We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, ready to start our long trip east from not so sunny Arizona. It was another cold night, so cold that when I ran the living room slide in, big sheets of ice fell off the top of it. Hopefully now that I’ve left the state the snowbirds can […]

We were exhausted after our long 400+ mile trip Thursday, so in spite of some traffic noise from Interstate 10, we slept soundly. Usually on a traveling day we are up at the ridiculous hour of 7:30 a.m. and are on the road about 10. That way we avoid all of the rush hour traffic. […]

Everywhere you turn in the last week somebody is talking about the latest crisis. This time it’s the swine flu pandemic. Oops, that’s the H1N1 Influenza A outbreak. Somebody apparently decided that we can’t call it swine flu, because pigs (or pig farmers) were getting upset. Somebody e-mailed to ask me if we were still […]

We spent two nights at Mike and Pam Steffen’s place in Salt Flat, Texas, enjoying their hospitality, scratching their dogs’ ears, and telling lies. It was a nice visit.   We’ve known Mike and Pam ever since we started fulltiming almost ten years ago. In our first month on the road we attended Life on […]
