Healthcare in America- the BIG SQUEEZE!

I received a comment the other day about a post on healthcare and it got me thinking…

I am happy for you on your premium costs. You are the third person I know of fortunate to have that happen, including a cousin. I would, however, ask that you thank me. My premiums went up 45% [read more by clicking on title]

Affordable Healthcare or Bankruptcy- Which to Choose?

So for the first time in 7 years Hil and I will have healthcare March 1st of this year. Why now? Maybe the better question would be, “Why not sooner?”

The obvious answer, after 2007, we were broke and on the move. Health insurance is/was more expensive than the housing we couldn’t afford or the [read more by clicking on title]

2014- Heading down South to the Land of the Tacos

Who are you and Where have you been?

We have been silently absent for awhile on the blogosphere. I admit part of the reason was due to an incredibly busy work season this year with Young Guns Wild West Fun Park. This season we ended with 15 contracts at fairs. Compare that to last years [read more by clicking on title]

I’ve got the Wandering Blues

We are halfway through our work season with Young Guns Wild West Fun Park traveling through North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and Utah. We’ve been fortunate to have help this year. I have the son of my best friend growing up here to help me do the heavy lifting while Hil has a super [read more by clicking on title]

JC McDowell 2013 Summer Travel Route

We depart Tucson, Arizona early Wednesday morning to start our Summer Season. It looks like it’s going to be a great summer. We (crossing fingers) each have helpers/nannies joining us on the road to ease the set up and break down of the Young Guns Fun Park.

Below is MY route this summer. We are [read more by clicking on title]

Living on a boat: An attitude change that led to a latitude change

Guest Post by Ceal Potts

Ceal Potts and her mate, Kevin Wuertz, are refugee’s from the rat race whose disengagement was slightly different than our experiences- but the net result is the same. For those of you that might not wish to go flat broke in order to regain your life back, Ceal might just [read more by clicking on title]

What Works for Us Living on a Boat

I know, it’s a broad topic.

We live half the year on a 1994 Gemini 3400 Catamaran in the Sea of Cortez of Mexico with our two young girls ages three and five. We base out of San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico and we like cruising the Baja down to La Paz. We’ve made a lot [read more by clicking on title]

Gunkholing in the Sea of Cortez

It’s been a long time since we posted on the blog. We’ve been here in Mexico since the first week of February. We spent almost an entire month in the work yard. Not necessarily because we had a lot of work to do on the boat. It was so cold and windy! We built the [read more by clicking on title]

Are you a Hippy?

The word seems so archaic now. What does it really mean. This summer, surprisingly, that term came up a few times along our travels. I thought maybe we could dispel that myth.

Do you live in a Yellow School Bus?

No. Definitely Not! Talk about horrible fuel economy. While we travel we have a 2004 [read more by clicking on title]
