Oh, hello there! Um... things have been much quieter than we intended here on the blog. It turns out that figuring out how to live, work, and get around in an RV has taken up much more time than we thought it would.
While we were getting ready for this trip, I imagined lots of evenings spent relaxing around the campfire. I pictured rising early to watch the sunrise with a hot cup of coffee in hand and I figured I'd have lots of time to put together informative and carefully crafted, weekly blog posts. (Heh!)
I think we've had maybe two or three campfires and relaxation has been minimal. And while there has been copious coffee drinking, I have yet to wake up before sunrise (although, Bill has had several pre-dawn photography outings). The one morning that we tried to eat breakfast outside, we we're quickly swarmed by mosquitoes. And, well, the blog posts definitely haven't been weekly.
Even though the hoped for romance of the situation and the reality of things are not quite the same, we've been to some wonderful places, met some really interesting people, and seen some amazing things. I don't regret setting out on this adventure even the tiniest bit.
We spent the month of June at home in Colorado where we took care of some business-y kinds of things (including a quick trip to NYC for me) and did lots of hanging out with family and friends. Now we're back on the road and are working our way north.
With six months of RV life under our belts we have a much better idea of what works and what doesn't. We've made some plans and goals for the next few months, one of which is to share more about our travels and to keep this blog more up to date.
In an attempt to catch up on the last few months we'll do a series of short posts about some of the places we've visited. And I'm also hoping to do a post or two about what it's like to live and work in an RV. Stay tuned for those catch-up posts, but for now, here's a glimpse of our last couple of days in Cody, Wyoming.
We hope you've been well, wherever you are!
PS: If you're ever in Cody, Wyoming, be sure to visit the Buffalo Bill Center of the West! They have a wonderful natural history museum, an extensive exhibit about the life of William F. Cody (aka Buffalo Bill), a great Western Art museum, and not-to-be-missed exhibits on the history of the plains indians.
