Who We Are

We sold our home in June, 2007, and spent the next 7 1/2 years traveling full time in a Cross Roads Fifth Wheel. (We had been traveling during our summers for several years before going full time.) We loved the full-time lifestyle! Each summer we spent a month or two volunteering in State Parks, first in Indiana at McCormick's Creek State Park, near our family, then in later years as the grandchildren got older, at the Bluewater Lake State Park in New Mexico. We spent 6 months each winter at Cactus Gardens RV Resort in Yuma, AZ, where I worked mornings in the park office. The remaining months were spent on the road, seeing this great country of ours. Our favorite places are our National Parks. Anita loved photography and the freedom of digital photography, taking sometimes hundreds of photos in a day. We hiked as much as our legs will allow. We also really enjoyed square and round dancing as we travel across country, and meeting all the wonderful people who dance and/or travel.

But as in all things, there comes a time for change, and we decided it was time to create roots once more. In the fall of 2014, we purchased a home in Cactus Gardens, and in the spring of 2015, sold the 5th wheel. Anita also retired in the spring. We will continue to travel each summer, but for a shorter period of time. We hope to continue blogging about those trips, but it will obviously be on a more limited basis than in the past.

On the Road Again

2010-07-31 MT, Hungry Horse - Canyon RV Resort with Steve and Patty Porter 10112010-07-31 MT, Hungry Horse - Canyon RV Resort with Steve and Patty Porter 1002While visiting Glacier National Park, we spent a week at Hungry Horse, MT at the Canyon RV Resort.  Our friends, Steve and Patty Porter, camp host there.   They spend their winters in Yuma; Steve is a square dance caller and Patty cues round dance.  It was fun to spend our afternoons sitting in the shade visiting.  We even attended a Bull Riding event one evening together. 2010-07-28 -2- MT, Hungry Horse - Bull Riding  1013

When our week ended, we headed west toward Idaho.  The route wound through the Kootenai River Country, a beautiful area.  P1060834 In Idaho, we’ve chosen the Blue Lake RV Resort, a small campground under new ownership.  Ron and I were here in ‘04, and are glad to see quite a few improvements to the park.  It’s a quiet little park, a good spot to relax after a busy day.
