  1. Love following your travels, Lisa! Good to hear that you two are still enjoying the nomadic life. May our paths cross again someday!!

    1. Thanks and we sure are! I haven't gotten to answering your email but I THINK we might get there before you head north. Hope o but we'll keep in touch in any case and maybe rendezvous somewhere else on the road. Would love to see you and Eddie and partake in whatever local delicacy the area offers :-) Safe travels to you guys if we don't see you in CA.

I'd love to hear from you about what you think and if you have any questions, especially about the places we've been, living in an RV or living on the road.
