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
A friend of Tal’s asked how we would be spending the holidays OFF GRID. Certainly, it’s not the norm, but I assure you it was very special and we were very appreciative of the nature surrounding us. For me it started with spotting an Ocelot that must have weighed a good forty pounds. Continue reading
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
When I first heard the name Pie Town I wondered how the town could have received its name—certainly not from the kind of Pie you bake and eat. 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
LIVING OFF GRID has changed my life in many ways. The most obvious is a loss of weight, increased muscle mass, and more energy than ever.
One thing I know for sure, to live the way we do, optimal health is required.
In looking back at pictures of when I first met Tal, up until now, I have dropped 12 pounds. That is enough to inspire me to stick with our current diet.
I was looking back through our blog, all the way to the beginning, and I have to say that Tal and I have had some great times, as well as witnessing spectacular scenery that delights the soul. 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

We moved near an air force base out in the desert. We could hear the fighter jets practicing all day long. It was very exciting to watch their maneuvers. We can see them just after liftoff and just before they land though we don’t have a view of the runway. They are also too far off to take good pictures though I continue to try. We have a pretty good view of the control tower. Continue reading
