Bye, Bye Betty

I never imagined myself pushing a shopping cart filled with my treasured belongings through a parking lot! The wheels bounced over the pavement as I steadied the cart’s teetering contents. Unconventional, yes, but it was my way of helping Greg unload the U-Haul truck….

The Call of the Wild

There’s a particular travel destination that entices my photography-loving husband to brave snow, sleet and 25-degree temperatures in the spring. It lures him to drive 200-plus miles in a day scouting for wildlife. It lulls him into waiting patiently, eyes glued to his viewfinder,…

Nature’s Lessons

Stealthily, they marched in like a dashed-black-line in motion, creeping into kitchen drawers and across counter tops, scattering only when chased by gigantic paper-towel-clad hands. Ants, they never give up! The southern Calif. rains rolled in drenching Betty, our diesel damsel, washing away repellents,…

To Hold a Hummingbird

To Hold a Hummingbird I held the hummingbird in my palm, expecting it to fly but it cocked its head instead and stared at me. I stared back. It felt light as air and its body whirred like a tiny motor. Moments stretched into…

Petroglyph Pursuit

Petroglyph Pursuit “If we find a petroglyph matching one of these trail markers, we’ll know where we are,”  I said, pulling a crumpled map out of my pocket. “Good luck!”, Greg laughed staring at a tumble of basalt boulders filled with carved handprints, symbols,…

A Capitol Fourth

A Capitol Fourth Are we as different as the stars and stripes on our country’s flag? As divided as the oceans that define our land? I surveyed my fellow concert attendees donned in red and blue rain ponchos. “Are they wearing their party’s colors?”, I…

Going Home

Going Home Cool air breezed across my pillow as I stared into the forested darkness. A light flickered. Then another. “Eyes in the trees,” my young cousin called them. Fireflies sparkled like twinkling lights on a Christmas tree, a storybook ending to an unanticipated experience…

Columbus, Cleveland, and Cousins

It feels like chapters since we embarked on our cross country trip 31 days and 3,173 miles ago. I must confess my biggest challenge is choosing what to see and do (and keeping this blog current!). Like a bug-eyed kid in an amusement park, I…

100th-Running of the Indianapolis 500

“Lady and Gentlemen Start Your Engines!”  The announcement echoed through the stadium sending a shiver down my spine despite the sun’s heat. Sitting shoulder-to-shoulder in the stands at the 2016 Indy 500 was definitely worth our five-day, 2,000+ mile RV trip (See our travelogue below). The 100th-running of the…

Goodbye Reno, Hello U.S.A.

Goodbye Reno, Hello U.S.A. “Big Brown Betty to Raptor One”, Greg called on the two-way radio. “We need a new handle!”, I insisted. Yesterday, we set out on our first cross country RV trip. The thought of hearing this chant for 3,000-plus miles made…

THREE YEARS ON THE ROAD AND……..

Three Years On the Road And….. ……still rolling!  April 24, 2016  marked our third year as full-time RV’ers and still the gypsy spirit calls. Reflecting on this past year, three words play in my mind: simplicity, stuff and support. In many ways, life on the…

Pups and Pelicans

After spending months in the Arizona and California deserts, Greg and I headed to the coast for a day.  A light mist curtained the rocky shores of La Jolla, California as the morning sun sparkled through.  I closed my eyes, inhaled the crisp, ocean…
