This is our old pooch Lexi. She's been patiently waiting for us to finish the Ambo so we can hit the road. Rain or shine she sits outside the door while we saw and drill and cuss and drink. She's stoked to see us everytime we step outside, 5 mins or 1 hour doesn't matter.. super stoked. She's been with us in all our adventures. A little stressed, but she da bes'. .

I wanted to write something nice and inspirational here, & really the only thing that keeps coming up for me is the fact that the older I get, the less fucks I give about what people think of me...so I think that’s pretty damn cool. So here’s to feeling the best I’ve ever felt in my own skin, & owning all of it...small boobs, big ass forehead, bunions, overly emotional, outspokenness & all 😉

It’s the last day of Overland Expo West, and while everyone is packing up, I took The Pearl on a short adventure through the local woods. It’s been a great time with old friends, and making new ones! Safe travels everyone, and hope to see you at the next Overland Expo!

Catching up while it's snowing, since we're staying inside & bundled up, altho' I'm sure the hoodoos look amazing in white!
(Having lived in coastal CA, neither of us has the appropriate footwear, or even jackets, for this noise!) On Thursday, we made a special stop on the way down to Bryce Canyon.
I'm a MAJOR hot springs lover, think this is around my 32nd! It's been on my wishlist for years, so I was delighted to discover it was only 9.2 miles south of where we overnighted at Wal-Mart!

We passed through several tiny towns that had really cool old houses & buildings, as well as plenty of ancient farm buildings, very scenic against the backdrop of the mountains. We also passed the boyhood home of Butch Cassidy.

Mystic Hot Springs is lovably funky, just how I like it, in the fashion of Mercey, Orr and Sierraville hs.
Would have loved to have spent the night, however the RV sites are $44 & only for ONE person, the second person is an ADDITIONAL $30...YOWZA! They say the soaking is included, but a day pass is only $15. So that's why we overnighted at WM & bought our "thank you" groceries there instead.

However, lookie at them vintage skoolies that serve as their lodgings! Each one is named and has its own flair: https://mystichotsprings.com/experiences/accommodations/buses/

As I'm chatting with the check-in guy, he says he's a UC Santa Cruz graduate...small world! (This happened again yesterday, the Ranger at the Bryce Canyon kiosk had also lived in SC years ago!) I made a beeline for the old tubs under the travertine rock! It reminded me of my favorite Eastern Sierra soak, Travertine hs, where the pools ARE part of the rock itself!

I LURVE soaking whilst it's raining, & there were 12 of us brave souls who soaked thru a HAIL STORM!! (see video)
Everyone was very friendly and we traded soaking & traveling stories.

And get THIS! They have MUSIC FESTIVALS here, so you can soak & groove at the same time, how awesome is THAT??!?! ♨ 🎶

Being self-sufficient is so beautiful 🚐

If all goes well tomorrow sitting up on the roof might be a little more squished...

Tomorrow we're installing our solar panel... and she's a big one! 360 watts of free, renewable energy ☀️
.
Hopefully they'll still be a little bit of room for hanging out up here 🤞🏼

When your father owns @flyingfishpdx, you can bet you will be fishing while on vacation. Something about that smile on Lyf’s face tells us he’s one happy #fishmonger. But the look on Miles’ face? 😉

So I tried to switch it up and hand Abi the phone to write something about this post because normally it is me. 15 mins go by and she put the phone down because we are pregaming for #longbeachpride2019 in our home in the parking lot because we can and we got side tracked on another convo. When we were done she let me know she hadn’t posted anything because she said she didn’t know what to say. We both laughed hard. She did say she just loved the way I can bring her pictures to life with my words. I thought that was beautiful. She can write poetry, she just does it via the lens.
Expressing yourself comes in all forms. As long as you’re proud of what you do, you are thriving!

I have the best co-pilot any traveler could want
.
.

This dog has been with me for more than 8 years and has just been so tolerant and accepting of all of the shenanigans I involve her in. She’s just over 9yrs old (got her at 11 months) and still has the spirit of a puppy. She has to jump about 4ft every time she gets in the van and she refuses to let me help her. I believe she wants to show me she’s still got it 🐶. She’s absolutely the best security system for the van and definitely the cutest one on board. When I get out to get food or diesel, she moves to the driver seat and people lose their minds. I almost always come out to people photographing her or asking me if they can get her photo. Basically she’s the best and I love her. That is all 🥰
P.S if you don’t know her, this is Bailey. .
