Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

Splendor in the Desert: A Trip Through The Mojave

Exploring the Desert

It has been an eye-opening experience living in the desert over the past year.  We've enjoyed the Chihuahuan Desert, the Mojave Desert, the Sonoran Desert, and the Great Basin Desert.  
{Did you know the U.S. had that many deserts?}
Our preconceived notions of what the desert would be like were rendered faulty.  There's a lot of brown, and some reds, with little green.  Large, jagged rocks, and low dry basins.  

But, clear, deep blue skies dominate.  Vibrant reds, oranges, yellows, and purples explode in sunsets.  In spring, yellow, purple, and orange blooms start to appear along the roadways.  
The Mojave Desert of Death Valley National Park and the Las Vegas area has exposed us to history, and a deeper appreciation for our dry, western deserts.
