Here goes nothing...

So this is my first post on this crazy new journey of traveling and blogging.  Greg has about 1 year left of his apprenticeship and we were sick and tired of doing long distance, so I'm taking the year off and traveling with him.  For the next year, I am going to be living in a 5th wheel camper, cooking some amazing food for my man, getting in tip-top shape and planning a wedding.  I wanted to start this blog for a little "project" to keep me busy, but also for friends and family to see what we are up to. Plus, I plan to post recipes, as well as fitness and nutrition stuff.
Here's what our travels look like so far:
Ellensburg  --> Boise --> Salt Lake City --> Rexburg, ID
We set up shop in Rexburg, ID, which is a small town about 15-20,000 and about 95% Mormon.  As you can imagine, we fit in perfectly (cough, wink...)  But that's besides the point, we are staying in a lovely RV park that's right on a little lake.  I get to walk to dog around the lake and enjoy the view.  Rexburg is also very close to the Teton mountain range which is stellar to look at and I hope to find a hiking buddy to go exploring with.
Here's what I've been doing to stay busy:
 Of course we had to stop in Drummond, ID (population 15, people not thousand!).  We had a beer at the biker bar on Sunday, since this was this only thing open!
Nice patio with a view of the Grand Tetons and the power substation that Greg will be working at.
I also decided that I'm going to master the art of homemade bread while I have this time, so below is my first loaf of bread made in the trailer.  The Idaho sunshine made for a perfect rising/proofing oven

It didn't brown the way I wanted it to, but it tasted delicious.  Here is the link for the Honey Oat Bread recipe I used. 
Stay tuned for more travel, cuisine and other random stuff.  Cheers! D
