So after saying our goodbyes last night (which was not fun!) we hit the road this morning to Texas. We woke up early today and finished packing the last few things into the U-Pack trailer and our two vehicles before heading out. We decided to take the route down through California, Arizona and New Mexico.Continue reading
On Thursday, November 4th, we listed our home for sale and then headed south. We had to get our motorhome down to Texas and wanted to do it before the weather got too bad. Plus, Lacie didn’t want to stress about keeping the home clean for showings — and with four kids that’s nearly impossible if we’re living there.Continue reading
We took a week-long vacation to Tamarack this winter and had so much fun. My sister works at the resort there so we got to hang out with her, so that was cool. Plus, our friends Mikael and Hannah came out for a few nights and stayed at the chalet with us so that was fun too. I blogged a little about each day below.Continue reading
Last night I decided to go for a hike around Battle Ground Lake. During my walk I scouted out the RV sites. I found a couple open ones and then called Lacie to see if she wanted to take the RV out and go camping!
She said yes. So I drove to town to get some food and snacks for the kids and then went home and helped her load up the motorhome. We got there just before dark and set up camp. The kids loved it!Continue reading
We got our RV detailed yesterday and after seeing it all cleaned up today it made us want to take it camping! Especially after realizing we had a couple sunny days in the forecast.
So after the guys finished doing their detail work, Lacie and Loretta packed up the RV while I finished my work. I had a 45-minute call with a client about a potential new partnership, which went well.Continue reading
We went to a cabin on Mt. Hood for a few days with our family, Loretta, Gunner, Chloe, Ben, Daniel, Sarah and Jake. It was so fun and I plan to post pictures of the cabin soon. But what I’m most excited about is how awesome Emma did on her first snowboard trip!
Here’s how it went…
Logan and Danielle watched the kids tonight so we could go on a date!
We left the RV Park around 4:30 and then went to Nordstrom Rack so Lacie could do some shopping. I found a cool laptop backpack while I was there.
Then we drove to the surprise dinner place… Hotel Del Coronado! Someone told me this was “the place” to go for a nice dinner. And they were right. It was pretty awesome.
The food was amazing and the view was beautiful. And Lacie looked gorgeous!
On Saturday, Aug. 27 we packed up our RV, left Yacolt, WA and decided to see how far south we could make it on Day #1 of our big trip.
We ended up driving 155 miles (about 3 hours) and stopped at Deerwood RV Park in Eugene, OR.
When I told Emma, my co-pilot in the RV, we were in Eugene she asked, “We’re going to Flynn Ryder’s place!?” (Flynn Ryder aka Eugene Fitzherbert from Tangled).
We’re on Day #20 of living in motorhome (if you missed our last post about how we purged our stuff and moved into the RV you can read it here).
First, let me share with you where we are… after 20 days we’ve made it all the way to Yacolt, WA (for all you non-locals, Yacolt is only 45 minutes from where we were living (see photo and map below).
