Day 19 (Tuesday, October 24, 2023) I’m back at work today … but fortunately, my work-from-home extends to my home-on-wheels, given the Starlink internet connection! So while we’re stuck in the campsite (can’t get too far away from the router to avoid losing signal), we’re still on the road – leaving options for further trip exploration right outside the (trailer) door. Day 20 (Wednesday, October 25, 2023) Day 2 of working (it’s going to be a short 3-day week, but … Read More

Day 15 (Friday, October 20, 2023) How has it been 2 weeks already!? Well, the good news is, that the vacation isn’t over yet. But it is time to pack up and leave Goblin Valley, and after a pit stop in Green River, UT (Hello I-70!) to get the truck & trailer washed and groceries restocked, we are heading back out into the wilderness, to explore the northern part of the San Rafael Swell (north of I-70).

Day 11 (Monday, October 16, 2023) Today’s plan includes a drive west, not all the way to Capitol Reef NP, but into the 4-wheel drive area around the Bentonite Hills. Having seen a vlog post online just shortly before our tip, we knew we had to add these to our sights. The trek north of Hwy 24 starts out like many other off-road trips, but about a mile in we face – a river. Or maybe only a creek – … Read More

Day 5 (Tuesday, October 10, 2023) Taking a walk down memory lane to get to today’s program: Back in 2019, I had planned a trailer/RV trip with my parents – in May 2020, we were going to travel through Utah & more for about 2 weeks, exploring National Park, Monuments & more. By late March 2020, I had to cancel it all, as we were all in lockdown globally due to the COVID pandemic. Always the optimist, I rescheduled for … Read More

Day 1 (Friday, October 6, 2023) It’s Friday midday and the trailer is packed, truck ready to go, cat & house sitters on their way to take over Pixl & Nova duty – and we are off! After almost 2 ½ years of no “real” vacation away from any stress and just Kirk and I (plus J.T.), we are finally ready to hit the road again to Get Away for 3 weeks! We’re returning to Utah, where we’ve gotten lost … Read More
