"Life sometimes gets in the way of writing." - Jean M Auel
Two months is too long to not have written a post. We've been busy and a lot has happened during our little hiatus. Tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I want to pause for a moment and give thanks. I am grateful for the beauty around me, my friends and family, my new found RV online community and a wonderful plan for living simply and turning our love of camping and hiking into a full time adventure.

We have a number of years of part-timing before we get to hit the open road for good. But, while we are in our sticks and bricks home, we know we are very lucky to live in such an amazingly beautiful place. There are so many opportunities for daily hikes and exploration here in Northern New Mexico.
