Pee-Pee Solution

Is it just me or do you also find that you need to pee in the middle of the night?

This being a common occurrence for both Jon and me, we decided that we needed a pee-pee solution for our trip that protected us from braving the cold, dark world outside of the van.

This is the solution and it is awesome.

It is hard to imagine my life now without the Duro-Med Non-Autoclavable Female Urinal. No more laying in a tent (or a van) wondering how long until morning and calculating how long I can hold it. No more putting shoes on, shivering in the dark and wondering if I'm splashing my shoes with pee splatter. 

If you like to camp, backpack or even travel long distances in a car, you need to buy this immediately. You won't regret it!


  1. Ok...I need to know...and you opened up the topic. But do you do this in the van with Jon there? If so, your marriage is much stronger than mine.

  2. Our marriage may not be stronger but it may be "earthier", as my father would say. Peeing occurs in van, in presence of Jon. Please don't think any less of us... :)

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!


Yesterday, the Curious Souls decided to take the dog for a walk. We were looking for somewhere that we had not yet been before, so we chose the  Pawnee National Grassland.  There were two very short trails in the western part of the grassland near Crow Valley Recreation Area. We hiked them both in under an hour (I said very short, right?) and were left wanting more. So, eastward we went on our way to  Pawnee Buttes . Along the way, we discovered the  Cedar Creek Wind Farm  and plenty of wide open space. After the Buttes, we looked at the map and discovered that we were only about 20 miles south of Nebraska. And, to seal the deal, we noticed that just over the border was also the highest point in the state. Here we are at the aptly named Panorama Point.  While only 5,424 feet in elevation it did have some lovely, long, expansive views into the seemingly infinite plains around us. As far as either of us could remember, this is the first time we actually visited the highest
