Strataca: Underground Salt Museum in Hutchinson, Kansas

What makes Strataca unique?

 To Climb or Not to Climb…There’s No Question!

We have been workamping in Northern Michigan since mid-May and have been living three miles from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. All season, working in the office at Indigo Bluffs RV Resort, I have told guests about the Dune Climb and encouraged them to try it.  We have driven past the Dune Climb; we have biked past […]

Tucson Nights and Delights

Ross and I really loved our visit to Tucson. So much so that we kept extending it! Unfortunately we have been having persistent battery issues, so while we were there Ross installed a new battery for us. (That hasn’t fixed the problems, unfortunately, but that’s for another blog.) When we weren’t working or problem-solving, we found plenty of fun things to do in Tucson.  Read more about Tucson Nights and Delights

LAS CRUCES LOVE

It was practically love at first sight…but first, how we got there.

As I mentioned in my last post, our visit to El Paso, TX was super-short due to weather and the lack of a car. It was the first time I have been in a Walmart and didn’t see any other white people!

A Day in Dahlonega…It’s Pure Gold!

Although the chances for rain were slim today according to the weatherman, by noon it was damp and dreary and staring to drizzle. This was quite a shift from yesterday which was warm and beautiful – a “sit outside in shorts while reading day!” Rather than stay inside and succumb to the weather, we hit the […]

Back to the Future… Cuba!

Travel for us is like an itch you’re not supposed to scratch…no, that makes it sound bad…it’s like putting cake in the fridge and telling us not to eat it, yeah …cake…

Cuba all started in October when we worked with a guy named Raphael at the Beet Harvest, his wife Lia was from Cuba and he spoke highly of it and said we should visit if we got the chance while in Florida…he also showed us a video of a fish that walked on land that’s only found in Cuba…SO he put the cake in the fridge, if you will.
