, driving, driving. We camped last night in Missouri. We set up the tent and rolled out our sleeping bags and then we went for a short hike. “Hey,” Brian said, “we’re working right now!”
