We're still alive and well. Since Washington, D.C., we spent two weeks with Brooke's good friend in North Carolina before heading further south into Florida. I've been working with my coworkers on-site since we got to Melbourne so there's been no shortage of work for me. Brooke has taken on a few commissions and projects … Continue reading Mini Update – Melbourne, FL
Look at me, getting caught up on the blog posts! Believe it or not, you are actually reading a post about where we are right at this very moment....well, at least until tomorrow (No longer true, now it's two days late. Sorry, not sorry). We are currently in Virginia but when we left Philadelphia on … Continue reading Washington D.C.
After loitering around Connecticut for two and a half weeks, we finally made our leave and began the second half of our voyage. We decided against going to New York City this time around just so we wouldn't end up spending too much time in Connecticut, which probably would have been smarter now that we … Continue reading New Jersey and Pennsylvania
After much deliberating, we finally made the choice between seeing New York and Boston. It was a difficult choice but we came to the conclusion that it would just be so much cooler if we could...see both. One at a time though, the first being one of the most historic places in America.

Apparently there isn't much to do in Connecticut besides go to the surrounding states or hang … Continue reading Rhode Island
After four and a half months of van life, we have been through a lot. We have learned things about ourselves and each other, about our country and traveling. It has been an amazing journey and it is far from over! In fact, it is only half way over, in terms of distance, as we … Continue reading Half Way There
After Michigan, the next group of friends and family on our list were in the western parts of New York. We wanted to go through Canada to Buffalo, NY but had to go the south route around Lake Erie and through Cleveland because I am an incurable procrastinator and didn't get a passport in time. … Continue reading New York State Sprint
After many long awaited months, we finally got a dose of home away from home when we got the opportunity to see our dear friend, John. His typical summer schedule usually includes a long stint on the more eastern side of Michigan where a lot of his family resides which is where we were headed … Continue reading Eastern Michigan
With sorrow in our hearts, we said goodbye to Chicago and continued eastward into more unfamiliar territory. Stop number one: Grand Haven, Michigan As we have continued to clock miles and months and states on our trip, we can't help but note how much we miss our Nevada friends. Fortunately for us, three whole Nevada … Continue reading Around Michigan We Go!
Warning: this post is going to contain a lot of food descriptions. You will get hungry. After many long hours of driving and sooooo many miles logged into our trip total, we finally pulled up to the home of one of Eli's coworkers, Pete. He and his wife, Rachel, graciously invited us into their home … Continue reading Chicago, Illinois
