Ha!! We joined a gym!! A nationwide gym!! While we are on the road, we can park Little Liberty right in the parking lot, go in and do a little workout 💪and take our showers in there! 💦 🚿 
Thanks to Matt and Diana of @adventurousway 💑 they told us about this adaptation to tiny living aka #vanlife 🚐

And know what’s even cooler? Some have Aqua Massages, haircuts, smoothie bars and a place to sit and work! Oh! And we can also download our Netflix on our device all while doing that! So, for $22 a month, we can do all that. Now granted, some months we may not be near them but when we are, we will utilize Planet Fitness to our max! 
When and where theirs a will, there’s a way! 🧭 
And no, we are not affiliates. Just sharing.

*swipe left* A couple days ago, we spent some time at the lovely South Shore Wine Company on Lake Erie. Ironically, it’s in my hometown of North East, PA. 🍇  Evelyn was fun and friendly as she poured our wine-tasting samples. We also decided to buy their Gruner Veltliner to serve with dinner in our RV🍷 South Shore Wine Company was originally established in 1864. The wine cellar, original to its day, is now home to newly Re-established sister winery of Mazda Vineyards, one of the oldest in the state of Pennsylvania. 🍷 In the 1920s, it pretty much went unused  with very few visitors due to prohibition. Today, the aromas come alive it the wine cellar tasting room! 🍇 for your 15% discount on your new Harvest Hosts membership, visit our blog in profile and click on the Harvest Hosts graphic! .

This guy...I love him to pieces. He always strives to be his very best. He is tired though. So I supported his decision to take the next semester off from school so he can learn and enjoy our new motorhome. 🤓Here, he’s taking a break from his final PowerPoint presentation. He tries so hard. And he’s wicked smart. I’m so proud of him. Going back to school after 3 decades of dedicated and selfless service to our Country and at an age when he’s supposed to settle down, he studies. 📖 But he needs a break so he can also enjoy summer together with me, spend time with our Grandson, family and of course, catch his breath. ♥️
I have to admit, it was nice to see him away from his MacBook for a few hours today. He joined me for a couple glasses of wine and some vittles down by the creek where we are hiding. We enjoyed listening to the waterfalls and birds 🦅 That wine 🍷 just tasted so much better.
So, here’s to you, Dan! Enjoy that wine! School will be out soon!

“Down by the River”! Little Liberty stands alone all by herself amidst the trees at an undisclosed location for the overnight. We try to park her in full sun 🌞 to absorb as much as we can through her solar panels so we don’t have to run our generator. ⚡️ Our Winnebago View 24D came equipped with two 100ah flex solar panels and a Magnum 1000 inverter. It also came stock with two cheap 12v lead acid batteries. 🤮 
But, in a few days, we are going to change it up by swapping out those inefficient batteries for our Battle Born lithium GC2’s. 💙 Until then, we have to be overly cautious with our energy usage. 😢 Once our solar and energy management systems are custom to our liking, we will be back in business for full boondocking capability! We can’t wait!!! 🥰😍😎

Well, that didn’t take long for Kandi and Krissie to stake their claim in our new @winnebagorvs View. 
Though it’s 85 degrees outside, they’re enjoying their hot summer day slumber. Sofa by day and Murphy bed by night! They are slowly adjusting to more constant travel. They are learning to live in less space. However, they miss our recliners and afternoon and evening movie naps on our laps. They also miss taking naps in their beds while we work. Baby steps though. Soon we will start taking them 🐱🐱 outside on their leashes so they can hang with us outside. Until then, they’ll have to get used to tighter quarters and they will. Cats have survived on small boats for centuries so they should be just fine. .

Who can say they’ve hand-fed Bison? We visited cook’s Bison Ranch in Wolcottville, Indiana a couple weeks ago. What an incredible experience to have them so close and to see and feel them eat from our hands. And, we were privileged to see a brand new baby Bison who was born the day before! ❤️ These majestic creatures will always have a soft spot in our ♥️s. In fact, we’ve written about the Bison in our blog several times. Go check ‘em out. Just type ‘Bison’ in the search bar of our blog. .

