After our Vermont/New York/Ohio adventures, we made the decision to head through the Heartland, towards Yellowstone once again. Why visit someplace we’ve already been? Well…so many reasons really. The fact that we have a close friend, who happens to be a Park Ranger in Yellowstone is a big part of wanting to return. Also, …

So full disclosure here…some of us (not naming names) were none too excited about visiting some of the interior states of our nation. The prospect of high heat and humidity, miles of flat terrain, and little familiar to us had most of our family ready to just drive through, spending our “required” one night …

One year ago today we left West Michigan for the road. It doesn’t seem like it. In some ways it seems like yesterday, and in other ways it seems like forever ago. We’ve been to 28 states covering over 22,000 miles. We have seen both the start and end of the Mississippi river, crossed …

On our route back West, we contemplated another farm stay (after our great experience at Spencer Farm, we were ready for another WOOFing assignment!). A WWOOFing farm in Ohio contacted us wondering if we would like to stay and work for week or two. During early summer, they are prepping and packing for their …

We’re realizing on our travels (and with life in general) that Plan A doesn’t always make sense and that it’s okay to go with Plan B or C. Sometimes, changes in plans lead to equally good (if not better) experiences and this is something we’re trying to embrace more and pass on to the …

When the farm in Vermont invited us for a WOOF farm stay, the first thing they said was “we’d love to have you, but not sure if you can get up our drive”. We had several email exchanges and a phone conversation discussing the driveway. They posted a video of a log truck navigating …

As mentioned on our last post, we begrudgingly left our friends on Spencer Farm. In all honesty, we deliberated a LOT on where to go and what to do. Our Alaska trip was cancelled and due to COVID, many of the things we set out to do aren’t really options these days with the …

Today was a strange and sad day as we said good-bye/see you later to all of our friends on Spencer Farm and Alabama. This shouldn’t have been that difficult, however, when the time arrived, both Jason and I found ourselves at a loss for words. We worked hard 5 or more hours every week …

Monday May 11 – Day 57 at the Farm To start the week off we cut some limbs down at the studio and Tricia and the kids hauled the brush away with the tractor and dump trailer. Liam is getting really good at backing that tractor. Liam finished off his hat and, rightfully so, is …

Monday May the4th be with you – Day 50 at the Farm Ella heard something in the goat pasture this morning and turned out it was a small bunny in distress due to this rat snake. The bunny didn’t make it and neither did the snake. Put another notch on the garden hoe.
