Welcome to Wandering Under the Stars !


We have been traveling and camping since we met and we will continue until the Universe decides it’s time to stop.  We like all those out of the way spots-where you won’t find the huge campfire party going or twenty wee ones racing around the campground. So our wanderings usually take us to those boondocking spots we all long for.  I hope you enjoy our journey and follow along with us.


This was Hailey, she was our sweet traveling companion.  Unfortunately we lost her to bone cancer while in Jackson Hole, WY in September of 2018.  We knew we couldn’t go home to an empty house so we went in search for a new furry family member.  We found Kitikat at the Sante Fe Humane Society and knew that she would probably never get adopted because she was withdrawn, had a serious case of heartworm and had snapped at other dogs.  Somehow I felt that Hailey found her for us. So off we went to Sante Fe !  It’s been a little over a year and Kitkat is a changed dog.  She’s affectionate, loves to travel,wags her tail at people she meets and she’s gotten much better with other dogs. We love her dearly.

I found this description of Fernweh,( an ache for distant places,the craving for travel),  over a year ago and it really describes what we both feel:


 Who am I that I ache for places I have never seen? Who yearns for destinations I have never known. That wanderlust plagues me and carries part of my spirit in its outstretched hand. She who dreams of places yet unseen, of moments not yet occurring, of feelings long since felt. She who feels homesickness for distant adventures.  A far-sickness that gnaws on the core of who she is.  She has a need to find the place, the time, the where that she is meant to be. Fernweh is stamped upon her soul. -M.M.
