Less Than Glamorous

Since we share on here how much fun our job is and the adventures we have I thought it was about time to let you see some of the sucky parts. When I say we travel I mean it, we are itinerate workers. We do not set our own travel schedule, even though I do... Continue Reading →

Invasion of the Tiny Turtles

A few years ago while camping we were invaded by turtles, matting turtles. Yesterday we were caught in the middle of the end result of that activity when a hatch of tiny snapping turtles invaded our event site. While Josh taking a call he noticed the first one crawling from under the truck, unfortunately in... Continue Reading →

Don’t Ask Me

You know why really grinds my gears? Being asked overly personal questions by strangers, just because my seems like your business doesn't mean it is. When someone finds out how much Josh and I travel with this job a usually reaction is a bit of shock followed by the same questions, every time. I know... Continue Reading →

Back Out There

My Little Red Notebook

While I am a technology person, nearly inseparable from my Blackberry, I do also carry an "old school" date book. A hot little red number by Moleskine. Honestly I would be lost without it. A few months ago I misplaced it for two days and could hardly remember my name. It seems silly but there... Continue Reading →
