Dog-Off Leash Area at Cherry Creek State Park

A weekend in Denver (visit #2)

We did this on our first Big Trip: camped in the Airstream beside our friends’ house in Northeast Denver. Like, in the city! It was a blast both times. We ate a ton, drank good beer, and had some adventures around...

Two feet in Nebraska and two feet in Iowa

One day in Omaha, NE

We were in Kansas City, headed for Denver, so it seemed the logical next stop was Omaha. Neither of us knew much about the city, other than the College World Series is held there (because we come from a school...

One day in Kansas City, MO

Technically, we were here two nights and one day, if you’re wondering how we managed to cram in so much alcohol consumption. Overall, we found Kansas City to be interesting aesthetically, but we were turned off by all the closed...

One night in Nashville, TN (visit #3)

After spending a few days with family in NC and GA, we are officially setting out on our two-month Big Trip 2! First (third?) stop on our way west: Nashville, an urban camping destination we love, just for a night. Read...

Five days in Asheville, NC (visit #6)

…and we’re back in Asheville. As I mentioned in my Sylva post, we needed a quick trip to knock the dust off our Airstreaming skills before our next Big Trip in a couple weeks. You may know that we are...

Trip planning: Southwest for the late fall

We haven’t even started our next Airstream trip (leaving next week!) (possibly subbing Babcock State Park in WV for Nashville as the TN State Fair has bumped us from our preferred campground at the Fairgrounds Nashville), but we’re already deep...

Three days in Asheville, NC (visit #5)

Yes, Asheville again. I’ll keep this short since we keep going to Asheville and visiting a lot of the same places, and I promise to write an Asheville Favorites post soon! [IT’S HERE! I WROTE IT! FINALLY!] Clearly we love...
