I bought about $250 worth of gear at Academy Sports. I still have some stuff to get...special Mosquito spray, 30+ sunblock, some clothes, and some items to donate to the Haitian people. I feel I am well on my way now. I got a pretty sweet Swiss army backpack. You can see some of the contents of my gear here: duct tape, gloves, toilet paper, swiss army knife, flashlight, survival kit(s), bible etc. Eat your heart out Rambo!... read more

I lost my passport. I tore my house inside and out. It is crazy because I am the most organized and clean person I know. I have not used my passport since 2006 when I went to South Africa on a safari. I ordered a new one. It arrived in 2 weeks. $150 later. Apparently, the new passports are scanable. At the postal office I met an interesting couple moving to Alaska. They are driving the whole way! Oh well...first item taken care of.... read more

Well night one is done and over and now it officially feels like we're back on the road. Oh how I've missed sleeping at Wal-Mart but I must say this one is pretty nice. I woke up at 7:00 am this morning and began my on-the-road workout which consists of sit-ups, side twists and a little weight lifting. And I do mean "little", the weights are only 5 pounds each, but hey, anything is better than nothing, right ?? I had a small bowl of Special K and then took a COLD shower. Tim was still sleeping and I totally forgot to cut the hot water heater on when I first woke up. Oh well, it really wasn't that bad because it had been in the 90's the day before so the water was kinda warm. ... read more

Well.........after months of trying to decide whether or not to take a trip across the country this Summer, we finally decided we would give it one more shot. After a very long and grueling week of mishaps, minor household catastrophies and an unexpected medical emergency, we are officially on the road !! There's no turning back now so watch out America, HERE WE COME ! We spent the week battling the swimming pool, trash compactor, septic tank system and worst of all, the county tag office. Somehow we managed to survive, get the motorhome packed up and head on out to see this great big awesome place we call home. We worked until the wee hours of the morning getting bills paid, cleaning the house, threatening Kayla's life and preparing our house on wheels for our ... read more

Geo: 34.7486, -92.2745Entering Arkansas from the west you are into Ozark country. We got off the I-40 at Ozark and drove part of the Pig Trail which is a popular route for motorcycle riders.Very scenic with lots of abandoned farms as well as country estates hidden in the trees. Back on th I-40 we passed a large lake. It is so nice to see hills and green again after days of flat and brown. We got lost finding our hotel in Little Rock and ended up in a neighbourhood which we decided was not a good place to be. There were many nice older homes most in disrepair but some were being restored. Obviously the area had at one time been a nice area. Eating at restaurants is very reasonable. Wages for waiters are very low ... read more

Welllll helllooooo! So I've been getting quite a bit of grief about not keeping this journal up to date. But in all reality, I haven't been doing too terribly much. I work about 25 minutes away from where I live, so I go to work, come home, play with my puppy and go to bed to start it over again. I am still having a good time at my job, it is starting to get a little hectic unfortunately. Lots of clients and only one me. I'm getting the job done though, like I usually do. I am starting to put my foot down on some topics though, because I am only one person and they don't want to pay me any overtime. Sooooo that's been interesting getting that all worked out, but I have and ... read more

Well my first night in Arkansas was officially Friday the 21st of August. My best friend April and I made the 8 hour trip with a Uhaul trailer and my dog Kubby, without anything really exciting happening. The first thing we noticed about Arkansas was the foliage, and that it was much flatter than I had anticipated. There weren't as many trees or rock that I had expected to see, although, I do believe we were just not in the right part of Arkansas to see those things. When we arrived in Benton Arkansas we drove by the house my company had arranged for me to live in, it was getting dark but the house was not all that impressive, in fact it was rather scary. It is across the street from active railroad tracks, it ... read more

Today, we drove from Memphis to Little Rock. On the way, I fulfilled my dream of going to Graceland! I've been wanting to go there for years now. It was a blast. We saw a fair amount of Elvis' jumpsuits, his uniform from when he was in the service, and his house. Inside his house we saw his parents' room, his racquetball room, and everything else except the upstairs because that level of the house was always private when he was alive, and they've kept it that way ever since! In the backyard, there is a pool, fields for the Graceland horses, a water fountain, and his parents', grandma's, twin brother's, and Elvis' graves. We bought an Elvis mug, some postcards, and a biography of Elvis. Mom's favorite part of the experience was looking inside the ... read more
