Two Year Anniversary

Wow, how time flies! Another year has come and gone for us as Fulltime RVers and today we celebrated our SECOND year on the road in Paradise. You don’t believe us? Just check out the photo below: In this case, Paradise is located at an altitude of 5,420 feet in Mount Rainier National Park just […]

Hurricane Ridge

Today we drove up to Olympic National Park and even saw the sun for awhile. We went up to Hurricane Ridge and watched a small herd of deer grazing close by. We had a picnic at 5,242 ft almost a mile high. After our picnic on the summit we drove down to Port Angeles and […]

Cycling Death Valley National Park to Badwater

Yesterday I rode into Death Valley. It was one of my hardest rides. It was mostly down hill but the wind was terrible. I can’t ever remember pedaling so I could go down hill! That is how strong the wind was. It was also 84 degrees but cloud cover helped me from over heating. At […]

It’s been a long time, again.

Wow. It’s been a long time since we last posted our whereabouts or what we’ve been up to! Since we left Fallon, NV we’ve been to Susanville, CA for a couple of days. We then drove to Lassen Volcanic National Park and stayed for an idyllic week (no phone, no internet, no tv – just […]

Bike Ride Yosemite

Been awhile since I last added to our blog, no excuse except I have been having too much fun. I have a lot to catch up on. The desert was a hard place to leave; it really is beautiful in its own way. The Saguaros are neat. We have been to Sedona, Flagstaff and Sequoia […]

Behind on our posts

Blogging is not easy! I don’t know how other people manage to blog daily, but we’re always so busy with every day things – traveling from place to place, upkeep on the camper, daily chores, and visiting beautiful, interesting places – I don’t feel much like doing anything at night but resting up for the […]


We ate lunch here at the base of the Lower Yosemite Falls today! We are currently staying at Yosemite Lakes – a Thousand Trails RV Campground – 5 miles from the West entrance to Yosemite National Park in California. We have a riverfront site – gorgeous! Of course, it can’t compare to the sites of […]

Happy Easter

Just a note from Chuck, Shadow, and me to wish you all a very Happy Easter. Today we’re going to take a ride out to Saguaro National Park (East & West) to check out the cactus and Saguaro blooms. We’ve started to see buds on the Saguaros on base in the past couple of days, […]

On the road again

We departed T or C and Riverbend Hot Springs on the 19th of Feb. Had to replace a tire on the 5th wheel and then on to Roswell and Alien Country. On the way we stopped at Lincoln and saw where Billy the Kid escaped from jail and shot the sheriff, next we stopped at […]

Leaving Guadalupe Mountains

Today we traveled from Guadalupe Mountains National Park near Salt Flats, TX to Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX. As we left Pine Springs Campground we got another beautiful view of El Capitan and Guadalupe Peak (the highest point in Texas). The sun peaked through the clouds to shine directly on Capitan and really made […]
