Beep, beep, beep. That’s the sound of us backing up


By Saimi Bergmann

OK, we have been out of touch, so let’s back up and catch up.

After circling the country clockwise (our first year fulltiming, we went counterclockwise), we hunkered down in San Antonio in December and January, then stayed in St. George, Utah, for February and March – thus managing to skip winter altogether!

We left the RV in Utah and spent the summer in Ohio, reconnecting with family and friends, and running the third season of Foodie Field Trips with partner Jennifer Mastroianni.

After a successful, sold-out tour season, we packed up (wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve packed or unpacked in the past two years) and headed west again, with a stop in Chicago to see the grandkids. Who are, of course, amazing. And speaking of amazing, get a load of this birthday cake my daughter, Katrina, made for her dad’s 60th birthday.  img_2080


Next, we drove to Colorado Springs at the invitation of my sister Susan. Her son, Thomas, is a cadet at the Air Force Academy there. The campus chapel is AMAZING.  It includes a Protestant chapel, a Catholic chapel, a Jewish temple and a Buddhist temple. If you happen to be visiting the nearby Garden of the Gods, make time to stop and see this architectural beauty. img_2165

  1. Wonderful to see what you’ve been up to. What adorable grandkids.

    We’re back home, in our house again, trying really hard to sell the RV before winter. Kate’s got a new job with Hospice, which she is loving so far. I got another job at HP, new division. So it’s kind of life back to usual for us. But oh what a trip that was!!! The memories of it will keep us going to a good long time, I think.

    Any plans to come to the Northwest?
