A dog named Snickers

While we were gone Will and Abigail got a dog named Snickers. I don't usually like little dogs, but she is very cute and sweet!

Home again

Thanks for sharing my travel memories with me!

Thanks for sharing my travel memories with me!

Well, we’re home. We were on the road for about 14 weeks, 8,000 miles and over 13 gigabytes of photos (from my camera alone .. not sure how many Erik has taken.)

This was the best trip I’ve ever done in my life.

And all I can say is that if you ever get the chance to do something like this, jump at it, it will change your life and your outlook for the better.

Also, does anybody want to buy a great van?

Seriously, our van is now for sale and if you are interested drop me a line and I’ll put you in touch with Erik.

Until then .. this blog will continue to follow my adventures. There are more to come in the near future! Stay tuned, and thanks again for reading.

Well, I guess my last blog post of the journey is going to be filed here in Avila. I’ll have a short wrap up tomorrow, but for now .. thanks for reading. Have a great weekend. And may all your travels be as fun and adventurous as ours have been this summer. We had a blast.

Port San Luis Obispo

We came out to Port SLO hoping to camp tonight, but there aren’t any spots so I’m not sure what we’ll do tonight.

I used to come out here quite a bit when I lived in SLO. It's a great beach.

Nit Wit Ridge

No, I’m not being mean.. this is really the name of this crazy place in Cambria.

Quite a spot.

A last day at the beach

It was gorgeous in Cambria yesterday, warm enough to go into the ocean.

Before meeting Laurie and Bert for dinner we walked out on the Fiscalini preserve.

Smoke from the fire made for a pretty sunset along Moonstone Beach.
