$100 Redbox OR Netflix Gift Card

Mr. Misadventures and I have been using Netflix like crazy. However sometimes we can't stream and we see those little red boxes in the town we are staying and think, "we should grab a disc to watch on our player."  Both Netflix and Redbox definitely have their benefits and who wouldn't like to get $100 towards either? Prize: $100 Redbox OR Netflix Gift Card (winners choice) Co-hosts: Coupons … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #28 – Oregon Coast, Newport

After more than six months on the road nothing should surprise me anymore when it comes to RV sites. I tell you, each time we move, its truly an adventure - along with lots of misadventures - as to the quality of the place that will be our home for the week, a couple of weeks, or even a month. No matter how beautiful a site looks on a website, or how many great reviews it gets, the only way to … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #27 – Oregon Coast, Florence

Bandon was really beautiful, the rock formations on the beaches kept Mr. Misadventures entertained for hours. The town has a cool vacation vibe, the weather is absolutely perfect (for the Misadventures family) and the seafood is delectable. We've been eating rock fish and Chinook salmon almost everyday. Dungeness crab just about every other. We missed the whole dungeness season that we normally … [Read more...]

5 Things Star Trek Taught Me About Life

The third installment of JJ Abrams' Star Trek series lands in theaters this week and as a big fan, I am super excited. I think they have done a great job staying true to the original series, enough to satisfy most Star Trek fans, while also being creative. I think the cast was well chosen (so sad about the loss of Anton Yelchin who played Chekov), and despite some weaknesses in the stories, … [Read more...]


Currently | 7.18.16 Watching | Marco Polo. > I just finished the second season of this Netflix series and really enjoyed it. Mr. Misadventures was not as into it as Season 1. I think there is too much development going on for him and not enough battles, but we both agree that it is exceptionally filmed. The cinematography and acting are superb.  We are set to watch the last season of Game … [Read more...]

8 Years!

Misadventures with Andi is 8 years old! My fist post eight years ago was about my first day at work at Dolby. I wore navy blue tights with a black suit and the misadventures have never ended. Blogging has changed so much. I used to write and people read and commented and visited. The blogging world is a different world these days and there are millions of blogs out on the interweb and it is … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #26 – Oregon Coast, Bandon

This is the Oregon coast in the summer!  It's actually 65 degrees, but the wind makes it a lot colder! We just had a lovely picnic lunch in the sun (tomatoes are back in season!) and decided to walk on the beach to get a little exercise.  This is why I carry and wear layers all the time.  Underneath my jacket hood is a ski cap.  Ten minutes earlier I just had a t-shirt! Don't get me wrong, we … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #25 – Oregon Coast, Brookings

For the past few years I've wanted to drive from San Francisco to Seattle via the Oregon coast. Now we're doing it! But very slowly. We'll be on the coast traveling north for the next five weeks, getting over to the Portland area mid-August. We were very happy to escape the mosquitoes. The night Mr. Misadventures did a sunset shoot (and I stayed in the car) he missed spraying the upper right … [Read more...]

Oregon’s Painted Hills

If you find yourself driving in Central Oregon, perhaps between Boise and Bend, make sure you hit the Painted Hills. They are one of three parts (referred to as units) of the John Day Fossil National Monument. You can do the Painted Hills in a half day and it's totally worth the detour. We stayed five days in the area and explored all three units of the park. We preferred the Painted Hills … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #24 – Central Oregon, Crescent

We've been spent the week visiting the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway and Crater Lake area. I've got one word for this region: MOSQUITOES Okay there are a couple more words: lakes and lava. But seriously, the mosquitoes! They are the size of house flies and everywhere! My parents and I (okay, maybe it was mostly me) made fun of Mr. Misadventures when he bought these geeky … [Read more...]
