From Seattle, we hopped on a giant ferry with our van house and made our way to the next destination: Olympic National Forest The ferry between Edmonds and Kingston was a crazy experience. A cold, windy, crazy experience that Eli and I both loved. From the front of the boat we got incredible views of … Continue reading Olympic National Forest
It is work day in the Greene/Nichols van household so I am finally taking the time to update you all on our current shenanigans as I finish my breakfast and morning tea under the cloudy Washington sky. About a week and a half ago, we meandered into the Seattle area after some time in Olympia. … Continue reading Seattle; Part 1
We're getting breakfast as our last stop in our exodus from Olympic National Forest. We chose a popular and delicious place in Sequim, WA called Oak Table Cafe, coffee compliments of White Cup Espresso, both of which are locally famous. The weather this week has, for the first time since Nevada, been less than ideal. … Continue reading Mini Update – Sequim, WA
We've made it safely to Seattle and have a friend we're staying with who's showing us around. We're gonna dig into Seattle and the Olympic National Forest and hopefully have something to show for it when we come out next week. Current status: having a blast!
This is our view today. We decided it was time to wash all our clothes, blankets, sheets, towels, pillow cases, and seat covers. Brooke has busted out the art supplies and I am breaking from work to write this post. Looks like we'll be here for a while...

Having traveled through only one of thirty-something states on our list, we knew that we would need to keep moving if we wanted to have even a chance of getting through it all. With that in … Continue reading Oregon
We finally made it. Only, we didn't actually make it. I thought we did. It was a moment that I had been waiting for since my senior year of high school when I added it to my bucket list assignment in Ms. Barrier's economics class. Finally, I was going to be able to check another … Continue reading The Redwood National Forest
After we said our goodbyes to Lance, Jed, and all eight of their pets in Chico, we climbed back into the van and headed up the Skyway towards another cousin of mine in Magalia. Magalia, California I hadn't seen that part of my family since around 2009 or thereabouts so we had a happy reunion … Continue reading Magalia, Subway Cave, and Burney Falls
After the fiasco that was San Francisco, our super awesome tow truck driver brought us and our sad little house on wheels to Eli's Aunt and Uncle's house about 30 miles away from the city. At this point, I am convinced that California only has cute towns because we landed in yet another precious little … Continue reading Redwood City and Chico
At long last. We were finally going to a place that I have been wanting to see for years. One of the coolest cities in America that is often the icon of California... San Francisco Oh goodness, San Francisco. What an amazingly fun and frightful weekend. Guess what we did! Failed to plan our trip … Continue reading San Francisco, California
