You may think I'm daring. But I love a challenge.

Updated: Nov 18, 2021

Is it crazy to say, I have been living on the road for 27 days at this point?!


I'm laughing at myself right now as I sit next to Prairie Dog in the RV.


Pat asked before reading my last post, "are you firing shots?"


I replied, "bang-bang"



I have never been a blogger before, or a journalist, or a nomad for that matter. But what I have learned in life is that you have to start somewhere. I have vision for what this blog will be but its going to take time to build the story of how I became a travel blogger.


People don't just wake up and buy an RV and live on the road for the foreseeable future.


The end goal of this travel blog is to share the places we have gone and the experiences we'd want others to have.


Right now, my blogs are more along the lines on how we got to living on the road full time.

I love New Mexico. Its absolutely beautiful. The dessert sunset are to die for.


Pat and I went to the annual hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque NW. I was watching the sunset and looking at the sun rays reflect off the Sandia Mountains. I remember smiling at Pat and saying, "we couldn't do this if we were working."

As I sat there, I started reflecting on how I began 2021 as an Engineer for an manufacturing company making $86,000 while building a house on 40 acres during a pandemic.


I went from that, to snuggling next to the love of my life watching people share their passion for hot air balloons with complete strangers.


Most of my working career, I have been the only female engineer in the plant. I have also been the youngest manager, (not just once but twice in two different locations)


I never really liked talking about the inequalities I experienced on a day to day basis with my friends. I just wanted to pretend that everything was fine. I think it was because I didn't want to spend our time together venting about something that I couldn't change.


But I wanted to talk about the social injustice that are still prevalent.


I started a podcast.


When I started sharing my experiences, it was as if a flood gates opened.


Until the next post!
