We began CrazyUS in the summer of 2002.  Our first web incarnation (and now long gone) was davybeth.com circa 1998. CrazyUS began as a travelblog, the year we bought a VW camper van and decided to travel for a year with our babies through the US and Canada. Since then our babies have become 1 boy and 1 pre-tween, our house is complete and we have managed to leave the continental United States.  I actively blogged until August 2006 when it was imperative that I take a break and help my husband finish building our house.

With several stitches, a broken nose, a broken foot, a Copperhead Snake bite, and nearly losing Kyle in 2011 due to a rare illness (Stevens-Johnson Syndrome), we made it through and have continued our crazy adventures,  of course, taking lots and lots of walks,  and always laughing our brains out.

And then there is that one thing I cannot seem to get out of my head: Travel . . . wanderlust is in my soul.  I am thinking my trips to Europe, Hawaii and Deadwood, SD are my favorite adventures. This world is so incredibly cool.

Offline I continue writing and pontificating about this great world we live in. Recently, with my boys settled, my house complete and a suitcase full of stories waiting to tell, I had an itch to try it again and slowly I am doing it again. We started crazy us.com with our travel tales and that is where we begin again (with a little day to day thrown in, of course). Enjoy!


  1. Your boys are HUGE now!!! I swear they were just little boys a minute ago. I’m excited you’re back and I hope you will share pics of your new house with us.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that its not showing up properly on the BlackBerry Browser (I have a Pearl). Anyway, I am now on the RSS feed on my laptop, so thanks!

  3. Beth: You rock! I love that photo

    Thanks Mel.

  5. So much love for you. Had it not been for “Dooce,” we would have never met. How stupid crazy is that!?! I perish the thought. Many hugs, friend! xo

  6. Beth, I stumbled back across your blog and I’m so thrilled you’re back online. I was a loyal blog reader of yours many years back when I was more involved with blogging myself, as I have kids close in age to yours and always enjoyed your writing style. (My old blog was Crazy MomCat.) I’m slowly coming back to blogging now after some huge changes in my life, but I haven’t quite gotten back into the groove yet. Glad to have some old favorite writers/blogs I can return to now though! Welcome back!

    Steph, I totally remember you! Thank you for finding me and please forgive the delayed response. As you see, I am also very SLOWLY coming back.

  8. How did I miss that you are back? Yay!

  9. Summer, yes I am back and really want to write everyday, at least Monday – Friday! Thank you for Yaying! :)

  10. It’s good to have you back. The boys are totally big now. Seems like only yesterday that they were trying to figure out how to break into your locked bedroom…

  11. Sharlene, Thanks for your comments. The boys are huge! And they are still trying to figure out how to break into locked bedrooms ;)
