Idaho: June 2014.

On our way out of Oregon, we tried long and hard to figure out how we can make it out to Hell’s Canyon National Recreation Area in Idaho without adding a ton of miles to our travels. After a lot of research, we decided that it was not meant to be this time around. We found questionable cell reception at the campgrounds and the trip would likely have added several days to our visit. After all, we are not on vacation, this is our real day-to-day life and sacrifices are the norm.

Goose Lake, Oregon.

As we continued to head north, we were determined to make it to Oregon. Driving from southern California to Oregon is a long haul. It is right up there with driving across west Texas. It takes just as much time to get to the Oregon border as it would be from here to Canada.

I am honored to be part of this month’s DELIGHT bundle from Be Wild and Free. If you haven’t heard of them, they have built an awesome community for homeschoolers. In this month’s bundle, I had a chance to join other mama’s that I admire, like @kristinrogers and @deannamccasland, and write about how we roadschool and adventure across the country with our three young children.

June Lake, CA to Washoe State Park, NV to Susanville, CA.

As usual, we don’t really have many plans until the last minute. Because we know that even if we try to plan something, things always come up to try to ruin that plan. We had thought about going to Alaska first. Then we thought maybe we head to Europe for the summer. At the end, we decided to finish off the rest of the 48 contiguous states in the country by heading to the northeast. First stop, back up the 395 towards the state of Oregon.

A day with Michelle Gardella and crew.

We first found each other a little over a year ago when they made the life changing decision to buy an airstream and take their family on the road. Our paths nearly crossed last winter in the southwest before they decided to plant new roots in Austin, Texas. We are really glad that we finally got to meet here in Connecticut as they are in the final stages of pulling up their old ones.

We can not thank Michelle enough for these AMAZING photos of the kids. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! And for the fabulous day we spent together. Hope our paths cross real soon.

You check out more photos of the kids here.

Well it is no secret that we are way behind on the blog but we are back in LA for a few weeks for the holidays so we will do our best to catch up. This goes all the way back to March 2014 when we spent some time at Sequoia National Park.
