Originally New Englanders from Lexington, MA, we lived in the Atlanta area for about 25 years, but have moved back to New England (the seacoast in NH). No one moves north in retirement. Right?
We have traveled extensively in our Airstream to all the US contiguous states (and Alaska), as well as many of the Canadian provinces, and travel as often as makes sense, the weather encourages or the whim directs.
We have traveled and camped for years (picture below of my bride from our honeymoon in our rental camper in New Zealand years ago), from backpack camping, to car/tent camping with kids, to our Airstream.
We have always been outdoor-inclined, from camping, to skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, running – just enjoying the outdoors.
This blog is about our travels and adventures!
Back in the day our kids would camp and be seen with us (sometimes grudgingly). We are insanely proud of both our two kids, but today they are living their own dreams, and hopefully will enjoy careers, family life, travel, camping and other activities as much as we have.
Our traveling partner is Dottie. Dottie, like all of our dogs, comes to us used – from the pound. She is a Jack Russell Terrier (a “shorty”), seems to enjoy traveling with us, and we know she is a sweetie.
We have yet to travel to a place we did not love – what a beautiful country! If you have traveled, then you may appreciate our journey. If you have not, we hope you take some inspiration, comfort and interest in seeing where we have been and what we have done.
The photos on this blog are 99% my own. I primarily use a Canon 6D, although I will be the first to admit that this camera surpasses my own capabilities. And more recently, largely out of convenience and increased capabilities I have also been using my iPhone. Technology.
Your comments and/or suggestions are most welcomed. Safe travels to you, and hope you enjoy sharing in our journey!

Hi Brad and Karen. Very nice to meet you last night at Jimmy’s. If you get this way again and need a driveway to camp overnight just let us know. We would love to hang out by our campfire and hear of your travels. On Boondockers Welcome our site is “Riverside”.

Thank you – much appreciated!
Hi Brad (0: It’s David and Marlene from TCPC, we are almost to Alaska! BC and the Yukon are beyond beautiful, loving every day of this adventure! Just left Atlin, BC, a side trip worth experiencing if you want to see a small village set against the biggest fresh water mountain in North America!
Happy traveling, hope to see you again at TCPC one day. (0:

That is freaking awesome! So glad you guys are enjoying the trip. Keep us posted!!
Yo, Niles. Hey Cindy and I were just on a mini road trip ( I know, you would call it a Sunday Drive 😉 Sedona to Grand Canyon to Zion to Brice to Salt Lake City. I looked back through your calendar compendium and don’t see that route in your travels. Sunrise at Bryce Awesome! Almost as nice as Sunset on Lake Norman. No, you haven’t come for a visit here either, but we’ll leave a light on for you. You are welcome any time. Chow
Hey, we are at your house now – was a little disappointed in your liquor cabinet, but we loved your big screen TV and collection of fine china. Glad you had a great trip! We have been to those places, but would go back again in a heartbeat! Sunrises are not good for my zen state, but sunsets seem to work. Keep travelin’ pal!!!
Hello from Belfast, ME ! I saw a photo here I wondered if we could use for a Point Lookout promotion. I am Cara Fox at Pica Design 207 338 1740 ext 4# Please call and thank you!
Like we are part time RV’ers who travel with our beloved dog. We still have a sticks and bricks home in Coastal Georgia and have been traveling through the U.S. and Canada for almost ten years. Happy trails and safe travels!
Safe travels to you! It is a great way to see the country and meet great folks.
