The adventures of Pioneer Girl travelling with enthusiastic Camper Barn Owl Guy

Started as a blog about my trip from Pittsburgh to California in a Ford Pickup, hauling a 30' refurbed trailer/camper. Ah, California Dreaming, 'n all that. Found that adventures can be long distance or in your own neighborhood... I look for my own twist on local sites, don't take the known for granted...and always find something new. It's easy, just open your eyes..

Freedom and Compartments

Good morning from Pioneer Girl!  GPS shows we are stil in Pittsburgh, PA.

Yes, our skeedaddle was skeedonkled by the Ford having some issues which got fixed late last night.  After the initial frustration, we decided to postpone until Saturday morning and here we are.  Ready to git On The Road.  We are currently in the process of locating, identifying, and sorting various required medications and sundry vitamins, etc.  Pioneer Girl is already organized in the little weekly container, S-M-T-W-TH-F-S, very organized as usual.  Mr Camper Guy, heretofore known as Barn Owl Guy which is more appropriate, Barn Owl Guy with some camper experience. Barn Own Guy had to run over to his house to try to locate a particular prescription, hopefully he has found it.  I hesitated about my blood pressure prescriptions but decided to drop it in the container anyway.  I'm thinking if my blood pressure is elevated because of work situation, then maybe being out in the open road with certain freedoms may improve my condition.  Afterall, I do work out, do yoga and pilates, (packed the yoga mat for early am yoga) am mostly a vegetarian with superduper green juicing skills.  (that is a whole nother story cause the food on the trip is not conducive to much vegetarianism, and i can't pack my juicer so this in itself may be stressful).  We furnished the trailer with ample canned items, tuna, a few steaks and yep turkey kolbassi.  We have it all organized...the entire living arrangement in the trailer is compartmentalized, literally.  Everything is little and tiny.

We are excited about getting the first leg out of town, the freedom on the road, hauling all shtuff in the little compartments in the house, and finding our next GPS location.


  1. I think you guys are never going to leave your driveway and you are just going to make up stories about your trip.

  2. Keep an eye out for road kill. You never know what's for dinner.
