Note: In answer to several requests, this is a repost of a 2010 blog. I have just two things to say about our visit to Canyon de Chelly National Monument – “Awesome!” and “If you have never been to this natural wonderland, put it at the very top of your travel plans NOW! You won’t […]

Many have called the red rock country of Sedona the most beautiful scenery in Arizona. But the drive up State Route 89A, which winds for 24 miles through scenic Oak Creek Canyon, is just as memorable, which is why Frommer’s has listed it among the 5 Most Scenic Drives In Arizona. Oak Creek Canyon is […]

If I had to give new RVers advice on how to get the best of their traveling experience, I would tell them with two words. Slow down. Let me emphasize that. Sloooow Doooown! There’s a big country out there and no matter how soon you start RVing or how long you do it, you are […]

With the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished and sent out to our subscribers, I needed a day off before I started on my next writing project. So yesterday Miss Terry and I went for a ride out through the Amish countryside around Shipshewana, Indiana. I can’t think of many better ways to spend […]

We left Santa Fe RV Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona about 10 yesterday morning for the 144 mile trip to our old hometown of Show Low, in the White Mountains. But the difference between the two places would make you think you were in different parts of the country. We started out in the desert, […]

Would somebody please light a fire under my butt? I need to get a lot of writing done, and yesterday I just couldn’t seem to get anything accomplished. I think I got off to a wrong start for the day by getting into a rather prolonged e-mail exchange with a gentleman from England who is […]

I have just two things to say about our visit to Canyon de Chelly National Monument – “Awesome!” and “If you have never been to this natural wonderland, put it at the very top of your travel plans NOW! You won’t regret it!” I have been to the Grand Canyon and the Salt River Canyon, […]

After suffering intolerably for way too long, today we’re going to scratch our hitch itch, at least a little bit. We’re off on a road trip to historic Hubbell Trading Post and Canyon de Chelly National Monument, on the Navajo Indian Reservation in far northeastern Arizona. This is familiar country to anybody who has ever […]

We pulled out of Juniper Ridge RV Resort about 9:30 yesterday morning, drove twelve miles  in to Show Low, and then followed U.S. Highway 60 south 48 miles across the White Mountain Apache Reservation to the Salt River Canyon, a dramatic chasm that folks here in Arizona refer to as the “Other Grand Canyon.”  The […]

We had originally planned to stay in Kingman, Arizona until Monday, visiting my old friend Mike Howard. But a combination of Mike not feeling very well, terrible cell phone and internet service, and a scheduling mix up changed our plans. We had been in contact with the marketing folks at the Grand Canyon Railway in […]
