Travel Is Fatal To Prejudice

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.


Southern California 2015

We’re finally on the road again! After a short stint in San Diego to remodel our new trailer, we decided to head North into the California high desert.


Removing Distractions For Your Team

I’ve known far too many people who reach the coveted level of “middle management” and believe they’ve finally reached Easy Street. “Time to sit back and let the minions do my bidding!” Ok, I’m sure that’s not exactly verbalized, but delegation is easily abused by middle managers who think their primary job is to ensure everyone is typing away happily all day. (these are all the same managers you find tapping their watch when you come in too late or leave too early)


RV Remodel

Here’s where we left off: we recently sold our 34’ 5th wheel and opted for a smaller and cheaper alternative. So we found a great deal on a 27’ travel trailer in San Diego, but she’s a 2006 and needed some updating. But we were lucky that she was used lightly and taken good care of. No systems needed to be replaced or fixed – she just needed a facelift.


Grace Only Sticks To Our Imperfections

We don’t think of our flaws as the the glue that binds us to the people we love, but they are. Grace only sticks to our imperfections. Those who can’t accept their imperfections can’t accept grace either.


Discovering Dad Podcast

I met Josh Solar a few years ago while at a backyard cookout at my pal Gary’s house in San Diego. There were a lot of similarities between our families (including both having a first-born daughter named “Ava”). Their family was in the middle of a summer-long road trip from their Kansas City home. They told exciting stories of their adventures and I’ll always count Josh and Jenny Solar as having an influence on us deciding to hit the road full-time.


The Long and Short Of It

It’s easy to look back on seasons of your life and wish you had done things differently. We learned a lot owning our first “home on wheels”, but it’s time to upgrade … to something half as big.


Washington 2015

After spending a few weeks in Canada, it was nice to make it back to the lower 48 (and to the land of cheaper data and text messaging).


Canada 2015

Following our time in Montana, we were thrilled to take our kids on their first trip out of the U.S. My sister and her family live just outside of Calgary, but we’ve never visited them yet. So we pointed the truck North and crossed the border into Alberta.
