My very first attempt at blogging was back in the winter of 2007 when Eric and I went for a two month road trip around the country. . . We lived out of our truck, with our dog of course, experiencing nights that were 20 below in South Dakota and days that were 80 degrees in Florida. . . The blog was a way for us to share our adventures with our friends and family back home, and as a way to keep a diary of sorts. I took the photos and Eric humorously, of course, narrated them. Needless to say, the blog was a big hit. well, maybe not. . . but it's still great fun to check in on it from time to time. . .

Eric peering over the edge of the Grand Canyon
Oh man . . . Ludlow, California. What a hole. Sorry if any of you are from there but dude, this is the town's postcard!! Look at what they are highlighting!! We ate at that coffee shop too and the waitress was a biatch.
Most awesome shop in Austen. . . i could have died and gone to heaven right then and there.
Eric's aunt and uncle happen to own a gun shop (aptly named Self Defense Inc.) and shooting range in West Palm Florida. . . I was a damn good shot.
Oh man. . . one of my biggest regrets is not buying this amazing limo. Just look at those horns!
Sooo cold in Arches National Park. . . Breakfast a la Bunsen

The beauty that is the West Coast.
Santa Cruz, California

that sounds amazing, great idea with the truck. my dream is to go all over the north west us. washington, oregon, colorado, utah and california. i want to visit san francisco, lake tahoe, aspen, portland, seattle and all the coastal areas. i want to see more national parks too as i only saw zion and bryce when i was in utah last. i know this will take 2-6 weeks to do but it is my dream trip. second to that is a tour of new england, maine vermont, mass, cont. and ny state. hopefully next fall so i can see the colours. i've done the canadian west coast tofino on vancouver island to banff alberta via the rockies and it was amazing. highly recommend that. go in late summer and it grizzly season in banff and you can see those big guys eating at the side of the road, amazing. tofino is incredible too, so wild, huge rainforest cedars and whales! plus the best fish tacos ever.

ohh, and i love your dog!!!

these pictures are amazing!!! thanks for sharing this bit of your year in 07 with us!

I love road trips and travelling...in 2005 i backpacked the south pacific (NZ' Australia (incl. the interior/outback in a beat up commodore) and Fiji. i went alone but made three friends that seriously upped the ante of my trip. i miss it. now with a job, times flies and travelling doesn't feel as easy (or ever for as long!). I try to remind myself to take trips as often as possible. was gonna go to europe next summer, but now im moving in the spring and have zero anything so i am saving everytthing to put a gorgeous apt together. travel in 2011 i guess. wow 2011.....there was a time when i thought that was sooooooooo far away lol.

anywaysssssssssss hope you're well lady! oh and btw- shout out for you in my latest video :)
