Cruising Slow

Gulf coast beaches are pretty nice aren’t they? . . . #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv #nofilter #gulfcoast

Crisp morning with some warm sunshine make for great deserted beach walks to plan your day and upcoming travels. What’s your #morningroutine ? . . . #beach #feet #meditation #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv #topsailhillpreservestatepark

Always be ready to discover some good coffee and bread! The friendly folks @blackbearbreadco serve up some amazing coffee and breads! . . . #coffeeshop #bakery #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

After some hard rain it’s nice to see the sun again. Airing out all the awnings, truck bed and trailer is key to moisture control. . . . #floridastateparks #topsailhillpreservestatepark #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

We randomly connected with Bryan, Charlene, and 🐶Schuyler at a Thanksgiving rally in Texas. We hit it of and ended up traveling together for over a month through 4 states, spending Christmas together with their kids in New Orleans, and ringing in the New Year in a quiet state park in Florida. Our paths now go separate ways for a bit and we’ll miss our newfound family a lot. We’ll make sure our paths cross again in the future. Finding and connecting with all sorts of people at different levels is one of the most rewarding parts of the full-time rv-ing for us. What makes your heart sing when you’re out there? . . . #family #goodbye #seeyousoon #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

After all that rain, clear skies demanded a fire and #happyhour . . . #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

We spent a week in the #wbcci Airstream park which is located right in Mystic Springs state park on the Escambia river. Very rural but pretty once the sun finally came out after close to a week of rain. We’re finding that alternating populated areas with more remote stays work better for us. Some because it’s cities are expensive, mostly because nature helps decompress and balance us out. What is your busy/quiet balance? . . . #florida #floridastateparks #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

Whatever 2018 was for you, we wish you the best for the New Year as we leave it behind and begin a fresh one. Too many more adventures! . . . . #best9of2018 #top9of2018 #topnine2018 #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

If you make it to #neworleans, make sure you select a nice wine and listen to some fantastic music @bacchanalwine!

One of my favorite things about traveling around is discovering 🍺 in unexpected places. @courtyardbrew What places have you randomly run into?

I’ve been watching Joe Armstrong experiment with TiddlyWiki on twitter. I’m not sure I can deal with the nature of TiddlyWiki, but the concept of communicating wikis is fascinating.

Google Fusion Tables Turndown

I’ve been using Google My Maps to keep our Places map up to date. I received a shutdown notice for Fusion Tables a week or so ago and have been looking at what I can replace it with.

Since I know how to code I’m up for trying something a bit more custom if I can’t find something simple to replace it with.

For custom code, there’s ArcGIS, Mapbox, CartoDB and Leaflet. Let’s explore a bit to see what work.

First time on a ferry with all our belongings in one compact tiny home. My parking skills show the excited nerves. . . . #ferry #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv

Not many pictures from our stay in Fulton and Rockport. Mostly because we were backyard camping at some friends we made around Thanksgiving. If you own an Airstream don’t forget a about courtesy parking as a great feature of the #wbcci . . #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv #texasfriendly

The Alamo and the missions leading up to it are fun to visit. We ran into a mariachi band recording in one of the old missions. Always great to find hidden gems. #texasmissions #rememberthealamo #cruisingslow #homeiswhereyouparkit #airstream #airstreamlife #liveriveted #fulltimerv
