New ideas!

I found the PERFECT trailer on Craigslist at the start of March. It was handmade almost completely out of wood. It was teardrop-ish but I could mostly stand up inside. It ended up getting sold to someone else before I could go pick it up but it kicked up a bit of travel inspiration in me. I have been home since early January but I'm feeling ready to get out there again now. Part one of my post-graduation travel adventures began with a roadtrip turned long-term stay at the most incredible farm in Nova Scotia. I had planned to live out of my car for that trip but ended up moving into a cute little on-site cabin and redesigned my trip. After five months in that wonderful community, I returned home to regroup. I am planning to start my next journey this June with a brief two-week trip to visit a friend in San Francisco and make it all the way up to Oregon for a bit of exploration. In October, I plan to move full time into my Honda CR-V with my cat, Ruth. She has been traveling with me for the past year and a half and she is so wonderful to have as an adventure buddy. We used the CR-V last time as well but with a different setup. The bed was too high to sit up in which was fine because we spend most of the time outside anyways, but there were a couple of rainy days that it would have been nice to have a covered space to sit. Also with the previous build, I would have to set up and take down my sleeping arrangements every time I moved the car because the front seats were pushed all the way forward for it to fit. This time, I plan to take out my two rear seats so the bed can be lower, build a bed frame that fits exactly between my trunk and the passenger seat so it does not slide around, and organize it in a way that I do not have to move everything around when I want to drive. I am also hoping to purchase an awning for the side of my car so we could have a covered outdoor space as well that would help keep rain, snow, and sun off the car. So, no trailer for me ... yet ... but I am super excited to try a design that suits my needs better inside of the car I already have. We'll see where things go from there!

See you on the road,

Does my cat actually like to travel??

There seem to be a lot of strong ideas out there about whether or not cats should be outdoors, travel, and do pretty much anything except sleep in the sun. Honestly, how could we know? Based on the be
