A pause on the road trip of life.......

So it turns out trying to keep a blog updated on a road trip while tent camping in next to impossible. Almost every minute of the day is spent driving and setting up or taking down the tent, sleeping bags, and getting things set up to do frivolous things like eat. :)

Anyway, we are back in our 'native' town of Prescott Arizona and have been having a great time catching up with friends and family from being away these nearly 5 years. It's really felt like a homecoming for us and the kids are having a blast catching up with all their friends! We're here for a few weeks, going through storage, reconnecting, and trying to assess the next step of life......turns out that's not so easy!

We will be posting some blogs about the road trip and the cool things we got to see and do since Alaska......we promise.....over the next couple of days!

Scootin' through Canada

Well, we left Alaska, and knew we were going to be camping on the road through Canada and the Northwest. We also knew it was probably going to be a bit being the beginning of September. So, our first stop in Canada (and it ended up being our ONLY! :) was a campground called Beaver Point. 
Most campgrounds make you buy a small bundle of wood, but with this campground they let us use the wheelbarrow and get one load per night we were staying. Levi went over and loaded it super full and we all thought...."there's no way we're going to burn all that! we're only staying one night!" Well, by the time we went to bed, it was almost gone and we quick jumped in our sleeping bags and got settled in for a chilly night. By the way......these are NOT high tech sleeping bags!
It was the kind of night where you wake up every time you move because the rest of the seeping bag is freezing! There was even frost in the inside if the tent in the morning, so we decided to make a beeline for the states, and hopefully warmer climates the further we went south. 

In the end, it was a great spot and we had fun roasting marshmallows, and making memories!
See you in the US!
