Another Season is Upon Us

In the year we were actively traveling, we saw and did things most Americans haven’t, and we consider it a blessing to have the memories of that season. We’ve accomplished everything we initially set out to do but we still want more! Continue reading “Another Season is Upon Us”

I’m compiling some of the lessons and interesting tidbits I’ve learned with the hopes of passing along useful information to fellow wanderers. Especially families of travelers similar to ours.

When #hyattfam5 first set out on our adventure, I never thought we’d decide to “stealth camp” but that’s just what we did for a decent part of our Central California stay. We were hesitant to do so but we made up our minds to change up our adventuring style (more on that in the near future) and this seemed to be the best way to do it.
