Welcome to Wild Thing Escapes, a blog where I chronicle my adventures in a 5th wheel travel trailer. My name is Sarah and I live near Boston, Ma. I am happily married, have two grown sons and a miniature dachshund named Dexter! I’m an introspective soul who enjoys both solitude and time spent in community.

Why did I name the blog “Wild Thing Escapes”?    Wild Thing is the name of my travel trailer (a reference to Maurice Sandak’s Where the Wild Things Are and that jammin’ song “Wild Thing” by The Troggs, and well, I’m going into the wild!  AlsoI believe there is a bit of a wild spirit in us all!) The Escape reference comes from the name of the company who is building my trailer,  Escape Trailer Industries .

My interest are varied. I’m a lifelong learner who enjoys artistic endeavors (painting, sculpting, mixed media, cloth and clay figures), handcrafts (knitting, quilting, embroidery,  beading, weaving), photography, food, and writing.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to strike out in my “tiny home on wheels” to explore outer landscapes and reflect on inner landscapes.

I hope to make this a place of inspiration, education, entertainment, and humor.

I hope you will  join me on this adventure and become part of my online community of friends!
