We found paradise at American Heritage Campground, WA.

We were originally going to be at American Heritage Campground for two nights but after driving up and feeling right at home, we extended our stay. Carla, Jim and Rita welcomed us with open arms. They moved things around on their reservation calendar and managed to find us a site where we can stay for as long as we want. 

As you look at the pictures, you will see why we didn’t want to leave…

We ride our bikes daily and this is just one of the trails we go on.

Our travel trailer is happy too because it’s spacious and wide here. We may have neighbors but they are far from us. It’s paradise here in the woods!

This goat smells like Owen after a day of riding his bike.

Part of the reason we are staying longer…. Owen can be a kid and ride all over. He makes friends and just look at how happy he is!

For now, we’re here until September 9. There’s going to be a flea market and I’m considering joining in as a vendor. I have tons of paper quilling just stored away. More on that later…

Our address starting August 8. Last day to send mail: September 1, 2014

Useful Info: We will definitely be up here during winter- October 2014 through March 2015. Unsure if Oregon or Washington. Either way, it’s close to Portland Airport and Seattle-Tacoma airport. Hope we get some visitors!

We are Pam, Richard and Owen. It was three years ago when we embarked on this journey. We sold our house, cars and belongings. We said good bye to our jobs, friends and family. We purchased a travel trailer and had an adventure of a lifetime. We took homeschoolng to another level. Education on the go, our family was in tow and we explored the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and a little bit of Europe. We hope to inspire others looking for a dramatic change. Remember, not all who wander are lost. As of 2017, our trailer is tucked away and we are settled in Northern California.
