We Are Home

“Where do you live?” Simple question, right? Living on the road, we hear that question all the time but it’s complicated. In the beginning of our Big Adventure, we didn’t really know how to answer. We’d say: “We used to own a home just outside of LA.” Or:  “We live in an RV as we travel […]

A New York State of Mind

I know I left off writing about our time in Vermont but I just don’t know where to start telling the story of our time at Root ‘n Roost Farm in White Sulphur Springs, NY. Slaughtering chickens? Chasing piglets? Building fences? Cheech and Chong? Yo-Yo Ma? Hands down, the best part of our stay were […]

Which Way Do We Go?! – Expat Prep

People keep asking us what we are doing so I will try to catch us up! After our last farm stay in Louisiana, we wandered back towards California in order to be home for the holidays. We spent a wonderful couple of holiday months in LA with family and friends and lots and lots of […]

Sustainability – Does It Matter?

I have been trying to figure out what to write next for quite some time. I like sharing our travel stories and information we’ve learned about farming, sustainability, permaculture and food. No, actually, I love it – especially when readers respond with wonder, advice and gratitude. It makes me hopeful; like we are actually doing something meaningful and […]

Hide or Go Seek

Upon returning from our year-long cross-country expedition to learn firsthand about living more sustainably, the most commonly asked question has been, “Did you get what you wanted out of the trip?” My answer is yes, absolutely. We sheared sheep and herded goats and cows and hogs and chickens. I learned to drive a tractor, till […]

Farming or Vacation?

Well, hell…I am so far behind on my blog posts about our farm visits (and it doesn’t help that I keep taking time to research and write my article, Where Our Food Comes From) but I’ll try and get us caught up while still giving each farm visit its fair shake. Mid-July, we left upstate New […]

Top 5 Questions From the Road

1) How are you doing after almost 5 months on the road? We’re doing fine. Thanks for asking! Not as slender and physically fit as we’d hoped to be at the end of this summer, but doing really well! Thankfully, the adjustment to being on the road has been much easier than expected, kind of […]

Getting Busy on the Eve of 50

12 weeks into our expedition and I am OK…actually, I’m much better than OK. What I mean to say is that I really wasn’t certain how I would take to this nomadic lifestyle…and I’m pretty sure Anastasia was even more worried about my transition than I was. Leaving our home in Altadena for a year-long […]

Recipe: Lei-Lani’s WIP Chick Pea Salad

Forgive the lengthy preamble, but I must set the stage… Yesterday, the lovely Anne Sutton, mother of our dear friend Emily James, wondered what we missed most after being on the road for 11 weeks. “Our friends” was our first answer. “Cooking” ran a distant second. I don’t want to wax long and sappily about […]
