Weekly Wanderings #1 – Borrego Springs

Last Friday, January 15th was the official start of Project Escape, our year long adventure to escape corporate America; the expensive and crowded state of California; and reorient our life a bit. January 1 would have been a much cooler date to start, but with our Thanksgiving trip to France (to explain to my mother-in-law what the hell we would be doing the next year); an unexpected return trip … [Read more...]

Inside our RV Sneak Peek

Mr. Misadventures promises that once we get better light (it has been overcast and raining the last couple of days) that he will take professional photos of the interior of the RV.  In the meantime, I have taken a few shots with my iPhone, enough to allow a sneak peek and give you a "design" update.

We loaded up the … [Read more...]

And a month since we picked up our life and drove to Phoenix and while we are still prepping for our first trip in January there are a few things I've learned, four to be exact! Your sales guy is probably not a good driving instructor. We had the world’s best sales guy. I mean the best. He was cool, zen, provided no … [Read more...]

Intermission (Project Escape)

I believe life is a book. I guess that is why have always loved the quote from St. Augustine: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." Our lives are a series of chapters, one after the next. Some very distinct with beginnings and endings. Others have more vague or fluid transitions. Books are often turned into movies. Before when long books were made into … [Read more...]
