May 31, 2011 - Charlie Is More Important Than California

Memorial Day, 2011 Unsure how to thank someone for going above and beyond the call of duty, I grilled rib-eyes for Frank and Diane to try and thank them for helping with Charlie. And a very happy dog got some leftovers! Once the meat was inhaled, Charlie went back to the sofa for a nap before bedtime. One reader suggested he was probably sore all over from the attack which may very well contribute to his lethargy. We begin our journey once again on Wednesday heading West then Northwest toward the giant redwoods followed by the Oregon...

May 29, 2011 - Our Worst Day On The Road...

5/28/2011 Helpless. What an awful feeling to be totally helpless when one of our loved ones is in danger. Diane had just come over to borrow some ice and inquire if I wanted to grill something for dinner. We made a plan and I took Charlie for his evening walk. The moment I let Charlie off leash, he ran into the desert chasing rabbits that weren't there but had left their scent to confuse him. He ran around happily as the desert cooled and the dirt no longer was hot enough to burn his feet. When it was time to head back to the coach, I saw...

May 26, 2011 - More From Desert Haven

May 19th, 2011 This is supposed to be our last day at Desert Haven. In my imagination from the comfort of my home on Johns Island last fall I had planned on staying at the refuge for at least one month and perhaps up to 3 or more. It is not to be. Either tomorrow or the following day, winds are fore-casted to calm somewhat and during that window of opportunity, we will now head to Acoma Pueblo in NM (pending the arrival of a mail drop) followed by somewhere between Winslow and Williams, AZ. New plans take us up through Utah and over...

May 17, 2011 - Just Desert

May 15, 2011 Charlie is having a very difficult time adjusting to the desert. He has a great lack of energy so much so that he didn't chase a rabbit this morning as we walked through the sage brush with him off-leash. He hasn't been consistent with his personal business and that worries me a little however he also hasn't eaten much since we arrived. It could be the altitude, the air density, the dryness or...? Come to think of it, I'm pretty much the same way but I wouldn't have chased a rabbit, anyway... Northern California where the...

May 13, 2011 - Bottomless Lakes and The Desert

May 9th, 2011 Record heat is breaking records in Texas. I've seen 102 and 106 was recorded nearby. Since entering this state, we have seen extreme cold temps, sleet, snow, drought and now record highs. It's about time to bid Texas farewell. Neighbors at Palo Duro RV Park alerted me to very nice sites at the Bottomless Lake State Park near Roswell, NM. Nearly full, I was able to reserve a site for two nights which will give us enough time to make a quick run through Roswell (since we'll be in the area) and see the namesake area sinkholes....

Apr 14, 2008 - Goodbye Arizona, Hello New Mexico

We got a nice early start this morning at 9:00 (well, early for us), as we had a long driving day ahead of us. And it was going to be 30 minutes longer due to a planned detour through Las Cruces, with a stop at a frozen custard stand. I know you’re wondering how I could justify a 30 mile detour just to eat frozen custard. Can it really be that good? Is this like the 90 mile haircut? Well, yes, sort of. But before you send the men in the white coats for me, let me say that the custard was not the real reason for the detour. It was just a...

Oct 18, 2007 - Back online

Hi All, Do to numerous requests (well 3 to be exact) we are back online posting some pictures. Also we were offline for a while because I killed the puter and had to erase and reload from scratch. So that took a while to do. We are fairly well settled now in a new rv park, Grande Rio RV Court, right on the Rio Grande River. It is a monthly rental park only so there is lots less traffic coming and going as opposed to a daily,weekly park. Also it is less money and there is grass and trees for Lady. The best part is the Rio Grande River which...
