Although this is just a practice run to get the kinks out and learn the nuances of living full time in a motorhome, we were excited to get out of the heavily polluted city in search of fresh air and dark skies. Our destination, the red sandstone landscapes of Nevada’s oldest State Park, Valley of Fire. Brad’s goal was to capture a conjunction of the Crescent Moon and Venus against the backdrop of pre-historic rock formations. Look closely at one of our first images. Barely visible to the right of the moon is a shaft of light penetrating the night sky from the Luxor Casino in Las Vegas. Dark skies are increasingly difficult to find, which is why our mission to educate the public about the damaging effects of light pollution is so important to us. Mother Nature decided to test our limits of an RV lifestyle by blasting us with an Arctic storm, and plummeting the temperatures to well below freezing at night. We learned that living mobile is a test of extremes and it is much more difficult to achieve homeostasis because when it’s cold…it’s really cold. And when it’s hot…well, you get it. Living out our dreams of achieving a balance of meaningful living and adventure has just begun, and we thank you for sharing it all with us! – MarciYou can see more images from Valley of Fire HERE.
Hi, my name is Kharma and nobody asked for my opinion about leaving my favorite sunny spots on the carpet to go live in a moving box on wheels. I knew something was up when many of my lounging spots and scratching posts started disappearing. One morning as I began my ritual of basking in my favorite spot of warm sunshine and looking really cute, it dawned on me…a change was a comin. And kitties HATE change. Adventure, quest for dark skies, teaching workshops, blah, blah, blah. This section is reserved for what it’s like to live in an RV from the perspective of a spoiled rotten kitty.
