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 […]

Earthship Amazing

Never seen an Earthship? Prepare yourself to be amazed. Michael Reynolds began designing “radically sustainable” homes in a community just outside of Taos in 1971. Since then, his innovative, self-sufficient whimsically designed Earthships have cropped up around the world. Not only does the Earthship model find five ways to re-use captured rainwater, it utilizes both the sun […]

Cider Press Rules!

We spent two weeks in early September at Falcon Ridge Farm in the Ozarks and did so many different things there that it’s hard to figure out what to write about! I’ve posted a load of pictures from our stay there in the album of Falcon Ridge photos on our Images page. (If you haven’t visited Images […]

We Made It!

We are finally on the road! In fact, we’re deep into Texas BBQ country as I write this post, but let’s catch you up with how it all shook  out… The house is in escrow and should close any day now. The whole process has gone perfectly – after a couple weeks of prep, the […]

Hella Real

It’s been awhile since our last post – we’ve been slammed.  The sale of the house is moving swiftly but the pressure is still intense.

Right In Our Backyard

Last weekend I attended the Urban Ecology Extravaganza right here in little ol’ Altadena, CA. I have lived in Altadena since 2004 and not too much happens here (which is a good thing, mostly) but over the last six months Altadena has established a certified organic & local Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays 3pm-7pm  and a […]

Jeepers Batman, Baking Soda is Amazing!

Its “flu season” and everyone around me is getting sick.  More than once in the last few weeks, I’ve felt a strange headache coming on or woke up with a tickle in my throat.  First thing I do is dump 2-3 teaspoons of aluminum-free baking soda* in about a half a cup of water, swirl […]
