We finally had some time away from our full time jobs to take another trip in the Nomad!  This time we headed Northwest with my parents to a park that we've visited before, but have never stayed at.  One that holds a lot of fame, history and beauty! Itasca State Park—t...

Our last trip of the summer season! (cue the tears!)

This trip was a bit different in that we ventured across the border to Wisconsin not staying in a State Park and instead stayed at a private campground.  We planned this all around ONE thing---PICKLES! Ha!

This weekend we stayed close to home with just a hop skip and a jump to our destination just about 35 minutes north of us .  This was perfect as the kiddos were in their baseball tournaments this weekend and needed to get to their games--skipping away for a few hours o...

When friends, family and strangers hear about our camper and adventures with the kids, they often say things like, "Oh, I wish we could do something like that", "I've never been a big fan of the outdoors", "I've never been camping", "I wouldn't know how to start", etc....
