There is joy and wonder exploring landscapes that cannot be seen from the paved highway. Continue reading Summer in Colorado off the Paved Highway
Hello Everyone! I can’t believe almost six months has gone by since we last posted.
You will remember we shared how we tried camping….or glamping….in 2021. We loved our little jewel box “Freedom”, but alas, camping for the first time in my 70’s was about 10 years too late. We sold the motor home but kept the Jeep we towed. Continue reading Off Road to Everywhere!
The changing seasons and years are just flying by us. We are making the effort to slow down, put the brakes on this forward momentum to take a breath and be present for the joy and beauty that surrounds us. We look at each other and it is hard to believe we are in our seventies….a good friend said age is a state of mind and she believes the seventies are the new fifties!!! I’ll raise a glass to that. Continue reading Happy New Year 2023
Hello and Happy Autumn! This has been the summer we did something we thought we would never do to beat the heat of Arizona. Over the past 10 years we traveled internationally staying in VRBO homes, hotels and with friends. Last summer we tried camping in an RV around the USA. Continue reading Summer of 2022
Our thoughts are of home as we drive south from Lake Superior on this last month of our trip. It will take us four days to travel the 1200 miles to reach our first stop, Heber City, Utah. Continue reading Westward Ho
Minnesota opened her arms and welcomed us with a tornado warning.
Our history of natural disasters included our stay in Lockport, Nova Scotia while Hurricane Dorian churned the ocean and his winds tore down trees and buildings along the shore; being swallowed and blinded in a violent dust storm known as a “Haboob” on a drive home through Yuma, Arizona; and watching a curtain of rain from a monsoon erase homes across the fairway from view and flood the golf course. We did not want to add surviving a tornado to our list. Continue reading Minnesota and the Shores of Lake Superior
For the next six weeks we will be traveling by the seat of our pants. That’s the way Terry likes to travel…no reservations and decisions made on the fly. I’m just the opposite. I’ll research something to death, agonize over my decisions and then make reservations. Well, judging by our experiences In Little Switzerland, Terry may have a good point. Continue reading Little Switzerland – Iowa’s Best Kept Secret
When we began to camp our friends gave us helpful advise. They talked about two important things to remember. The first being to walk around your coach before leaving a campsite. Be sure the connections for the water and electrical are disconnected to avoid the major calamity of pulling them out of the ground. The second was if towing a vehicle be sure the connections are tight to avoid the “toad” disconnecting to race down the highway without you. After several weeks on the road, we discovered a third. Continue reading Calamities and Silver Linings
We buckled up for whirlwind tour of the South. Here are the highlights: Continue reading Southern Highlights
We have been traveling in rural Kentucky for almost a month. The narrow two-lane roads slice ribbons of grey through miles and miles of brilliant green corn fields. Wildflowers bend and sway on tall whisper thin stalks. The densely forested hillsides have been a welcome relief from the desert landscape at home. Continue reading Ode to Kentucky
