Small Town Fun and Upcoming Adventures

June 19, 2017 | 16

As a benefit of visiting someone with a house, I currently have access to a heavy duty vacuum cleaner, something that would be very impractical for me to carry around in my little RV. On Tuesday the 13th I do a thorough dusting and cleaning, using long attachments on the vacuum to get the carpet…

Escape to Sedona

March 19, 2017 | 18

March 14, Tuesday I’m very glad that my friends in Maricopa, AZ have a 20 amp plug in for me to use while I’m visiting. The morning is already heating up and it won’t be long before the A/C becomes necessary. Tammy and I take a morning walk before it gets unbearable. Heading east has…

The Queen’s Laundry Hike

August 9, 2016 | 27

In real time, I left Yellowstone today (Tuesday the 9th), but there’s still one thing I wanted to write about from my time there, a hike I did that was new to me. * * * July 31, Sunday Haze shrouds the mountains in Yellowstone today as I pull onto Fountain Flat Drive, a short…

Camping on a Gold Mine

January 26, 2016 | 26

January 21, Thursday Field trip! So, one of our number at the Xscapers convergence here at Dome Rock just outside of Quartzsite is a bonafide tour guide. He works 6 months on, 6 months off and is currently theoretically off, but I guess when out taking a walk he happened upon a fellow who is…

October 30, 2015 | 28

Happy Friday everyone! My first week of (more than) full-time hours is over and I’ve enjoyed a relaxing if rainy weekend puttering around the RV and not doing much of anything really, it’s been nice. Rainy weather kept me from getting out today like I’d hoped so there is no adventure to blog about, so…

Getting Lucky with Mobile Internet

June 29, 2015 | 31

Last updated 2/17. For the first three years of living in Cas I relied solely on public WiFi and mooching off of friends for getting online, a pretty impressive achievement considering how much I use the internet – for updating this blog, responding to comments and e-mails, keeping up with Facebook Twitter, and other bloggers,…

Friends and Groceries

June 25, 2015 | 30

Last week was quite busy socially. Met up with Bob Wells of CheapRVLiving after work on Tuesday, he dropped by the Old Faithful area and we had lunch. After hiking the Clear Lake Loop with Jayne on Thursday we went up to Canyon Village for ice cream and dropped in on Kirsty and Art, people…
