Fall in Wyoming

Today is our last day in Wyoming. The Car is packed, the bunkhouse has been cleaned, and we're watching Tim Tebow play for the Broncos. It's really strange that after 7 months, we're leaving. Jason put it best after I picked him up at the Cody airport on Friday - the hour long drive to the ranch feels like coming home. And right now? I've never seen it more beautiful than it was on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. We'll be back, though, so we can't be sad, and the adventures ahead of us? They're pretty awesome.

Speaking of those adventures, here's a recap of our upcoming adventures: Orlando to see Jason's family and go to Disneyworld, Eastern Caribbean cruise, drive to California, pick up some work - subbing, caroling, and Jason will come back to the ranch for two weeks of work. After Christmas drive back to Florida, go on a Western Caribbean cruise and celebrate Christmas with Jason's family, fly to South Africa to work with Bridges of Hope for two weeks, fly back to the States, fly to Bahamas for five days to get our next level dive licenses. Drive back to California to pick up more work. And sometime in late March/early April, drive back to Wyoming for our second season at the Hawkeye.

PHEW! Did you get all that? We're going to try to see as many states as possible on our drives back and forth across the country. I've seen about 29 states total so far, and Jason has been to every state but two (which are not on our route this year: Oregon and Hawaii).

So be sure to check back for updates from the road and our super adventures! We are so blessed to have the freedom and finances to be able to explore, and plan to make the most of this opportunity!


  1. woohoo! Goodbyes are always bittersweet, but you have so much to look forward to in the coming months! And seriously, Oregon better be part of your route next time :)

  2. You have so much going on! I'm so happy you'll be back soon :)
