A different kind of travel blog


A moderately emotional, highly sensitive, outdoors inspired photographer and artist formerly living a tiny, nomadic lifestyle in a camper with three cats and a husband…now making a home base in a 780 square foot midcentury brick ranch in the Hall of Fame City.


I ask my husband that question all the time. “Is it normal that we get to sit virtually alone in the great expanse of the Coconino National Forest in the spring and listen to the birds while the wildflowers wave in the wind with no civilization within sight?” No.

“Is it normal that we get to sit at the base of a 12,000 foot peak and literally watch the snow melt after working all day from our 80 square foot rolling home?” Again, no.

This isn’t normal. Not for most people.
But for some of us who choose to live differently, what is normal anyway?

That was our life for much of 2017, 2018 and 2019. 2020 will be much different. Maybe more normal. A little more normal so that when we’re out there we can fully recharge and stop depleting our energy sources solely on logistics. We’re making a 780 square foot home base…and I’ll be here to tell that story too!
