Weekly Wanderings #42 – On the Road in Florida

We left (ran actually from) Red Bay on Saturday. By all rights we should had stayed a few more days, but we couldn't take it anymore and the remaining things we wanted fixed can wait.  Because we needed to be in Orlando on Friday (for our engine to be serviced - getting an appointment was an ordeal in itself ) we decided to take the southern coast route.  A night in Mobile (Alabama), three … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #41 – Red Bay

Our third week in Red Bay.  And the last. We should be staying longer, but if we did we would lose our minds. So we're giving up some minor items we had on our wishlist and one item that can be done by a dealer.  Anything to get out of here. I am a reformed yeller, I gave that up in my early thirties. But like any bad behavior sometimes you can be placed into an environment where that little … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #40 – Red Bay

We completed our second week in Red Bay. Red Bay is in a very rural part of Alabama, right on the Mississippi border.  There is not a lot to do and we are basically sitting on an old airstrip that has been converted to a "campground" for RV's waiting for repairs.  There are 93 spots for RV's and at the moment the grounds are nearly full. October is a very busy month for them. Without (working) … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #39 – Red Bay

We made it to Red Bay where we will be here a few weeks for RV repairs. Jessica passed away this week, so I know you will understand if I am unable to write more in this edition. Current location: Allegro Campground, Red Bay, Alabama. Photo credit: RV Wanderlust Save … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #38 – On the Road!

On our last night in Yellowtone we were clouded out for star photography so we decided to do one last tour of Lake Yellowstone and find some place to have our dinner by sunset.  On the way to the lake we came upon a bear jam in Hayden Valley, something we had not seen the whole three weeks we were in the park. Boy, were we in for a treat!  A mama grizzly and her two cubs! They are so beautiful … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #37 – Yellowstone

Last week in Yellowstone! Then we have to go back to the real world of highways and freeways and retail malls.  At least for five days until we get to rural Alabama for RV repairs. But let's not think about that quite yet! Over the weekend we did some sunrise and early morning shoots, but got fogged out or clouded out. There are so many micro-climates in the park, the weather is unpredictable.  … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #36 – Yellowstone

Hey! We're still in Yellowstone! Our one week has turned into two.  Mr. Misadventures is like a kid in a candy store and why take a year off from work if you can't go where you please from time to time! We're actually staying through October 2nd when we will make a five day beeline for Red Bay.  Until then, the Yellowstone fun continues. After four straight days of very early mornings, 6-8 … [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...]

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...]
