When we started this blog in 2011, it was a place for us to plan and to dream. We knew we’d be taking an extended trip through the West and we wanted a place for friends and family to be able to follow our exploits.
As we got going, we realized that there were people out there who found our trials and tribulations helped them to plan their own trips. Fixing Bubbles in RV Wallpaper was an especially popular post!
You’ve probably noticed that the past few months we haven’t posted nearly as much as before. This is in part because we’re not traveling quite as much, but it’s also because we have new and exciting things going on in our lives. While on the trip in 2012, Bret and I wrote a book called Investing in Your 401k Kid: From Zero to Little Financial Genius in Five Easy Steps. Right now we’re focusing on the website and marketing surrounding that project and are pleased to say we’ve gotten an even better response than we’d hoped. You can find out more about that here.
We’d considered taking down this site, because nothing bugs me more than stale sites, but we realized there is a certain amount of value that other families planning big trips can find here. We also know that our traveling time is not done, just on hold for a bit.
So, if you’re coming to our site for the first time, I hope you find info that helps you and maybe makes you laugh occasionally. If you’ve been with us for awhile, maybe you want to move over to our other site which is kept much more current. Know that we’ll be back. We haven’t left, we’re just on a different track for right now.
Oh and Lewis is still going strong. He took us round-trip to Florida in October with nary a hiccup. Clark is parked and stored safely away for the winter where we are on a constant battle to protect him from the evil mice who want to take him over. They’ll be back (Lewis and Clark, not the mice), maybe sooner than you think!