Cool story *swipe* When I was a  real little girl, I lived in Erie, Pennsylvania. When my mother remarried years after I lost my father through a tragic accident, we became a blended family 👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👦‍👦so I had two more brothers

Well, on my step-side of the family, my great aunt lived in the caretaker’s cottage 🏠 part of Erie Land Lighthouse. 
Occasionally, we would go visit. We never got to go up in the light itself but we’d play outside in the big yard. It had a huge Chestnut 🌰 tree so those became our weapons of choice during play and/or quarrels. 
Today, the light still stands and still lights. It was an endearing good memory for my brother to spark. 
Erie sure has grown up since I left the area shortly after graduating high school many years ago. The city still thrives on the lake maritime industry as an important port for coal, ore and metals. But what used to be a dirty industrial waterfront has become a visitors’ metropolis full of hotels, restaurants, the Maritime Museum, and the U.S.S. Niagara from the War of 1812. So, don’t think of Erie as ‘dreary Erie, mistake on the lake’. It’s slowly making great impressions! .

Many have messaged us asking how we carry our @perceptionkayak “bomb-pops”. We wanted to take them right away so while we were at the Heartland Owners Rally in Goshen, we bought a Vertiyak until we decide on which bikes we will buy which will require us to look further into a different rack that carries both, 🚲 and 🛶 Until then, this will transport our kayaks wherever we go. We look forward to conducting our product review soon. You’ll want to read all about it.

Sometimes we each need alone time. Because living in such a small space can present some tension between us. And nothing finer than sitting out in the wide open to catch our breath. Oh and the views are a bonus. 🌅 
I remember when we owned our sticks and bricks 🏡 if we needed solitude, Dan would escape to his man cave or I would go down in my craft studio. Both of which were in our finished basement with few windows. The thing is, we rarely went outside. 🧭 
Looking back, boy did we miss out! Life passed us by while we locked 🔒 ourselves in four walls. We’d hide. But we’ve learned that only stifled our creativity and inner peace✌️ Now, we seem happier and more grounded. And, our marriage seems richer because we’ve found a new kind of solitude. ❤️ so, where do you like to go to meditate and think quietly? .

And there she is! Our little silver bullet, “Little Liberty”! We were yearning to downsize and researched for a year. And now, here we are! From a 42’ Heartland fifth wheel to 25’ Winnebago View motorhome! 😳 It’s the 24D model. It has a Murphy bed and larger galley. She also has over-cab lost bed we use for storage until our Grandson can go with us. Little Liberty has a beautiful exterior full-body paint finish. She is equipped with a Cummins Onan diesel generator and rear stabilizers.

The transition wasn’t easy as we had to get rid of about 75% of the stuff in our fifth wheel. We sold big pieces and gave away or donated the rest. At the same time, we were volunteering at the Heartland Owners Rally in Goshen. But our patience and tenacity paid off. 🤜🤛👍 So now, we are back on the road where our nomadic souls and hearts are afire. Now, we can fit most anywhere and enjoy backroad travel through small town America! .

So, there we were enjoying a bottle of wine when a biker couple came onto the patio. Since we were bikers awhile ago, we invited them over to join us. Then, another couple who was intrigued by our cute little RV came in. So we invited them too. And there we were! Making new friends talking about each other’s lives, families and awesome places we’ve been. Chatting with locals like them also gives us ideas on other places to visit. We’ve said it before. Our journey is also about the peeps we meet. We were invited back to park in the biker’s driveway next time. We heard they are excellent cooks! Sounds like an off we should take up. .

We are on the road with our new @winnebagorvs View! And our stop last night was at a @harvesthosts Sandy Ridge Vineyards and Winery in Norwalk, OH. Cute old barn redone with rustic interior and cute gift shop! We were greeted and welcomed by Beth and shown out to the patio of umbrella tables and inviting gas fire pit. Our friendly and server, Julie, was on the ball. We had an awesome affordable early dinner of an amazing Mediterranean salad and bbq’d shrimp paired with their Pinot Blanca. And this ended our evening nicely with a view of our View! Can’t beat that, now can we?
