Chilly Night in Montana

It was a pretty low-key travel day, and I was exhausted by the time night started rolling around, so we planned to boondock at the next convenient truck stop for the night.

We were able to find one that had plenty of open spots, and also allowed some room for the kids to stretch, run around, parkour and long board to quell their cabin fever :)

Life is an Adventure

You would think that having to drive 794 miles, heading west, across Wyoming and Montana would be a little monotonous.

Not for us!

Three hours into the day’s drive, we stopped off at a gas station for some snack refills. Upon walking back to the coach, I noticed the bike rack was hyperextended toward the car, and was hovering about 3 inches above the hood.

NOT GOOD!

Adventures on the Gorge

Time to catch up on blog posts! We have a bunch headed your way, and we’ll begin with our adventures in West Virginia :)

While staying in West Virginia, we had 3 days packed with fun at Adventures on the Gorge in Fayetteville, WV. Heather’s best childhood friend, Keri, is an Adventures on the Gorge guide, and she planned some awesome trips for us while we were visiting.

Normandy Farms Campground

Our stay in the Boston-area will be super short—only a day and a half—but we were fortunate enough to work out dinner plans with a college friend and his lovely wife the first evening we arrived.

During our trip down from Maine, we ran into some horrible storms that forced us to sit off the side of the road for 20 minutes or so before continuing. Along with some lunch and gas delays, we arrived a couple hours later than we had hoped.

Lobsta Chowda Beeya: 10 Days in Maine

Our next stop after Vermont was a week in Boothbay, Maine, where we met up with the Burrell famlily—awesome!—another fulltime family we haven’t seen since April. We  stayed at the Shore Hills Campground and RV Park, which is a nice little resort nestled just outside of Boothbay Harbor.

The first night we found out that the Burrell’s oldest son, who is an actor performing in various plays at a local theatre throughout the summer, was performing in the final show of “Spamalot”—a hilarious play inspired by Monty Python and the Holy Grail. We were offered 2 seats for Heather and I to attend, which we graciously accepted—oh yes!
