The end of the RV season is upon us. After over 8,000 miles of travel in 2018, Stevie the Bus is now officially in storage for the rest of the winter.

Formula 1 Road trip!
Preparation and planning for this trip really paid off. The bus ran flawlessly through all 2245 miles round trip. With all rain in the forecast, we drove on dry roads for all but the last 2 hours of the trip as we headed in toward Circuit of the Americas near Austin, Texas. We sat through... Continue Reading →
Dealing with anxiety…
Each day I wake up to some new thing to be anxious about. It used to be overwhelming at times. Did I turn off the lights when I left the house, is the alarm set, did I lock the front door, did Canary really identify that I left the house or is it still in... Continue Reading →

Breathe in.....breathe out.....now, breathe in again..... Spent all weekend breathing in the amazing vibes of Bonnaroo, I don't want to waste it hurrying back to reality.

On our way to Bonnaroo and just left Clifty Falls State Park, Indiana. Traveling into Kentucky on some roads that had an eerie resemblance to some roads we were on twenty years ago. Driving down two-lane country roads that were barely wide enough for the RV, Suzy stated, "I'm feeling anxious." Strange, because I also... Continue Reading →
