My Blogging Tools – How I Get It Done

Over the eight and a half years that Misadventures with Andi has been around, I've had a lot of people ask me about what blogging tools I use to make the magic happen. To be honest, there are two parts to the answer. First, trial and error. Eight years is a long time and the tools that are available today - to do just about everything - weren't always there. I've used a lot of tools, both … [Read more...]

America’s Treasure – National Parks

[Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Application ESTA, but all opinions and experiences are my own.] One of the greatest gifts my year-long sabbatical has provided is a new found love for our national parks system. I had the opportunity to visit 21 National Parks, Monuments, Wildlife Refuges or Recreation Areas. And while that seems like a lot, Mr. Misadventures and I have only scratched … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #54 – Zion/On the Road

We have begun our final ascent north to Portland. (Say it isn't so!) The weather from now until February 1st looks good along our route so we are hoping for the best and taking advantage of the window we've been provided. But first, our week. Last Friday we escaped the inclement weather in the Zion area and headed to Page, Arizona to visit Antelope Canyon on the Navajo Nation reservation. We … [Read more...]

Valley of Fire State Park – Fire Wave and Pink Canyons

We have visited Valley of Fire State Park many times over the last few years. It continues to be one of my favorite parks, which is saying a lot because I'm not a huge fan of hot weather or the desert, although I do think the desert in the winter is spectacular. The park is an hour's drive from Las Vegas and we always try to come out whenever we go to Sin City. I used to go several times a year … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #53 – Zion

So Zion. As you know from last week's Weekly Wanderings we visited Zion National Park on Thursday in the rain to scope out shooting locations. On Friday it rained in the morning so we spent it in the St. George's Starbucks catching up on all things digital and then was checked out Snow Canyon State Park followed by a late afternoon-turned-sunset visit at Kolob Canyon. While we were doing … [Read more...]

Currently

Currently | 1.18.17 Watching | The Colony > I love this new show! Season 2 started this week, but I will have to wait until that's available on Netflix.  I feel like Josh Holloway hasn't aged a day since Lost, anyone else think so? Also catching up on episodes of Designated Survivor as well as downloading episodes of Top Chef Season 14, which I will start watching soon.  I like to watch … [Read more...]

Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park is well loved by people in Southern California and it's famous for its stars. Mr. Misadventures and I spent a long weekend in Palm Springs in 2011 and visited the park but didn't spend a ton of time checking out every nook and cranny. Joshua Tree had seemed to elude my hubby, we had thought to visit when we were staying at Borrego Springs but it was just too far a … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #52 – Las Vegas/Zion

52 weeks! Is it possible that we have been on the road one year? It is truly hard to fathom. I'm writing part of this post from the Starbucks in St. George, Utah because it's (a) raining and (b) the wifi in the RV park is not awesome...the story of my (current) life. We left the Palm Springs area last Sunday and drove to Las Vegas. The forecast for Monday showed rain, so after quickly setting … [Read more...]

Bosque del Apache Redux

The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is one of the many hidden gems in the National Park portfolio, I've been constantly amazed by the beauty that is every where in the United States, it's one of the things I have appreciated most about our year on the road. When we visited New Mexico in February I was surprised by how much Mr. Misadventures loved Bosque del Apache. I thought it was a … [Read more...]
