Weekly Wanderings #55 – On the Road/Portland

It's been a tough week. If I had to label the mood, it'd be dispirited. Our frozen misadventures continued (having started last week) and I'm not talking the Disney movie kind. We only stayed in West Wendover two nights instead of three. The Bonneville Salt Flats in the winter are a bust. Or at least, this winter. The second night in our RV park, ours because we were the only ones there, the … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #22 – Central Oregon, Dayville

What a crappy week with a capitol “C.” I feel really bad writing that given the two horrific events that took place in Orlando this week (as well as the terrible shooting in Paris). But it’s the truth. Worst week thus far with the RV. We hit our 6-months on the road anniversary and to celebrate, our big guy (I know vehicles are usually female, but I get a male vibe from ours) decided to … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #11 – Bryce Canyon

Every week seems to be a little different, which keeps things interesting. We've had some stresses this week. Snow for four days straight, temps below freezing. A photo posted by Andi Fisher (@andi_fisher) on Mar 29, 2016 at 7:36am PDT We dealt with freezing temps before in New Mexico. At night we'd fill our water tanks, disconnect our hose from the park's water source and roll up … [Read more...]

Rest Stops, Ignition Keys and Slideouts

I promise I will come up with more original titles going forward, or hire my friend Katie of Domestiphobia who always writes killer, pull-you-right-in headlines! As I mentioned in my ‘Visiting the WeightMaster’ post, we had a very harrowing unplanned second trip from San Francisco to Phoenix. When we left San Francisco the first time we definitely did not plan to return, at least for a … [Read more...]

Misadventures in Being an RV Newbie

It has been just a little over a month that we have owned our new "home." 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...]

AFAR Experience Seattle – Misadventures in Foraging

After an exploratory morning at MOHAI and a fun stop at Love City Love, us AFAR Experiencers broke out into individual excursions for an afternoon of more intimate encounters with Seattle.  There were a lot of interesting options to choose from, but my heart stopped when I saw the name Langdon Cook. In May 2012 I came back from having the meal of a lifetime at The Willows Inn on Lummi … [Read more...]

Misadventures in Macro Photography

Who knew that macro photography could be so fraught with danger. Okay, maybe that is a little too dramatic. It's more likely that when you combine a total klutz (me) with learning a new skill (photography) and a propensity for taking photos up close things are just bound to happen. In reality most of my misadventures have had nothing to do with me being klutz which is a whole other aspect of life … [Read more...]

Misadventures in Macarons

I don't like macarons. There. I said it. I might now be banned from the francophile club! It is not for lack of trying.  I have tried macarons in Paris.  I have tried macarons in Tokyo.  I have tried macarons in San Francisco and San Diego. I still am not a fan. This morning I found myself at 10:30 on Victoria Street in London staring into a Ladurée's window.  One that was empty except … [Read more...]

(How to avoid) Misadventures in Blogging

I am quickly approaching the three-year mark for my little corner of the world.  And while there are many others who have been blogging for a lot longer, there are still a lot of new bloggers joining the community every day.  As I travel through the blogosphere on a weekly basis reading over 400 blog posts each week, I also see a lot of new bloggers making some simple mistakes which are very easy … [Read more...]
