Zoe and the Serpent

by Zoe I’m having a bad day, last night was my people’s night out. I was busy entertaining myself in the kitchen (that seems to be the only room available to me when my people are away from home). Anyway, I have a new peanut butter bone and time flew by. Sure enough mom arrived […]

Dauphin Island, Alabama, 2010

The brownies are safely stored in the oven, are you ready Ski Cat? Hit it Jackson! We’re heading for Dauphin Island, a barrier island off the coast of Alabama. We heard about this island from our friend Bob Bowers and several full time RV people have mentioned it to us. We tried to stop here […]

Our Desert Trek

In June of 1994 we headed out to Utah to hike and ride the ATV in some of our favorite canyon country. We were tent camping at the time and set up camp on Bears Ears, elevation 8,200 feet. The Ears are two peaks sticking up from a flat mesa. The landscape is easy to […]

Southern Cities – 2006

This adventure through America’s Southland began on April 12, 2006 with the camper loaded with the usual stuff, the Jeep Wrangler in tow and Mattie dog comfy on her spot. The internet, plus articles from travel magazines and current brochures gave us some ideas what we wanted to see this trip. The plan was to […]

New York City with Tricia – 2012

My daughter, Tricia, spent some time in the Big Apple for business the last few years and mentioned she’d like to show us the city. September 2012 was my 70th birthday so what better time to take a special trip. Tricia took care of the details of transportation and lodging, my son, Greg and his […]

Zion National Park – 2012

Fall is a great time to travel, and the open road is calling our name. We are eager to take the motor home out for a week or so and see how we like it. We took a look in our travel library and decided on a trip to Zion National Park in Utah. Zion […]

Colorado with Tommy – Goodbye Camper – 2012

We have so loved the ATV experience, being out in the fresh air in the back country. There is such joy riding together and looking out over the canyons, finding new trails, discovering that Indian ruin on the side of the canyon, taking a break to hike a bit, share lunch on the canyon edge. […]

Southeast – Washington, DC – 2009

  We left Tucson on March 26, 2009 early in the morning. First stop was at the Motor Vehicle Department to get the 5th wheel registered and affixed with a new AZ plate. We have had lots of experience with the DMV, some good, some not so good, so we were a bit apprehensive about […]
