Let's wrap this up, shall we.

We are no longer full-time travelers.


The lack of blog posts reflects that. Pictures too.

Sure, there are other things going on and I've tried to touch on those from time to time here. I'm still working on the house. We still have chickens and goats. We still try to do some epic hiking and we have some big plans for the year. Don't worry, we'll get to those.

The kitchen needed some work

It got some work.

I'm trying my hand at cabinets. They are cheap, but functional. Just like me.

We even installed a dishwasher which we worship every night.

But the Adventure Nickel adventure has pretty much concluded. I think we can call if officially closed with this.

Presenting: Our Memories

That is what we left behind. These boxes were filled with the things we just couldn't bear to part with. Oh yeah, and one box randomly filled with empty plastic Easter eggs and dollar store decorations.  I submit we may not have been in our right minds when we stashed all this stuff up there.

We recently went back to Houston to visit family and took the opportunity to go back to our stash and get it out of the recesses of the attic. Now that we had a permanent home, it seemed like we should.

And, in true Adventure Nickel fashion, there had to be an incident.

I may have partially fallen through the ceiling. Maybe.

Now that our traveling adventure life has concluded, what do I do with all this? 

It seems pretty cozy here, in my little corner of the internet. Maybe I should keep posting things here.

So, what am I doing that is exciting enough to share about? 


Yeah, another book. This one's different though. I'm not saying there won't be an Adventure Nickel Pt 2. There might, but I had to try an actual novel. I'm probably greater than halfway through the rough draft and I'm finally starting to believe I might finish this thing. So, I'm going to start treating this place like the blog of the author I would love to be.

So that's what this will be for the foreseeable future. The blog of a hopefully emerging author. I'm going to be talking about different projects and writing and all the other things that go along with it.

If you are interested, follow along. I'll still post pretty pictures from hikes.

Time to get back to work.
