Yes, you inspire me :)

Yes, you inspire me :)

While we were hanging at Cape Disappointment this past week my little blog passed a rather massive milestone. What started as just a small thing, a little side-project, somewhere to post a few pics and share a few words with friends and family just rocked past 1,000,000 views. I never, in my wildest imagination thought I would reach that million number. I can’t quite believe it and I just had to share it because YOU, my friends, are the people that made this happen. Maybe it’s “the beast“, or perhaps my witty repatee, or possibly the dog (I’m putting my money on the dog…she is outrageously cute after all), but whatever your reasons for following our journey I THANK you for doing so. The community that I’ve discovered through blogging, the blog readers we’ve met and the inspiration it gives me to continue to photograph and write is something quite special. I may be the source, but you guys are the lifeline of this blog. So, thanks very much folks…here’s looking forward to the next mil :)

    Greetings from N TX and congrats on your blog’s success. I stumbled upon it a while back when I was looking for pictures of So Llano River State Park, my favorite TX SP! While I am only a tentcamper, I love reading about your adventures with the Beast and your photography is marvelous. I look forward to many more posts!

    1,000,000 view only because you are such a great writer and always keep it interesting. We all most met up with you near Lake Shasta last summer. This yr we are back at our spot up in the mts. of Arizona near Payson for the summer. 7700 ft / It is a great place to cool down from the Phoenix area in the summer. we have been spending the last 12yrs here. Hope to meet up with you next summer.

    Nina & Paul and, of course, your furry family,
    It has been delightful to follow you since we met at Single Tree CG in Utah back in June of 2011. May your days ahead be full of good health and great times. We do enjoy the notes and pics! Thanks for taking us along for the ride.
    Stay safe and be well.

    Congratulations on the Mile Stone you have reached, we soooooo regret not being able to hook up with you and Paul last year in Oregon. Although we passed each other at some time or another. We are not going to make it up there this year do to our once in a life time trip to Europe for 6 weeks this summer. Perhaps next year if your going to do Oregon again, we are going to try and trip to Alaska next year.
    Have you ever thought about making a few $$ on your Blog? Don’t know how you would do it but with 1,000,000 hits and another 1,000,000 in the future……. Oh Well just thinking out loud here.. My money is on Polly also LoL….

    Congratulations! That’s quite the milestone. Your pictures are always beautiful and inspiring. You and Paul do a great on of checking out interesting areas and the descriptions and pictures make you want to go visit right now! Pictures of the kitty basking in the sun in the chair always make me think how nice a nap would be in the sun after a nice walk!

    Keep up the good work!

  23. sbjones7 says:

    Congrats Nina! It’s a great blog and I can see why so many others enjoy it. Sharon and I are so glad we got to meet you and Paul. We really enjoyed the visit. I hope out paths cross again. We are enjoying our first workamping job at Nason Creek Campground near Leavenworth, WA. If you get near us, please stop by. It’s in the Wenatchee National Forest in a great wooded setting with the creek flowing through the campground. Anyway, hope everything is going great for you guys!

  24. Patty says:

    Thank you for your blog. So many reasons I love it….photos, information about your routes and campsite reviews. I’m using your blog to help me plan my trip up 395 to OR and WA in a couple months.

  25. Rosanne Stachecki says:

    I LOVE your blog…it definitely is your writing..your sense of humor, and yes, the dog also!

  26. Sherry says:

    That is an amazing number but no one but you seems surprised. You write a wonderful blog with a perfect mix of information and humor topped off with simply fabulous pictures. You inspire me in my own writing. I doubt such a number is in my future but the comments keep me going. Thanks for such great reads and those terrific campground reviews.

  27. Congratulations! 1,000,000 views is a amazing. You two do an excellent job of writing and the photos are fantastic. We have been fans for a very long time. Keep up the great work.

  28. Well deserved…er, make that earned!

  29. Marcia GB says:

    It’s all of the above. Congrats on your 1 million milestone!

  30. Diane Borcyckowski says:

    No wonder! Super blog! It’s all because of the RVing cats for me. Well, your photos and writing are great too! Ok, Polly is pretty cute. And there’s the fact that I’m living vicariously through you – until I can get my own RV and meet up with you somewhere “out there”. Keep up the great work – the 2nd million will come much faster!

  31. Here’s another view to add to your million!

  32. Jodee says:

    Congrats on the milestone. I too read regularly and look forward to the next one. The campsite reviews are especially helpful using the rating system for comparisons. As we plan our own adventure I keep track of those reviews and if the beast fit comfortably, Polly liked it and the location is spectacular then it’s on our list! We’re even getting healthier so we can hike and see what’s out there on the trails that your photos tease us with weekly! Thanks for the time and effort you put into the blog – how fun it will be for you and Paul to read back through all your adventures when you decide to hang up the steering wheel!

  33. The Good Luck Duck says:

    Wowwie! Congratulations!

    Sure, Polly’s alright, but you guys are pretty darn cute yourselves!

  34. Jeff & deb spencer says:

    Congratulations from our Arkansas home base. Just back from a 3 week trip in Colorado where we had a fortuitous meetup with RV Dreamers in Colorado Springs before moving on to many hikes in Estes Park. We enjoy your thoughtful information and on this trip referenced your site for the Wilson Sleek, RV memberships, Roadside assistance and GEO method for black tanks. Too bad you didn’t have a post about running out of gas in a 30mph headwind across Kansas…we could have used it as well! Best wishes. Jeff, Deb and Irondog Sam.

  35. Allen says:

    Nina, there is no other blogger I look forward to reading as much as you. Wheelin It has taken me places and shown me things that I want to see for myself. Preparations are underway, perhaps we,ll share a sunset cocktail someday. Congratulations on your success.

  36. Rowanova says:

    Nice job, and congrats! Keep up the fun “work” and the second mil will happen much sooner. I’m sure of that.

  37. Joe says:

    Congrats on the 1M views…. Wow! I’m hooked also enjoy it and hope you keep it up. Thanks for answering my question a couple weeks ago.

  38. Caroline says:

    I got out the calculator and see that is A LOT of views every day. I of course am one of the every day people…. I have to see what you and Paul and Polly and the Cats are up to.

  39. Congrats! That’s an amazing stat!! Although I must say, not at all surprising. We stayed for two “gnat-free” nights at Antelope Island this past week after reading your review. We absolutely loved it! Your blog has become our go-to source for what’s hot in the land of full-time RVing! Thanks for all the great info… and please-oh-please keep it up! :-)

  40. LuAnn says:

    It definitely is all the above Nina. We look forward to each and every post. Here’s to your next million! :)

  41. Well, I’m not surprised at all – you have a great writing style, good information, great photos, nice looking blog (and husband and dog), what’s not to love? Congratulations on a huge milestone! :)

  42. Michael says:

    Congratulations, please don not stop. Your blog is interesting and informative. Thank you!
