New Post!

Hi there! I’m still working on migrating our subscribers… But I wanted to let you know we have a new post over on the new site. So please check it out over at You Me and the Dogs!  – Cheers! Come visit us at our new home… 

MOVING DAY

Hi All – We’re making some big changes over here! One of those changes is that we are moving our blog. WordPress.com has been our home for almost 5 years and it was a good platform for what we needed at the time, but we’ve grown up and it’s time to put on our big…

The Space Between: Dreams vs. Reality

In between jumping the proverbial picket fence, and realizing what our plans are now, there were a lot of plans (dreams) we’ve had along the way. We’ve had to re-evaluate those plans when reality reared its ugly head (damn you real-world!). Here’s a summary of where we started, to where we are now: 2012: The…

Evolution of a Dream

You know when you think you’ve got life all figured out? No? Yeah, me neither. Once upon a time, I wanted a white picket fence, a big house, maybe (that turned out to be NO) some kiddos, to work until I was 65 (OK. I really wanted to just hit the lotto, but I had…

Palm Trees to Pine Trees

Before we start the blog post I have a few items to get out of the way… I’ve been VERY busy since my last blog post so that is my excuse for not posting anything… A promotion, followed by an accounting integration (multi-billion dollar, 15 thousand + employee company), continuing into a cross country move,…

Our Growing Girl

The Gopher Tortoise is 6 months old. She’s grown so much (literally – I think i need a trampoline to get in now) – lets get a run down on all the stuff we’ve done: So last update was we bought a truck and made some plans… well those plans are almost complete – so much…

Don’t Talk to Strangers (and other advice we ignore)

We love Florida. Its February and we spend our days outdoors in sandals and light sweaters, instead of covering every exposed inch of skin in layers… oh and no shoveling, unless you count digging in the garden… which I can do now… in FEBRUARY. Other things you can do in Florida in February: Camp. So……

I <3 (heart) Guanajuato

Guanajuato is a place worth exploring. I had never heard of it before a few fellow overlanders traveled there after we met up in Puerto Vallarta. Song of the Road and Desk to Glory both spent some time here… more time than we did… and we are still a little jealous of this fact. SO……

Always Take the Long Way

After Hopkins, we had some decisions to make, namely, which way should we go home? Our original plan (the one before we spent all of our money…) was to hit everything we missed in Mexico on the way back, then go up the California coast to Washington, then, maybe, catch a ferry to Alaska and…

Hopkins: Belize’s Best Kept Secret

Hopkins is that smaller dot just below Dangriga. When you go to Hopkins, you might have someone ask you if you liked your stay. Most responses would be a resounding “Yes!” This person would then say, “Good. Now don’t tell anyone, or you’ll ruin it.” So, I’m breaking all the rules here and telling you…

Belizian Rum is One Hell of a Drink

I hope someone out there gets this Rick James/Dave Chappell reference. Anyway… enough about how I can’t tell a joke…. After our not-so-stellar border crossing into Belize, we were officially starving and needed a beer (or six). We headed to Corozal, to make the trip towards Sarteneja. From what we read, you can cross by…
