So in an attempt to get caught up, I present you now with a very long, picture-heavy post that covers some highlights of our time from May – Dec 2017. Get ready. After Yosemite, we headed straight back to the coast … Continue reading Very long catch-up post

We headed first to Grand Junction, where we had an appointment to have our transmission checked out by an Allison Transmission service center.

Since we had dry camped for several days, we needed to … Continue reading Colorful Colorado, and our first boondocking experience!
