Wrapping Up Our Time in Las Cruces

Our one month stay here is over tomorrow. The past couple of weeks we’ve just been laying low and spending as much time as possible with family.  We have also met some fellow full-timers and gotten to spend a few evenings sitting around the park listening and telling travel stories. This park is a little … Continue Reading


Rain in the Desert

Not everyday can be sunny and 70.  This last week we had rain for a few days. I have always liked the smell of the desert when it rains.  The area needs the water and since the temps were still in the 60s, we were able to get out of the RV and not go… Continue Reading

It may not be Orange County warm, but I also won’t be shoveling any snow either. We are settling into a nice rhythm of days in the 70s and nights in the 40s. There’s no excuse to not get outside.  We moved our parking spot so that the front of the RV faces southeast. This… Continue Reading

The restaurant was a bit different in that everyone ordered a plate and then the plates randomly showed up and were shared around the table. It was good but took a bit of time to get all… Continue Reading


Sunny Days Are Here Again

We’ve finally travelled far enough south to have warm sunny days again. After our stay in the Bay Area and a great visit with my Brother and his family, we had an easy drive to Paso Robles. We stared here for three days and did some exploring to the coast. Our plans were to move… Continue Reading


Oregon Coast

We’ve come to the end of our stay in Portland, time to head someplace warmer and dryer. We had one last family activity. We went to Topgolf to hangout, hit a few golfballs, and watch Kristen try to swing a club with Charlotte strapped to her back. The staff weren’t too happy about that and… Continue Reading
