The Top 5 Things We Have Learned


  1. The sun bleaches leg hair.

Well, only the hair on the top side. Mark sort of looks like a walking household laundry accident.


  1. We activate stop lights.

You will see a lot of cyclists run stop lights because they don’t weigh enough to activate the signal pads.  We have enough junk in the trunk, it’s no problem.

  1. Reverse tans.

Before anyone else gets a chance to give this type of tan a name, we are going to officially call it the Reverse Tan!  Any guesses on how this happens?!


  1. We look like we are wearing socks, even when we aren’t.

Soon, we should be able to draw little seams on our toes and complete the illusion.

  1. Salad tastes better when consumed in grocery store parking lots.

Maybe it’s the atmosphere, but the vegetables are crunchier and tastes more vibrant.



After a break visiting family (so fun!) and doing a little bit of income-generating work, we are back on the road!  Our original plan had us visiting the Florida Keys, but for various reasons we only went as far south as Miami and are now heading back north.  Once we get to St. Augustine, we’ll head west.

We plan to spend Thanksgiving on the panhandle, followed by New Orleans in mid-December.  It will be a chance to see some friends and well, take it easy in the Big Easy.  Since our plan is to stay south all winter, we don’t want to be in too big of a hurry riding across the Southern Tier states.  From New Orleans we’ll cross Texas, stopping in Austin, then on to Phoenix before turning northeast and aiming for Utah and Colorado sometime around April.  There is so much adventure ahead!

If you are along our route and are interested in meeting up with us, please let us know!  We are always looking for hosts and for folks to just chat with and swap stories!


Mark, Georgia, Junebug and Biscuit

    I just saw you all leave Gamble Rogers with your trailer of dogs. In fact we saw you all walking your dogs around camp several times but didn’t know about your trip. Good luck and safe travels! We are the RV with the 3 border collies!
