"We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us"



Our Story

Hi, we're the Kocher's. Tim retired from the transportation industry in January of 2016 after 35 years of service and now pursues his passion as a professional photographer. And Pam, a retired nurse manager of over 25 years. We decided to sell everything and pursue our dream of traveling. Our traveling consists of living on a boat on the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands during the summer and scouring the nation in our Jeep Wrangler during the winter. Yup you're right, IT DOESN'T SUCK!

What's Up With The Name "Another Crappy Day"

This is sarcasm at it's greatest. It's like calling a fat guy "slim" or Eric Clapton "slowhand." It just means the exact opposite. I have been known to say "it's just another crappy day on the island" as we enjoy the beauty and serenity of the many island parks on the St. Lawrence River in northern New York State. It's anything but crappy! 

Another Crappy Day?


Where are we now?

Pahrump, Nevada

Pahrump is located on the Nevada/California border. It offers beautiful mountain views, hot air balloon festivals, wild horses, old mining ghost towns, casinos, ATV/UTV trails and much more. Short day trips to Las Vegas, Death Valley, Beatty and Goldfield just to name a few. There is so much to see in the old west!


Our Coach  (SOLD!)


Phase 2

Operation Nomad Phase 2

Almost to the very day, 7 years ago we bought our first motor home in Tampa Bay to begin project Nomad Phase 1. So today is bittersweet as we say goodbye to our motor coach. But this has been our plan since day 1.

We were to travel all over the country from October to May seeing attractions and natural wonders that we had only dreamed about and boy did we! Making stops along the way to see family and friends, with longer stays in Nevada to visit our 2 kids and their families, yes lots of granddaughters! During the summer we would go back to the 1000 Islands in New York to live on our boat, where we would be close to our other daughter and granddaughter.

After traveling coast to coast 17 times in 7 years, the time has come to get something bigger, homier and a little more permanent in Nevada for the winter. We will be enjoying the roominess of our new park model trailer here in Pahrump, NV.

This doesn’t mean in any way that we are done traveling. There is still a lot to see out there and we intend to get to it! There have been several places along our routes that we would have liked to have seen or explore that we just couldn’t with a 40’ motor coach hauling a Jeep, keep in mind you can’t back up when attached. That now won’t be a problem!

So what’s the plan for spring 2024?

When we leave Nevada May 1st we will head to Santa Monica, CA and work our way back home on Old Route 66 completing the full Route 66 trip from Chicago, IL. to Santa Monica, CA. We traveled Old Route 66 last year from Kingman, AZ to Chicago, so we just have to do the California stretch.

Once home for the summer we will be traveling on our boat, staying at the many Canadian and New York State Island parks and do day trips to other attractions near by. We will then travel back west finding more places to visit along the way. Then on to our winter home in Pahrump.

Life is short make the best of it while you can. And remember, “Not All Who Wander Are Lost”!
