Catching Up and Catching Our Breath (Days 23-26)

It probably won’t surprise you to hear that after 3 weeks on the road, the little things start to back up on you. When you’re go-go-going all the time, things like budgeting, picture uploading and editing, and blog-post-writing tend to slip a bit. Uncle Ted and Aunt Pam left Thursday morning for dog agility trials, but were gracious enough to allow us to stay in our super-awesome guest suite in their home as long as we wanted. (For real though, we basically had an entire wing of the house to ourselves.)

So, we got to work, but don’t worry, we didn’t overdo it. There was plenty of sleeping in, reading, HGTV, and enjoying the house and Port Townsend.

Aunt Pam’s bird feeders saw some some action from the ruby-throated hummingbirds.

I had enjoyed that birthday lunch at Doc’s so much, that we went back out there for dinner, and had a wonderful meal. Hard to beat Alaska king crab for dinner!


The other thing we did was reset for the second half of the trip. I had been getting frustrated with the amount of time we were losing daily with the setup and breakdown of the tent, so Rebecca suggested we revisit the idea of setting up the Tahoe so we could sleep in it. We had discussed that idea originally, but hadn’t been able to set it up, as I bought the truck the week before we left. So, I bought a rooftop car carrier, we reorganized a bunch of our clothes and gear, and strung up an impromptu curtain system inside. We’ll see how it goes!

I grew up in New Jersey, went to college in Virginia, and married a girl from New Hampshire, so I can drive the East Coast in my sleep. I love exploring, jumping out of airplanes, whitewater rafting, fast cars, comic books, and generally refusing to act my age. More practically, I love budgeting and financial planning, renovating and updating older homes (and now campers), and learning to make our family as self-sustaining as possible.
