5 Years of living with a husky! Beast of burden? You decide!

On Aug 08th of 2015 we took a chance to bring home a rescue husky who was called Kaliki. One of the best things we ever did. Is he a lot of work? YES! Is he worth every moment of it Yes! (Now you know this is his Mommy talking right!) There have been some challenges but thankfully I married the dog whisper himself so together we have adapted to this new family. We hope you enjoy our boy as much as we do and we’d love to hear about you and your fur babies so please tell us about them.

Hiking in Acadia National Park – Trust the Journey

When traveling cross-county, many of us map out our general route and drop some pins along our “bucket list” of favorite spots to see. 
Some of us are planners, where the whole journey needs to first be mapped out and planned. Others like Michael and I are more of a “just wing it” type. We generally have a good idea of our plans between driving, taking care of our furry pupster Kaliki and stocking the RV with supplies.   Later we figure out where we are going to stay, without micro-managing our daily agenda – yeah, we’re the “wing it” couple. 
So on this trip heading to the far North to York, Maine we decided that since we were only a few hundred miles to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, we continued our northerly sojourn.
To make the most of our time in the Acadia National Park, we rose early to assure we would be able to find parking for our 25 foot RV (large parking spots are few and far between). That said, the park offers a nice transit system free of charge that can take visitors around the 27-mile loop, complete with hop-on and off privileges.
We jumped off at Sand Beach and on the spur of the moment, decided to try The Great Head Trail.

Lake Havasu, Arizona – 2020 Hot Air Balloon Festival

While winds prevented most hot air balloons from taking flight on Saturday 1/11, on the 12th, several dozen balloon crews took to the skies on Sunday with spectacular weather over Lake Havasu, Arizona. Whether shooting video from the London Bridge where the hot air balloons get up close and personal, the channel channel waterway, downtown or near the Crazy Horse RV park, the views were fantastic! We also have some footage of the local colorful post-holiday nightlife.

Plimouth Village Plantation Living History – Settler reenactment 400 years ago

Following up on Part I of our Plimouth, Massachusetts tour of the living history plantation, in Part II Grace (a descendant from the Mayflower) goes back 400 years to converse with period actors portraying the life of Pilgrim discussing their life, joys and hardships. Hmm, at first glance being an early settler with adventure and freedoms sounded GREAT… but their journey got far worse than today’s First World Problems!
