Power Snatch Workout at Rising Tide Fitness

We continue our year of getting fit with another Crossfit workout. This time it is Power plus Amanda. We are going on 4 months of regular workouts and we are both feeling much stronger.

Aurora loves it! And it is good father/daughter time!

First we worked on Power Snatch technique. Then went into the workout.

Power Plus Amanda

Each Round consists of the following

Power Snatches

Burpees

Jumping Pull-ups

1st Round 11 Reps

2nd Round 9 Reps

3rd Round 7 Reps

4th Round 5 Reps

The second two moves are scaled because neither of us have our bar over pull-ups, yet.

Thanks to https://bensound.com for the music.

Ep 22 The 12 Days of Christmas Crossfit

As we travel sometimes we don't have a mountain to climb or a beach to walk and staying in shape during the holidays is important. This year we tried something new, CrossFit. As we travel we come across gyms all across the country offering the CrossFit style workout and it looked interesting. So we gave it two solid month and it has been a blast!!

On special occasions, CrossFit Gyms have special workouts and Christmas Eve is one of those days. The 12 Days of Christmas, Crossfit Style. No matter what skill level all you need to compete is effort. The coaches will scale the workout to challenge you and keep you moving. Aurora and I had a blast. It was a great gift to give ourselves on Christmas Eve, the gift of health.

Merry Christmas

Throw Back to June 2019

We had visited many Indian ruins in the west but none as complete or interesting as these. The Alcove Trail at Bandelier National Monument provides many opportunities to explore the petroglyphs, niches, and ruins. Climbing ladders, rock stairs and trails built thousands of years ago submerged us into the history of the people who used to live here. It was an amazing experience. #rvamericandream #explore #findyourpark #NPS #juniorrangersNPS

Another great week in the Black Hills of South Dakota!! RvAmericanDream is spending another week at Heartland Ranch Campground and the music is great. The Friday Nighters play every Friday during the summer season and it is always a good time. It is great to be around other people that love America and are proud to sing about it. Greg Johnson sings Proud to be an American with the Friday Nighters in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

The difference in weather we experience across the country is incredible. Traveling across 45 states in 4 years we have seen it all. The storms in North Dakota present with an amazing light show. Medora, North Dakota near the Theodore Roosevelt National Forest is an amazing place to spend some time in the summer. Last night I was able to catch an incoming storm and the lightning was incredible.

Buffalo Close Encounter Custer State Park

Surprises abound at Custer State Park in South Dakota!! We have been looking for the buffalo for two weeks and finally they showed up and took over. The rules are clear, do not approach the buffalo, but if the buffalo are all over the road and the ranger is asking you to drive through them then getting close is expected. We took some great video. And my daughter learned a little about holding the phone in landscape mode when recording. Enjoy!! We have more great videos on the way!!

Independence Day 2021

We celebrate our independence by living our dream, our RV American Dream. Showing our children this amazing country and meeting people from all over the world is inspiring them to chase their own dreams.

We have been staying at Heartland RV Park Every Friday and Saturday they have live music. This song was sung by Greg Johnson and the Friday Nighters on July 2, 2021 at Heartland RV Park. We highly recommend a night or two here. They do a great job and the location is fantastic!!

Get out and celebrate your independence, this last years has been a clear example of how fragile it is.

Happy Independence Day!!

Aurora Around America Ep. 17

We spent some time in the Fort Myers / Punta Gorda area of Florida over the winter. Aurora wanted to try something new and we found a great beginners quilting class at the White Daisy Quilting Shop. It was a brand new business to the area and Cheryl was excited to take Aurora on as a student. I have posted a link to the Quilt shop and class Aurora took.
