As a full-time sleeping passenger, I’m just along for the ride. My Mom, Dad and sister have a few things that things that should be common sense while traveling through the US. We have all seen these things at least once and my parents wish someone would listen. Low and behold, I am listening and giving them all the love and letting the know that everything will be ok.
Here is the listen of common things that should be common knowledge, all from my prospective of course!

In no particular order of course. We add a new state and a celebrate Thanksgiving in Kentucky. We spent our Thanksgiving hiking in caves. From hiking caves, viewing a horse race at Churchill Downs, seeing how baseball bats were made and tasting some of the Kentucky Bourbon, we journeyed into the state of Kentucky and just scratched the surface of what this beautiful state has to offer. We jammed backed our 2 weeks here. Join us for our reviews of the western part of Kentucky. We will be back to visit the eastern part soon.

We made it. Seems like just yesterday we set out on our adventure to find a new home. We soon realized our home was with us all along. Home is not just a place but is the people we spend it with. Our family of 3 and a our princess dog have been away from our stick and brick home for 365 days and nights. We have celebrated 3 birthdays, We celebrated our 4th Wedding Anniversary, and visited 15 states. We went to Alaska on a 7 day cruise. Amber has flown “home” twice. We have had a broken ankle, a visit to Thor Warranty, seen snow, seen both the Pacific and Atlantic, and seen Bigfoot in Oregon.
We lived everyday to the fullest and with minimal stuff. We eat at home most nights and play most weekends. We learn how to make do with what we have, we worry about the weight of our bus, we learn that we have to work as a team to get anything done, but most importantly we smile more and love more.

There are 60 National Parks throughout the United States. All parks have a unique story on how they became part of the National Park Service and Cuyahoga Valley in Northeast Ohio is no different. Cuyahoga means “crooked” to the Indians. The Cuyahoga River runs through the park. Throughout the park there are many examples of the early inhabitants. Some of the homes that are still remaining have a New England style design. In order to preserve the land the National Park Service designated the land as a recreation area in 1974. In 2000, the park was given the designation of a National Park.
