Great Smokies Bound!

2014 West then East, Road Trip


In the twelve weeks since we left home we have done a grand loop around our great country. We’ve been to San Francisco and Boston and so many places in between. Tonight we are headed in the direction of our house in the Smokies. A funny thing has happened to us in the last year. We have spent so much time in the T@B that it feels like home. We’ve lived in it for six out of the last twelve months! Although we will be glad to pause and regroup at the house, we expect the urge to hitch up the gypsy wagon to overtake us again soon. These last twelve weeks have been exciting, fun, and educational. We’ve really enjoyed the lifestyle, the places we’ve been to and the people we’ve met or visited with along the way

    When the urge strikes, head to our house, the beer is chillin’ and the burgers are ready!

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
