I know my fellow family campers with wee ones can relate. We certainly paid our dues over the years. Eventually they develop proficiency. :)

A look at my first official trip back to Georgia as a tourist -- a jam-packed trip filled with college, paddling, geocaching, and Dragon Con.

After watching Fred fly off to college last month, I'm rewinding six years into the depths of the Val in Real Life archives to look back on my thoughts about travel with kids -- the challenges, the evolution, and the value.

Join me for a trip down memory lane?

Big shout out to my pals at Outdoor Families Magazine and Moosefish for a great roundup on raising adventurous girls.

Y'all have watched Fred and George grow up over the years on the blog as we pursued homeschooling adventures all over North America. Now Fred is off on his own big adventure -- college!

My current travels are still disjointed but gotta say I've managed it way better this year! I actually feel ready for Dragon Con festivities to begin.

Not many folks quite get why I love my adopted home state -- to them, it's an expanse of desolation. Far from it.

Sometimes you're in your own way, am I right? That's been me for the last couple of years. I used to have my shit together and now I don't. I have all sorts of reasons and excuses but let me tell ya, that's changing right now.
