Made it to Medway, MA
After a frantic two weeks of driving, looking for a camp site, setting up camp at 2 AM, then repeating almost every day...we had made it to Pam's childhood home. https://youtu.be/v20n--dHTt4 https://youtu.be/aMh85fZnPr8 https://youtu.be/QGidndmNBQg...
A couple states away from our final destination we came to Everett, Pennsylvania, where Pam's family has a rich history. Earl and Carol Ann gave us A1 hospitality and showed us around their beautiful 400 acre property. https://youtu.be/0bC7DLtCUdU
Rustic Roots Sanctuary, Missouri
There is a little farm on the outskirts of St. Louis that we were lucky enough to stumble upon through HipCamp. https://youtu.be/PxjF64h_UnQ
Soldier’s Memorial Park, Kansas
https://youtu.be/SOfhcxfAsaQ We found a campsite a little ways off of route 70 called Soldiers Memorial Park out in the middle of nowhere on route 70. It had rave reviews, so we figured we would give it a shot. After about 20 minutes of driving down dirt roads through...
We made it across the Nevada dessert during a record breaking heatwave with no AC, we survived the loneliest highway in America in one of the least reliable cars in America, and we had climbed the 10,000 + foot pass to get to the greater Denver area. It was time for a...
Heaven’s Peace, Colorado
After 4 days of traveling in an un-air conditioned Vannagon during a record breaking heatwave, we limped into the quaint farm town of Loma, Colorado. We enjoyed the peaceful solitude of a small Al Paca farm called "Heaven's Peace." https://youtu.be/2r3OvYfSRxM
Made it to Utah
Just wanted to say...we made it to Utah! One night at a KOA for water, to recharge the batteries, and cool off in the pool.
Cave Lake National Park, Nevada
On the eastern side of Nevada off highway 50 is a little town called Ely with an awesome 100 year old train that is still running https://youtu.be/QGidndmNBQg
Spencer Hot Springs, Nevada
Vanhana survived Donner Pass, so we continued onto the infamous highway 50...aka the loneliest road in America. https://youtu.be/aMh85fZnPr8
First Night in Orchards Nest, California
After a long week of waiting on the van work to be completed, we finally spent a night under the stars at Orchards Nest. https://youtu.be/v20n--dHTt4
So about that last post...Just Kidding! After swinging out to the coast to visit some family, we were about 40 miles into the trip when our clutch completely failed in Vallejo. We were able to limp into a Marriott across from a Six Flags theme park... and that's where...
Manic packing... wrap up work projects...get the van checked out...kids made a mess, clean it up....go shopping...make sure the house is ready for renters....get the laundry put a way...why are we doing this again? Eventually the chaos fades away to the road, and you...

Yesterday we heard a weird noise in the rear of the van, and experienced some strange behaviors of the brakes. We took it to these fine folks at Ian's Speed Shop (thanks to @dvisme and @hiddenphoenix and friends) and they gave us A+ service and sent us on our way today. Thanks to all who helped.

Vahana Screening at the Lafayette Library
