Achievement Unlocked

Neighbors. Sometimes they’re awesome. Other times, they’re …not. This tale is about one of those neighbors that fell in to the latter group. About 2 months ago, we got a new neighbor, “Mike” and...


A Roaming Echo

In the past Courtney and I have discussed the value of having a digital home-assistant like the Amazon Echo. Would it be something useful in an RV (or even a tiny home) or would it be something we’d hold off purchasing if we decided to take root somewhere in a sticks and bricks domecile?

A Mighty Wind

Earlier this summer, the local fire and rescue put on a helicopter demonstration. We were warned that the helicopter creates a very powerful wind (more than you might think. TV and movies lie!). What...


Dripping Springs

While we were workamping in Las Cruces, NM we took a day trip to Dripping Springs and explored (what remains of) Dr. Nathan Boyd’s Tuberculosis Sanatorium. Dr. Nathan Boyd studied medicine in San Francisco....
