Bertha has been having one of her fits...
Two breakdowns in 3 days.
One that stranded us in Casper, Wyoming for 16 hours and one that left us right here off Main Street in Spearfish, South Dakota.
Honestly? It can be scary to be so in love with a life of such impermanence. It can be nerve-wracking to rely so heavily on something that owes you nothing. If Bertha has taught me anything, it's radical acceptance...it's taking a deep breath and smiling and sighing, "this is where we are."
So when @nickhubbard_ walked over and asked if he could take some photos of us right there, as is, broken down in the middle of his town...we said hell yea.
Because that's where we were.

To the town of Spearfish, South Dakota...your kindness overwhelmed us. Thank you for bringing us coffee and cardboard for Keith to lay on under that damn tire. Thank you for drinking beers with us at @crowpeakbrewing . Thank you for driving us to AutoZone. Thank you for taking really beautiful and accurate photos of our life. Thank you for taking us up mountain bike trails and feeding us homemade Nutella pop tarts and treating us like friends you'd known for a very long time. This might be the strangest #ad for @southdakota ever but...break down here. I'd highly recommend it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here's a preview of what our Christmas cards would look like if we lived in a teeny cabin in @southdakota and if I ever became an organized enough person to send out Christmas cards ๐Ÿ˜‚.
One cozy Sunday morning here at the Blue Bell Lodge๐ŸŒฒ #SeasonsOfSoDak #ad #HiFromSD

No amount of rain could dampen our spirits today. Bertha is alive and well because there's good, good people tucked in wonderful little unexpected corners of this world.
Such an awesome first day exploring @southdakota. From the Badlands to the Black Hills, it's a pretty incredible place to hang. Stoked to be heading up to Spearfish in the morning!

This old bus rolled in to Badlands National Park at the crack of dawn under a heavy sky.
We wound our way through otherworldly clay formations and rushing washes of milky mud, through pink and yellow painted hills and grassy flat tops overlooking a sea of cracks and crevices and pillars splintering up out of the earth.
And though the weather was less than ideal, there was something pretty special about having the place to ourselves. #SeasonsOfSoDak #ad #HiFromSD @southdakota

In anticipation of National Camping with Dogs Day this weekend, here's my favorite video ever.
This right here, folks...those two faces...that's all it's ever been about for us. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

Took our friends through one of our favorite slots yesterday and sort of made peace with the fact that it was likely our last one of the season. I guess wearing puffy coats and hats on top while simultaneously wading through waist-deep water in your underwear is a pretty good indicator that it's wetsuit season ๐Ÿ˜‚. Thanks for being such champs, @brodyleven and @acpictures!!

We get by with a little help from our friends ๐Ÿ˜‰

I've said it before and I'll say it again...
Keith and I consider "home" to be the deserts of Utah, where you can't walk more than 100 yards without stumbling upon another pictograph or petroglyph dancing across towering sandstone walls.
Archeological reconstructions have traced human habitation in these lands up to 12,000 years ago.
The power of this place is immense.
And Christopher Columbus didn't "discover" jack shit.
Happy Indigenous Peoples Day

You'd think I'd have a thicker skin by now, but I'm perpetually taken aback by the cruelty of the world wide web.
So my mom and I took a long walk in the woods today while Keith peddled on ahead on his mountain bike with the dogs.
When we got to a clearing up at the top, we were looking out over Parley's Canyon and the sun was splintering through holes in the clouds, hitting those fall mountain yellows and reds...and my mom said quietly, "I love it out here. I feel so inconsequential...like there's so much that's bigger than me."
Nothing like words from mama to bring you right back, huh? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Asked Bucket if I could have a turn hugging Keith. She said no... #mine

Come Fall, it's finally safe enough to let these dogs cruise dozen mile trails alongside us. And that makes for some real happy pups. #LetsGoZukes

(Unfortunately Morgan Freeman was unavailable to narrate this, so I had to come to terms with listening to the sound of my own voice ๐Ÿ˜ณโŒ)

"Vanlife" is played up in the media as this story about a bunch of people who felt like they needed less.
Honestly? I think it's about a bunch of people who needed more...
