Apr 23, 2010 - Sutter's Fort and Homeschooling

Homeschooling was probably the scariest part of this whole thing for me. Would I be able to handle being around the kids all day and would my patience hold out. I know how they are during homework time and if they acted like that I am not sure I will make it. We are assigned a teacher to help us with any problems along the way. She came to the house and went over all the school work. I was completely overwhelmed with the amount of paperwork and books she gave me. I did not expect that much stuff, where was I going to put it all! You think...

Apr 19, 2010 - A Dry Run

Even though the weather has been horrific we have finally got everything into storage. Yes, we have decided to store most of our belongings. We had a garage sale for a few things but it was a total flop. I have to say the donation place is very happy with us. We are staying in a campground that is a few miles from our house for two reasons. One, we wanted to do a test run. I went to Lowe’s and the Organize- It Store and purchased everything from shelving, to bowls that lay flat and even a bedside holder to keep my magazines, remotes and my...

Apr 2, 2010 - And so it begins...

When we started planning our trip and all the details; what to do with our “stuff”- should we sell or store it, how to handle the mail, what will our budget be, where did we want to go, how to tell the family, etc. I started seeing all these articles about “Living Your Life”, the Oprah magazine, on a few blogs, my friends that are life coaches. It was like the someone was trying to confirm that I should move forward with our plan. During the whole process we did everything we could to keep the fear in check. One article provided some great...

Jan 16, 2010 - Bear Valley Trail, Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County

Arch Rock is a 8.2 mile round trip hike from the Bear Valley Visitor Center in Point Reyes National Seashore. We took the Bear Valley trail from the visitor center and follow a small creek through the woods until it descends along Coast Creek all the way to the beach and Arch Rock. The trail took us to the top top of Arch Rock, where we had views of the beach and Drake’s bay. Few adventurous got down to the beach by backtracking slightly and scrambling down a steep trail which crosses Coast Creek. Check out the stunning pictures!

Jan 1, 2010 - Training Hill (Auburn State Recreation Park)

It is my first time in this trail. I got sick of doing mtb alone. California has a lot of outdoors and there is also a lot of women who do mtb. However, even with a lot of women doing that, it does not happen everyday or every weekend. Since I was a kid, I was fond of walking. It is the type of activity that I do not get tired. Desperate to find a group or association that does walking activity, I searched the internet to find that "there could be trail nuts there somewhere'. The internet did not disappoint. I found a group that does hiking...

Aug 9, 2009 - Home

We drove for 14 hours on Sunday to get home from about 100 miles north of Portland. Do you think we were homesick??? Our trip meter said we had gone about 9000 miles, we were gone for exactly 8 weeks, We used 840 gallons of gas, OUCH! We got about 11 miles to the gallon, not to bad, pulling our small home with us, and we averaged about 39 miles an hour. Thanks to all those gravel roads. We learned it is very easy driving to Alaska. You do not need a tour operator showing you the way. Just a map, (and a GPS is nice). And the spirit of...

Jun 3, 2008 - Day 3

Today we started off saying "Hasta la Vista Baby" to the King of Sacramento. The first 35 miles was along the most beutiful bike path that any of us had ever seen. It followed the American River all the way to Folsom Lake...at least I had recovered enough from the organizers that they did not try to ditch me at the prison of Johnny Cash fame (wooosh). Those from Concentric will see the premier outing of the fabulous biking shirt I got from them. I have to also pause for a second to express how impressed I am with Garmin customer service. I...

"Retirement" Journey

Sep 10, 2007 - Back to USA

At some point all great things must come to an end. Benton and I had the vacation of a life time. We enjoyed europe not only through the back door as Rick Steves would say, but through the alley ways, and small towns and lots of ferry crossing some small and some big. We enjoyed the local people their homes, towns, pets, music, great campgrounds, food. Saw a few americans along the way, but very few. Saw incredible scenery, cathedrals, castles, palaces, quaint towns with canals, great architecture, bicycles, hikers, families having fun...

Seeley`s europe trip

Jun 29, 2007 - Interlude in Auburn

We spent a quiet day in Auburn, walking along the ridges. The walk then followed an old miners ditch which is now used for irrigation. The walk concluded with a walk through old Auburn and a stop at an old style drug store with a soda fountain. We relived memories as we enjoyed in ice cream soda.
