Almost a video a day 2015

This was by far the most exhausting year we ever had, but also the most rewarding. We completed our move to the states and into a motorhome, welcomed our newest family member and traveled from the east coast to the west coast. We met amazingly wonderful people and found out what we need to be happy. Music by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic ...

Solar

The decision to actually finally get some solar was made in one evening. We’ve been boondocking the last weeks and always had to leave because our batteries were drained. That hurts, especially with the campgrounds being $50 and more in this area. We do know how to conserve, but we still have to charge everything every 5-10 days, depend...

Mohave Desert National Preserve

We heard word that some fulltime families were meeting up in the Mohave Desert National Park and since it was the first chance for us to meet like minded people we decided to give it a try. We passed the last town, then the last gas station with $5 a gallon gas and $14 a gallon milk. We drove down 10 miles of washboard road to a campg...

Betty Mods – Kitchen

So we’ve been forced to remodel the bathroom. And we had the once in a lifetime opportunity to use a house for a week. So what better time is there to redo the kitchen? Well honestly, it was the only time. Kids could sleep in the house, no nosy hands leaving fingerprints all over the place. Ah well, and the fumes. So the man in charge w...

Betty Mods – Roof

Or: relationship status: it’s complicated. Like the husband said: You don’t want to post something like that, it’s like putting your relationship status on it’s complicated on facebook and who does that? But let’s start at the beginning: We were lucky enough to be parked at the midwife for the pre-birth, post-birth time. And we...

Betty Mods – Tires

Betty mods – the tires Problem number one wasn’t really a problem. When we bought Betty we already knew that the tires were pretty old and had to be replaced soon. Thanks to our tax refund we now finally got the possibility to at least exchange the front tires. Motorhome tires are truck tires and not cheap. We paid $350 per tire an...

Roadworthy

Our last days as quasi-residents of Stuart/Jensen Beach. Tomorrow we’ll really slowly start our journey to Miami and in a week we’ll pick up the parents. Then we’ll head up the Westcoast and head down the Eastcoast and then we’ll head up the Eastcoast again North Carolina bound, where we’ll pick up the next guest in September. ...

6 months later

Time’s flying and at the same time it feels like a lifetime since we had this other, this normal life. It’s been six months ( and a few days because I always wanted to write this post and then there was life) since a barely pregnant lady, a kinda tense daddy and a one-and-a-half-year-old with 3 suitcases, 2 backpacks and a way...

Migrant birds or not?

Well, that was shorter than we planned. Though you have to be fair, we didn’t plan anything. It was a nice trip anyways. Travelling, getting away, that’s difficult right now. Everything in us wants to head north, but we’re picking up visitors in Miami in five weeks. Every northbound mile gets us a mile in the wrong direction. We ...

Migrant Birds

After spending some time in Florida I noticed that birds aren’t the only ones migrating with the seasons. Sharks do, too (that’s why some beaches may be basically shut down for a couple of weeks at a time), Manatees (up North to the springs) and those winterbirds and their motorhomes. Though, we missed the departure time, we’re ba...
