Happy Holidays 2016

However and wherever you spend these closing days of 2016, I wish for you love, joy, warmth and comfort.  May all hearts open wide to send out peace everywhere. I will be publishing a big update after the holidays.  We’ve been very busy these last two months.  Until then, be merry and shine brightly! Ann

Great Gifts for Egg Travellers

I love to share the great things I find that make Egg travelling more comfortable and efficient.  I particularity love it when these products come from a really nice company. Today’s share is LeeValley.com out of Canada.  I just purchased several items from their Gifts catalog and am very happy with them:   Photo credit: […]

The options we chose for our Casita

  When we first decided to leave the tent, I thought we were headed in the direction of a Scamp Camper.  As we started to look into it, we found out that there are several lightweight fiberglass Egg makers so my Hub, the consummate researcher, began his internet queries and a spreadsheet was born.  We […]

Thoughts on a Nomadic Life

The topic of travelling for long parts of the year comes up a lot.  We aren’t yet retired, so this can be an academic sort of meandering at this point.  I’m doing my research though.  I’m a dreamer. I love to see a world of possibility and abundance.  The Hub and I have been living […]

The August 2017 Solar Eclipse

There many wonderful sites out there showing the path of the eclipse.  This is my favorite:  http://xjubier.free.fr/en/site_pages/solar_eclipses/TSE_2017_GoogleMapFull.html Missouri has just opened up their reservation page for the three day minimum reservation of the eclipse dates (8/18-8/21/17).  Normally MO won’t allow reservations for future years (one need wait til Jan 1st).  So, reservations are filling fast. […]


There are many ways to go about adding solar to your arsenal of energy generating– essential for boondocking(non shore power situations). It seems just the propane detector and fridge (running on propane but still pulling electricity for the electronics) drain the battery in a day or two.  Solar makes a gas generator unnecessary for keeping […]

Words to Heed

It’s in the early mornings before my family awakens that I spend a little time talking to The Center of the Universe, Source, God, Abba,  Buddha–or Love (because all those words boil down to God for me).  Sometimes, right before periods of big change in my life, the Universe will answer me back.  Generally, that means […]

Camping on Rend Lake Il, Gangster Ghosts and George Harrison

There are little towns all across America that boast a claim to fame or historic event that puts them on the map of worthy visits.  Some lucky towns have tireless and generous citizens who work to preserve the history through murals, museums, oddities and public sculptures.  Benton Il is just such a town.  Downtown, the […]

Special Delivery

This post is a bit of departure from my  travel and Egg stories so I hope you will bear with me. Yesterday, I went to our tiny local post office and there being a que, I waited outside in the little vestibule.  The woman ahead of me, motioned me in, saying we’d move the line […]
