What's Next?

overcast 20 °C

June for a teacher means the hard work is done for another year. Time let go of the marking and the lessons, the 'school night' mentality and the manic, micro-decision making that is exhausting. Time to rejuvenate and, for us, to travel. Hot on the lips of all my friends is "where to, this year?". Well, the answer is The Badlands of the Dakotas and the MidWest.

We've been through before. Even stopped at Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. But we've never stayed and explored. This year, that's our plan. We've got a few stops before we get there from Ontario. You'll need to tune in to see where, but I may need to have my hair in braids for a few days. We've got historical myths to explore about Jesse James, and a wall to camp upon. We plan to see an artifact that could have changed the world in the Cold War, and get our purple shirts out on the way home.

What we do in the in-between, will be in the Badlands, the BlackHills, the Bighorns and Theodore Roosevelt's playground.

We seem to plan less and less as we carve out more time for the adventures to evolve around us instead of us planning the adventures. We'll most likely pay for ½ the campsites we find and ½ will be free ones we happen upon.

Our wheeled house (our 21' Coachman Apex) is going through some new modifications, among which is a wonderful map of our travels thus far IMG_4776.jpeg

And our homemade table top.

Stay tuned for the adventures. Summer awaits!
