STAR ENJOYING HIKING JUST OVER A MILE FROM THE MEXICAN BORDER

After a sad and disjointed winter a lot of fun has come our way. My mother’s passing in December was a time of reflection resulting in difficulty getting focused, but like all things, this too did pass, and we moved on to better days. We have a new endeavor we are pursuing. Continue reading

I love nothing more than eighteen wheels rolling underneath us, but living on the road and living on public lands certainly makes one ponder if we really live in the land of the free . . . or not! Continue reading

WELCOME TO UTAH, LIFE ELEVATED

WELCOME TO UTAH, LIFE ELEVATED

It was time for a road trip. The cool weather was moving in and summer visitors were leaving Pie Town, New Mexico. They were heading in various directions, ours being northwest. Our journey would be filled with many visual delights as we traveled along scenic corridors in Utah. Along the way, I met a couple of store proprietors who gave me reason to ponder. Continue reading

Fun times filled the month of May. It was Tal’s birthday and I planned a small party for two. We did all the fun things adults like to do on party days: listen to music, dance a little, have a couple of cocktails, and of course indulge in a bit of birthday cake. Continue reading

We almost became stuck as we headed out onto a sandy flat where we had parked last year with no problem. Tal kept the accelerator floored and by a stroke of luck all 18 wheels kept rolling. When we jumped out to take a look, we could see where the trailer had attempted to dig in. Continue reading

The weather is cooling and Tal was the first one up. He lit a fire. When I climbed out of bed it was warming up nicely and I put a pot of fresh homemade soup on the wood stove to simmer. I sat at our small table and sipped my hot caffeine-laced tea while checking emails and Facebook posts. What a delightful way to start the day – with many more to follow! Continue reading

Venturing out a lonely highway through northern Nevada is my cup of tea. The lonelier the better! However, it is not always easy to find large, level, solid places to pull off the road and park. Having a vehicle with 18 wheels, any of which can get stuck, and trying to turn a truck and trailer around that measure over 65 feet long, well that can be very limiting. Being level is sure nice too so that we aren’t tripping around inside the trailer, especially since we have a wood stove that would be murderous to fall against. Continue reading
