Full Circle

Travel, back issues, dizzy issues, beautiful scenery, family, and then home again. This is the summary of the last six weeks since I last wrote.  Now here’s the details: Our next stop was Sun Valley, Idaho.  What a glorious place that is!  Neither of us had ever been and we were in awe at all the ski slopes… Read More »

Click, Click, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock

Click, Click goes the camera.  Tick tock goes the clock.  So it can be said for the last several weeks and for our lives in general.  This post is about memories and milestones, interspersed with some amazing scenery.

We left gorgeous Cave Creek and headed for Lake Pleasant RV Park and Marina, about 35 minutes NW of downtown Phoenix.  The first evening was gorgeous, so Richard and I rode our bikes down to the marina.  The marina was lovely and at the end of a long walk over the lake, there was a great bar… Read More »

Continued Family Time in Beautiful Cave Creek

North of Scottsdale is the town and area of Cave Creek.   At 1900 feet or so it is a few degrees cooler than the ‘valley’ of Phoenix.   Once above 1400 feet or so the vegetation changes from desert scrub and the Sonoran desert comes out along with the Saguaro cactus. We switched plans up a bit so we could… Read More »

Southward Ho! (And Some Big News)

10 Things I Have Learned After 3 Days on the Road

 Our puppy is a Poop Snob.  If there’s no grass in it, there’s no ass in it.  Really!  WTF?!?!  Must’ve been the couple of months in a normal backyard.  She better get used to this, cuz the inside of our RV is not a poop field.

And…….We’re Off!

After final goodbyes to our dear friends (some tears on my part, not gonna lie), we hit the road March 2nd.  Our first destination is Cheney, WA to spend some time with our daughter Devon, her husband Jake, and our granddaughters, Melanie and Leah.   We were REALLY nervous about crossing Snoqualmie Pass, as this was our maiden… Read More »
