Vanlife Maiden Voyage Pt. 3

Vanlife Maiden Voyage Pt. 3

Down we drove with the winter storms behind us, through Reno and further hoping to reach our planned campground for the night at Glass Creek Campground near Mammoth Lakes, CA.  This was an area that I knew very well as my family had camped and condo’d at Mammoth every Summer for my entire childhood.

Vanlife Maiden Voyage Pt. 2

Vanlife Maiden Voyage Pt. 2

As we moved south into California with the goal to reach my parents house in time to celebrate an early Thanksgiving before my Mother left on a vacation, we found ourselves concerned about gas and weather. Winter has been at a slow creep on the west coast of late and we had been fortunate to leave Christmas Valley when it was still relatively warm, however, as we moved down the 395 we started to see winter gathering in the mountains and chasing our tail.

Ode to a Tent

Ode to a Tent

In the middle of May, I had to leave my parent’s home in Pasadena, CA and head north to the Oregon Outback.  This was the beginning of the scariest, weirdest portion of my life thus far and I owe my completely unlikely survival to Trump.

Foodsperiments: Mini Pizza Pies

Okay this one was one of the tastier things I’ve made.  I don’t understand why it turned out so good since I was winging it the entire time, but I don’t think I would change a damn thing next time around which is weird for me.  Usually it takes me a few trials and many errors to decide I’m happy with a recipe.

Foodsperiment: Strawberry Bread

Foodsperiment: Strawberry Bread

I have a giant box of strawberries in the fridge and the knowledge that if I do not do something with them tonight, my mother will give them away tomorrow before she and Dad go on vacation because when staying here alone, apparently I do not rate strawberries.

So?  So I shall make them into a thing!!!  After consulting Twitter, I have decided to make Continue reading “Foodsperiment: Strawberry Bread”

Foodsperiments: This can’t be healthy

So, another evening alone in the house with the dogs.  Another opportunity to create

Today’s attempt began with ten minutes staring into the fridge, followed by a flurry of random ingredient spew onto the counter.  After a little editing I Continue reading “Foodsperiments: This can’t be healthy”

Ruff Tummies

Ruff Tummies

I love my dogs unconditionally and I love my Korra to bits, but I do not love how every so often she will sneakily steal some bit of food or randomness to eat that leads to a long night of her waking me with her “WAKE UP I HAVE TO GO POTTY!!!” Howl every Continue reading “Ruff Tummies”
