November Monthly Report; Nov 2019

Monthly Report; November 2019

Imagining:

We’re starting to plan our travels in 2020. A swing through southern Utah in the spring tops the list in time to attend a wedding of a best friend in Spokane Washington. After that we may head to the Rocky Mountains, slowly traveling south to store our trailer and spend winter in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Of course all plans subject to change. Continue reading

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Part Two; Nov 2019

In Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula Part One we reported our circumnavigation of the peninsula. This report includes a third member to our party, our friend Aline, who flew in from Paris to join us on our travels. We picked her up at the Cancun airport and, as usual, immediately fled that money pit for laid-back Puerto Morelos just half an hour’s drive away. We checked into the Arrecifes hotel where we had reserved a comfortable two-bedroom suite at $65 per room for the three of us. Exhausted from traveling, we had a delicious seafood dinner and turned in for the night. Continue reading

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Part One, Nov 2019

After storing our truck and trailer at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson Arizona we flew to Cancun on the northeastern tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. We immediately picked up our rental car ($25/day including damage insurance) and escaped from that tourist trap to the tranquil small city of Valladolid, a two-hour drive to the west. Continue reading

Chihuahua Mexico and Tucson Arizona: January – February 2019

In the beginning of January we left our truck and trailer at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson and flew to El Paso Texas. Our nephew Jacobo and his wife Renee met us at the airport with their three year-old daughter, Anita, one of our favorite people on the planet. Then we drove into Juarez Mexico bound for Chihuahua Mexico. We had business to take care of in Chihuahua; visiting friends and family, renewing my Mexican residency visa, and renewing Sonia’s Mexican social security account. 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

January 2018; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; January 2018:

Imagining:

We spent January imagining where to go in 2018 and came up with this: We stored our truck and trailer in Tucson Arizona, so from January through March we’ll travel through Chihuahua and Baja California Mexico with our backpacks. Then it’s off to New Jersey for a long overdue visit with family there. By the end of March we’ll fly back to Tucson, stow away our backpacks, and pick up our truck and trailer from storage. From April through July we’ll be slowly migrating back north through Utah, Nevada and Oregon to summer along the Puget Sound in Washington State. After that the plans get hazy, but I’m sure we’ll figure it out by fall.   Continue reading

November 2016; Monthly Report

Monthly Report; November 2016:

IMAGINING:

As 2016 comes to a close we are thinking about 2017. We’ve pretty much decided to focus on North America next year. Alaska to Baja, or something like that. So, after spending Christmas in Chihuahua Mexico we’ll be heading back to Seattle to gear up for 2017 most likely buying a pickup truck and travel trailer to “camp” our way from north to south until – well, until we get tired of doing that. Continue reading

August 2016; Monthly Newsletter

Monthly Newsletter; August 2016:

IMAGINING:

August was a busy month full of experiences, but as we move along we’ve kept our eye on the future; imagining ourselves climbing through the Andes and sweltering in the Amazon of South America. But traveling through central Mexico was enough to stir anyone’s imagination and we keep discovering new things; about ourselves and the world as we experience more people, places and things.
