Life as Inbetweeners

As we've traveled through life's journey, both before and after we became Vagabloggers, we've been called many things. We've been placed into many social genres and have been identified as being part of many particular cliques. Some of the labels placed on us have been: Rock Climbers, Hippies, Vegetarians, Van Dwellers, Couch Surfers, Coffee Geeks, Drifters and just plain Weirdos. Funny thing is, almost all of these labels have been applied by those outside of these social circles. If you asked the people inside these circles, invariably most of them would reply "They're cool, but they're not one of us."

Recently, this paradox has made itself all-the-more clear while we've been camped out at Miguel's Pizza in Kentucky's Red River Gorge. Read more

We Live in a Van! 6 Months. 5,000 Miles. 5 Nuggets.

6 months ago in a land far, far away: Our hearts raced and our minds filled with excitement as we realized we were pulling out of the driveway to our house for the last time.  This was it.  The moment we'd talked about for the last 2 years.  Happening.  Really.  We headed down the road in giddy anticipation for our first real night as van dwelling vagabonds.  So many realizations floated through my head as I piloted our new home out of suburbia.  Filled with euphoria, my focus shifted back and forth from the road to the windshield as oncoming headlights hit the glass and passed from bottom to top, bottom to top.  Each car making it's way past us on their rhythmic return to their assigned suburban plot.  We find our back door exit from the neighborhood and head down a dirt road to some camper-friendly public lands.  Street lights and houses fade in the dust behind us.   Read more

Nebraska: Small story for a big state

So we figured we couldn't pass through an entire state and not say a thing about it. And Nebraska is deserving of some credit in our little journey. With that being said... our Nebraska experience:

The first town we decided to stop in was North Platte. This little town sits just off Interstate 70 on the western side of Nebraska. It just so happened to be the 4th of July as well. We realize quickly that there wasn't going to be much in North Platte and decide to stop at one of the only open businesses in town: Wal-Mart. Redneck Americana galore. A nice variety of shall we say "hefty" people proudly traipsing around in their XXXL cut-off-sleeve American flag T shirts and such. Some of the biggest babies I'd ever seen, one actually munching on potato chips while his mother wheeled him around the store.  Are babies even supposed to be capable of eating potato chips? Read more
