Checking back in for Dewey Demo Day #2!

Time sure does fly when you’re tearing a trailer apart and solving … More 1.4.20 Dewey Demo Day #2
Surprise! We are officially Trailer Trash!! 😉 If you haven’t already heard, Alex and I purchased a trailer about a month and a half ago. But not just any trailer … a teardrop trailer, and we’ve named her Dewey. Dewey The Dewdrop, to be exact.

On September 10th, I entered my “late-twenties,” I guess you can say. I turned 27! That whole saying “age … More 10.16 Celebrating 27 in Yosemite National Park

A couple of weeks back, I went camping with a group of friends in Joshua Tree! While this won’t really be a wordy blog post by any means, I thought I’d share some of the photos I took over our weekend spent there! One goal that I’m working towards this year is utilizing my DSLR … More 4.29 Marty’s First Camping Trip; Joshua Tree!
A couple of months back, my neighbor, Lauren, was telling me about one of her sister’s camping trips, and about how she was staying somewhere called “Hip Camp.” I didn’t think much about it at the time – I just tucked away the information in the back of my brain and figured it would come … More 10.25 Hip Camping in Joshua Tree
