Have you ever decided to do something that just may be a little crazy? We are about to embark on a cross-country trip! You may ask why. Well there are several reasons. First of all, my husband works remotely from his home office. With his laptop he can work anywhere so we decided to spend three months in the Pacific Northwest near all four of our children. We also have been taking care of our daughter’s dog, Riley, the Boston Terrier. Our daughter and her family relocated to Portland, OR a year ago and unfortunately they could not find a rental that allowed dogs. So Riley came to Camp Vermont and has had a perfectly wonderful year. She has lived with us before and is a wonderful dog.



Our daughter and her husband are now building a house and it should be just about finished by the end of the year and they would like their dog back! Unfortunately Boston Terriers do not travel well in the cargo hold of an airplane. So we will not only be driving cross-country but we will be driving with a dog! Luckily we have friends along the way that will allow us to spend the night with Riley.

After visiting several friends along the way our first stay will take place in Keystone, South Dakota where we will spend the month of October. For many, many years we have been a part of The Keystone Project ministry. For the first time ever we will be at the main headquarters during one of their international trainings. We will be helping out and participating as much as possible. Riley is also welcomed!New-KP-Logo-White-on-Blue-Tall1At the end of October we will once again get back in the car and continue our drive with the final destination being Portland, OR.

We will be just ten minutes from our oldest daughter and her family. I can’t wait to be close to our two grandchildren! It will be a different experience to live in a townhouse in the city of Portland! Quite the opposite of our quiet Vermont life! However this will give us time to really experience the Pacific Northwest during the fall and be able to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with all four of our children, our two son-in-laws and our two grandchildren!

Eventually we might relocate to the Pacific Northwest, but being a New England girl I thought it would be a good idea to spend a little time there before we just up and moved. After all we have lived for many years in Vermont and really love our life here.Looking forward to a relaxing weekend!I am very thankful for house sitters and our friends that make it possible to have this adventure. Our home is taken care of, the houseplants will be watered and someone will be shoveling the snow! I will continue to blog while we are away, so stay tuned for further adventures of “Nancy Not On The Home Front” as we make this cross-country drive! Quite possible the biggest adventure will be driving back to Vermont in early January!prudent livingFollow along on Facebook and Instagram as well as I will be posting photos there!

I’m glad you’re adventurous like myself. I’ve lived over seas in Edzell Scotland and Rota Spain. My husband’s work takes us to different states and towns. His campaign will be over in December and we still don’t know where we’re headed next.

I would love to live in Scotland for a while! I’m looking forward to our adventure! Now to pack the car! 🙂

Enjoy your trip. We moved to the Pacific Northwest (actually Coastal BC with a part-time place in Bellingham). We love it here. – Margy

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest – north of Seattle in a small town. So over crowded up that way but it can be beautiful this time of year. Sounds like you’re having a fun adventure. Enjoy!

It’s going to be an adventure that’s for sure! I do know I can’t live right in the city. If we ever relocate hoping to find a spot in the country!
