Weekly Update – 4/23/23

As of today, we are officially farther north than Fort Wayne and out of the desert. Lots of grass in the valleys and snow on the mountains.

Outside of exploring St. George, I spent the week working on job applications and had a couple interviews. I am excited about the possibilities for the fall, but trying not to get too excited.

Week #10 of Ben Messick Photography shown above. Two travel days in one week make for a tired family. But we are now settled in at a nice campground in southern Utah. The weather is perfect and I can see the mountains as I type.

We have now spent over 250 nights in the camper. I think I am getting used to it. Looking ahead, I have made campground reservations near Glacier National Park, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Mt. Rushmore and Johnny Appleseed Park.

We have a ways to go, but it feels like we are near the end.

Weekly Update – 4/9/2023

Happy Easter! Only THREE more days of Arizona! We are getting up early tomorrow to beat the lines and see the sunrise over the Grand Canyon. We will start the sprint north on Thursday and then back to end the trip in Indiana at the end of June. We will spend Thursday and Friday in the Lake Mead/Las Vegas area. On Saturday we will arrive in St. George, Utah for a week followed by a week in Salt Lake City.

In other news, I am applying for a couple Computer Science teaching jobs in Indiana. It’s time to start figuring out what I am going to after this “trip.”

As we contemplate the next phase of our lives, we have decided to sell our house and move into our RV for a year. Today we decided on our approximately route. If we don’t want to travel more than 300 in a day, we need only move once every couple weeks to complete the circuit in a year. #feelingexcited
