Tucson; November – December 2018

We finished up 2018 by moving into our winter residence on November 1st. We returned to Desert Trails RV Park outside of Tucson, Arizona where we had wintered last year and immediately ran into friends we met there before and made some new ones. 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. Continue reading

Santa Fe, Albuquerque & New Mexico – Oct 2018

We spent late September and early October drifting southward from northeast Oregon, through southern Utah, southwestern Colorado, and into New Mexico (see our reports on this journey in Travels 2018). Our destination was Coronado Campground; a small RV park operated by the City of Bernalillo, fifteen miles north of Albuquerque New Mexico. Our goal was to investigate some properties where we might establish a home base. So, we set up in Coronado Campground for the last two weeks of October. 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

Trail of the Ancestors; October 2018

After a great stay at Goosenecks State Park outside of Mexican Hat Utah we meandered towards New Mexico. On the way we explored some native American ancestral sites like Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Arizona (pronounced “Canyon de Shay”) and Mesa Verde National Park near Durango Colorado. Continue reading

Oregon into Utah; Oct 2018

Oregon into Utah, September-October 2018:

We left the small Oregon ranching town of Enterprise in the beautiful Wallowa Valley on September 21st. We had reservations in an RV park outside of Albuquerque New Mexico on October 15th. So, we had almost three and half weeks to get from Oregon to New Mexico. Sounds like a road trip to me. 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

The Wallowa Valley, NE Oregon; September, 2018

We left our comfortable camp on the Puget Sound near Anacortes and headed east, into the canyons and mountains of the Wallowa Valley in the far northeastern corner of Oregon, one of our favorite places on the planet. 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
