Rocky Mountain NP

The Rocky Mountain NP currently has a limited entry system. That means you have to buy an entrance permission in addition to regular park fees. Those permissions sell out super quickly, since they only allow 4500 cars in the park at any time. However, when you have a campground reservation, you don’t need an additional entrance per...

Southern Wyoming

After the fiasco of trying to find a spot with workable internet in and around the Tetons (joke's on us), we moved about two hours south to Soda Lake. The area is pretty enough for deserty Wyoming. Rolling hills sprinkled with sage bushes, a view of the Windy River range (which one day we’ll hike into), beautiful sunsets an...

Grand Teton NP

After Yellowstone we explored the Gand Teton NP, twice. Look, we really tried liking it. Everybody likes the Tetons, right? They're majestic and pretty and nature! But they’re also crowded as hell, internet is nonexistent and thanks to a million people not giving a crap about boondocking etiquette the spots are limited b...

South-East Utah and Page, AZ

[easy-image-collage id=2802] We planned on a quiet week at the beach until the Ford F-350 dually pulled up next to us and unloaded his construction generator and two beach buggies. There goes the neighborhood. So we were eager to explore a more quiet area rather than sit on the beach after work. Thanks to our neighbors (the nice ones,...

South-West Utah and Zion

Looking at our travel map of the last three and a half years it looks likes we’ve gone great lengths to avoid the state of Utah. It wasn’t like this. At least not great lengths. Just every spring when we planned to head into Utah we were so damn tired of the desert that we skipped right to the trees and mountains and meadows. And ever...

Almost a video a day 2015

This was by far the most exhausting year we ever had, but also the most rewarding. We completed our move to the states and into a motorhome, welcomed our newest family member and traveled from the east coast to the west coast. We met amazingly wonderful people and found out what we need to be happy. Music by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic ...

Solar

The decision to actually finally get some solar was made in one evening. We’ve been boondocking the last weeks and always had to leave because our batteries were drained. That hurts, especially with the campgrounds being $50 and more in this area. We do know how to conserve, but we still have to charge everything every 5-10 days, depend...

Mohave Desert National Preserve

We heard word that some fulltime families were meeting up in the Mohave Desert National Park and since it was the first chance for us to meet like minded people we decided to give it a try. We passed the last town, then the last gas station with $5 a gallon gas and $14 a gallon milk. We drove down 10 miles of washboard road to a campg...

Betty Mods – Kitchen

So we’ve been forced to remodel the bathroom. And we had the once in a lifetime opportunity to use a house for a week. So what better time is there to redo the kitchen? Well honestly, it was the only time. Kids could sleep in the house, no nosy hands leaving fingerprints all over the place. Ah well, and the fumes. So the man in charge w...

Betty Mods – Roof

Or: relationship status: it’s complicated. Like the husband said: You don’t want to post something like that, it’s like putting your relationship status on it’s complicated on facebook and who does that? But let’s start at the beginning: We were lucky enough to be parked at the midwife for the pre-birth, post-birth time. And we...
