NOLA: Nada

Hola! When you are travelling for any length of time, measured either in the number of years you have done it, and/or the length of time you have allowed for a given trip, two of the fundamental concepts that should be at the top of your ‘whatever’ list are, ‘always expect the unexpected,’ and ‘roll with the punches.’ Things were going pretty much according to plan…

Where The Hell Is Benson?

So, here we are in beautiful Benson, Arizona. For about a month.  Really?  Yep. Actually, Benson is central to a lot of pretty cool stuff: It has a half-way decent golf course with a half-way decent restaurant and bar. 75 miles from Chiricahua National Monument 8 miles from Kartchner Caverns 30 miles from Tombstone 60 miles from Benson 80 miles to Douglas 100 miles…

Do Not Throw Old Clothes Or Shoes Out Of The Windows

  OK…here we are on Chapter 4 of our 2015-2016 trip blog and you are probably asking, “Where in the hell did THAT title come from?” Well, I dunno.  Someplace. The end of Chapter 3 left us departing the wilds of the Las Vegas wilderness, headed for our friend’s place in Chino Valley, Arizona, where we stocked up on firewood for our stays over…

Las Vegas, Legends and Whiskey Lickers

Our last exciting chapter left us still in the depths of Death Valley National Park, known to many at ‘The Magical Place.’  Gary whipped up a great Walmart Special turkey breast in his convection microwave (it was remarkably good) and Dee Dee made smashed potatoes (originals from our garden), gravy, peas (also from our garden) and a salad.  Wahoo.  I brought the wine and…

Still In The Magical Place…

So, one of the problems with blogging while travelling is having to deal with crappy connections to the Inner-Net.  I sit here at the Furnace Creek Campground in Death Valley.  It’s the Day-After-Thanksgiving Day and I am thankful for being here with Dee Dee and our crazy friend, Gary (whose back has gone out – he is really suffering, poor guy.)  What I am…

Back To The Magical Place

We’re off! Welcome to the first installment the blog chronicling our travels this winter season.  If all goes as expected (and it usually never does…) we hope to post something about every 10 days or so, but that largely depends on where we are and the Wi-Fi connection situation.  Most of the time, the Wi-Fi where we stay sucks, or is non-existent.  Usually not…

On The Road Again (Well, Almost…)

  Well, Dee Dee and I (and Charlie and Marshall Dylan) have pretty much got the RV packed up and we are ready to head on down the road again for our next adventure.  We are departing on Sunday, November 1; our eventual goal for this trip will, once again, be New Orleans, LA.  But with lots of stops along the way, which include Blackfoot (ID), Death…
