First time Boondocking

August 23, 2021 On August 20th we left West Virgina and found a farm to boondock with through Harvest Hosts. It was our first time using this app or boon docking so we really didn't know what to expect. The drive took longer than we realized so we arrived just as it was beginning to get dark. Our hosts met us out back on their ATV where the farm began. It was called Bent Limb farm and they primarily had Alpacas, but there were also goats, giant pigs, chickens, geese, turkeys, and rabbits. Some of the goats were also of the fainting variety, but…

However, when we arrived at the campground we saw that some cabinets in the living room had the bottom…

The Journey Begins

August 10, 2021 Our journey began on August 10th. We had been planning to visit Luke's mother and grandmother at their new summer cabin in Buckhannon, West Virginia and they had expected us to get there days ago, but we were still waiting for our hitch to finish being installed. You know how that went this year. You ordered something, it took forever to arrive, then it shows up with the wrong parts. That's about what happened with our hitch being installed. I had my last day of work on August 6th which was bittersweet. My team gave me a thoughtful bunch of gifts.…
