Auf Wiedersehen

As a new chapter in our adventures begins, another has come to an end. The end of this chapter was painful, having to say goodbye to Lexy and Pebbles. The German phrase, Auf Wiedersehen, roughly translates to: I hope to you see you again. This phrase is much better than "goodbye." Goodbyes are ...

Sailing to Eleuthera and Loving The Bahamas

We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into when we left Abacos. Our calm overnight sail down to Eleuthera turned into a rough and agonizing experience. After only 4 hours of an 18-hour journey we ended up having to drop our mainsail, roll in the headsail and turn on the motors... ...

We are buying a catamaran

It's official, we've made an offer on a catamaran; a stunning Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera! Yes, you read that right: we are trading in the wheels and roads for seas and SAILS! Do we know how to sail? No. Have we ever lived on a boat? No. Do we have experience living in tight spaces ...

Graceland in Memphis

We’re not huge Elvis fans. No wait, I take that back. We weren’t huge Elvis fans before visiting his house… but pretty sure we’re converted. We can’t stop listening to his music and for good reason - it’s awesome.Because we had to be in Nashville for May 9, we slowly made our way from Fort ...

Highlands Hammock State Park, Sebring FL

Road trip day! We removed the top from GoBe (our Jeep) and went exploring through South Florida. The sun was shining, the wind was fresh, and the puppies stayed watch of the house at Hickory Hammock Campground. The backroad from Lorida to Sebring is filled with orange trees as far as the eye can ...

Explorking Louisiana: Sightseeing in New Orleans & Area

During our stay in Louisiana, we decided to enjoy some sightseeing, instead of our usual quiet-spot-in-nature way of explorking. First, we rented a little house in Bywater for a few days, which was a great way to soak in the soul of New Orleans. It was nice to have reliable high-speed internet and catch ...

And then this happened…

We have been blessed with a seemingly never-ending supply of adventures and experiences. After spending $7,199.55 USD at the REV Service Centre in Alverado Texas, we were happy to get back on the road, heading toward the Gulf coast. After a quick stopover at Jacob's Well, we experienced some pretty intense vibrations when the ...

Jacobs Well, TX

We follow 188sqft on Instagram and they’d stopped by Jacob’s Well just a couple of days before we were headed down that way. It looked beautiful, so we decided to do the same! Jacob’s Well is in a residential area with very little maneuverability for a large 40-foot beast like us. We had to ...

Winchester Mystery House

The Winchester House is a very cool place to check out if you're in the San Francisco / San Jose area. The house, which is really a mansion, was built by Sarah Lockwood Winchester, the widow of William Wirt Winchester, who was the son of the Winchester Firearms Company founder. After William's death, Sarah ...

Jelly Belly Factory

The Jelly Belly Factory Tour was very interesting, it was also free, which is always nice. The factory is located in Fairfield, California. If you want more information about the tour, check out this page. Unfortunately, we chose a Sunday to visit the factory, and there was no production going on. We recommend you plan ...
