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 […]

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, […]

Moving South


Uncategorized

Last week I was up north of Chino Valley and Paulden. On Tuesday I moved over to south of Wikieup, Az and spent the night. I had thought of staying there a few nights but I decided I’d head south. If you look at the Arizona map, you might ask me why I went over […]

Doings of an RVer


Uncategorized

What a nice thing it is to stop and spread out for a time. While I thought I’d leave this spot just because of the road noise, at night it’s nearly silent. To stay put after such a long time of moving about is a luxury. I even got the hammock out and set it […]

Bummer


Uncategorized

Sometimes things happen, just like life everywhere. Well, it happened to me on Wednesday. I stayed at Sand Island Campground ($15) for a night near Bluff, Utah on Tuesday. I decided to head south to Flagstaff rather than go to Little Monument Valley. As you remember, I was there a couple of  springs ago and […]

Spooky 13


Uncategorized

I took the drive to the Needles Overlook last Friday. I have to say it is a sight. What I also found were other campsites, some near the rim overlooking the park. I thought about moving, maybe mid-stay, but then I realized that I may not have a cell/internet signal, and I liked the spot […]

Rain and Red Rocks


Uncategorized

As you remember, I took the trailer back to the 227 exit in Utah overlooking Bitter Creek Canyon. Well, it rained Saturday night and into Sunday. I took a walk down the road to the interstate and there were a few soggy spots. Then I saw the weather, Monday was going to rain, off and […]

Solar Install


Uncategorized

The past week was pure joy. To boondock for a full week was just what I needed. Geordie and I walked some of the trails and some of the roads. Some days we just sat. There was a rain which worried me. I thought it might be a gully washer, but it was only enough […]

Equinox


Uncategorized

Today begins the first day of fall on this equinox. The fading light begins. I suppose I am also equalizing. Up at Strawberry Reservoir there was rain and freezing overnight temperatures. Now I’m boondocked near the Utah and Colorado borders and it’s been windy, sunny, and temperatures in the 40’s to 80’s. I arrived to […]

Fall is Coming


Uncategorized

Flaming Gorge was a fantastic spot, but for the early closing on the 10th. It had big views of both reservoir, mountains, and sage brush lands. Why I didn’t take a photo, I don’t know. The peace and quiet was blissful. The high flying ravens could be heard screeching and the local mule deer came […]

Mountain Ranges and Elevation


Uncategorized

I left Hot Springs, SD on the 5th and I’ve been venturing westward through Wyoming. I spent the night in an odd park near Wheatland then hopped on I-25. Rather than heading south to Cheyenne I cut over on Wy 34. What a fun drive as opposed to the interstate. I climbed hills and passes, […]

Westward Trail


Uncategorized

I’m liking moving west, especially turning back the clock with every time zone. I’m making up for last years loss. Here it is, the last big hurrah of summer campers and nomad freedom just days away. It should be easy to drop into a campground without reservations next week, and it may be that I […]
