Mt. Rainier National Park and the Emerald City

Tuesday we made the short drive towards Mount Rainier National Park and quickly arrived at Mounthaven RV Resort less than a mile from the entrance. And man, what a Haven it was.  The park is small with only a few RV spots and some small cabins for rent.  The bathrooms are nice and the trees are huge so the entire campground is shaded and cozy. It feels like a slice out of the national park but for your own personal pleasure.   With our convenient location we were able to go in and out of the park with ease. On Wednesday morning we got up early and headed in so we could make it to the Paradise Visitors Center

Our trail through Oregon

When you first drive into Oregon it’s the opposite of what you expect if you’re coming in from the east.  There is a lot of desert-ish area. But the more you drive into the state the more gorgeous and picturesque it becomes.  We quickly forgot about our view however as the sun went down on Sunday and we hit up the local Walmart for our nights stay.  But after 14 hours on the road we really didn’t care where we slept. Ahh, the good old days, right?

Craters of the Moon

We had NO IDEA that Craters of the Moon National Monument even existed until we started to plan our trip.  We looked on the map to see what National Park sights would be along our way and discovered it.  We didn’t have much expectation about it but we loved it so much.

Nebraska. Honestly, it's not for everyone.

Oh Nebraska, you are… well, you are full of corn and flatness is what you are.  We hit the road into Nebraska Wednesday morning and drove.  And drove.  And drove some more.  We saw corn.  And more corn.  And even more corn.

It starts......the 2019 Summer Roadtrip

Well ladies and gentleman we are back on the road and gone for almost two months this time.  We have been looking forward to this trip since we finished up our last long trip last spring and realize we are beyond fortunate (and insane) to be able to do something like this.  Its’ been a total of 72 hours on the road so far and we haven’t turned back yet.

Alaska

Winter in Alaska was something I had been looking forward to for quite some time (15 or so years actually). After having the opportunity to go in the summer a few times, I always knew I would be back for winter…I just hate that it took so long. When my good friends Justin and Amy announced the were moving to Anchorage last year I was pumped knowing that adventure was coming.

Livin' in a land Down Under

One of  things I love about what I do for a living is traveling to new places.  The way that I pack my gear is in a way that I can grab it and go whenever an opportunity arises.  Sometimes that’s just going out to check out a waterfall a few mins from home and sometimes that’s getting the call to travel literally to the other side of the world.

Roadtrip Fall 2018 - Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, D.C.

The day after we returned from Hawaii we loaded up the kids and the camper and we hit the road for another extended road trip.  This trip wasn’t near as many miles as our California trip in the spring but it was a still a few great weeks of National Parks and new experiences.

Hawaii - Oahu

Aloha!  I can’t believe we actually got to say that to people in a setting where it was expected! On September 11th I departed Alabama and Evan departed Canada.  A few hours later we met in Denver and got on our flight headed to Hawaii.  What was this life?  Who were we?  What would we do together without kids for 10 days?  It didn’t take us long to settle in and start to enjoy the ride.

The Home Stretch

KCMO was a a full 14 hours of fun. We were treated to some great BBQ and then went for custard because, duh.  We had a few hours of solid family time with some of the Lanier cousins and then slept like bricks.  We were back on the road to Arkansas the next morning to start the home stretch of our trip.

Amarillo by...midday??

Yesterday was a driving day.  We waited on the storms to clear for a bit in the morning and then started making our way up through Texas.  On our way out of Waco we indulged in kolaches (that spelling is probably WAY off) which is a fancy name for a big ‘ol pig-in-a blanket and are oh so divine.
