Project Discover Week #6

This week we are discovering the inside of a hotel room! Remember that little trouble we ran into in the snow in Idaho our last week on the road? Well, our RV is now in the shop getting repaired. Does anyone else hate the whole chicken/egg game between insurances and body shops/garages? Someday we will get our rig back and we can go to the RV park and continue our job search in peace! Until then … [Read more...]

Currently March 2017

Currently | 3.16.17 Watching | Top Chef  & Movies. > I finished Top Chef Season 14.  I was in it until the end (sometimes on previous seasons, my interest would wane at the end), the last few episodes were nerve-wracking as the last 4/5 were all veterans from previous shows that I loved. Can't wait for Season 15! At night before we go to bed, Mr. Misadventures and I are watching … [Read more...]

J’adore – My Favorite RV Lifestyle Gear – Wardrobe Edition

Now that I shared some of our trip highlights and I gave you a peek into our budget, I thought I might share some of the gear that made Project Escape enjoyable. The most important part of RVing, except for all the fun you are going to have in it, is what you put in it.  The two critical things you have to take into account is limited space and weight restrictions.  One of the most dangerous … [Read more...]

Project Discover Week #5

Since we arrived in Portland on February 1st, every week seems a little different.  It's hard to get into a routine, which would usually be just fine, but Mr. Misadventures is studying for a certification so it kind of screws up his study schedule.

Monthly Blog Goals: March 2017

I may not be doing a lot of discovering of Portland or exercise, but the third leg of the triangle known as Project Discover is getting plenty of attention.

Project Discover Week #4

We hit our one month anniversary in Portland! Arriving here, we have had a bit of baptism by fire. It has rained almost every day we've been here for some part of the day. My family was stationed in Washington state during my last three years of high school, so I remember what winter is like. But, it's been awhile since either Mr. Misadventures or I have experienced a real rainy season.  It's … [Read more...]

Project Escape Recap: Trip Highlights

Making the decision to pull the plug on our current life to take a sabbatical wasn't easy.  But once we decided Project Escape was a go, things moved fast. We sold our house, our cars, some furniture and we quit our jobs. We bought an RV and a Jeep and headed out on the road. I think our friends and family truly thought we were nuts. But in our minds, big risk equaled big reward.  We didn't … [Read more...]
