December 2018 By The Numbers

December 2018. It is time to wrap up our last month with numbers again! I like numbers. They can be fun. And when you start breaking things down into numbers they can become especially insightful or sometimes just plain weird. Here are a few fun number facts I found on the internet: 67.8 – In …read more

November 2018 By The Numbers

November 2018. Hola Todos! We are currently in Sinaloa Mexico just north of Mazatlan. Today we bring you another installment of Nomading by the Numbers where we count up all the interesting, curious or sometimes mundane things we did the past month that didn’t really fit into a blog post but will hopefully give you …read more

The Dentist & A Parade

November 17 – 22, 2018. A friend recently told us that he’d rather have dental surgery than spend Thanksgiving with his family. In the spirit of letting other people live their lives vicariously through us, Greg did just that. Earlier this year, in February Greg, had visited the dentist in Los Algodones, México and we …read more

Gold Butte

April 13 – April 14, 2018. Greg was jonesing to get to Utah. He had been talking about Utah since we were in Baja. “Yeah, all these beaches and stuff are nice, but what I really want to do is go look at some rocks in Utah,” he would tell me. If you haven’t figured …read more

Rocks and Movies

April 4 – April 10, 2018. When we got back to the US we had no plan, well except to do almost 4 weeks of laundry and to rush to Aldi and fill our cart with pretzels and cheddar cheese (which there was a serious lack of in Mexico). The Southwest United States is so …read more

Catching Up

February 14 – March 4, 2018. It has been over 6 years since we began our journey. Six years of traveling, house sitting, repairing and improving Blue Wing, outfitting and improving Ballena Blanca, starting adventures and having to turn back, engine trouble, sailing across the Gulf Stream, island hopping, learning, coming back to and leaving …read more

Visiting the Dentist in Los Algodones

February 5 – February 13, 2018. “Open.” Oh, English. That was for me. I open my mouth wider. It’s really my only job here. Hard to believe I was dozing off in a dentist’s chair, with people working in my mouth, but it has been six steady hours. And the soft guitar music and constant …read more

A few surprises in the Chiricahua Mountains

February 13 – 15, 2017. We had already been up a long stretch of muddy road when we saw the yellow ‘Bump Ahead’ sign. It looked just like one you see on an interstate, except that the words ‘next 23 miles’ had been added at the bottom. We pushed on, finding a boondocking site in …read more
