For months, Bird has been terrified of drones. If we see one, she talks about it for days. If she thinks she hears one, she stops in her tracks. So, clearly, we have kept ours tucked far away lest she sees the case and gets scared. However, over the past week or so, she’s beenContinue reading “Our Drone Saga”
In the month of September, we moved fast, which meant we had multiple single-night stop overs to get lots of miles under the tires. Luckily, we found some pretty awesome public land where we could boondock along our route.

Due to Memorial Day weekend, we stopped here for 1 night before moving on to the campground where we would spend the holiday. However,Continue reading “Campground Review and Hike at Maumee Bay State Park, Ohio”
