Rainy Days and Mondays

Uncategorized

It was a busy weekend with crowds of ATVers and lots of dust. I did take a crosscountry walk with Geordie. We came across cow and deer beds and ended up in a large wash, which we followed back to the road and back to camp. Geordie doesn’t like roads even gravel roads. He tends […]

I’m Back

Uncategorized

It was nice to have a few weeks off. Did you miss me? To be honest, I’ve had some thoughts of giving up the blog. It takes money to keep it up, and I haven’t made a cent on any of the adverts I have to offset costs. I’ll mull it over more and make […]

Travelers

Uncategorized

I saw recently, on Facebook, a post from Carol Drinkwater. You might remember she was the first ‘Helen’ in “All Creatures Great and Small.” She had just watched “Out of Africa” and mentioned how young Michael Kitchen was back then. Michael Kitchen is a great actor and I like a lot of his work. His […]

Gatherings and Rendezvous

Uncategorized

It’s that season again, where masses of people gather near Quartzsite, Arizona for the big RV Show and the various other tents, such as rock show tents, gadgets and kitchen wares and more. Along with all these things, are seminars for everything you can imagine, solar, newbies to RVing info, cooking, finding camping spots, jobs, […]

Relax, don’t worry, take your time.


Uncategorized

I have to admit, this past week was a mental health week. Not day, week. As I look back at the boxes I’ve stored, donated, dumped, and given away, I still have things to go through. What came to me is this; like the way my new life will be, the pace at which things […]

Rant, Family, and Travel


Uncategorized

First, a rant, I hate trades people right now. Why? I’ve contacted two roofers, in the last two weeks, to fix some small areas of the roof, and both said “I’ll be out tomorrow.” Both were no shows and no phone calls. One blew me off twice. The painter I left a message with never […]

Head-made, Heart-made, Hand-made


Uncategorized

I’ve been thinking about hand-made arts this week. I’m forgetting who wrote it, but someone wrote about manufactured products and that people rarely work on the whole product, they work on a part. My most loved items have a hand-made history. I bought a sweater, or should I say jumper, in Scotland over 30 years ago. I […]

Art Fairs and Dutch Ovens


Uncategorized

It’s been a wild week. Last weekend was filled with rain and some of the Iron Horse Bicycle Race was altered. Later in the week we shot up to the 80’s. Just before the rains I went looking for branches for carving, on the way back from town. I was even caught looking at a […]

’93 Nova Scotia Continued


Uncategorized

The past week I received some good news. I found a place that had some storage units available. Living in a college town, it becomes hard to find storage as summer starts and the students lock up their goods and fill the local storage facilities. Guess what? I found the photos from my trip. Sorry for the quality, a […]

An Old Story About Train Travel and Roughing it


Uncategorized

I’m sure everybody heard about the snow this week. Denver was even on the news with airport delays and cancellations. This week I’ve been following a woman as she finalizes her plans to take off to Nova Scotia with a RV trailer in tow. I’ll be anxiously watching, via her blog, and taking notes for my return trip, sometime in the future. It prompted my […]

More donations and dreams


Uncategorized

We were back to spring this week for a few days. 70’s and breezy and then it changes, once again. I’ve been reading a lot of other RVer blogs lately. Everyone is heading north as the weather warms. I know I write a blog, but I get inspired reading about their travels. It motivates me to get things […]

Spring at 7100 Feet


Uncategorized

A week and a half ago I had spring fever, but in Colorado that can change in a day. Saturday it began snowing and by Sunday morning we had a half inch of snow. In this state I’ve heard a phrase that I think is factual. “Every day of the year it snows somewhere in […]

I Want to Leave Right Now!!


Uncategorized

It’s so nice this spring that I almost want to take off. But alas, I’m still far from launching into fulltime RVing. Oh, I wish I could chuck it all right now and be on the road. I have to remind myself slow and steady wins the race. I’ve taken Geordie over to the reservoir […]

Inside Introversion


Uncategorized

In a complete change of topic, I’d like to tell you about my introversion, and the fear I have putting myself out into the world. Here I am telling you about it in a blog, of all things! Introverts are very, very reluctant to speak up in a crowd. We’re even more reluctant talking about ourselves, except to a […]
