Monthly Report; December 2018

Imagining:

December in Desert Trails RV Park, Tucson Arizona. It’s nice to stay put for a while, but we’re already imagining our travels for 2019. In 2019 we’ll explore more of the western U.S., revisiting some of our favorite places and exploring some new ones. After spending next summer along Puget Sound we’re already thinking about wintering along the Caribbean coast of Mexico.  At least that’s the plan for now, and it’s sure to change. Continue reading

Monthly Report; November 2018

Imagining:

November was all about Tucson Arizona and, Thanksgiving of course.  But the big news was that we became landowners.  Our offer for a small acreage lot in the mountains outside of Albuquerque New Mexico was accepted, so now we’re planning the house we’ll eventually build there.  Meanwhile, we’re enjoying visiting with old friends and making new ones in our winter camp at Desert Trails RV Park outside of Tucson.  Our old friends Laura and Casey from Washington State were also spending November in Tucson and we had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving together in our RV park. Continue reading

October 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; October 2018

Imagining:

Our goal for October was to check out some rural areas outside of Albuquerque and Santa Fe New Mexico as a possible place to establish a home base. As much as we love traveling, we miss having a home base to return to, so we’re looking. So far, the runners-up are small acreage lots in rural areas outside of St George Utah or on the east side of the Sandia Mountains outside of Albuquerque. We’ll know which by the end of November. We’re already imagining the house we’ll build. Continue reading

September 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; September 2018

Imagining:

Southward bound. We’ll land in Tucson for early winter, but wondering where to go from there. France to see friends? Mexico to see whales? Or, will we start building our final home base, either in New Mexico or Utah. We’re imagining a busy winter in any case. Continue reading

August 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; August 2018:

Imagining:

We’re thinking about winter; where to spend it. Arizona? Utah? Mexico? Each has its advantages, but since we need to be in Mexico by late December anyway, maybe just stay and explore more of the Mexican Caribbean. But then we have reservations to stay in Tucson Arizona too. And southern Utah in winter – beautiful. Ah, what choices. One thing we’ve learned; it’ll become clear as we travel on. Continue reading

July 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; July 2018

Imagining:

We spent July in Anacortes Washington on Fidalgo Island in the northern Puget Sound, a two-hour drive above Seattle. With sunny summer days in the 70s and lots of things we’re already thinking about spending our summers here. We still hope to build our home base in Utah, but summers would be spent here, nestled between the Salish Sea and the North Cascade Mountains. Continue reading

June 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; June 2018

Imagining:

We’re already thinking about our travels for the rest of the year. With our reservations set for summer in parks along Puget Sound we’ve started thinking about where and how to return south in the fall. There are so many choices it’s almost overwhelming. Should we drift down the Pacific coast of Oregon, or follow the continental divide south through the Rocky Mountains? Or, maybe just return the way we came through eastern Oregon and Nevada. We feel very humble and happy to have these choices in our lives. Continue reading

May 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; May 2018:

Imagining:

We’re excited about two seemingly contrary ideas; traveling on and building a home. We found a homesite in St George Utah, but it won’t be available until fall, so we’re traveling north to spend summer in the Puget Sound of Washington State. But, these two actions are actually compatible since even after we establish ourselves in a home base we’ll continue traveling from there. There’s a lot on our minds and we’re excited about it all. Continue reading

April 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; April 2018

Imagining:

We spent April in St George, Utah. We were checking out St George as a possible place to establish a homestead. After two years of nomadic life we’ve decided we want a home base from which we’d continue travel. And, we found it; over an acre of beautiful land in a rural community outside of St George. Now we’re imagining the house we’ll build there.  Continue reading

March 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; March 2018

Imagining: March was Baja California Month (plus a quick stop in New Jersey). Besides snorkeling with whale sharks and eating tons of fresh seafood we were exploring. We wanted to check Baja California out as a possible place to establish a home base or, at least a place we’d return to winter. After two years of nomadic wandering, our main goal in travel this year is to find a base to travel from, and a place to return to. Continue reading
