Paul and I visited the Hostel in the Forest located just about 1 hour outside of Savannah in Brunswick, Georgia. I had been there just about 10 years ago on another road trip and was excited to go back. It was comforting to see that not much had changed – a few new buildings, improvements to the showers, and composting toilets – but otherwise, the open and inviting community was still going strong.
These days the Hostel is a nonprofit organization run primarily by volunteers with a diverse range of workshops from time-to-time. If you’re ever in the area and you’d like to see what it’s like to sleep in a treehouse, walk a meditative labyrinth, cook and eat meals communally, swim in the warm waters of a lake, or shower outside then check it out!

We had a splendid time in Atlanta, Georgia visiting with friends. First stop was staying with the Rich Family: **Sarah**, **Dan**, **Emma**, and newborn baby **Will**.
In addition to showing the whole fam Charlie the Camper Van, we had fun playing (tea party was our favorite), cooking (we made fish and Chana Masala), and just hanging out. Enjoy some pics from our stay.
Thanks again for having us Riches!

Paul and I were charmed by historic Savannah and its moss covered trees and architectural details. We visited the childhood home of the founder of the Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low, saw taffy being made on River St., ate fantastic food, sat on the beach on Tybee Island, and visited Savannah College of Art & Design. Enjoy the slide show of our time in Savannah above.
