Anybody else feel a little guilty sharing travel pics? Maybe that’s part of why I’ve slowed down with posting every little thing.. Baja is amazing and I don’t want to rub it in your face. But I guess that’s why there’s an unfollow button. Just remember you are only seeing the highlight reel. 😅 
So here’s where we’re parked right now, and this is high tide. It’s pretty wild how far out and close up the water comes.

You can spot miss Trixi in the passenger window.. she loves the beach and watching the waves just as much as the humans do!

We’ve been completely spoiled traveling in bae’s new rig for this trip. It fits all 3 dogs dogs + 2 humans pretty fantastically - but now that I’ve been here and seen the beach camping, I’m dreaming of downsizing to a perfect Baja-ready tiny rig. Something bigger than a van, but smaller and more nimble than my 27 footer old beast! Maybe a truck camper? Maybe just a smaller class c? Or a custom 4x4 passenger van? So many dreams to dream 😍

Anybody else feel a little...

This is my front step right now! 😵

I’ve been in San Felipe for 2 weeks and we’re heading south soon to hit Guerrero Negro, Mulege, and every other part we can feast our eyes on throughout this beautiful peninsula*

I know I’ve barely scratched the surface and this has already been one of my favorite RV adventures. The pace of life here is whatever you make of it. The culture is a brand new experience. The food is crazy cheap and delicious.

Next up are whales, maybe some hot springs, orange filled groves, and hopefully catching up with friends who are all over the Baja peninsula ahead of us! *must have cell service ;)

This is my front step...

Hello, I am a poncho with legs and this is my cactus friend, Big-Prick. 😛

Family photo 🤦🏻‍♀️Trying to get my dog to look at the camera on the beach... futile. 😂 It’s windy today but we’ve have some perfect weather and I’m in fricking love with just lazing here - Trixi is too.

✨THOUGHT EXPERIMENT✨Can you imagine, for a moment, that we’ve traded physical bodies?
That you now live in mine and I now live in yours?
How would your assumptions and preconceived notions about me feel, if you now lived in my body - one I didn’t choose?

And how would you feel about me knowing your body as well?

I encourage this trading-places experiment because, in the last year, I’ve really felt the weight of how a preconceived notion can impact so many little areas of life, and the beach has helped to reflect on this a bit more and figure out how to say this.

Sure, I often feign goofiness and fun to avoid intimidating others (because that’s what we’re conditioned to do, when us vag-owners are capable of such scary things as installing solar and changing tires, right?) but let’s be serious for a second - please evaluate how you view young women (yes, even you, my fellow chicas) - and whether you think of us as peers or as [insert assumption based on your own fears and insecurities and conditioning.. pick your poison.] Millennial women are a valid population whether you like it or not. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Yes, even the partying, the too-pretty-to-be-friends-with, the too-quiet-and-weird, the dont-wear-enough-makeup, the wear-too-much-makeup, and the constantly-instagramming women.

I guess my point is really that whatever crutch you use to write us off, is your issue... not ours. Sure it’s easy to validate your projections when you make them someone else’s problem - esp. when societal norms back you up - which is why I really want to ask you to try to trade places with me and whatever assumptions you have about my life as a millennial, female digital nomad, and ask yourself if they still feel valid.

I didn’t choose this age or this body. So is it still fair to be respected or taken seriously any less than anyone else? Ex.. a 45 yr old white male lawyer? 🤔

Just something that has been on my mind. We’ gonna live a satisfying life either way. So are you gonna join us in having fun, drinking margs, etc while still rocking business and technical shit, or do ya just wanna sit in your blindfold and keep acting surprised each time we display multifaceted capabilities?

✨THOUGHT EXPERIMENT✨Can you imagine, for...

Buenos dias desde San Felipe 🤩 We had a nice morning walk on the beach and Trixi enjoyed digging at clam bubbles for a bit... until she talked @_skych’s Scout into running around like hooligans and murdering a large seagull in broad daylight. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Other than that, it was a peaceful coffee-and-sunshine laden morning.

Buenos dias desde San Felipe...

Mexico is rough so far. ;) It’s my baby @dustydeezel’s birthday, we’re parked at a gorgeous beach with a bar that delivers breakfast burritos to be RVs via walkie talkie, and a man who delivers pina coladas to you at your beach work office in a frickin pineapple. Not to mention amazing internet speeds (but let’s not talk about the setup frustration. 😅) Life is hella good. 💜

Trying to Blog When You Have the Attention Span of a Mouse

Hellooooo, dear readers!

I was going to write a post about Crater Lake National Park, but have gone into a wormhole, so I’ve decided to explain (in part) why I blog so infrequently.

As some of you may know, I work online for a living, managing the digital marketing activities of small businesses. So at times I take online work very seriously. But when it comes to my own blog… it’s a bit like a chef trying to cook at home, y’know’wht’am’sayin’?

So here is how my morning thought process has gone so far… all to write one blog…

  1. I should write a blog! Let’s start with my most recent trip, Crater Lake…..
  2. I should really figure out a better way to add pictures to my blog, since my photography is getting better. I wonder if I should use Flickr?
  3. *Starts Googling the best way to integrate Flickr with WordPress*
  4. Gosh yaknow, if I’m going to be taking this more seriously and using Flickr to integrate to WordPress.. should I watermark my images so that people don’t steal them from Flickr?
  5. *Starts Googling watermarking/copyright protection*
  6. Okay I’ve decided I shouldn’t rely on watermarking. Maybe I should find one of those reverse image search services so that I can just be notified instead of having to worry about it?
  7. *Starts Googling copyright protection services*
  8. Hmm, this looks like a good website. Let me see what others think.
  9. *Reads 5 useless blogs criticizing minor annoyances on the service I’m checking out*
  10. Well that sounds good! I’ll sign up!
  11. (During sign up)… gosh my glasses lenses sure are getting scratchy. It’s a little hard to see this sign up form, and it’ll be hard to see my images while I do all of this and blog.
  12. *Starts Googling whether I can use car scratch remover on glasses*

At this point I’ve realized I’m not going to get a blog about Crater Lake done today, because I’m about to go try some scratch polish on my glasses before I even put “pen to paper.”

So wish me luck with my personal-blog mouse-brain. Hopefully you’ll get a real post soon! I just gotta get these scratches out of my glasses first…
