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.

An Osprey's Dinner

Tucked in at the top of a dying pine, an Osprey couple has dinner.

Mother Osprey sits watching her clutch of eggs high atop a pine tree.

Father Osprey flies in with tonight's dinner...a nice, juicy fish for Mother Osprey.

Daddy drops off the fish to a hungry mommy.

Luckily, Lake New Melones is nearby packed full of fish.

Mom and Dad chat about the day, future plans, the need for a nest repair.

"Thanks for getting dinner babe."

"No problem dear.  Enjoy your meal."

"Woohoo little eggies.  Watch dad dance.

Mommy gets to enjoy a meal in silence.

This looks like a nice spot to pick at fish.

Mmmmm, great fish dinner.
