Monthly Report; October 2019

Imagining:

Our imaginations are caught by our upcoming trip to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula where we’ll spend most of November. Along the way we’ll meet up with our good friend Aline flying into Cancun from France. We’re planning on lots of fresh seafood, climbing around Mayan ruins, lounging on the beach and snorkeling on the reefs of the Mexican Caribbean. Continue reading

Monthly Report: September 2019

Imagining: 

We’re imaging the Mexican Caribbean where we’ll spend November before setting up in our winter headquarters in Tucson Arizona. Time to pack the snorkels and fins. Continue reading

June, July, August Monthly Report; 2019

Monthly Report; June, July, August, 2019

Imagining: 

Unfortunately, when we arrived at Anacortes I had to undergo a hernia operation and had some other medical issues. That caused us to completely revise our travel plans and we spent more time with doctors than we wanted to. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and we didn’t see this one coming. Continue reading

May 2019; Monthly Report

Monthly Report, May 2019

Imagining: 

We’re thinking about our coming year, maybe our last as full-time RVers. We’re looking forward to traveling around the west in our fifth wheel this year, but looking forward to establishing a home base after that. A lot think about. Continue reading

April 2019; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; April 2019

Imagining:

April focused on establishing a home base on property outside of Albuquerque, east of the Sandia Mountains where we plan to build a modest home in the pinyon/juniper forests on the slopes of the mountain. We finalized our plans with a designer/builder that shares our vision (seems like most people want to build expensive, gigantic palaces nowadays and not many interested in our small house). Now our attention is focusing on moving north for the summer; through the Wallowa Valley of Oregon and into our summer residence along Puget Sound. We’ll build next year, but right now we’re getting itchy feet to be on the move again. Continue reading

March 2019; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; March 2019

Imagining:

Our imaginations are going crazy and I wonder, are we trying to do too much? This year we’ll explore building a home base in New Mexico, then travel to the Pacific Northwest for the summer, return to the southwest in the fall, spend a month in the Mexican Caribbean before settling into Tucson Arizona for the winter. Whew, it sounds exhausting before we even start and yet, we can’t wait to do it all. Continue reading

February 2019; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; February 2019

 

Imagining:

2019 is shaping up to be a big year for us. We’re imagining all we will see and do. We’ll start off in New Mexico, investigating if we will build a house there. Then we’ll summer along Puget Sound before drifting back south along the Oregon Coast and southern Utah to Tucson in the fall. Then, if our plans hold up, we’ll spend Thanksgiving on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. It’s a big plan, and almost certainly to change along the way, but that’s what we’re imagining now.

January 2019, Monthly Report

Monthly Report; January 2019

 

Imagining:

By the end of January we were halfway through our four-month stay at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson, Arizona. We’ll leave on March 1st.  We know that date will come soon, so we’re planning our travels for 2019.  In March we’ll camp in the deserts of Nevada, then to Albuquerque to plan building a house near there.  As springtime arrives we’ll drift northwards through the Wallowa Valley of astern Oregon and summer along Puget Sound in Washington State. After that, we don’t know. Maybe we’ll return to Tucson for the winter, maybe we’ll drift southwards along the Oregon and California coasts, maybe we’ll take a long road trip through Mexico to the Caribbean. We’re still thinking about all of that. Continue reading

December 2018; Monthly Report

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

November 2018; Monthly Report

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.
