Life on the road – Always paying it forward

When I was sitting in my stick house and dreaming of life on the road. I created this blog to allow others to follow our journey. Turns out I don’t have internet as often as I would like.

It’s been two months now since we left Portland. We have visited with family and friends and  have made many new friends on the road. I am brought to tears by the kindness of others. We often read about the horrible things people are doing in the world, but really there is still a lot of love out there. The random acts of kindness don’t go unnoticed.

I hope at one point to go back through and thank everyone but for now it will be a big thanks to all that have helped make this journey possible. I just want to take this time to thank those that we have met alone the road who have helped us in one way or another. From friends and family hosting us in their homes, to complete strangers who have been inspired to share their time, love, and kindness. Hoping that we have been able to touch your lives as y’all have touched ours.


First Stop

Well in true Oregon style it rained for the first two days we are on the road. Let me start by telling you that camping in the cold wet rain isn’t as fun as it might sound.

Our first stop was at Beverly Beach State Park on the Oregon Coast between Newport and Florence. Once the rain stopped it was really such a beautiful park. I would highly recommend this park to anyone traveling. It’s bathrooms were clean and the showers were hot. The price was great and the site was just off the beach. Can’t ask for more than that… well maybe no rain.

First breakdown…. now let me say that if you go back and forth about removing the heating unit while converting your school bus, JUST DO IT. The mess will be far less expensive than one once everything is done. Period.

Next stop family in Coos Bay. Such a wonderful visit with my Aunt and cousins. Great meals and fantastic place to park. So thankful for the time spent and the wonderful hosts. Miss you all. xoxoxo

Launch time..

Well the time has come to say farewell to the town my babies were born. It’s bitter sweet… excited for the new adventure, sad for the friends we will be leaving behind. Much love to those we will leave behind and those to which we have not yet met.

As I always say… never goodbye, just a see you later.
