About

The Encarta Dictionary defines the word meander as follows: 1. follow a twisting route; to follow an indirect route or course, especially one with a series of twists and turns 2. wander slowly and aimlessly; to move in a leisurely way, especially for pleasure.

My name is Kim. My life changed drastically in June of 2007. A year ago I lived life as a single mother of a college student; a teacher of 2nd graders; a caregiver for 4 dogs, 2 cats and 2 horses; and caretaker of a large farm.  I now live with a new husband in a 21′ x 8′ foot box that is hitched behind a Ford truck fully loaded with 2 kayaks, 2 canoes, 2 bikes and all the camping equipment we’d need for any type of outdoor trip.

Was is hard to go from my normal day to day life to one filled with adventure, travel and relaxation? Of course I had to learn to be a “couple” again and it was hard to watch Kristin (my daughter) grow up and move out on her own. It was also hard to leave a career I loved because of all the great kids that I had the privilage to teach. Leaving all my four footed friends to new homes was hard but I can honestly say they all went to homes better than I gave them. After a period of adjustment, I now wouldn’t trade the life I lead for any other.

This blog will not be a travel blog….telling the things we did and where we did them. It will tell about the interesting stories that have happened along the way. I hope you’ll join me and leave your comments when you visit.

    • I found this poem at Yosemite itself posted on a sign in front of one of the trees. I did not know it was a copyrighted poem. No author was given. Trees are a favorite subject of mine. Their forms are very pleasing to the eye. Thanks for the visit and the comment!
