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.

Albuquerque’s Enchanted Trails RV Park



2012-09-15 -NM, through the state to Albuquerque-015We spent our time in Albuquerque parked in one of the more unique parks we’ve seen, Enchanted Trails  RV Park.   Built as a trading post in the 1940’s, the building has been left much the same as it was then, but even more unique is the vintage theme is carried throughout the interior and the campground.

If it weren’t for the large motorhomes and 5th wheels parked throughout the park, you feel as if you had just pulled off Route 66 for an overnight stay in the park during the forties.

Rentals are available if you don’t have an RV, furnished inside as they were originally.

Inside the building, the feeling continues.

Family owned and operated, this is truly a unique place to stay.
