This month, we are house sitting in Glendora, California. We have two black labs, a pool, and the most beautiful home. What a life!
We've just wrapped up the first part of our American road trip, living the #vanlife from Florida to Idaho. Now it is time to begin Part Two: West Coast.
Between Yellowstone and Boise lies Craters of the Moon National Monument, a region of the Idaho desert filled with dormant volcanoes and fields of ancient lava beds. Having grown up in Idaho, we were both aware of Craters of the Moon, but had never actually visited before, so this was a natural next stop for... Continue Reading →
After an amazing couple of days spent hiking and looking for aliens at Devils Tower, it was time to move on to granddaddy of all parks, Yellowstone National Park. The farther west we travel, the larger the states become, and each leg of the journey gets longer. In this case, we had a 450 mile... Continue Reading →

This drive kept us on Interstate 90, where the views were nothing to write home (or blog) about. It was a short drive, one we spent doing crossword puzzles, debating on whether... Continue Reading →
We were so excited to visit Badlands National Park after having such a wonderful experience at Palisades State Park. South Dakota was proving to be an insanely beautiful state. We drove 288 miles (463 km) along I-90 and started our new audio book, Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut and read by James Franco. I was very skeptical about... Continue Reading →

We've been driving along I-90 since we left Chicago and will be following it all the way to Billings, Montana, where we will veer off... Continue Reading →
On #Vanlife Day 32, we left our lovely camping spot at 99 Bottles Winery and Vineyard to continue our road trip west. We drove 185 miles (298 km) to Palisades State Park near Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I couldn't find a ton of information about the park online, but it was a convenient stop on... Continue Reading →
