Your American Dream is NOT my American Dream

I know we don’t have the picture perfect “Leave it to Beaver” American family lifestyle. We don’t have a “brick and mortar” residence, we don’t have traditional careers, we don’t have ANY savings or investments. We get an earful of flack about once a year from certain family members that just don’t understand WHY we [read more by clicking on title]

Wrapping up the Young Guns Season

It’s been a busy two months on the road. Hil and I each worked 4 fairs and we were supposed to be able to work the last fair together in Hamilton, Mt. Unfortunately, Hil hurt her back in Douglas, Wy at the Wyoming State Fair on the last day. She’s been in Jackson, Wy recuperating. [read more by clicking on title]

Stuck in West Yellowstone

We are almost to Bozeman for our first fair of the summer! Both our vehicles have been running great towing the trailers. We are currently stuck in traffic due to an accident ahead at the first peak enroute to West Yellowstone on I-20.

We still have 3 more hours to go to make Bozeman today.

Summer Route through the Rocky Mountains

We are wrapping up the packing and prepping for our summer tour. Everything is a wreck around my Dad’s house as we sort/pack/unpack/repack trying to prepare for ALL possible contingencies.

Still in Tucson…

There’s only so much daylight.

Getting the Van to a point we can use it in Mexico has taken more time than I would have liked. Part of the problem revolves only having so much daylight. It’s been cold here in the morning, so I manage to avoid going outside to work on the [read more by clicking on title]

FrankenSprinter Maiden Voyage

As usual, we were hustling to get on the road for the RMAF convention in Billings, Montana. I had spent the previous two weeks solid building out our 2004 Dodge Sprinter Cargo Van. It was previously owned by a baker in Albuquerque,NM and a dry cleaner before him. It had 118,000 miles on the van [read more by clicking on title]

We’re a Ramblin’ Family

We fly back to Tucson in the morning after a two week visit here in Maryland. We had a great visit with my mother, Hil’s parents, and childhood friends. We had our fill of celebrations including Emma’s fourth birthday! I even managed to get some work done and put together a marketing video for the [read more by clicking on title]

Going High Tech-Sort of…

It’s cold and rainy here in Maryland. That’s something new to us over the past two years. In the Rocky Mountains during the summer and even in Mexico in Winter it’s usually pretty dry. Nice change, but I like the low humidity. Of course, the fish taco’s and cold beer don’t hurt either.22

We have [read more by clicking on title]

A Short Break on the East Coast

We are in Maryland visiting family for about two weeks. This time constitutes about the only “down” time we’ll have this season.

We found a 2004 Dodge Sprinter diesel van with a 158″ wheel base and hi top (6′ head room inside) and we are actively trying to sell the motorhome. I have a lot [read more by clicking on title]
