This is the view from our back door today as we sit here and wonder why we are not in a desert somewhere basking in the warm sunshine. The next best thing to do is to write a blog post about storage, right? In our last post, we talked about storage for bulky items in … Continue reading Toilet Paper Woes or Sweating the Small Stuff
Reflections on space management in a small Class B campervan,

White Mountain Petroglyphs is a unique petroglyph site. Hundreds of well-preserved images are carved into the rock face in the Wyoming Red Desert.
