Hi, remember me?? I am still here. For those of you who are new here, WELCOME! For those of you who are old friends, thanks for sticking by me during a summer hiatus. As you may or may not know, I had a baby back in March and he has been keeping me VERY busy. I have definitely slacked on the blog front but I think I have a great excuse!
I have a newsletter that is going out tomorrow and I am trying to get back on track with sending it out monthly. I would love for you to sign up today!

Welcome Back. I was diagnosed 4 years ago with celiac disease. Finding your blog a couple of years ago gave me the courage to travel again. I still have not worked up to my pre-celiac diagnosis travel schedule where I would spend 3 to 6 weeks at a time crossing the US by car and combining work and fun times. I am now ready with more free time to spend extended time on fun trips either in the US or Europe. You inspire me because you did all this travel way before NIMA was invented. NIMA is a wonderful invention but it is not financially practical for very long trips. With three meals a day and 3 or 4 items per meal one could easily spend $50.00 a day just on testing food. I also have IBS and am never sure what I am dealing with. I am glad you are back and will continue to read your blog.
Hi Lynn, thanks for your kind message. I have driven cross-country twice in the past three years without a nima so it is totally possible! As you probably know, traveling with celiac takes some extra research to find places to eat but it is totally doable. I do hope you return to extended travel again soon. Thanks!
