Five Things to Do on the Way to Glacier National Park

Before you get to the excitement and wonder of Glacier National Park, there are a few things you can visit and do on the way to the park. That's what I love about slow travel, it has really given Mr. Misadventures and I the ability to widen the ground we cover when visiting a specific spot. I know that most times we are on a timeline, but if you have an extra few hours on your way to or from the … [Read more...]


Currently | 9.20.16 Watching | New releases! > We rarely go to the movie theater anymore (something that we regularly did while we were stationary) so when new releases come out on video/stream on Tuesday, we are always anxious to check them out. We've recently watched The Jungle Book, Captain America Civil War, Money Monster and X-Men Apocalypse. Also, since we can't stream (those new … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #35 – Yellowstone

[Sorry for the delay! I had a technical issue that prevented me from creating or editing a post. I've had this puppy ready to go, just way of getting out!] We decided to cut our trip to Glacier National Park short (don't worry we were still the ten days) because we really missed the fabulous wildlife that you see practically every hour in Yellowstone. We drove 8.5 hours on Tuesday, it was a … [Read more...]

More RV Eating

DISCLOSURE: This post is brought to you by Sahale Snacks.  All opinions and food I eat are of my own choosing, but Sahale Snacks is seriously a huge part of our life! As promised when I wrote my original RV Eating post, I am bringing you an update about the trials and tribulations of our eating life on the road. Food is still a huge focus for me, it's just the manifestation of how we eat that has … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – Lavender Valley Farm

I love Instagram. Not only is it fun to share my misadventures from a visual perspective, but I also find great suggestions for places to eat, RV parks to stay in and things to see.  It was while I was perusing a PNW tag that I came across a photo from a lavender farm in the Mt. Hood area. I showed Mr. Misadventures the photo and told him we must visit it while we were staying in the Portland … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #34 – Glacier

We've been in West Glacier since last Friday. We survived the holiday weekend in the national park and have been enjoying daily jaunts inside the park, dancing around the weather as best we can. We went from the 90/100's in Missoula to 40/50's in Glacier and I love it! With cold weather the air is fresh and you can bundle up, so much better than sweating in the heat! Mountain weather is … [Read more...]

Exploring Palouse

  There were certainly lots of MISadventures on our way to Palouse, and a little mishap on our last day in the area, besides that we had a lot of fun in Eastern Washington. Palouse is the land of wheat and barley and lentils and garbanzo. No matter what the crop, in the summer just before harvest they are fields of gold. And if you get lucky, like we did, you get to see them … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – Bob’s Red Mill

I love Bob's Red Mill. Love them. Love them. Love them! Our local grocery store in Berkeley carried a huge amount of their products and we bought buckwheat flour to make crepes, waffle mixes and various beans to make soups.  We are big fans of the food, but I knew very little about the company. When we planned our itinerary for the summer we knew we were going to spend some extra time in … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #33 – Missoula

After the very eventful, and actually totally fun, week in Palouse, we rested for the weekend on the lake in Couer d'Alene.  We also continued to melt away.  We didn't do too much, sorry to say, and now we will need to go back to this part of Idaho to give it a proper visit.  We were just happy to have an RV park with 50 amp power so we could run the A/C on full blast! On Monday we had a nice … [Read more...]

San Francisco Profiles – San Francisco’s SoMA with Christine

Just because I left San Francisco to go on a sabbatical, doesn't mean I don't have this contagious city on my mind. After ten months on the road the closest thing to quenching my overwhelming desire for the culinary delights of the city by the Bay is Portland.  San Francisco just has so much to offer! One of my favorite neighborhoods by far is SoMa. I worked in the area for five years so I got … [Read more...]
