Well Hello Idaho

Day 9 Starting mileage: 5861.2 The trains ran almost all night and when I say all night, I mean ALL NIGHT.  I’m wondering if that’s the reason why they don’t charge to stay at that campground. When I woke up and crawled out of the tent, I found the fly was completely coated in ice. […]

Leaving Nevada

Day 8 Starting mileage:  4938.1 Even though I was awake earlier than usual, I guess the little green men running through my mind wore my brain out and I was lazy getting out of bed.  That and the fact that I was squished onto a bed since, heaven forbid, the dogs sleep on their blankets […]

Watching for Lights in the Sky

Day 7 Starting mileage:  4361.9 I was woken up a few times during the night when vehicles pulled into the lot but I didn’t hear anyone walking so I’m not sure what they were doing.  When I climbed out of the tent, I noticed that there was a rock dwelling at the opposite end of […]

Is There Life on Mars?

Day 6 Starting mileage: 3726.7 It was still raining when we woke up and even though the dogs are delicate and made of sugar, they wanted a quick walk despite the risk of them melting.  And then we continued the search for Ted’s Tacos from the previous night.  Now even though I had the exact […]

In Search of the Yellow Brick Road

Day Three Starting mileage: 1579.0 It seems that long days of travel are good for my sleep and the alarm jolted me awake.  We went for a short walk around the motel and as the dogs ate their breakfast, I turned to Yelp to find mine.  There were two highly recommended places and after getting […]

Through Michigan and Beyond

Starting mileage: 620.0 km I slept like a champ and then took the dogs for a quick walk.  We were walking by a furniture store and saw a sign posted in what looked like a loading dock that said “No Parking Except for Bob”.  I wanted to wait until later and ask who Bob was […]
