Keeping the Adventure Alive while Working the 9 to 5

Blog Posts

So we’ve been on the road for a month and a half now and have stayed in a WIDE variety of campsite locations and overnight options. There are paid campgrounds, free campsites in forests, Walmarts, Breweries, Casinos, and more. I figured It’d be fun to do a pros and cons comparison of all the different places we stayed between Florida and South Dakota.
When you think of BBQ, Kansas City is definitely one of the top cities that comes to mind. When we were planning our big US road trip, we wanted to integrate BBQ into the trip as much as possible. Originally we had the trip carving along the south through Texas but when we flipped it to go counter clockwise instead, we instead got to treat ourselves to Kansas City!
When we started planning this big US road trip over a year ago, we had the entire route planned out to leave in March and go clockwise along the south and then up the west coast from there. When we decided to postpone until September, we were forced to flip the entire route counter-clockwise and head north through the plains instead.
If you haven’t fell down the rabbit hole of RV Renovation on Instagram yet, you’re missing out. Last year during the beginning of the ‘rona, I spent much of my time daydreaming about escaping and adventuring. Kyle and I had begun this plan of selling the house and moving out to Colorado so we’d be able to explore the west for a few years. As the year went on and we started to realize the profit we could make off the house, the trip evolved and turned into a road trip!
Back in 2018, I was beyond excited to test out my new GoPro 5 for our big Iceland trip. Little did I know, that the file sizes were going to be too large for my computer to handle when I came home. I tried repeatedly to edit the footage only to have it crash on me over and over again and eventually just gave up.
I love a good old fashioned adventure diary post! Sometimes it’s nice to just share an adventure that I’ve had with friends without having to do too much research or compiling. So join me as I recap the camping weekend in Copake, NY that I had with some of my girl friends in June! Copake is located just over the Massachusetts border near the Catskill mountains so it’s easy to get to from Western Mass where a few of us live. We had good weather and it was the perfect combination of fun, activity, drinks and relaxation.
