Back to the Future

“Destiny is what you are supposed to do in life. Fate is what kicks you in the ass to make you do it.”  ~ Henry Miller As we slip past the second anniversary of the launching of our big adventure (October 24, 2015) and head south for our third winter of full-timing, I find myself […]

Kaleidoscope, Water Hiking and White Water Misadventure

Following this year’s Northwest Tour–our annual early summer trip to visit family and friends in Washington and Oregon–we return home to enjoy what Idaho has to offer (daughter, son-in-law and three of our five grandchildren, as well as the beautiful mountains, lakes and other waterways). We are happy to find our favorite FREE spot is […]

Petroglyph Point Trail

I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Balcony House at Mesa Verde NP and even though we had been climbing ladders and crawling through tunnels AND it was late afternoon and quite warm when we are finished–knowing we are leaving the area next day–I want to fit in a hike afterward. The Petroglyph Point Trail piques […]

A Photo Diary (of sorts) – Spring 2017

 A note about the photo above:  I usually take all the pictures with my phone but lately I’ve asked Jim to take a few with our digital camera as well. He caught this shot that I think is so beautiful it inspired me to write poetry. Not only is he a skilled writer, obviously he’s also […]

South of the Border

I know I said I planned to introduce you to more Slab City residents, but I guess I must have been caught up in helping Jim paint the “barn” and didn’t make the rounds like I had intended. Maybe when we return in the fall our friends will still be there. But for now, let […]

One January Day

In an ongoing effort to stay fit and ready for the next hike, I’ve been walking several times a week while Jim is engaged in his saw and hammer therapy sessions. (I’m sure he will be blogging about his project at some point in the near future.) Since I walk alone, I walk along the […]

Personal Reflections

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour […]

Back to Slab City

As you may recall, when we first decided to check out Slab City (that anomalous place dubbed as “the last free place on earth” near Niland, CA) I was a little nervous, yet still willing. Surprisingly, I found it more to my liking than expected and am happy to be here again for the third […]

And…It’s a Wrap

Once again, the absence of consistently hotrod internet access hampers my blogging progress (sigh). We wrapped up the first year living full-time in our LCC on the road, leaving our Boise home on 11/6 to begin making our way south again…finally. Since our activities of late summer/fall are old news by now, I almost didn’t […]

On to South Dakota

Once again, I find time slipping away as we try to operate without consistent high-speed internet. The blog — which is content-heavy and needs a fair amount of bandwidth — is suffering. But what can a couple boondocking and living on a shoestring budget do? With that said,  I apologize for the lengthy post…just trying […]
