  • Crested Butte

    Crested Butte, Colorado July 2-15, 2018 Crested Butte was 12 days worth of boondocking in an idyllic mountain meadow, reveling in wildflowers, hummingbirds, and friends. I mean, it wasn’t all grand theatrical numbers from The Sound of Music. There were also rainy days of cabin fever, bad attitudes about finishing up our school year, and […]

  • Rabbit Valley

    Rabbit Valley, Colorado July 2-3, 2018 In between our days of fun with friends in Kanab, UT and a chance to meet up with other traveling friends in Colorado we had very little time.  There wasn’t enough time to plan an additional destination in between, so we decided to make the 8.5 hour drive one […]

  • The Hummingbirds

    Kanab, Utah June 2018 Did I mention that we found a hummingbird nest? Brad says that this is the most excited I’ve been about any other single element of our RV Adventure. I would never have asserted such a thing, but I’m also not going to argue with him. When we pulled into our site […]

  • Bryce

    Bryce Canyon, Utah May 25 – June 1, 2018 In our first loop around the US we only visited Bryce Canyon National Park and the surrounding area on one quick day trip.  And like so many parts of Utah, it demanded a second more thorough look. We found a wonderful boondocking spot right between Red […]

  • Kanab, UT

    Kanab, UT June 1 – July 2, 2018 We haven’t stayed an entire month in very many places. We spent one winter in Arkansas with my family, and one in Arizona with Brad’s family. Besides that we have only done the “month stay” in 3 locations…Wenatchee, WA, Pahrump, NV, and now Kanab, UT. Since we […]

  • What’s Next

    April 12, 2019 Three years ago today I responded to a Craigslist ad: “Hello, I’m very interested in the 5th wheel you have for sale. My husband & I & our 2 young daughters plan to downsize this year & move into an RV for 1-2 years and travel the country. Your RV has all […]

  • Peekaboo

    Escalante, Utah May 23-25, 2018 We drove a jaw-dropping section of Hwy 12 through a landscape with surprises around every curve, to our next site near the tiny town of Escalante. This camping area was right off the beginning of a dirt road named “50 Mile Wash”. We read that at the end of 50 […]

  • More Moab

    Moab, Utah May 15-22, 2018 After Clay went back to Chicago, we had another week in the Moab area.  Without the pressure to show off our favorite places to a guest, our pace slowed down drastically.  But we did continue to make the most of this amazing place, where no amount of time ever seems […]

  • Sedona

    Sedona, AZ April 30 – May 4, 2018 Brad found a fantastic boondocking site for us on National Forest land right outside of Sedona. I had never really heard of this crunchy little town, located in what I found to be the most beautiful part of Arizona so far. Sedona is named after a woman […]

  • Labs: A Report by Sunny

    Labs There are a lot of things to learn about labs. A labs life begins with its litters. There are usually seven to eight puppies in a litter. They drink their Mom’s milk until they can eat soft puppy food at 5 weeks old. They can leave their Mom after 8 weeks, but continue to […]

  • ABQ 2

    Albuquerque, New Mexico April 23 – 29, 2018 We met a new force during this stay in NM that we hadn’t been previously familiar with – the spring winds. The wind in ABQ doesn’t seem like mother nature’s usual routine based on father time’s queues. It seems more like a mischievous cousin that waits until […]
