Our 2023 epic travel adventure

This photo is again from K'esugi Ken Campground viewpoint. It is a seperate photo but at the campground you loose some size perspective that you get with the normal picture taken from Denali Viewpoint South.

Our epic 2023 travel adventure took us further north and south than ever before, and in 2023, we also went further in less time than ever. I haven’t yet finished telling you about our summer adventure to Alaska, and it is already the holiday season. We visited the most remote places, and for the first

Quinault Rainforest and Kestner Homestead

Quinault Kestner Homestead

The Quinault rainforest and Kestner Homestead are at the southwest corner of Olympic National Park, the park’s newest part. Positioned northeast of Lake Quinault, the Kestners tried to carve a farm out of the rainforest and eventually failed. It wasn’t for lack of effort or associated with lack of water—after all, it is a rainforest.

The End of the Road

Scott and Tami at the end of the road.

We made it to the end of the road. Starting in Key West in January our goal was to cross the country from corner to corner. We made it all the way. Perhaps in a couple of years, we will repeat the adventure of crossing from San Diego to the far northeast corner of Maine.

Amazing Fort Worden

Fort Worden

Fort Worden shouldn’t be mentioned without mentioning its sister forts. Fort Worden, Fort Casey, and Fort Flagler were linked together as if they were one fort. This was because they all had one task. They created a crossfire that defended Puget Sound from a Naval attack. These forts, all acted as one, even though miles

July 2022 heat dome

RVing in a Heat Dome isn’t fun. There I go again, complaining about the weather. Yes, the problem was all self-induced. Our goal for the year was to travel and have fun while crossing the lower 48 states from the tip of Florida in Key West all the way to Puget Sound in the far

We have been trying to outrun the smoke for about two weeks now. The

We gave up on going to Idaho. Too much Smoke in Washington. Our plan was to cross eastern Washington, stop in Spokane and then to Northern Idaho, maybe crossing into Montana. There are just too many fires and too much smoke. We decided, we have wheels and we can find some clean air  — somewhere.
