runaway camperRunaway Camper.


This is what my camper will look like when its built.  I will have decals added to it.   I will be going with the Patriot theme.

Only weighs 600 lbs. Should be good on gas with my car.   Heading to New England hopefully in June if I can pack up in time.


runaway camperI have been dreaming of solo full time rving for the past 4 years. I was beginning to think it would never happen. I found this small trailer that can be pulled with my car. Its call the Runaway. The factory is in Ocala, Fl which is a couple of hrs north of me. I ordered it last week. I am so excited. This picture is basic. I get to order the colors, designs and options myself. The inside come with a shelf, air conditioner, One electric plug, carpeting on floors, walls and ceiling, one door and two windows with screens. I maybe getting it on May 16th if it gets finished in time. Will post pictures as I go. My reasoning for buying a Runaway was the price and the savings in gas as I travel. It also means I can keep my car. I told my sons but I haven’t told anyone else yet. I wanted to surprise them! Most will think I have lost my marbles living in something so small. I will post pictures when I get it decorated inside. I plan on a screen house to use with it.

Can’t wait to make these.

How yummy do these look?!  These peach pops are layered with fresh peaches and greek yogurt.  Grab the recipe below!  Found on Sugar and Cloth.




  • 2 cups chopped fresh peaches
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp sugar + ⅛ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk

Combine water and ½ sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. When it comes to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, until all the sugar is melted. Set aside and let cool– this will be your simple syrup.

Next, combine the fresh peaches and about 2 tb water in a saucepan over medium heat. Crush the peaches gently with a potato masher or wooden spoon as the pan is heating up. You want to make sure you don’t burn the peaches, but heat them enough to let them juice. When the peaches…

dunmore head re-do

I had been searching for the original RAW file of this scene for a while. This is a blend of two exposures… one for the land in the foreground, and one for the much brighter and sun-reflected light on the ocean. I wasn’t thrilled with my first go at blending the two exposures, but for the life of me I couldn’t seem to find the original files to give it another try… until recently. Maybe this is one that would look good printed on metal?

This is from the last trip I made home to Ireland (with Sam), and shows The Great Blasket Islands from Dunmore Head in County Kerry. Here’s the original post… taking the Slea Head Road west out of Dingle, we spotted a little harbor tucked into the rocks with a pretty beach. From a distance it was beautiful, and up close… even nicer. Looking over our…

Great Hat!


Yeah, I got dad points. 

Also, I had a nice day at GenCon. As I did last year, I came in for the day specifically, this year in order to take part in Pat Rothfuss’ charity run through True Dungeon. I regret to say I died thank you very much Pat Rothfuss, but the Pat followed me almost immediately into death and thus became my honor guard into Hell. So I got that going for me. Aside from that my day was spent seeing friends and hanging out, which was also fun. But mostly, it was about getting a hat for my kid. As it should have been.
