Shakedown Weekend

The other day I was thinking about how much we go away on weekends. My thoughts were somewhere around the fact we are going to run out of steam if we keep this up. Today, thinking about it again, I realized that’s total BS. Yes it’s a lot of work packing to go camping for the first […]
