We’ve been having waaaaay too good a time here on the coast, weather and all. You already know how I love the OR coast. I’ve gushed about it, fawned over it, even waxed poetic about it (yes, real live poetry folks), and the fun is only just starting. We’re at the very northern tip [...]
Yesterday I sent my lovely cousin Christina back to Denmark after 2 weeks here with us at Bullards Beach State Park. It was a total whirlwind of a time. Somehow she managed to snag awesome weather (the entire time!) so everyday after work we packed it in with fabulous outdoor activities all within an hour or so [...]
Sadly we’ve come to the end of our boondocking escapade out by Yuma. We’ve headed off to San Diego, coming back after two cross-country trips and one full circle to the city where we started RVing over 2 years ago (it’s an odd feeling I tell you). We’re going to do some checking on our storage and complete various appointments [...]
“…in America Madeira was esteemed above all other wine..”
John Adams, from correspondence Aug 1st 1783
Little did I know that when I tasted my first glass of Madeira last week I was stepping ~250 years back right into the shoes of the Founding Fathers. In fact not only was this wonderful wine a major import of the American Colonies [...]
It all started with a free shot and a strike. The strike actually happened first, although I had no clue until I tried to board a flight in Newark that no longer existed.
“Oh, I don’t think we’re flying that route today. We went on strike you see” said the friendly hostess
“But my baggage is [...]
“I came here last year and found these canyons, and they feel like the heart of the world to me. I’m going to stay and build trails and promote this park”
John Otto, 1907
It was an ambitiously crazy dream and it pretty much took a crazy man to pull it off. John Otto was the [...]
I originally thought about calling this post “1000 pictures of awe-inspiring and absolutely mind-blowing Ancient Puebloan dwellings”, but figured both the title and the number of shots might be somewhat, shall we say, too much? The truth is 1000 pictures probably wouldn’t do it justice. Mesa Verde is enormous and contains so much well-preserved history it’s [...]
We drove into the dry Chihuahuan desert of southern New Mexico on a windy, hot day. Already we could tell the place had a unique charm. By charm I mean the stark, bleak, remotely ”out there” kind of charm that would grip the heart of a mother’s love. This is a place where few may come, yet all who do [...]
“No matter where I might wander, there’s a memory I’ll never lose
The Lone Star shines bright, in my heart tonight
I’ve got the Bluebonnet blues.”
Ledoux Chris: Bluebonnet Blues Lyrics
Well, we’re wrapping up our adventure in Texas and looking back on the 6 wonderful weeks we’ve spent there. There’s no doubt it [...]
For those of you who like this sort of place, this is the sort of place you like.
Well folks, it’s time to round-up the pack, lift the jacks and get going to the next location. We’ve had a fabulous 10 days here in Austin and it’s gone down as one of our favorite big cities. [...]
